Ok friends, today I’m going to share with you a few of the many, MANY books in my TBR (that’s to be read, for those who don’t love acronyms as much as I do) pile. I’m hoping to make this a weekly thing, but we’ll see how long it lasts. Since this week is Banned Books Week, here are a few banned or challenged books I have yet to read:
1. Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley
I’ve been reading a lot of YA dystopian novels lately, so I think it’s time to read one of the classics.
2. The Giver, by Lois Lowry
I’m kind of ashamed to admit that I’ve never read this one. I loved Number the Stars and the Anastasia series, but The Giver never appealed to me as a kid. Now that I’m more a fan of dystopian novels, and the final book in the series is out, I feel like it’s time.
3. The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood
Another dystopian novel. I just love them…so why not read all the ones that have been banned?
4. Slaughterhouse-Five, by Kurt Vonnegut
I know, I know. Another one I should have read a long time ago. That’s why it’s on the list!
5. Lord of the Flies, by William Golding
Pretty much an early version of The Hunger Games. ‘Nuff said.
What’s on your TBR list? Any banned books I should be reading? Let me know!
