Top Ten Tuesday : 21st Century Books I Think Will Become Classics 


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is:

21st Century Books I Think Will Become Classics

I really like this topic.  It makes you sit and think.  I had a much longer longlist (hence the name eh!) and had to narrow this down.  I started off with books that I was thinking are already pretty huge in terms of massive ratings on Goodreads and elsewhere – such as Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander or GRRM’s Game of Thrones.  Then I thought about choosing some of my more recent reads.  Ultimately I’ve gone for a mix of newish and slightly older reads.  In no particular order, here they are:

The Red Queen’s War series by Mark Lawrence

The Bone Ships (The Tide Child) by RJ Barker

The Silent Companions by Laura Purcell


The Last House on Needless Street by Catriona Ward


Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia


The Memoirs of Lady Trent by Marie Brennan

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium series) by Stieg Larsson

American Gods by Neil Gaiman


The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E Harrow


The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
