Top 5 Wednesday| Penguin, Listen Up

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that come together to discuss that weeks topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

This week we are compiling a list of books that we think will be future "classics" and stand against the test of time.

1. Harry Potter 
J.K. Rowling

Let's get rid of the obvious out of the way. This book broke records, created an army of fans and still remains as one of the biggest franchises of our time - of course, this is going to be a children's classic.

2. Assassin's Apprentice
Robin Hobb

I haven't heard anyone talk anything negative about Robin Hobb's books. Being the first book in a trilogy and of an overarching series, I think this will be a fantasy classic.

3. The Hate U Give
Angie Thomas

This book is remarkable, with great character dynamics and a message that impacts and hits home - no matter of race. It tells a story that NEEDS to be told, over and over again until someone gets it and things begin to change.

4. The Hunger Games
Susanne Collins

This is in the same vein as the Harry Potter series. I think these books hit a hard note during their reign of YA dystopia. I still have a fond memory of these books and think that many more readers will fall for them and be horrified by them.

5. His Dark Materials
Philip Pullman

I think these are closely considered a modern children's classic, but if not I think that these will be.

  1. Amazing list! I'm pretty sure THG, HP and His Dark Materials are already considered as a classic for many people, but I'd love to see THUG as a required reading in the future!
