Happy Banned Books Week!

Yep, it's that time of year again: Banned Books Week.  Longtime followers of my blog will know that I love Banned Books Week.  I always take advantage of the opportunity to read something that has been so challenged or banned the previous year that it made it onto the top 10 list.

Last year, I read Sex Criminals, Vol. I.  It was a graphic novel, which meant way outside of my comfort zone.  But I actually rather enjoyed it.  I need to finish them, but at the time the second book wasn't available from my library.

This year the list of the top 10 banned books of 2017 is a bunch of old favorites.  There are certain books that crop up fairly regularly, and this year has plenty of them.  Here's the list of the top 10 banned and challenged books of 2017:

Sci-Fi Fantasy reading list for 2018

Looking for something good and geeky to read in 2018?  Barnes & Noble released a list of 25 sci-fi and fantasy debuts in the genre that will be released this year.

Some of these books look really good, although of course it'll be quite a wait for most of them.  I think I'll save this list and check back later in the year!
