TTT: My favorite books of the last ten years

This week’s topic was supposed to be “21st Century Books That You Think Will Become Classics…” but I don’t really read the sort of books that are likely to be considered classics. I mean, I guess that SOME of these might be, so I guess this pivot isn’t THAT far off-the path. But I really have no idea what we will consider a classic in the coming decades…but I do know what I really liked.

Some of these have been featured before here in the 52 Newsroom…but that’s because I love them and think they are remarkable! I’m pretty jazzed about the ones that I haven’t mentioned before—and I hope you find something that looks interesting to you.

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

  1. This week’s prompt was really hard. I like your pivot. I’ve heard of a few of these and they’re on my TBR. I’m going to look into the others and consider putting them on my TBR. Thanks for putting them on my radar.

  2. I had the same problem with ‘I don’t really read the sort of books that are likely to be considered classics’, I said pretty much the exact same thing to my betrothed when I saw the prompt… followed by a long discussion about the nature of classics, what it means when we call a book a classic etc so it might have inspired a future blog post about that, rather than a TTT list LOL

    Daisy Jones & The Six is on my TBR, waiting for it to become available at my library seems to be taking forever but I’m excited to read it!

  3. I’m a big Tana French fan. I just wish she would publish more often! It’s tough waiting 2-3 years between books. I’m also glad you mentioned WOOL. I loved that book when I read it, even when out and bought the other books in the series and…there they sit. I’m going to have to re-read WOOL, then binge the rest of the series so I don’t forgot who’s who and what’s what. LOL.

    Happy TTT!

  4. I read most of your books and a couple others I’m adding to my wishlist. Im glad you named Wool and Brilliance. I read and loved those in different ways. World building is such an important part of a good story. I don’t read a ton of SF/F but those are quiet reads that need more press. And Orphan X, a good one. I agree with you, this TTT is so subjective I didn’t join in but I’m picking up a lot of new titles.

  5. I don’t know if my previous comment went through– my cat walked across my keyboard and made it go wonky. Anyway, I’m excited to see Wool and Brilliance included. I loved both of those, though in different ways. Marcus Sakey rocks! The world building is so important to stories such as those. I Am Pilgrim, I only saw the Will Smith movie. I’m sure the book is better.
    I am picking up so many titles in this TTT because it is so subjective that most bloggers are not repeating other bloggers’ choices.
