Top Ten Books Written In The Past 10 Years That I Hope People Are Still Reading In 30 Years

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's topic is the Top Ten Books Written In the Past 10 Years That I Hope People Are Still Reading In 30 Years. Woo, this should be fun!

DIVERGENT: Do you know how freaking good this book is? Believe me, if people aren't reading DIVERGENT in 30 years, I will quit my job and start a Veronica Roth campaign of sorts.

THE HUNGER GAMES: With the other two movies coming out within the next few years, I will be shocked (SHOCKED!) if people forget about the book that started all the dystopia hype.

THE NIGHT CIRCUS: I know this isn't a YA book, but it's truly spectacular. I'm still surprised when people tell me they haven't read it yet. I mean, I bought this book for my sister-in-law and grandmother! My boyfriend's step mother even bought it after she heard us talking about it last Christmas! Eep!

THE SCORPIO RACES: Goodness, I love this book. It has something for everyone!

AMY & ROGER'S EPIC DETOUR: This is the perfect summer read. I mean, road trips, pictures and playlists that all surround a beautiful story about loss, life, regret, and hope. Again, this is the perfect summer read.

LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR: This is one of the best contemporary books I've read in ages. With that said, I will make sure that my children and my children's children read this book.

PERFECT CHEMISTRY: This book is the one that got me started on contemporary YA. Now it's one of my favorite genres and needless to say, this is one of my all-time favorite books.

GOING TOO FAR: I still recommend this book to people and will continue to do so until my old and grey.

THE DAUGHTER OF SMOKE AND BONE: Do you know how much I talk about this book? Loads, and I hope (really hope) in 30 years, I can say "Oh, I've read the books ages ago and watched the movies!". There better be movies in the next 30 years!

I HUNT KILLERS: I never wrote a review for this book because my review couldn't come close to doing it justice. Don't you hate that? If you love the show Dexter...heck, if you love a fast-paced and fabulous book, I highly recommend this book. I wouldn't want people reading it in the next 30 years if I didn't think so!

And that's all, folks! Do you agree or disagree with any of my picks? What books do you hope people will still be reading 30 years from now?


  1. After our conversation the other night I am planning to read Daughter of Smoke & Bone very, very soon!!

  2. I completely agree with your choices of Divergent and The Hunger Games and Lola and Amy & Roger and The Scorpio Races. (Hmm, that's quite a mouthful lol!)

    I actually haven't read The Night Circus yet! *eep* Must get to doing that.

  3. I haven't read the Night Circus yet, I agree with a couple of your choices though :D
    Great blog!
