It’s day four of the Bout of Books readathon and after my mini-spurt of power-reading, I’m starting to lag again. I’ve taken a road trip to my friend’s house for the remainder of the weekend and I know it’s going to severely impair on my reading time. However, I’ll keep trying to do these challenges! Today’s challenge can be found over at Ranty Runt of a Reader.
According to the post, the challenge is to share one book that you believe will be a classic in 100 years’ time, but it has to be published after 2005.
My first pick would be to go with any of the Harry Potter books published after 2005, but since I’m not sure that really counts, I’m going to have to go with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The first reason I believe this is to happen is because the first book of the trilogy has a shock factor to it–children murdering other children for the pleasure of wealthier persons who are immune to the anguish the action would typically give–that years from now people will be able to continue feeling even as society changes. The second reason is because the corruption of the society these people live in will be able to be viewed upon and related to by many for years to come, and it will be a hard thing to fade away from.
Aaand those are my two reasons. A little weak, I know, but I’m actually in a rush at the moment and this one really took a lot of thought. Anyway, thanks for reading!
