Top Ten Books Written in the Past 10 Years that I Hope People Are Still Reading in 30 Years.
- Impulse by Ellen Hopkins: Really, I could have put any of her books here. I choose Impulse because it's my favourite. They're so real and beautifully written.
- Wintergirls by Louise Halse Anderson: Again, reality in beautiful writing.
- The Know-It-All by A.J. Jacobs: I'm sorry but the guy read the ENTIRE Encyclopedia Britannica and wrote a book about it. He belongs on every list ever.
- Outliers by Malcom Gladwell: We had to read this the summer before my first year of University. I read it again when I was about to drop out, and chose to stay.
- Sherrilynn Kenyon?: My mom told me to add this. I didn't question it. She's written over 20 books for just one of her series (not including shorts) and still kicking. I guess that's impressive.
- The Black Dagger Brotherhood Novels by J.R. Ward: I love them so they go on the list.
- Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments Novels: She just makes such a great world to escape to. I'd hate for future generations to miss out on that.
- The Fault In Our Stars by John Green: Okay, I'm cheating on this one. I haven't read it. Don't judge, it's on my TBR. I feel safe saying that need it needs to be on TBRs 30 years from now, too.
- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: Again, the future needs a badass, Russian god and I nominate Dimitri for that role.
- Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling: Okay, time for another confession. I've only read to the 4th book. And only seen parts of a couple of the movies. I'm just not into it! But a phenomenon like Harry Potter likely belongs on here.
Okay, that was easier than expected. Leave me a comment so I can check out your Top Ten Tuesday!
Much love, Samantha
