5 Books that Should Become Classics

Books we consider classics today were once pop culture, books that the average person read. Some people used to look down on them for reading something so ‘modern.’ Today’s pop culture is full of amazing literature that could stand the test of ages. Here is my prediction and opinion of what could become classics.

  1. Harry Potter

I must reiterate that I do not like J.K. Rowling. She is very, very controversial. However, Harry Potter was a huge part of my childhood and I will always love it, as will many others. It is so beloved that people are passing it down to their children. The fact that there are countless books, movies, plays, parodies, etc. dedicated to it shows just how widespread the popularity of the Harry Potter universe is. I believe it will become a classic, maybe even one that kids will have to read in school.

2. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I loved this novel and it has won a few awards. The narrative comes from the point of view of Death which already unique and compelling. Above that, the novel tells about the historical atrocities during world war two and what may have happened to displaced children during the time.

3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

This is another series that really dominated pop culture. It also began the interest in the Young Adult Dystopian genre, bringing forth a wave of similar dystopian trilogies.

4. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

This book really got me into contemporary YA fiction. It proves that heartbreaking love can really be felt amongst a teenage audience. Plus, John Green wrote this novel because he was inspired by a teen fan who passed away from cancer, and I think that touching story can make an impact for generations.

5. The Goldfinch by Donna Tart

Donna Tart is becoming increasingly popular these days. The Goldfinch was a complex literary fiction novel that deals with guilt, depression, ageing, sickness, complex relationships, and more. It took my breath away when I read it, but I’m not even sure how to describe it or the plot. I mean, that’s kind of how classics are, no?

What do you think will become a classic?
