Banned Book Week Giveaway Hop


Welcome to the Banned Book Week Hop hosted by BookHounds. Banned Book Week is observed one week a year in the US to bring attention to the many books that are challenged or banned.  This year has been no exception, most notably with the case involving Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers.  The Freedom To Read Foundation, which is the legal arm of the American Library Association helps organizations and individuals fight against books bans and challenges.  You can find out more about what they do here.  You can also find lots of downloads and other ways to bring awareness by going here.

As I always say, you have the right to monitor what you read and what your child reads, but you do not have the right to make that decision for everyone else. 

One winner will get to pick a book from the list below, and every book on this list has been banned or challenged at one time.


Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Earth, My Butt, and other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth
Looking For Alaska by John Green
Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan



This is open internationally. You must be 13+ to enter.

    I’d pick Looking for Alaska. It’s my favorite John Green book. I did have a copy, but I lent it to someone and never got it back. ):

    The book I would choose would most likely be Looking For Alaska by John Green. I’ve only ever read one of his books and it wasn’t Looking For Alaska.

  3. You’ve made this a very difficult choice. There are three books I want to read because I can also share them with my daughter. I think I’ll pick The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things. Thank you for choosing so many wonderful banned books. 🙂

    I’d choose “Eleanor & Park”, by Rainbow Rowell. I’ve been meaning to read that book for ages, and now I’m curious about the fact that it was banned/challenged! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I want to read “The Earth, My Butt, and other Big Round Things” by Carolyn Mackler, since I represent this book 🙂

    I think think I would choose “Eleanor & Park” by Rainbow Rowell. It’s one that I haven’t read, and I’ve heard many good things about it!
