Top Ten Books Written in the Past 10 Years That I Hope People Are Still Reading in 30 Years
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith
Every generation has it's master of horror, from Marry Shelly in the 19th century to Stephen King in the 90s and early 2000s, but I think this generation is Grahame-Smith's time!
Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
This is the best superpower novel I've ever read! I hope Juliette ends up as the next Spiderman!
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1)
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
This book changed my whole view of what a YA book can be! Amazing read!
Anna Dressed in Blood (Anna, #1)
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
The best ghost story I've ever read without a doubt!
Wither (The Chemical Garden, #1)
Wither by Lauren Destefano
Wither was the book that I called my "official" start to reading primarily YA. Just so amazing!
Divergent (Divergent, #1)
Divergent is so extraordinary! Awesome characters, an amazing plot, and great world building! If people aren't reading this in 50 years I'll be PISSED!
The Accidental Hero (Jack Blank Adventure, #1)
The Accidental Hero by Matt Myklusch
Favorite middle grade book evah!
Wings (Wings, #1)
Wings by Aprilynne Pike
Though the first book was not as good as the others, this series is magnificent! 
The Iron King (The Iron Fey, #1)
The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
Truly the Alice in Wonderland of its time!
The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This is my favorite book ever. Period. If it's not being read in 30 years, then I'll make sure I'm not either!


  1. Hmmmm. Nice choices ..I don't think I could pick 10 books but if I could I would pick er, see? I'm not good at this but great list! :)

  2. Ive read the Hunger Games, Wither, and Wings! The others I have been wanting to read!

  3. Great ones! The Hunger Games is my #1 on this list too. :)

  4. Of your list, I think the only one that has that kind of "staying power" is Hunger Games. But we shall see. :)

  5. Gah! Can't believe I forgot TUoMD! Grr.. Lol. Great list! :D

    Drop by my Top 10?

  6. Oh poo! I've only read 'the hunger games' out of your list! I really must catch up on all of these great books! So many books and so little time!

  7. As far as Divergent goes, I will be pissed right along with you. Amazing book. I absolutely LOVED Shatter Me, too! Mara Dyer--I agree. Hunger Games--DUH. And Anna, you are so right. Kendare did a ghost story the right way.

    Have a great day, Benji!

  8. Loved The Hunger Games too - it's my favorite from the ones I've read from your list. I didn't like the cover for Shatter Me, but it's gotten such good reviews so I better stop judging the book by it's cover and pick it up. Awesome list.

  9. I would definitely have picked some of the books up there, such as Shatter Me (a fave), Anna, Divergent, Unbecoming, The Hunger Games. I haven't read a couple of them (Abe Lincoln, which I am desperate to read, The Accidental Hero and Wither) so I can't agree with those. One that I would add without a shadow of a doubt is Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. Loved the list! Thanks

  10. Time flies and it'd be 30 years in a jiffy. I'll be middle aged by then and I really hope I'll continue to enjoy those books, particularly Hunger Games and Shatter Me.

    On a random note, I'm still holding out for Girl of Nightmares before reading Anna Dressed in Blood . xD

  11. Sad but true, I've only read Hunger Games from the entire list. Would love to try Shatter Me and Divergent.

  12. Oooo I agree with Shatter Me for sure. That's an amazing book. Great list!

  13. Amazing list! I think I could just go down your list and say, "Yes, yes, yes, yes!" So many great books to choose from. I really hope they are reading them in 30 years!

  14. I've got Divergent coming in the mail -- I am SO eager to dive into this book and see what all the hubbub is about this book. All my friends are giving it glowing reviews!! :-D

  15. I've only read The Hunger Games haha... I must catch up fast.

  16. Iron King and Mara Dyer are by my bed now just waiting on me to pick them up!

  17. I have been wanting to read Iron King, Shatter Me and Wither for so long. Cant wait to get my hands on them. Thanks!

  18. Divergent and Hunger Games would me on my list too. Excellent choices.
