I Want Your Banned Book Reviews!

To celebrate our freedom to read, I'm going to fill this post with links to YOUR reviews of banned and/or challenged books!

Simply post a comment that includes the link to your review and I'll add it to this post. At the end of the week I'll republish the revised post for everyone to enjoy.

Not sure if you've read a banned/challenged book? The the American Library Association has lots of lists at the bottom of this page.

Feel free to include as many links as you want. Come on, celebrate with me!



Reviews of Banned and/or Challenged Books
... I'm waiting for your review!

Thanks for doing this. I was just looking for banned books week reviews!

Here I review In the Night Kitchen and call for everyone to read a banned book to their child.

Here's my review of The Giver.
