Banned Book Week Day 2 Posts And Giveaways!

Good morning!  I normally do not post on Mondays but instead let the Monday meme ride, but it is banned book week so if you are looking for Monday, What Are You Reading, link up here to that.

However – if you are those book readers who enjoy bad horrible filthy books… this is where you want to be.  😀 

LOL…. just kidding… but if you have followed the Banned Books lists and reviews then you know… there are some WONDERFUL and AMAZING books that have been banned and challenged through the years and honestly?  I just think it is really fun to celebrate them!

Today I have a whole other group of Banned Book reviews and giveaways and I am hoping you will take time to show them some comment love and check out what they have to say!  😀  Remember, I am running a giveaway package this week and all comments on all the banned book posts that I have shared with you during this week will be entered. 

 

 

Here are todays posts:

 

Liesel from Musings On Fantasia has a post up called:  Three Reasons Why Banning Is Not The Answer and a sweet giveaway!

 

Tracy from Pen and Paper (she cracks me up!) has a post up of Dr. Suess’s Green Eggs and Ham – see I told you the bans would surprise you!

 

Sarah from Sawcats Book Blog shares her thoughts on the book 1984 (one I have yet to read!) and a great giveaway!

 

Charity from The Bookworm Fairy continues her banned book series with Catching Fire and if you have not seen the awesome package she is giving away you really need to check it out!

 

Shannon from Giraffe Days is talking about The Color Purple (amazing book if you have not read it yet!) and another great giveaway!

 

Rachel at Resistance Is Futile has a post about The Headless Cupid (new to me) and it looks interesting!

 

Stacy from A Novel Source is posting about The Dead Zone (perfect for Halloween!!!) and she is also having a giveaway!

 

Shelly Rae at Book’d Out is sharing her thoughts on The Perks Of Being A Wallflower  ( a book I will be reviewing this week too!) 

 

 

So that is today’s list!  I have several reviews ready, not sure which way I am going today yet but know… there will be something banned going on here 😀 

In recap – all of yesterdays posts and giveaways  from Banned Book Day 1 are still going all week so please stop by and check them out as well!

Do you see any books on this list today that surprise you?

    Green Eggs and Ham! People have their minds in the gutter to think this book has sexual references. Wow.

    Seriously?? Dr. Seuss?? What next??
    Again, big thanks to you, Sheila, for all you do to keep us in the know!!
    P.S. I never told you how much I love, love your book room…it’s a wonder you ever leave there =D

    1. Thanks Lannie for the comment and the book room love. I suspect when I get old and tired of the bike riding and the mud runs and the craziness I tend to get myself into… that will be my place of constant sanctuary….
      Of course, that is still 500 years off…. ha ha! 😀

  3. Thank you for sharing these posts! The censorship level is ridiculous especially on a book like Green Eggs And Ham. I adore The Perks Of Being A Wallflower so I’m looking forward to reading your thoughts on it. 🙂

  4. Thank you for the opportunity to take part in this event, the extraordinary list of banned books came as such an eye opener to me. I’ve enjoyed visiting all the other bloggers you mentioned today (though I couldn’t find Stacy’s post) and look forward to visiting more over the week.

    I had forgot all about Zilpha Keatley Snyder. Surprised to see The Headless Cupid on there and remember reading several of her books.
