T5W #10: future classics

A topic that I’m not manipulating to my own inadequacies, what a revelation! This week’s topic really was on that got me thinking. The books that I think would be considered future classics, in my mind, are those that had an effect on me. These are the books that shaped the way I think or were incredibly thought-provoking, or just made such an impact on me that I’ve never been able to forget them.

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is in collaboration with the BookTubeSFF Awards. And, as always, Top 5 Wednesday is a Goodreads group now run by Samantha at Thoughts On Tomes. Where you are given a topic to post about every Wednesday; simple. You can find the link to the Goodreads group here.

Let’s dive into this weeks T5W.

O N E – Harry Potter by J.K Rowling

In my mind, this is already a classic, however, it’s not really all that old. Therefore, it will almost definitely be a classic in the future. It already is to me.

T W O – Life of Pi by Yann Martel 

This book explores so many different themes – its most thought-provoking being that of religion. I believe this book should be read by many for that reason alone. It’s an insightful, incredible book.

T H R E E – Wonder by R. J. Palacio 

I truly adored this book and the message it conveys – especially as it’s target audience is the 9 – 12 / middle-grade age. This is the perfect age for this book that teaches about kindness and acceptance. I really, really hope that children and adults are reading this in the future.

F O U R – The Help by Kathryn Stockett

 As much as, in my opinion, I believe the book will be less remembered a little less in comparison to its film counterpart. I really hope the book is remembered as fondly because it truly is a bloody wonderful book.

F I V E – The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton

Admittedly, this was originally published in the 1960’s. Although this book could already be classed as a classic, I’m putting this on my list as it’s one of my all-time favourites.
Stay gold, Ponyboy.

What are books you think will be future classics? OR books that you want to be considered classics in the future?

    Yes, I was just thinking the same thing about hp! It already feels like a classic to everyone, but time has to go by for to technically become one. I don’t know, what I just said I kind of disagree with because as you said, it is a classic to me. And I think everyone else agrees because even though it isn’t classified as one yet, it really is already because of the impact it’s made.
