Welcome to the Banned Book Week Giveaway Hop hosted by BookHounds.
Perusing through the list of banned books throughout the years, including classics and modern novels, makes me wonder at some of the reasoning behind the removals. A few of them caught my eye, either because I read them or seen the movies.
This list also motivates me to read these restricted books even more.
One of the most banned books was Harry Potter. All three books made it on the list. Citing reasons of “anti-family, occult/Satanism, religious viewpoint, violence”.
To see a list of the banned books go to bannedbooksweek.com.
