Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.
With September 27-October 3 being Banned Book Week, this week’s Top 5 Wednesday subject is banned books. I could go on and on about censorship of literature, namely Young Adult literature, but I won’t bore you all with a speech that you’ve heard a million times before. So we’ll just jump right into my top 5 banned books.
5.A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle
I barely remember what this book is about but I remember being about 6-7 and my mom reading this book to me and my sister. And just because I can’t remember the details of this book, doesn’t mean it didn’t sculpt me as a reader from a very young age.
4.The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This book changed my life and I think it’s a very important piece of literature for readers of all ages.
3.The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games is one of my favorite books of all time and I honestly believe that it changed literature, especially YA.
2.Looking for Alaska by John Green
Again, one of my favorite books of all time and words can’t begin to express what I feel for this book.
1. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
The Harry Potter series has changed my life and I cannot imagine not being able to have access to the book series that has made my life better.
