It was revealed this week that Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell had been banned from a library's shelves in the US and the author's invitation to speak at an event receded after parents took issue with the language used in the book.

  1. I'm so excited that Geek Girl is being published in the US! I obviously live in the UK so I'm not really sure why but I'm really pleased for Holly.

    I can't believe that Eleanor & Park was banned. It's one of my favourite books! I really don't agree with banning books...

    Thanks for sharing, Sarah! :D

    1. Me too! British things seem to be so popular over there (music and TV wise anyway!) so I hope it really catches on :D I've got Eleanor and Park on hold from the library and I'm really excited to read it. It does make me sad that people take things so out of proportion. It still baffles me when I read articles about Harry Potter being banned! Thanks for the lovely comment :D

  2. What a way to start off Banned Book Week. I have been meaning to get a copy of Eleanor and Park now i just have even more reason

    Books Buying Beauty

    1. Absolutely! I've only read positive reviews of it so hopefully it'll lead to more people discovering the book. I've got it on hold at the library and can't wait to read it. Thanks for the comment! :D
