Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week was Banned Books Week, so we wanted to know which of the top ten most challenged and banned books you’d read. Unsurprisingly, mega-bestseller The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins came out on top — 94% of you have read it — with Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird coming in not too far behind with 84% of the vote. I like that our top two included something recent and something classic. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
This week, we want to revisit a previous poll where we asked which city you’d want to visit and which YA character would be your tour guide. All of the places we suggested exist in the real world, but there are plenty of very real-feeling cities and worlds that only exist in the world of a book, so we’re asking the question again, but this time with places and people from YA sci-fi and fantasy. Vote in the poll below, or leave us a comment if there’s another fantasy/SF city-character pair you think is even better (there’s a lot of ground we didn’t cover!)!
What place do you want to visit, and who would be your tour guide?
- Narnia with Mr. Tumnus (Chronicles of Narnia) (46%, 54 Votes)
- Thisby with Sean (The Scorpio Races) (13%, 15 Votes)
