This week’s topic is future classics. These are the 5 books that I think will be classics in the future.
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I think this one is a bit of a no brainer for this prompt. So many people have read it. I feel like the story is timeless in the sense that it’s a dystopian that has elements that are potentially plausible in the real world.
2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
There will definitely be a time where some of the amazing WW2 books become classics. I believe that this is one of those. The story is unique, even among WW2 stories. It’s told from the point of view of Death and the German perspective is intriguing to me.
3. The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
While I haven’t actually finished this book as I write this, I do think that this is such a powerful book. It deals with the modern issues of racism and police brutality. The powerful impact of this story has the potential to one day be a classic.
4. The Giver by Lois Lowry
This one might be pretty close to being a classic but I don’t think it’s quite there yet. It’s utopian/dystopian story is kind of unique to me because of the nature of it.
5. The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1) by Rick Riordan
I could definitely see this book/book series becoming a classic for middle-grade readers (although Percy Jackson is for everyone lol). The mythological world intermingling with the modern world is so fascinating. It’s a book series I always recommend to people.
Those are the 5 books that I think will become classics in the future. What books do you think will become classics someday? Let me know what you think in the comments!
