8 Books That Actually SHOULD Be Banned

Generally, I think we should be reading everything all the time, and it’s ridiculous to me that schools have banned books for reasons like "it uses swear words" or "it’s too sexy" or "it has boys who kiss other boys on the mouth." Like who's actually banning these books, and what is their glitch?

But that’s not to say there are books out there that don’t deserve to be soundly set on fire so that our eyeballs are never forced to skim their sordid pages. I do think there are books that should be banned for completely acceptable and legitimate reasons such as "I dislike them personally," and these, for those curious, are the books in question.
