This week’s question is:
In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?”

I haven’t read a single one of the books on this year’s challenged/banned list! Not even Slaughterhouse-Five, though I do love me some Vonnegut.
I guess the reason I’m not too familiar with Banned/Challenged books is that the majority of them are YA/children’s books…which are genres I typically avoid. & a good number of the classics are books never assigned to me in school.
That said, my favorite would have to be To Kill a Mockingbird. I refuse to believe there could be a better literary figure than Atticus Finch. This might or might not have contributed to a slight obsession with Gregory Peck.
Also, The Great Gatsby. Flawless. Perfect. Brilliant. Extraordinary. I could go on and on. I. Love. That. Book.
Other favorites include Harry Potter, East of Eden, A Farewell to Arms, & The Lord of the Flies.
