It has been a hot minute since I did a Top 5 Wednesday, which you can find more about T5W here. This month is a throwback month where we can choose our own topics, which I think is really fun! This week I’m doing future classics.
Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I think Perks is already considered almost a classic, and I think it will continue to be considered as such for the foreseeable future. Which it definitely deserves. It’s an amazing exploration of life and love, and it’s one of my all-time favourites.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Another modern classic. Honestly, I wasn’t the biggest fan of this the first time I read it. But, I still consider it one of those books that everyone should read. Not everyone loves classics, so I think it still counts.
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls
Have I talked about this book enough yet? Well, I still love it. I think this is another book that everyone should read, and I think it should be read in schools.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
This is the newest book on this list, but I think it will definitely be considered a classic in times to come. Maybe not a classic, but definitely a book that will be taught in schools and used to highlight the BLM movement.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
I don’t really know if this will become a classic because classics are usually literary fiction whereas this is magical realism. But I think it really has the potential to do so. The writing is good enough and it’s magical and captivating.
So those are my future classics! Do you agree? Any others you’d suggest?
