In honor of Banned Books Week and the delightful Hunger Games trilogy making the top ten list of challenged books, I am rereading Catching Fire, the second book in the series. More precisely I am relistening to it in the audiobook format. I am enjoying it just as much as the first time I read it several years ago. I had forgotten so many details and specifics that it feels fresh and new to me.
Pick up a banned book this week for a first or second time and refresh your memory of how much you really liked this book in the first place.
Here are a few I recommend, all from the top ten banned/challenged book list of 2012:
-The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
-Looking for Alaska by John Green
-Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
-The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
-Beloved by Toni Morrison
-Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
