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?
