Top Ten Distopian Books I would recommend to someone who doesn't read Dystopian

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful people over at The Broke and the Bookish
This week the list is, List 10 books you would recommend in x genre to to someone who doesn't read x genre.

The Hunger Games Trilogy - These books were the first true dystopians I read outside of books I had to read for school. I loved them and recommend them to everyone I know because I hope everyone else reads them and loves them too!

 Divergent by Veronica Roth - When reading dystopian I find myself always looking for the next Hunger Games, and I think this one is it! This was just an all around great book!

Matched by Ally Condie - This was another good one. This one was more of a mental book for me, Other dystopians involve physically fighting, this one seemed more about taking control of yourself and your choices. I enjoyed it an look forward to reading the next one soon.

Possession by Elana Johnson - I absolutely adored this book! It was different and kept me turning the pages until I was done. The companion novel will be out soon and I can't wait to read that one either.

Bumped by Megan McCafferty - This one was different and involved a topic that I don't think many people would try to tackle in teen fiction. But Megan did this very well. I am actually dying to read the next book! I was left with quite a few questions and I really want answers. 

Wither by Lauren DeStefano - This is another one that I thought was very well done but tackled a topic that most people would write about when writing for teens. When I started this book I really thought I was going to hate it, but by the end I was so sucked into the story that I couldn't believe it was finished. I am not so patiently waiting for the sequel to be released. 

Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi - I really enjoyed this story, it was different and well written and a pleasure to sit and devour. Being a very new release I don't want to say much more than I loved it.

Gone Series by Michael Grant - This set of books is fantastic. On one hand I want to rush in and save these kids but on the other I am curious to see just how much they can deal with. I am so anxious to get my hands on the next installment in this series. 

Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien - I wasn't sure I was going to like this one when I started it, but once I was a handful of pages in it sunk its hooks into me and I just couldn't stop. I do look forward to reading the second book in this series soon. 

Enclave by Ann Aguirre - The one was fantastic, There was so much to this book, and it at times was VERY creepy. I remember finishing this one and being so upset because waiting a year for the next one just seemed so cruel. 


  1. OMG, I really should've gone with dystopian!! DAMN! I love dystopians, and I think most of these were on my list anyways LOL!

  2. I love dystopian books! I still need to read Wither! :) And a lot of them more :) But I definitely loved Hunger Games and Divergent! :)

  3. I loved The Hunger Games and Matched, but I must admit to being the one person in the whole world who didn't like Divergent.

    I've got most of the others on my TBR list already and I hope to get to them soon :)
