Here’s my weekly Top 5 Tuesday hosted by the wonderful Shannah @Bionic Bookworm Blog (go check out her blog; it’s amazing!). This week will feature (as the title suggets) my Top 5 Dystopian books. When I started reading
all the time when I was 16, Dystopian books were all I wanted to get my hands on. It was also a golden era for Dystopian books. The books featured in this list are therefore very popular.
Hunger Games by Susan Collins
I devoured this series. Incredibly well-thought. This series is a masterpiece. The capitol and districts idea mixed with the idea of hunger and violence is brilliant. It’s so cruel but entertaining and the perfect embodiment of “Panem et circenses“
Divergent series by Veronica Roth
When the first movie came out, I fell in love and I read the three books immediately. The ending was quite a bold choice from the author but I really enjoyed the universe. The first book is my favorite out of the three.
The Selection series by Kiera Cass
I love love love the concept of the books. It’s kind of like: The British Royal Family meets the Bachelor. It’s so cute and fluffy. *sigh* However, I read it as a teen and I don’t know if I would enjoy the books as much now. But they’re a part of me.
1984 and Animal Farm by George Orwell
I was too young to appreciate the masterpieces these two books were. No other books scream”Dystopia” more than these two. Do yourself a favor and read them.
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles series) by Marissa Meyer
I’m a sucker for fairytale retellings and these retellings are very well executed. (See my review for Scarlet, here) You can find discreet elements of the Fairytale with a dystopian twist. A Must-Read!
