  2. There are lots of banned books that I love and that I think are important to read. I guess my favorite would be To Kill a Mockingbird, and I would love to win a copy of Brideshead Revisited. (Already following you on Twitter as mybookstrings) Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Wow! I had no idea that _Are Your There, God? It’s Me, Margaret_ is one of the top 100 most frequently challenged books! I read it in either 4th or 5th grade and absolutely *loved* it. I think I might need to go buy it for my 12 year old daughter.

    I’ll have to look through the Banned/Challenged list to see what else shocks me. And I followed your writer page on FB. 🙂


  5. The Book Thief! Cool giveaway 😀

    I would like to have a copy of A Storm of Swords Part 2.

    My favorite banned book is Harry Potter – of course.
    The book I’d love to win is The Sun Also Rises

  8. I love ALL the books! Especially the banned books. I think my favorite are probably the Harry Potter books, because what a silly reason to ban them right? That and I read a post this morning about a mom re-writing them without magic and with a religious overtone?! (SAY WHAT!?)

    If I won I’d love a copy of Beloved. It’s one of those books I’ve meant to read so many times, but just never gotten around to 😦


  9. My favourite banned books are Looking for Alaska, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and To Kill a Mockingbird. I’d love to read either Fight Club, The Handmaid’s Tale or Brave New World.

  10. Wow! It’s hard to pick a favorite looking at the list! I’d like to say pretty much all of them on the challenged classics list. But I’ll go with the Harry Potter Series. The banned book that I would request if I won would be Looking for Alaska by John Green.


  11. My favorite is The Great Gatsby, with To Kill A Mockingbird slightly behind 🙂
    I would love to win The Grapes of Wrath; I have been wanted to read it for The Classics Club.

  15. Thanks for participating! I’m sure it comes as no surprise that my favorite banned book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. But there are a ton of favorites on this list….if I won, I would choose Brave New World. Somehow, I still haven’t read this one % don’t own a copy.


  16. My favorite banned book: A Time to Kill by John Grisham. But I also very much enjoyed A Wrinkle in Time as a kid. Wanted banned book: Looking for Alaska by John Green. His amazing book, A Fault in Our Stars is facing some banning action this week. Thanks for being a part of Banned Books Week!
