2016 Banned Books Challenge

Last year, I participated in the Banned Books Challenge, and this year, I decided to do it as well (I’m a bit late putting this up, but that doesn’t mean my books don’t count!) Click here to see the banned books I read last year, and keep reading to see the ones I’ve read in 2016. Any banned or challenged books count, and since I love reading banned books, I am again aiming for the goal of: Leader of the Revolution, meaning I will have read 15 or more banned books by the end of the year! (Though my real goal is to beat last year’s 20.)
