don't know which book shocked me

Right now I'm stuck in dark visions by L.J. Smith.

That's an interesting question. To Kill a Mockingbird, I think. It raises a lot of pertinent questions about social divisions and class lines. I think its relevant in today's society as well.

Same as Ashleigh, To Kill A Mockingbird really shocked me. It's a book that I know I can read a thousand times and will still find it awesome!

I've read many banned books but none of them shocked me. I found them raw but in a good way!
Thank you for the giveaway :)

I think I was a bit shocked by Lady Chatterley's lover when I first read it in high school (or at least shocked that such a book was written in 1928)!

Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction

I don't think I have read any Thanks for being in the hop and the great giveaway.

TO Kill A Mockingbird!

I think I can see where most of the banned books were banned although of course I do not agree. Normally has to do with the time, place, and cultural norms/no-no's at that point. Thanks!

Black Beauty by Anna Sewell!! What can possibly be offensive about a tale of a horse?

Thanks your for sharing the hop and the giveaway. I would have to agree with Black Beauty. evamillien at gmail dot com

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Great book.

Black Beauty definitely surprises me!

To kill a mockingbird for sure!

I haven't read any banned books yet. I would love to be shocked by a book. :D

I don't think I have ever come across a banned book, I know its big in USA but not sure about in my own country.

Hmmm, maybe 50 shades of grey? Lol

The classics really. How can they be "banned"?

the fault in our stars :/

Charlotte's Web! Really?! Every child should read this book and not at all sure why it was banned. Because the spider dies..GAH!

Barrie

Wow, Charlotte's Web was banned? That's definitely a huge shock. Crazy stuff!

I haven't actually read too many banned books but I think The Hunger Games was one...the horror in the world of that book just amazed me. Thanks for the giveaway!

twilight....because i like twilight series...i can't understand wht they banned them...

Hunger Games series maybe? Well, this series did shock me, but in a good way.

The darkest child. That one shocked me!

Hunger Games!

the golden compass

Tom Sawyer - Huckleberry Finn - by Mark Twain -

I have no idea if the book that I'm reading was banned, based on the comments maybe the Hunger Games.

The Witches by Roald Dahl. That's just crazy!

To Kill A Mockingbird really shocked me

I'd say the hunger games or the fault in our stars :D

The Harry Potter series.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I don't really know all the banned books because I'm not sure if we have any banned books in my country. Anyway, I don't care if the book is banned or not. I just have to like it. Thanks for the great giveaway!

I have absolutely no clue..

Harry Potter!

Harry Potter; I was shocked bc how could anyone NOT love hp?????
Mary G Loki

At The Walks End by Shel Silverstein. Why such a beautiful book poem like that can be banned?

Flowers in the Attic by V.C Andrews :)

I'm really surprised that The Golden Compass was banned. I didn't think it should have been

The Hunger Games

Lord of Flies - I can see why it's banned, I just can't see why would anyone think it's book worth reading.

I don't know if I've read any banned books.

I don't think that I have ever read a banned book that shocked me but I was shocked when I found out that books like Harry Potter were banned! :)

Joana @ Joana In The Sky With Books

Captian Underpants. Especially since my 9 year old reads them.

Hunger Games!

The Perks of Being a Wallflower!

Lord of the flies- bored me to death

The banned books list never shocks me. I just ignore it and read what I choose.

It never shocked me. Just made me sad, how little is tolerance's worth for some people.

Probably The Hunger Games...

13 reasons why!

I couldn't remember reading any banned books :)

the hunger games, i know that is a little violent, but not for be banned!
thanks!

Out of the above-Ella Enchanted. Over all- Mark Twain. Beign he has been a historic figure for literature for over 100 years and now we ride his case for writing about how life was during his time.

Harry Potter..I can't imagine why anyone could find something negative in that book.
Thanks for the giveaway!

The fault in our stars!!

THE LORAX by Dr. Seuss ( I KNOW! )

And Then There Were None - I think Agatha Christie is classic.

The Lorax!!!

Eleanor&Park

I was honestly surprised that The Hunger Games made the list, although I should've known. I guess since I adore this series so much, I assumed everyone else loves it too. But I get how some people would be upset by it.

That Was Then, This Is Now
I love the books by S.E. Hinton

Thanks :)

I was really shocked to see Captain Underpants on the list, read these with my son when he was in elementary school and he (and I) loved them LOL

The Harry Potter series!

Very shocked on To Kill a Mockingbird.. like seriously that was a HS English read. Its crazy.

The Harry Potter series for sure. I am a huge Potterhead.

Harry Potter is my all time favorite! I can read those books over and over again and I still get stuck in them.

It was really surprising that Harry Potter was banned. It was for such a silly reason as well!

I haven't read any banned book yet.

It didn't shock me that it was banned, but it shocked me that Harry Potter was number one on the list. Nothing regarding censorship really surprises me anymore.

Can't believe To Kill a Mockingbird was banned crazy world we are in now that literature gets banned.... freedom of speech..yeah right.

The Bridge To Terabithia.

I'm surprised To Kill a Mockingbird is on the list.

A bunch shocked me like Harry Potter and Perks of Being a Wallflower. Thanks!
