Banned Book Week!

Starting tomorrow and ending 29th, September, it's Banned Book Week. This is a week which calls out all the books which have been banned in the past and present day and to ask the question of why they were banned.

There's been plenty of books today which were banned when they were first published way back when. 

I've been proud to say that I've read quite a few banned books in my time. From 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower' by Stephen Chbosky to 'Fahrenheit 451' by Ray Bradbury and 'Alice's Adventures In Wonderland' by C.S. Lewis - and they're all great books to get into the pages of. However they all have been banned for one reason or another; and really, they were written by the authors not because of the adult content set within the young adult audience-style written or the drugs and alcohol mentioned between the lines of the prose. 

Books are banned for many reason and they aren't only books which are written for adults or young adults either - some of them are written for children, which I find amazing. 

Now, this week is upon us, go out and find one of those banned books and read, read, read! Enjoy the banned book - from the past or present - and try to figure out why it was banned in the first place. Or you can click on one of the links below and find a banned book to read up on and find out why it was banned. Until my next post, happy reading!
