Personal Banned Books Challenge

Spread the love

I decided I wanted to do my own banned books challenge. I found this list of the most frequently banned books in the 1990’s and I plan to read every one. However since I have so many challenges going, I’m not putting any time limit on it. Some of the books on this list are already a part of other challenges too.

If I’ve reviewed the book here, it will be a link.

Some are picture books and some, I’ll never understand the reasoning.
