top ten 21st century classics
posted by soe 1:01 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic from That Artsy Reader Girl asks us to share the Top Ten 21st Century Books I Think Will Become Classics.

I’m not sure my reading preferences will line up with canon, but what can you do:

  1. The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak
  2. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
  3. The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
  4. The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas
  5. Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin
  6. Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds
  7. The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
  8. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
  9. March by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin, and Nate Powell
  10. A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles

Interestingly this list features a lot more books by men than my usual lists. I wonder what that says about my internalization about the inherent value and timelessness of male subjects and voices. Probably not good things.

What books do you consider modern classics?
