Tess Awesome list.


message 132: by Erin (new)

Erin I love YA dystopia books. They are my favorite kind. I think people should right more of them. Unwind and The Hunger Games trilogy are definitely my favorites.


message 131: by Julie (new)

Julie S. I quite enjoy this list. :)


message 130: by Janaleefish (new)

Janaleefish "The Alliance" by Gerald N. Lund is an aswome dystopian novel without a whole lot of graphic violence and language. Perfect for teens and pre-teens, harder to find, but worth it!

It wasnt as good as the other 2, but she always said it was going to be a book about the effects of war and loss, and I do understand why she did what she did with the book. It wasnt just about Katniss/peter/gale....


message 122: by Madeline (new)

Madeline Love this list as well. Glad I finnaly know what my favorite genre is! Absolutely love all of the Hunger Games trilogy, the Uglies series, The Last Book in the Universe, and The Giver trilogy (The Giver, Gathering Blue, and The Messenger).

message 118: by Beth (new)

Beth Knappenberger Question: So I have been hearing a lot of buzz about Blood Red Road and about how its such a great book. But people have been mentioning the weird writing style. So what is the writing of that book that is so peculiar to everyone? Blood Red Road (Dustlands, #1) by Moira Young


message 117: by Creator (last edited Dec 24, 2011 12:22AM) (new)

Creator GONE,HUNGER,LIES and PLAGUE and The Declaration, The Resistence and Hunger Games, Cathching Fire, and Mocking Bird are the spark to the fire of YA dystopan novels . With controversy , action and much more ...

It`s written as the lead character doesn`t really know english or she`s lived in forest all her life.
I didn`t read it, but I tried to. The writing style was too disturbing for me to read it.


message 115: by Taylor (new)

Taylor All the books I'm interested in!


message 114: by Allie (new)

It absolutely is! That cliffhanger ending in the first isn't really so blurred after all. The other two are not quite as amazing as the first, but still great!


message 112: by Tyler (new)

Tyler Black There are some other good reads on this list check it out if your looking for some other good books to read:

message 111: by Kathy (new)

Kathy Dystopian novels are probably my favourite genre of books! Most of the books on this list I've read and LOVED. Forest of Hands and Teeth, Hunger Games and Divergent etc... All favourites!

Yes, Kathy, I totes agree. OMGOMGOMG gotta listen to one direction music!!! (I'm random)


message 109: by ♥ Marlene♥ (last edited Mar 11, 2012 10:07AM) (new)

♥ Marlene♥ I have just started with the YA dystopian books. Okay I did read The Hunger Games series years ago but lately I've read a lot more:
Uglies series. Okay
The Giver Very good
Declaration very good
Birthmarked very good
Jenna Fox okay
Chaos Walking book 1 and 2 are great.
Delirium. Very good
Matched. did not like book 2

Now I am going to give Unwind a try. This list does help.
I tried Branded and Incarceron but not really getting in to them. Maybe I should give them another try? I guess I prefer the books that have a world a bit singular as us with different rules. (Like love is not allowed or lets say children are not wanted) ;)


message 108: by Enza (new)

Enza I loved divergent! I can not wait until insurgent comes out.


message 107: by ♥ Marlene♥ (last edited Mar 19, 2012 04:45AM) (new)

♥ Marlene♥ Just an update. Thanks for recommending me Unwind. Loved it. it is my number 1 book now.


message 106: by Hernani (new)

Hernani satisfaction guaranteed..


message 105: by Enza (new)

Enza Does anyone have any other good YA Dystopia books they recommend?


message 104: by Rayana (new)

Rayana I seriously wanna marry this list right now! Dystopia Society books are the best!


message 103: by Nic (new)

Nic Ummmmm some of the books on here aren't dystopia


message 102: by ♥ Marlene♥ (new)

♥ Marlene♥ True and some are not for teens. (The Host for one, which I loved) Oh well I still like that I can get recommendations.


message 101: by Riim (new)

Riim BLOOD RED ROAD IS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


message 100: by Kezia (new)

Kezia Maybe we're not new anymore to dystopian world but Divergent is incredible.
I'm gonna read Hunger Games trilogy next.
Hope it's good

i totally agree, divergent was the bets book I've ever read. and the hunger games is amazing too


message 98: by Kit (new)

Kit Honestly I think the only reason the Hunger Games books are fist is because it's advertised a lot and people read them because of it. I've seen plenty of other books in the list that deserve a higher and better rating. Not that I'm not a Hunger Games fan because I am except for MockingJay I really disliked that book.

message 93: by Nic (new)

Nic Hush Hush dystopia?


message 92: by Tammie (new)

Tammie It would be nice if some people knew what dystopian meant. There are several books on this list that are not dystopian, but rather sci-fi, fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal.


message 91: by Amanda (new)

Amanda Richards Wow! I think I just added every single one of those to my TBR list... :)Great list!


message 90: by Clare (new)

Clare shrestha my goal is to finish all the books on this list so far the ones I have finished have been amazing love the twist on a future realitys with fantasy and romance thrown in for good measure again AWESOME!!
