Top Ten Books Written In The Past 10 Years That I Hope People Are Still Reading In 30 Years
hosted by Broke and the Bookish
Wow, that is a really long time period…like so many books were published in the past ten years. So, this might not necessarily be my top ten, but they were the first ten that came to mind.
10. The Bermudez Triangle by Maureen Johnson
Maureen Johnson is one of my idols, so I would love to see her books still being read in the future. Of all her books, this one has my favourite message, so that’s why I chose it.
9. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
This is one of those books that I want everyone to read. Everyone. Including those who aren’t born yet.
8. Looking for Alaska by John Green
This is more that I want to see future generations of nerdfighters…
7. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
This is one of those magical books that I think children no matter how many years in the future will enjoy.
6. Terrier by Tamora Pierce
Pierce is one of my favourite authors ever, and I know that she’ll continue to popular 30 years from now. I hope generations of girls will grow up reading her stories.
5. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I don’t feel like I really need to explain this one. Some parts of our history really shouldn’t be forgotten and some messages need to continue to be told.
4. The Disreputable History of Frankie-Landau Banks by E. Lockhart
This is the kind of book I want to see on school book lists 30 years from now. It’s time for a new kind of high school literary canon.
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Who doesn’t want their friend’s book to become a classic?
2. Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Hopefully in thirty years this book will be average fare, and by that I mean kick ass feminist heroines.
1. Harry Potter series (books 4-7)
I’m 100% sure that these books will still be being read in 30 years, but if they’re not I will cry because it means the world has become so much less awesome.
