Yes. The American Library Association publishes a list of most frequently banned and challenged books. ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) gathers information from libraries about banned and challenged books. A list of challenged and banned books by year is available on the Banned Books Week LibGuide.

"The Top Ten Most Frequently Challenged books list is compiled with expert analysis by the Office for Intellectual Freedom staff. “Challenges” are documented requests to remove materials from schools or libraries." - American Library Association, Frequently Challenged Books
