My thoughts, opinions, and whatnots.

As a result of seeing the Twilight Saga being on a most challenged list, it led me to the ALA list for 2000-2009. As expected, the Harry Potter series was way higher on the list than Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials. Although, I think that His Dark Materials should have been higher on the list for reasons that I mentioned in this post. Anyway, the book that surprised me the most was Bridge To Terabithia by Katherine Patterson. Now, keep in mind that it’s been a while since I have read the book but I saw the 2007 movie adaptation. Anyway, based on what I remember of the movie, I can’t really see the justification for the book being challenged. Now, on the list, the reason that was given as to why it was challenged was that a death was crucial to the storyline. Personally, I think that’s a load of B.S. I say that because there are other stories out there that are worse in terms of deaths being a crucial plot element.
