    Hey, congrats on your leaderboard recognition Judey. 😊🎉🎉 I hope you had a good bday too! Best wishes!

    Book banning is a crime to me. We should be able to read whatever we want. There are some books out there not worth reading, but we must have the choice. There are some parents or other adults who think way too much and read too much into certain novels.

  • Rob Angeli3 months ago

    Really cool idea Judey, and congratulations!

  • slimizzy3 months ago

    Don't ban our books!

  • Dyllon Rodillon3 months ago

    I know I was one of us who talked about Animal Farm!

  • Leslie Writes3 months ago

    Excellent point! I hope people have more sense then to allow these book bans. We’re on thin ice!

  • Dana Stewart3 months ago

    Fun and clever, Judey!

  • Mackenzie Davis3 months ago

    Can’t believe I didn’t comment here! Great list and so clever of you to use the slashes! Haha, I see I made the list (Pride & Prejudice)! And yeahhhh…hate the book banning reality we live in. At least self publishing still exists, and still personal choice to buy those books. 💜

  • Thavien Yliaster3 months ago

    Pretty clever with using the slash marks to remove the spaces to include as many words as possible for this critique. Nice on on You for doing that, and even nicer still for reading all of those critiques. Still, I haven't really seen anybody do a critique on the "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series, just the TV show (which went downhill faster than a seesaw on a highly gravitational planet).

  • Awesome ✨ Congratulations on your Top Story💯🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉

  • Alexander McEvoy3 months ago

    I am confused by this list, but I think that in the book banning dystopian future some places are approaching people won’t be allowed to critique art because it is strictly controlled by the art police and any critique is seen as an attack on the state.
