Monsters LOVE Banned Books!


Wow! It's time for Banned Books Week Hop again.  It seems like not so long ago we made this video for Banned Book Week.  We are readers and since you are visiting us, we guess you are too.  This is a great hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and I Read Banned Books.  There are lots of other blogs participating in this hop and they are sharing their Banned Book Giveaways, so make sure you visit
http://iamareadernotawriter.blogspot.com/ for the list of all the blogs participating.

Also make sure you check out the ALA website for lists of banned and challenged books and activities:


Since we are siblings sometimes we can't agree on things. We have so many banned or challenged books we love to read, that we couldn't agree on what we wanted to give you.  So, we decided YOU should CHOOSE the right (banned or challenged) book for YOU.
To see a list by year of the most challenged books click here:

Here are the Rules:
The Hop runs from 9/28- 10/6.
1. Become a PUBLIC follower of our blog (that's so we can see you).
2.  Leave a comment on this post and include your email so we can get in touch with you if win.

Here's the what we have-- 
a $20 dollar eGift Card to Barnes & Noble for one follower.
Some of the Monsters favorite Banned or Challenged Book are:
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
In the Night Kitchen by Maurice Sendak
Captain Underpants Series by Dav Pilkey
Goosebumps Books by R.L. Stine
and
Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
We can't imagine our lives without these books.

  18. I was shocked to see the list of banned books. I knew some of the classics I love were on the list, but I can't get over some of the new ones. How stupid to ban a book!

  22. Thanks for offering such a great giveaway and for being part of the hop. There are so many great books on the challenged list it amazes me how many of them can be opposed at all like The Diary of Anne Frank.

  32. Some of my most favorite books have been banned and/or challenged which include Thirteen Reasons Why, Harry Potter, Twilight, Bridge to Terabithia... the reasons are ridiculous too. It irks me to know that just a small group of people can ban books, but yet a small group of people (or a even a large group of people really)try to do something more important and we don't get support at all.
