The next book on the agenda is a banned book. I chose Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five. I’ve actually never read Vonnegut before not did I read this novel in high school or even during college. This category was difficult for me to narrow down my choices. It seemed like everyday I would change the book I had on my list to something different. But when I saw this sitting on the library shelf I told myself, this is the one.
I’ve heard so much about the author and this book I’m excited to start. I feel like I’ve missed a cultural milestone. So many people I know have read this book and were surprised that I’ve never read it. My hope is that this book will open up the world of Vonnegut for me and give me a new, beloved author to read and discover.
Stay tuned for the review of Slaughterhouse Five. Happy reading!
