21st Century Books I Think Will Become Classics
This week’s prompt is hard. Classics can be so subjective. There are a lot of classics that everyone agrees on and then there are some that scholars still debate whether they deserve the classification of “classic.” When I think of classics, I think of books that are timeless, books that multiple generations have read and/or enjoyed. I don’t think of books that have more literary merit/value than other books. Reading and the enjoyment of reading all depends upon the reader.
Here are my top ten predictions of which books will become classics from the last 21 years:
I know some of my choices may be weird. There are probably other books that would be better than mine. I only listed books I’ve read, though. The other books that may be better choices would be word of mouth only. For that reason, I didn’t put them on my list.
What about you? Which books published in the last 21 years do you think will become classics? Do we have any in common?
