I've always wondered how classics become classics. I guess a book just has to be relevant for long enough. If you ask me, books like Harry Potter are books that have lived long past their publication date. Even today, people continue to talk about them. I think such a series will definitely become a classic in the future.

Even though I do not like them, I think the Hunger Games series might become Classics in the future.

I think that the book that struck me the most recently is "The kyte runner" by Khaled Hosseini. It will propably become a classic because I've never read anything similar and it has all the features to be annoverated between the "classics"

I agree with the posts saying Harry Potter will become a classic, but also I think that The Perks of Being a Wallflower could be a classic in the future.

I think the books that this generation loves will be handed down to the next, and that's how you make a classic in my opinion. The Hunger Games and Divergent come to mind because they were so popular, maybe even Twilight.
