I'm participating in the Banned Books Reading Challenge!

The lovely Steph of Steph Su Reads has issued a Banned Books Reading Challenge, and I plan on taking part! You can read more about it and sign up here. This is my main post, in which I will be outlining my goals and linking to reviews.

Often times I find myself recommending book to certain age groups based on their content, but who am I to judge? I look forward to break boundaries and defying those who think they can control me. Bring on those oh so bad banned books.

My goal is to read at least 2 banned or challenged books. I'm starting out small, but maybe I'll read more. I would like to check out:

Crank by Ellen Hopkins
The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier
Olive's Ocean by Kevin Henkes


  1. The Bermudez Triangle is an amazing book! And we'll both be reading Crank for this challenge. I can't wait! Thanks SO much for participating! :)

  2. I'm reading Identical by Ellen Hopkins right now - had yet to check her out - loving it thus far! The only one on your list that I've read is Olive's Ocean which I thought was nice - not sure why this one would be challenged except that it admits to the fact that sometimes kids die (scandalous).

  3. Like Em, I don't know why Olive's Ocean is on the banned list. I hope you'll enjoy the others.
