Top Ten Tuesday: Best Books in the Last 10 Years

May 29, 2012 Meme, Top Ten Tuesday 14

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and Bookish.

Top Ten Books from the last ten years that I hope they are still reading in 30 years.

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Oppressive government + uprising citizen = a formula people will love forever.
2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
This is the new To Kill a Mockingbird.  It can’t ever replace To Kill a Mockingbird, but it’s sentiments make for a book easily readable well into the future.
3. The Book Thief
Beautiful and heartbreaking.  A must read for everyone, anytime.
4. Harry Potter 5-7 (really, all of Harry Potter but only 5-7 made the 10 year cut off) by JK Rowling.
If people do not continue to read Harry Potter I will be one very sad, unhappy girl.
5. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
This book was so beautiful.  I hope people never stop reading it!
This was a lot harder than I thought, I can only think of 5!  I know that there are so many books that I love, but I just can’t think of any more that will survive the test of time, generations and that will appeal to the masses.

    Yes to TFIOS and Harry Potter and Hunger Games. I checked The Book Thief out of the library a few weeks ago and now I need to find the time to read it.

    Kimberly, great list. This going to be another hangs her head in shame post because I have most of those books sitting on my TBR pile that I haven’t read yet. I will have to perhaps set up some kind of reading challenge this year to get motivated. See you soon

    Once again I didn’t make a list this week but I agree with you on some of these…the ones I’ve read. ;) The Book Thief should be read forever!

  4. Peppermint Ph.D.

    The Hunger Games and The Book Thief are on my list as well…I agree wholeheartedly about The Book Thief…it should be on anyone/everyone’s list :)

  5. Andrea @ The Overstuffed Bookcase

    I agree with most of these (and only most of them because I haven’t read all of them!). And I don’t think we have to worry about Harry Potter – all of us Potterheads will be reading them to our children so the books will definitely live on! ;)

  6. Erin

    I have all of those on my list as well, with the exception of The Book Thief (only because I haven’t read it yet… it’s been sitting on my bookshelf forever! I so need to get to it).

    Great list!!!

  7. 1girl2manybooks

    I’ve never read any Harry Potter so I can’t comment on that one but the rest of your choices are awesome. Totally agree.

  8. Kelsey@TheLostBookReports

    1,4 and 5 were on my list as well!!!

    You are so right on Harry Potter. Those books will last the ages, I know it! I had trouble narrowing my list down to 10 – it was definitely tough. I almost chose a lot of these. Great list!

    I really need to reread TFIOS! I don’t think anyone is going to stop reading Harry Potter for centuries to come!
