The Greatest Dystopic/Fantasy Books

A compilation of the best books in fantasy and dystopian fiction! All items in this list are personal favorites and are stories of characters I care deeply about (some of the guys, I have a crush on). Enjoy!

I've always had a low regard for YA. But then that was before I came across authors like Suzanne Collins and Juliet Marillier. =) This list will be constantly updated to reflect the latest ones I've read and think good enough to recommend.
