The Recommendation list for DYSTOPIAN!

To start us off, here's a little cartoon my professor sent us! It's on my Dystopian WIP's storyboard, and so I wanted to share it with all of you! (Extra credit if you know the context of the cartoon!)

This post made possible in part by contributions from book bloggers like you!

My last Suggestion Box was for (YA) dystopian/post-apocalyptic literature, and you sure provided a lot of good recommendations!

Here's the list:
The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins (most popular answer!)
Declaration, Gemma Malley
Unwind, Neal Shusterman
The Uglies series, Scott Westerfeld
The Gone series, Michael Grant
The Maze Runner, James Dashner
The Chaos Walking trilogy, Patrick Ness
Life as We Knew It, Susan Beth Pfeffer
The Forest of Hands and Teeth & The Dead Tossed Waves, Carrie Ryan
Birthmarked, Caragh O'Brien
Girl in the Arena, Lise Haines
Lockdown, Alexander Gordon Smith
The House of the Scorpion

and of course, our "classic" favorite - The Giver, Lois Lowry

Thanks to all the awesome contributors! Now...
  • Have you read any of these books? Any favorites that you see? Can you think of any books to add (that are YA/MG)?
  • Do you like dystopian/post-apocalyptic fiction?
Ohhh ohh ohhhhhhhh! In other exciting news: MAZE RUNNER #3 now has a name! It's called The Death Cure! :D

The Hunger Games is a favorite of mine. I did like The Forest of Hands and Teeth and The Dead Tossed Waves but the Hunger Games is my favorite dystopian.

I've heard good things about The Line also but haven't had a chance to read it yet (so I didn't recommend it).

Great list, I'm starting to get into the dystopian craze so I might have to read some of these that I haven't read yet.
