BBW Day 6: Re-cap

Banned Books Banner

 

A twelve hour work shift (9am-9:30pm) yesterday, plus the first case of strep throat I’ve had in a year have pretty much kept me away from the computer. Unfortunately, this means I missed yesterday’s planned review of The Golden Compass and today’s review of Angus, Thongs and Full-frontal Snogging. So I don’t completely miss two full days of Banned Books Week I thought I’d just do a re-cap of the books I’ve talked about so far this week.

Coming tomorrow: review of The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. Saturday will see a review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. I’m actually reading Perks for the first time this week; I figured I won’t just blog about banned/challenged books, but read one. Since I have been meaning to read Perks for ages, I decided now was a good a time as any! So far I’m liking what I’ve read.
