Top ten books I want my future kids to read || because they need to know all the AWESOMENESS

ten books i want my future kids to read

We read a lot of awesome books. And every year there are many more really great ones coming out. But all of us have at least a few books which we wish would become classics, or would live for long and be read by many others.

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is Top ten books I want my future children to reads (Or nieces and nephews, Godchildren, etc.) Basically the next generation.

I am not going to tweak this topic because I love it, and cannot wait to talk about all the books* I will make my kids read. They don’t have a choice. They have to read these. Why? Because I SAY SO.** This is also perfect because I’ll probably be referring back to this list years later as my memory sucks. And I’ll be in a dilemma to choose which ones first.

And which bookworm doesn’t want their kids to take after them and love reading as well? We all do. If we can’t influence others, at least our kids right?

*only ten in this post but MANY MORE EXIST

**I honestly cannot wait to be a parent and use those that line. Teehee.

Onto the books.

[1] Harry Potter

I mean, DOES THIS EVEN HAVE TO BE SAID? I honestly want this series to become a classic. It’s perfect for the pre and early teens. I want the kids to feel the magic of Hogwarts too.

[2] Warcross

I’m pretty sure by the next decade we’ll have a whole new array of advanced tech gadgets, and we might even be living in a world like in Warcross. I really do want the next generation to read this and get a sense of what we imagined the future as. At least somewhat.

[3] All the Shadowhunters books

Because this was my first main fandom and I’m still Shadowhunter trash. Forever will be. And my kids will have to, at least, read the books. Even if they don’t love it. I’ll just push these books on them.

[4] Percy Jackson, both the series

I LOVED the series in middle school. Percy Jackson and the Olympians was really good but Heroes of Olympus was one of my absolute favourites. These two are PERFECT to read in middle school and damn if I don’t get my kids to read these.

[5] All the light we cannot see

All the fantasy aside, I do want the next generation to know the world’s history. We, ourselves, are quite far from the World Wars and I’m sure the next generation will consider them unimportant. I got a proper glimpse into World War 2 only when I read this book (since my history lessons were mostly centered on the Indian history) and I really liked it. I liked knowing what happened and I would be too bored to read a non-fiction book, so this is perfect.

[6] Milk and Honey

This collection of poems by Rupi Kaur are simply beautiful. They talk about everything so well. Despite whatever improvements, I’m sure women in general will appreciate these words no matter when.

[7] The Secret Garden

A classic and a must for young kids. I absolutely ADORED this book when I read it. All about secret magic and mysteries. I gobbled it up as a kid and I’m sure years later my kids will too.

[8] Little Women

Another classic which I adored. I must have read this thrice before I could bear to return it to the library. I LOVED the sisters. Especially since I am a single child and I really wanted siblings, I loved this book so much.

[9] The Immortals of Meluha

This trilogy is the only one on Indian Gods that I liked. This is the only one which is a new tale with the same basics that I quite liked. And I really want my kids to read this one.

[10] How I braved Anu Aunty and co-founded a million dollar company

I LOVED THIS BOOK. It’s so humourous and fun to read. It’s an autobiography of an Indian entrepreneur mostly about his journey of standing against the society’s views and doing his own thing. And becoming successful with it.

I read it in tenth grade and other than the fun part, it did motivate me to do my own thing as well. I haven’t really, but I want to. And I’m sure the next generation will be able to draw inspiration from this as well.



And those are the ten books I picked!

Have you read any of the books I mentioned? What did you think of them? Are there any which are on your TBR? Did you post on this week’s Top Ten Tuesday as well? Link your post in the comments and I’ll check it out!

    1. I basically want my kid to read EVERYTHING I’ve liked lol. Instead of the regular bedtime stories, I’ll probably bring out these books XD Maybe not ones with demons at an early age though, don’t want to scar the poor kid.
      Thank you so much!
