Weekend Blog Hops: 22 September 2017
In regards to Banned Books Week (www.bannedbooksweek.org/), what are your favourite books that have been banned or challenged?
Wow, so many from which to pick! The ones that come immediately to mind would be: The 120 Days of Sodom by the Marquis de Sade, American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis, and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
I am a cat. As yet, I have no name.
From page 56:
I'm not denying that Kosuke wanted to take me for the sake of their friendship. But I wouldn't let him deny, either, that taking me, with my resemblance to Hachi, would have something to do with ghosts of the past.

The Travelling Cat Chronicles
Nana, a cat, is devoted to Satoru, his owner. So when Satoru decides to go on a roadtrip one day to find him a new home, Nana is perplexed. They visit Satoru's old friends from his school days and early youth. His friends may have untidy emotional lives but they are all animal lovers, and they also wonder why Satoru is trying to give his beloved cat away. Until the day Nana suddenly understands a long-held secret about his much-loved owner, and his heart begins to break. Narrated in turns by Nana and by his owner, this funny, uplifting, heartrending story of a cat is nothing if not profoundly human.
