I assume there are multiple sources for these lists. Which is this one from, or is it your own compilation?
Interesting article, and thanks for providing the link. Plus ça change ...
And they got it from the American Library Association. The list is from 2016 (since, obviously, 2017 isn't over yet).
Ho-hum. The reason anyone reads Chuck Palahniuk is became he is "disgusting and all-around offensive". Big whoopee... :)
I wonder how much has to do with the gay romance and not the romance simpliciter, it's treated straightforwardly but without any condemnation. I suspect "age-appropriate" is a euphemism for the Catholic Church's discomfort with gay people, despite the efforts by the Church to "love the sinner" (I hear them regularly as part of my child's Confirmation classes).
