Top Ten Books Written In The Past 10 Years That I Hope People Are Still Reading In 30 Years

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is: Top Ten Books Written In The Past 10 Years That I Hope People Are Still Reading In 30 Years
This was such a hard topic so some of my picks are not the best.
1.) The Help by Kathryn Stockett-People either loved or hated this book but I personally loved it.  I thought it was a very powerful story and hope it maintains it's popularity.
2.) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak-An inspiring story that fits well in the genre of Holocaust literature.
3.) Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling-Harry Potter encouraged so many people to get reading and hopefully, they will continue to do so.
4.) Everything is Illuminated by Jonathon Safran Foer-I just love this book and seeing as how the Holocaust is a 'popular' topic, I think this book will still be relevant in the years to come.
5.) The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova-I think this is just an awesome story.  It's been out for a while but it still seems to be popular and well-loved.
6.) Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert-I know some people hated this book but I found it very inspiring and I think it's message is timeless.
7.) Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane-This is just a fantastic psychological thriller that I think will be enjoyed for years to come.
8.)A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah-This book was written a few years ago and there are still violent conflicts occurring in Africa.  Any book that can promote awareness of situations that would normally be ignored, is important and should still be read years from now.
9.) Anything by Laurie Halse Anderson-I feel like any teenager could relate to these books and I hope they will be reading Anderson's work for years to come.

  1. Harry Potter and The Book Thief! I definitely agree with you on those two books. I haven't read the rest of those books, but I'll definitely look into them soon. (:

  2. The Harry Potter series definitely encouraged me to get back into reading as an adult. The Book Thief is a popular choice today- I really need to read it soon.
