Top 5 Wednesday: Future Classics

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such.

This weeks topic is: Future Classics

1. Frat Girl by Kiley Roache

This is such a wonderful comment on our present society and the pre-existing gender stereotypes instilled into everyone. Whether we know it or not. For that reason I believe it's a book that will stand the test of time. It looks at feminism with a refreshingly objective view. It get criticised and championed which arguably it should be. Like everything in life it has pros and cons but that tends to stem from how its used. Feminism should not be a proverbial bat with which to beat men but rather a platform to place all genders on at an equal level which is what Frat Girl does with it. Whilst being hilarious and adorable. I adore this book. And it's characters. OMG THE PERIOD POP QUIZ.

Eliza and Her Monsters by Francesca Zappia

This is a love letter to fandom and a call to those who love to create in whatever capacity they wish be it art, writing, photography. It perfectly captures what it means to be a creative soul and the difficulties that come along with it. Especially, when it becomes a job. I feel like this situation has existed for creative types since time began and will continue to exist long after this generation has moved on. Though it may be a little more digital in the future.

4. The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

I feel as though any book that somehow uses mythology and folklore becomes an instant classic. Providing that the story is good though, which The Bear and the Nightingale definitely is. Utilising Russian mythology this book tells the story of Vasilisa, a girl thought to be a witch by her family and neighbours. Little do they know how integral she is to their small town. This story has such a fantastic moral to it too which I adored.

5. The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas

Well duh.

The Hate U Give, like Children of Blood and Bone, is a novel for those that want to see themselves, their family and their struggles represented in popular culture. It's also a novel for those that need educating and honestly shocking into seeing the plight of a people. Myself being the latter and I know for a fact I am not the only person that was deeply deeply moved by this book. For that reason it is definitely a classic.

2. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab

I've professed my love for this fantasy series so much. It's amazing. I guarantee that in years to come this series will attain a status similar to that of The Name of the Wind and Brandon Sanderson's many many series. I can't wait for the follow up trilogy too.

I have a review for A Gathering of Shadows here.

I have a review for A Conjuring of Light here.

What do you think will be Future Classics 

Thank-you for reading,
