Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!
Today’s topic was originally ’21st Century Books I Think Will Become Classics’ and while I LOVE this idea and will definitely check out other posts, I wasn’t feeling inspired myself. Maybe because I mostly read fantasy, romances and fantasy romances and while I adore those books, I doubt they will become classics (though perhaps this idea of a ‘classic’ is a little outdated, but that’s a discussion for another time).
So instead I twisted the topic to become: books that are CLASSIC LINDSEY. Yes, these are the books that are classics TO ME, either because they feel so much like me, or because they’ve become so ingrained in my life I can’t imagine myself without them. Like, if someone wanted to get to know me, I’d make them read these books.
So without further ado, let’s get into it!
Red Winter by Annette Marie – my absolute favorite, love the Japanese mythology, started my Annette Marie obsession, re-read it yearly and still sob and swoon every time
Taming Demons for Beginners by Annette Marie – two Annette Marie books on this list? Classic Lindsey. Main character is a shy booknerd who hates conflict and loves cookies
Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata – another shy heroine that hates conflict and has self-confidence issues. Also, pen pal romances are the best type of romances
The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune – Linus Baker may be a 40-year old gay man and I am not, but other than that we share MANY similarities. Also, found families own my heart. And TJ Klune may be the author who best matches my own brand of humor.
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas – my favorite SJM, I want to live in Velaris please, the Court of Dreamers is where I belong, also yay for the Hades/Persephone inspirations
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell – girl with social anxiety who prefers fictional worlds over the real one? Yeah, this is about as Classic Lindsey as it’ll get.
Let’s Talk About Love by Claire Kann – Alice is another character that I relate to on SO MANY levels, okay?
Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson – I think about becoming a sword-wielding bad-ass librarian whose mission it is to protect the books too much.
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – part of me may consist of fluffy fairytales, but the other part relates more to this book: dark, intrigue and a lot of feminism.
Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost – I may not personally relate to bad-ass, vampire-hunting Cat Crawfield, but if there’s one TV Show that would be Classic Lindsey it would be Buffy The Vampire as it has consumed my entire youth, and this amazing series hits ALL THOSE SPOTS to me too.
