Top 5 Wednesday: Future Classics

And it’s Wednesday already! Almost April too 🙂

The Top 5 Wednesday is created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Sam @Thoughts On Tomes. You can find the Goodreads group here.

–Let us know the books you think will be considered classics one day!

I do not know a lot of books that would be considered classics, but I do have a few that I’d like to see as classics one day:

1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Ever since The Hunger Games have been published, a lot of hype as been around it. And while this is “just a regular Young Adult book”, this series has a message from within. My mom once said that she could see something like this series happening in a few years. It could easily be our future, and that’s the creepy thing about it. It’s so realistic and accurate even to this day…

I couldn’t find the image I was looking for, but you get the idea

 

2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett

This book is great at representing how the “black” people used to live, and one white woman who thought she’d make a tiny difference actually changed everyone’s lives. I love this book so much and I hope it’ll be considered a classic one day.

 

3. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseni

This book is about a friendship between Amir, the son of a wealthy Afghan businessman, and Hassan, the son of his father’s servant. This book had many feels, and I can see this becoming a classic (if it isn’t already, since I had to read it for my literature class).

Sadly, I absolutely can’t think of any more books, so that’ll be it for today. I read that people thing A Song Of Ice And Fire by George R. R. Martin will become a classic, which would be awesome. I understand it however, since it displays the differences between the rich and the poor really well. However, I do not exactly see this becoming a classic. Of course a lot of people are going to choose Harry Potter for this T5W, but since I haven’t read the books (yes, shame on me), I didn’t mention it. With the popularity around Harry Potter that’s still going on for years and years, this might actually become a classic.

Have you read any classics? What books do you think will become or want to become future classics?

Book Traveling Thursdays: Because we don’t love every character… (#73)

I’m almost a whole day too late, but that shouldn’t stop anyone! 🙂

Book Traveling Thursdays is created by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. This weekly meme consists in picking a book related to the weekly theme that is announced in the group Goodreads page (if you want to join click here) at the beginning of each month. After that you can write a blog post where you explain why you choose that book and choose different covers from different countries. To make it a little bit easy you are going to choose different editions of the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite cover, and your least favorite cover.

Because we don’t love every character… Choose a book that features a character you hate

I could’ve chosen so many books for this, but I’m going with A Game Of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. Why? Because of all the characters that I hate, I may hate Joffrey Baratheon the most. What a lil piece of shit that is…

Original cover:

9780553103540-us-300

Cover from my country (The Netherlands):

Is it just me, or are translations always ugly…?

Favorite cover:

Least favorite cover:

13496

This one is just ugly, you gotta admit it…

What book did you choose? Do you hate Joffrey as much as I do? And, do you watch the series? Because I gotta admit it, Joffrey is the worst but the actor is amazing!
