Name names. Add to the list.
So, I’ll be starting things off with a review of John Green’s Looking For Alaska, which I’ll hopefully have up within the week. It’s the last book I read and it also just so happens to be banned/contested for its sexual content.
Teen sex wasn’t a problem when my freshman English class read Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, but I guess my teacher was just that cool. He did once do a dramatic reading of a rather naughty courtly poem so perhaps my school was edgier than I gave it credit for.
Anyway, at some point I will definitely be covering Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Lady Chatterly’s Lover, Their Eyes Were Watching God, Julie of the Wolves, And Tango Makes Three, anything by Ray Bradbury, and The Canterbury Tales (featuring the very first sex scenes ever penned and published in the English language). If there are any banned, challenged, or contested books you’d like to hear about, feel free to tell me in the comments.
