Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and The Bookish.
This is a little bit of a quickie post, I've just got back from lunch and before that, this pointless assembly thing at college. Thankfully it only lasted over an hour instead of two.
So I have a lot of work I want to get done. However, I couldn't ignore this topic for this week's Top Ten Tuesday. It's a real thinker and I am concerned at times that bloggers nowadays in the book blogging community only care about the future or present releases. I once saw a blogger moan about how many review boos they had and that they had no time to finish a series because they needed to stay recent. Maybe that's the key to a successful book blogger - I don't know.
Anyway, here are my top five books I hope will still be around when my niece (I WILL HAVE A NIECE SO I CAN BE THE COOL AUNT)/children are my age.
1. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne - This book introduced me in a way to the world of Nazi Germany, a period of time I know a lot about now. I really hope these kind of books are still around in 2030. It's a classic. (review)
2. Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier - Merely because recently this has impacted my life a lot. Also, it makes my name a tad more interesting in my own opinion. Although I wasn't named after this book, it's nice to think it may have helped make my name popular of the 90's. And also, this is a great book. (review)
3. The Luxe series by Anna Godbersen - This series renewed my love for historical fiction, romance, the YA genre and reading more in general in like Year 8 before I started the blog. Just a great series that I think everyone I know who has read them enjoyed. (review for #4)
4. The Roman Mysteries by Caroline Lawrence - One reason for this. These books were my childhood books. I've read all them as I've grown up and loved them. And made a love for mythology and boy, did some of the facts I learnt from this series of books help me in last year's Classics exam. Also Lawrence is lovely too! (review for #17)
5. Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld - I feel this series helped shape modern dystopian writing as after reading this series, I keep noting similarities in more recent dystopian. And also this series is amazing, so well thought of, it would be a shame to be forgotten. (review for #1)
