#two4tuesday @TheSpineView

🌎 You know...I don't know that there are too many books set that far back that I've read! 😱 Clan of the Cave Bear comes to mind, and that was really good!

🌎 I would have to say London, by Edward Rutherford. It's historical fiction that follows the city of London from many many years ago to close to present day! It's fabulous!

TheSpineView Thanks for playing! 5h

#BannedBooksWeek

This beautifully written memoir written by a young man talking about his experience growing up black and gay, made it on the top ten list of most banned books of 2021. It is not surprising to note that the reasons for its constant banning is due to its LGBTQ+ content. The majority of the books on that list were banned for the same reason. 📚📚📚

#BannedBooksWeek

Walk Two Moons is not a book I would have ever thought would be banned or challenged but this past year it has been on the receiving end of a lot of negative attention. It's been challenged and banned in various places due to 'distressing topics for young people' such as childbirth and women screaming in labor. 🙄 *rolls eyes*

Bookwormjillk What? Really??? 6d
Branwen @Bookwormjillk Yup! Sadly, this happened in Tennessee earlier this year. 😡 6d

#BannedBooksWeek

Out of Darkness, by Ashley Hope Perez, is a historical fiction novel that takes place in a small Texas town in the 1930's. It won the 2016 Tomás Rivera Book Award and a 2016 Printz honor for excellence in young adult literature. 📚

It is also on the list of top ten most challenged books of 2021! 😱 It has been challenged, banned, and restricted for depictions of abuse and because it was considered to be sexually explicit.

If you are a fan of Tolkien and The Hobbit, you're not alone! It's such a wonderful classic fantasy story that can be enjoyed by people of all ages!

But! It is a book that has been challenged/banned in the past! 😮 In fact, in 2001, a Christian extremist group burned copies of The Hobbit and other books by Tolkien because they felt the books contained witchcraft and satanic themes!

Branwen @Kimberlone RIGHT?! 💕📚 @RaeLovesToRead I'm completely obsessed! 😍📚💕 @GingerAntics Honestly, I absolutely love it! It's one of my favorite series by him! But that being said, it is very different from Cerulean Sea and Whispering Door. It's still quirky, but also has some pretty dark moments. There is also a pretty detailed sex scene near the end of the book! 2w
Branwen @GingerAntics The only other thing that might be worth mentioning is that the two main characters are very young when they first meet and there is a bit of an age gap - Ox is 16 and Joe is 10 when they meet. Obviously nothing romantic or sexual happens between them until they are older, but if you're sensitive to that sort of thing, it may be something to think about before starting! 💕📚💕 2w
GingerAntics @Branwen that‘s quite an age difference at those ages, but once they‘re adults, that age gap isn‘t much at all. I could see that actually being a really cute story. 1w
Branwen @GingerAntics It really is the sweetest story! 😍💕📚 I think you'd really like it! 1w

Been fighting off a cold/sinus infection for the past few days.

However, the highlight of my week has certainly been this delight of a book. Just hit page 200 and I'm so in love! Stephen King, tea, and popcorn is forever one of my favorite combinations! 🍿☕📖
