Books that include any type of racism, albeism, sexism, etc– actually, no. They should not be banned because teachers could use those books to teach students WHY that book is wrong.

One thought on “Get To Know Me Bookish Tag”

  1. I totally hear you about sequels! The number of series out there that actually remain strong in both story and character are so few and far between. I’ve read so many #2 of 6 (or 8, 16, what have you) and never went beyond that.

    I may be stealing this..! XD
