Top Ten Tuesday - 34

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish for bloggers who like making lists about books.

Top Ten Books Written in the Past 10 Years that I Hope Are Still Being Read in 30 Years

1. Harry Potter by J.K Rowling
I think this is a pretty obvious choice and I really do think people will be reading these forever.

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Same with this trilogy.

3. The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare
Now that there will be a movie I think these books will become even more popular (if that's possible).

4. Looking For Alaska by John Green
I think this is such a literary book! I could definitely see schools using this as summer reading.

5. Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma
Another book that could be categorized as "literature." It explore a very interesting and taboo topic, perfect for discussion.

6. A Song of Ice and Fire Series by George R.R. Martin
Now that I'm on the fifth book and watching the tv show, I'm getting more invested in this series. Martin has really created an extremely detailed and intricate fantasy world.

7. The Gemma Doyle Trilogy by Libba Bray
I think these books are amazing and I don't think they get as much love as they should. Read these, people!

8. Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales
Only because I think future people will need a good laugh.

9. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
A great example of how to successfully merge contemporary and historical fiction.

10. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
I loved this book when I read it and I couldn't put it down!

Great list! I forgot about the Gemma Doyle trilogy, but it definitely deserves its spot!
