Banned Book Week 2012 & Giveaway

Banned Book Week 2012

 I’m so excited to be participating in this year’s Banned Book Week. This event is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. In my opinion, there should be no such thing as a banned book. Everyone should have an opportunity to whatever book they want! Well, maybe not Fifty Shades of Gray. JUST KIDDING!!

I have a challenge for you! Here is the list of the Top Challenged/Banned Books of2011. My challenge is for you to pick one and read it. That’s it! I bet you’ve already read a bunch on the list. Try the challenge and leave me a comment. I would love to know what you picked!

Here’s my pick:

The Color of Earth by Kim Dong Hwa and Dong Hwa Kim
Published in 2003

First love is never easy.

Ehwa grows up helping her widowed mother run the local tavern, watching as their customers – both neighbors and strangers – look down on her mother for her single lifestyle. Their social status isolates Ehwa and her mother from the rest of the people in their quiet country village. But as she gets older and sees her mother fall in love again, Ehwa slowly begins to open up to the possibility of love in her life.

In the tradition of My Antonia and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, from the pen of the renowned Korean manwha creator Kim Dong Hwa, comes a trilogy about a girl coming of age, set in the vibrant, beautiful landscape of pastoral Korea.

Reasons for being banned are for nudity, sex education, sexually explicit, unsuited to age group.
Look for my review on October 4, 2012!


  1. I don't think I have a favorite banned book...there are so many of my favorites on that list, and my tastes change based up on my mod, what is going on in my life, you name it... books are like good friends, you pick one to hang out with when it feels right :)


I love any and all comments! It keeps me honest!
