My favorite banned book is Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland while my favorite challenged book is Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak. :) There are so many great books out there, we shouldn't be denied the chance to read any of them. Thank you for this giveaway!

Dana said...

Great giveaway! My all time favorite banned book is 'And Tango Makes Three'. It is so sweet.

Giselle said...

Thanks for the giveaway. Is it weird that I didn't know anything about banned books!? Are these banned in the US? Maybe it's a Canadian ignorance thing? haha

I remember a book which was banned for years in USSR where I grew up, and I still love it to bits. It's The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov.

Julie S said...

I didn't even know some of those were banned!! I loved the Hunger Games. Before that my favorite banned book was DaVinci Code.

Fahrenheit 451!

Cameo Renae said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I'd have to say my favorite banned book is Speak, by Lauire Halse Anderson.

TG said...

So many books have been banned, it's hard to choose! But I'll go with Fahrenheit 451 as well, because of the irony of banning a book about book banning!

Destiny said...

My favorite banned book I think would be The Hunger Games!! It is totally awesome!!!!!!!

juhinareadsitall said...

wow, didn't know some of these books were banned. i LOVE to kill a mockingbird. ironic that i read this during high school english class :P

Llehn said...

Boy's Life - Robert McCammon.

May-Day_Aura said...

I loved "Alice in Wonderland" and "A Wrinkle in Time" (read both when I was a kid and was sad to see them on the banned book list). I'm also a big fan of Shakespeare and I know several of his plays were banned at certain points (including one of my favs "The Merchant of Venice"). Two more banned "classic" books that I enjoyed when I read them in high school were "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "1984".

I'm counted The Body of Christopher Creed as my favorite banned book - I'm not sure if anyone's actually banned it, but it was removed from my state's Battle of the Books list one year in middle school.

Sky said...

Great book choices. Love your blog!

Bookish in a Box said...

My favorite banned book is probably Harry Potter (which is a series, of course, so I guess they'd be my SEVEN favorite banned books).

Chey said...

My favorite is The Perks of Being A Wallflower. :D Too bad my boyfriend got juice all over the bottom of the pages. It's practically ruined for me and he just doesn't understand that even if it's just a stain, it's not in good condition anymore. :( Anyways, thanks for the giveaway!

SpadesHigh said...

I've actually read that the Twilight Books are considered banned books because of the whatever miniscule presence of sexual content/tension and some religious implications **shrugs** I don't know, but I like em, and more than likely you read it already =) And Harry Potter was motioned as a banned/challenge book too =P
But one book that I've been meaning to read is 'Go Ask Alice' by Beatrice Sparks

LoriStrongin said...

Yay for Banned Books and those that read them! My favs are Catcher in the Rye and Tango Makes Three.

Seriously though, why some books (or any for that matter) are banner, I'll never know. People have way too much time on their hands if they feel the need to force their hateful close-minded worldview on anyone who will listen.
