Banned Book Week

Yeah. Banned Book week is here/comming up. The dates on all the sites are screwed up. Anyway, here are

1. Scary Stories (Series) by Alvin Schwartz
Ok. These books are creepy. The pictures are creepy. You have no idea how extreme one of the books has made my fear of spiders grow to.

2. Daddy's Roommate by Michael Willhoite
Um, yeah. Sure

3. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou
Horribly boring, can't see why anyone would willingly read it in the first place.

4. The Chocolate War - Robert Cormier
Teenager refuses to sell chocolates. He questions authority, therefore the book promotes independence, therefor must be banned. Cormier has good plots, but hate his writing style.

5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain
Dispised this book with the very pit of my soul. No point, and horrible plot. Banned for the word nigger. O.K.

6. Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
Hated this one too. No one likes Steinbeck.

7. Harry Potter (series) - J.K. Rowling
Banned for the ammount of innuendos and phallic symbols. Really, vibrating balls? Don't tell me these books aren't perverted.

8. Forever - Judy Blume
One of THE most boring books out there. Makes kinky sex boring.

9. Bridge to Terabithia - Katherine Paterson
Rather sad ending. Pointless book. Title is rather difficult to spell.

10. Alice (series) - Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Just random talk about sex. And phedophiles.

11. Heather has Two Mommies - Leslea Newman
Book promotes lesbian relationships. Therefore, must be banned. Gods how I hate our society.

12. My Brother Sam is Dead - James Lincoln Collier and Christoper Collier
Historical novel. Slight violence. If it's banned for that, I'd like to see wht they have to say about Edgar Allan Poe, where god forbids, people murder each other.

13. The Catcher in the Rye - J.D. Salinger
Hated this book. Salinger really need to find something else to write about.

Probably banned for killing infant child. Really good book. Different spin on the concept of a supressed future people.

15. It's Perfectly Normal - Robie Harris
Have never heard of this.

16. Goosebumps (series) - R.L. Stine
Read most of these as a kid. Are rather good if you're under a certain age. Have no idea why they'd be banned.

17. A Day No Pigs Would Die - Robert Newton Peck
Banned for animal slaughter. Might as well go and ban "Charlotte's Web" while you're at it.

Banned for Lesbian relationship. Again, hate out society.

21. The Great Gilly Hopkins - Katherine Paterson
Girl doesn't like foster family. She schemes.

22. A Wrinkle in Time - Madeleine L'Engle
