Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey on Youtube) as a way for book reviewers and lovers to share their love of lists every Wednesday. Check out the Goodreads group.
- The Book Thief
- The Hate U Give
- Station Eleven
- All the Light We Cannot See
- The Fault in Our Stars
This week’s Top 5 is all about current books that I think will one day be considered classics. It’s pretty hard to predict the future but some stories just stand out for the ages. The Book Thief is iconic for it’s narrator and it’s historical tale. While I have yet to read The Hate U Give, it’s already become a landmark book for this generation. Station Eleven is a perfect mix of genres; both literary fiction and dystopia. All the Light We Cannot See is one of the most talked about historical fictions and The Fault in Our Stars is an emotional yet honest look at illness.
So what five books do YOU think will be future classics? Do you agree with any of my picks? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
