Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is:

Top Ten Books That I Hope People Are Still Reading in Ten Years

First, I need to apologize for not keeping up with TTT this month.  May is a difficult month for me since the school year is coming to a close and this year, I had my own graduate school work finishing up as well.  But summer is so close.......::shouts for joy::  Now, on to the books.........

These are books that kids should be reading and talking about in class.  I hope they are still reading and talking about them 10 years from now.  Not surprisingly, most of them have also found their way on to banned book lists each year!  Go figure……

There is really nothing else that I can say about each of these books/series.  They are all so powerful that words are really insufficient.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling 

Looking for Alaska by John Green

Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson

Playing with Matches by Brian Katcher

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Alexie Sherman

American-Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

Divergent series by Veronica Roth

The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

So this is my list.  Tell me about yours.  Anything you would take off of my list?  Anything fabulous that I've missed?

  1. I have seen Unwind on a few lists. I really need to read that series. Speak and Part-Time Diary are excellent choices! Here is my list http://wp.me/pzUn5-10k
