Because I am sure that everyone is dying to see what is on our shelves. With the added perk of incredible anticipation for some risque reviews.
However, this week we have something special.
This week there has been a huge outcry over a article claiming three beloved books to be filth.
Jen and I were disturbed over this abomination!
Yes, Deeply Disturbed!
We have put together a most wonderful post for our followers.
We also got together and decided that we were going to read one of the three
books that Scroggins called Filth!
We decided to read Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.
Personally, for me I really wanted to read Speak. I just had to find out what would make this guy consider a rape scene to be soft porn. I also want to mention... that I feel that if you think rape is porn then Fairy thinks there is something wrong with you in more ways then one. But please get your head checked first.
I don't like ANYONE telling me what I can and can't read. For that matter, someone dictating the same for my children. I am perfectly capable of making those decisions and I don't need anyone bringing up a lack of morals or spirituality as their defense to such. So, I bought Speak for me, because any book helping young people with rape should never be pushed aside!
Wickedly Great & Finished:
Have you read Speak?
Take a moment to tell us what you felt after you first read this book.
- Would you consider the rape scene to be pornographic?
- What was your favorite part of Speak?
- How did the book make you feel afterward?
After a few days we will post our responses
Post a duo review for
