Happy Friday! (5)

The Book Blog Hop is a weekly meme hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.  It’s a great way to meet new bloggers and check out  some cool blogs.
This week’s question is:  In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?
This is such a hard question because there are so many books I love on the banned book list.  I will definitely have to say that of the last decade, one of my favorite books on the banned book list is A Wrinkle in Time.  I loved that book as a child (and as an adult) and I can’t imagine not having been able to read it.  Other favorites include The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and The Giver.
What banned book(s) are on your list?


Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.
This week's question is:  What book that hasn't been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?
I would LOVE to see The Bronze Horseman turned into a movie as long as it stayed pretty close to the book.  I think I would like Henry Cavill to play Alexander and a no name actress to play Tatiana.  I don't know of a current actress that could play her well.
Any books you would like to see made into a movie?

  2. Oh gosh The Bronze Horseman would make such a fantastic epic romance movie...do you think they could fit the whole story into one film?

  5. The idea of someone wanting to ban A Wrinkle in Time just stuns me. I mean, have they read the book? (okay, probably no) It's a book about the power of love. HOW IS THIS BAD?

    I love that book too much obviously. :)

    I don't know The Bronze Horseman, but I'll support Henry Cavill in anything.

  6. Hopping through. I wonder why A Wrinkle in Time was banned. I haven't read it in 20 years but I don't remember anything controversial.
