First of all let me explain a bit about this tag in case you don’t know about it. It’s a tag created by Samantha from Toughts on Tomes and Lainey from Ginger Reads Lainey and is a weekly book meme were a topic or theme is chosen and each week you have to choose five books/series/tvshows that fit the description. If you want to check it out here’s the Goodreads group.
#T5W: Future Classics
“Let us know the books you think will be considered classics one day! “
What a juicy one, this weeks prompt!! I will confess I’ve not read all of the mentioned below but still I have a sixth sense for this stuff and I know I won’t be too far gone. The only one I am not certain that simply made the list because I want it too is THG! 😜
But well here are my choices:
1. The Book Thief: For some reason or other I think this already has been elevated to a classic and it only needs a bit of a push up to be more known around the world, don’t you think? Is such a sweet and sad story developed in original way that even a toddler could get some facts from it.
2. Harry Potter: Another assumption, if it’s not already been classified as one. As I still haven’t read these I won’t comment any longer, but this series has already made history and can impact in so many different types of people from all ages that… no word necessary! Am I right??
3. The Hunger Games: Boom! How could this series not make the list?? Well it might not be a 1984, it might be less of a classic read but still I think it’s one everyone should get to read because it gives us a new view on the current future and tyranny.
4. The Handmaid’s Tale: Another too realistic dystopian read, from what I’ve heard, that I still haven’t read. I haven’t read any of Atwood’s previous work but I’ve heard such great things about this one and I sense the impact it could have on younger readers that I think is another must!
5. The Help: Have I mentioned how much I loved the movie version of this one? I’ve been planning on reading it ever since it got released and still haven’t gotten to it either… This story I think is another must to open young (and not only young) readers eyes and minds.
