Is Eragon Clean? (11 new)

5989 It's squeaky clean! (: I haven't read the rest of the series yet, but I know a ton of people who have, and there's nothing objectionable in them.

5989 Oh no, Water For Elephants?! That's the book we have for my school's book club next month! I'm president, so I have to read it. :/

5989 Lock and Key by Sarah Dessen

I adored this book. <3

Buttermilk Hill by Ruth White
More of a kids' book, but it was also clean.

5989 Seriously.
I actually sent an email to the publishing assosciation or whatever asking them about including such ratings on the backs of the books, near the barcode or something. Let them know about a very uncomfortable situation I had to go through because I was forced to read a book for school that was just terrible, and even if I had been able to quit, it would have had to have been AFTER I'd already read something terrible.

They emailed me back and told me such an idea has been suggested before, but they've never chosen to act on it, for some reason. :/ They really should at least have a sexual content warning!

5989 Tuck Everlasting is one those sweet ones that I just adore!

I'm also a teen who's a romance junkie. To be honest, I can't STAND it when a book doesn't have romance of some sort, hahaha.

Sarah Dessen is a basically clean author. I've asked several people, since I know she's a romance-story author of teen love, and I've gotten nothing but satisfying answers. Dreamland is about an abusive relationship, and it has some drug addiction, but it's clean besides. I'm currently reading Lock and Key, which also has drug references, but so far, the main character's love interest is the epitome of chivalry.

Matched by Ally Condie is as clean as they come.

Dreaming Anastasia by Joy Preble had a relationship that made my heart squeeze and my stomach in knots because I just loved them so much!

The ever classic Pride and Prejudice is seriously one of the best romances of all time.

Avalon High by Meg Cabot has a clean romance with elements of Arthurian history (which makes me, personally, fangirl like there's no tomorrow).

Gone by Michael Grant has lots of different relationships, but unfortunately, there's refernce to a couple of the characters have sex in the fourth book of the series. But I'm hoping Grant won't choose to do that more often.

City of Bones by Cassandra Clare is one of my personal favorites, but it's a little iffy to a lot of people. The way that I read this book, it's one of the greatest pieces of writing to ever exist, but I feel like it can make a lot of peole uncomfortable. Nothing will ever happen between characters (Cassandra Clare let all her readers know that sex is not in her books ever), but the two main interests are confused between the very end of book one and 3/4 of the way through book three on whether they're siblings or not. Some people see this book as being "incest", but I'll let you know that they never are related in the least. However, if that's something that would make you uncomfortable, then don't pick it up.

That's my clean list so far!

5989 I heard that Just Listen was one of her worse ones from a fan of hers, so I'm staying away from that one, hahaha. I'll let you guys know once I read more by her!

5989 Also, is 13 Little Blue Envelopes clean?
Aug 04, 2011 04:23PM

5989 I'm reading Among the Brave (Shadow Children, #5) by Margaret Peterson Haddix.

I know they're kids books, but I love them. <3

5989 Matched by Ally Condie was great! Completely clean and I couldn't stop reading.

City of Bones and the rest of the Mortal Instruments series is completely clean as well.

Among the Hidden and the Shadow Children series is clean. It's meant for a much younger crowd, but at sixteen, I still really love these books.

Dreaming Anastasia was clean.

Eragon was clean.

I could go on forever. >>

5989 Does anybody know about Sarah Dessen? I appreciated that Dreamland didn't at all ever go into detail about any sex (just a simple, "we had it", but I easily forgot about it by the end of the story), but I'm curious about This Lullaby.

5989 I, too, but down Tithe by Holly Black. I had so been looking forward to reading it, but the F-words started on the second page and never let up. I just didn't want to deal with it, so after reading three pages, I put it down and took it back to the library.

I also wanted to put down Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult, because of both language and really descriptive sexual content. Unfortunately, my 10th grade English teacher had this as our "required" read and I had to suffer through something that made me feel immoral, icky, and downright disgusting with myself because my teacher thought I needed to be "mature" about it.

5989 I was looking for a list of quotes from some of Margaret Peterson Haddix's books, and I found that some of her books were listed in this group. As a teenager, other people my age don't really seem to care if there's anything immoral in a book, so it's nice to have somewhere that does!
