It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

ALA's Top ten most frequently challenge books....


2011's Top Ten Most
Frequently Challenged Books


Last year, Lee Wind at I'm Here. I'm Queer. What the Hell do I read? has asked us to join him in reading the American Library Association's Top Ten Most Frequently Challenged Books for 2010. (see my post here.)

I had already read two books from the list and I'm happy to say that I finally read something else. Hunger Games.

Now, it's time to read something off 2011's list.....

3. The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins

#3: I own all three books and have recently read Hunger Games

#5: Purchased because it was on 2010's list, on my TBR list

#7 & #10: Own both, both on my TBR list for this year.

Have you read any of these? Planning on it?


Finally! I've read another and can consider this one complete. Doesn't mean I won't read another one, just that the pressure is off.

Read: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie
