In honor of banned books week, I decided that I would compile a list of banned books that I have read. I’m sure that there are more banned books that I have read, however finding a list of every book that has been banned or challenged isn’t the easiest thing to do.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Candide by Voltaire
The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
Beloved by Toni Morrison
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neal Hurston
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Are You There, God? It’s Me Margaret by Judy Blume
Gossip Girl Series by Cecily von Ziegesar

It’s crazy how many books have been banned!! Great list. There’s quite a few classics on there that I hope to read soon!
It really is!
