Karis (YA Litwit) Jacobstein (YALitwit) | 419 comments Is there no genre board for Dystopia? I'm dumbfounded, given the fact that we all seem to love the genre so much! Well, I guess we have one now...

I just read Pure by Julianna Baggott. I almost gave up on it because it was SOOOOOO slow to start, but I am glad I stayed with it, because it turned out to be amazingly good. One of the best dystopias I've read since The Hunger Games. The imagery and attention to detail were phenomenal and the plot was so good. I think this trilogy is going to be epic, especially since the rather tedious backstory is out of the way.


Dawn | 6 comments Look for apocalypse whenever ;)


Ottilie (ottilie_weber) | 110 comments I haven't started the series, but I heard Gone (Gone, #1) by Michael  Grant was an apoclyptic story

I dunno if I'd classify it as apocalyptic. After the secret is revealed it's kinda . . . I dunno. Ambiguous?


Ottilie (ottilie_weber) | 110 comments Haha oh really? interesting! Can't wait to read it then!

I've been meaning to read this for ages. I've heard really good things.


Ottilie (ottilie_weber) | 110 comments Same!


The Cover Contessa (TheCoverContessa) I thought it fell underneath "Sci Fi"...but not sure? I see Divergent under there. This is my favorite topic right now, I just keep picking these books up!
