Banned Book Week!
So as you may know, this week is honoring banned books!
Now a lot of my favorite books are or have been banned. I once saw a quote that went something like “All banned books are obviously worth the read”. SO TRUE! (Well maybe not all of them...)
So today I’m going to simply make a list of some of my favorite banned books! :D
