Top Five Wednesdays started on Goodreads back in 2013. At the beginning of every month Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes posts a topic for each Wednesday and bloggers, vloggers and overall book fans are encouraged to respond with their top five.
This week is five favorite future classics—books you think are one day going to be considered classics. Let me know what your top five are in the comments!
1. Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
Percy Jackson is going to be a classic children’s series—it basically already is—no question. Rick Riordan is just magic. I really want to read his other series too. I’ve only heard good things.
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Colllins
I think this book and series just had such a cultural impact that there is no way it won’t be considered a classic in the future. I mean think of how many people read the books; dressed up as Katniss; saw the movies. The Hunger Games is just part of our culture now. I mean I can shout “I volunteer as tribute” and people will know what I’m talking about.
3. milk and honey by Rupi Kaur
This poetry collection is so fantastic and has gained like the most notice and traction of a poetry collection I have ever seen or at least heard of. I haven’t met a person that has read milk and honey and hasn’t liked it.
5. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I love this book so much. I think this is very easily going to become a coming of age classic—like a Catcher in the Rye if you will. It just reaches and touches so many people and really makes you feel and there aren’t enough good things I can say about it.
5. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin
I think this series is going to very easily become a classic fantasy series. It possibly already is. The show made this even more possible though. I hate to say that because a book should be a classic in its own right, but the show really just catapulted the books and series to so much more.
