Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books To Read If Your Book Club Likes Banned Books

2016 Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is “Top Ten Books to Read if Your Book Club Likes _____.” For this week’ topic I decided to list ten of the most commonly challenged books in the United States. Since Banned Book month just recently passed, banned books seemed like a great topic for a book club list. For September, the book club I’m in (Mocha Girls Read) read Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. The other books on this list are books that have left me scratching my head on why it’s banned (Part-Time Indian), while others should never leave the list, IMHO (American Psycho). Have you read any of these books? If so, do you think they deserved to be banned? Why, or why not?

      Both of those, The Hunger Games and Fahrenheit 451, are pretty good reads, and give you a lot to think about after you’re done. I like to read banned books to see if I can figure out why they were banned. Some are easier than others.

  1. Great list! I’ve read about two from these: The Colour Purple and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian. I’ve yet to read the others though. My favourite banned books are the ones written by Ellen Hopkins though. She’s amazing.
