Great nomination...I really liked The Fifth Wave. Unfortunately, it was June's BOTM so the group has already read and discussed it. You can check out the thread, but it may contain spoilers.

Please post another nomination if you have one! Thanks

Awesome nomination! I read Ashes in 2011 and I would have to say it is one of my favourites. I didn't like the sequel Shadows though.

Kelly Hull (kellyvan) | 81 comments Ship Breaker (Ship Breaker, #1) by Paolo Bacigalupi Ship Breaker. I think I'm reading this next no matter what. Looks like it has won some awards including Michael Printz and those are ALWAYS good.

LOL Kelly! I guess I read too much because I've read Shipbreaker and Across the Universe. Great nominations!

Anton (antontroia) | 11 comments CyberStorm was fantastic! A bit dark, not exactly YA though...but an easy read.

I'd re-read Gone!

Cheer Papworth (cheerest) | 390 comments We had tons of interest in Arclight (Arclight, #1) by Josin L. McQuein The Testing (The Testing, #1) by Joelle Charbonneau and Sovereign (Sovereign, #1) by E.R. Arroyo last month.

Interesting choice...a classic Dystopian novel, although not really YA. The movie left my sleepless for many a night when I was a little girl.

Thanks, Cheer. Well, I kind of agree with you that it is not strictly YA although the people in the novel were required to proceed with the government processed elimination once they reached the age of 21 (the age was changed to 30 in the film to accomodate the older stars as well as the average age of the paying audience).

Yes you are right Vardan! Logan's Run is an appropriate nomination.

Victoria Law For apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, I loved The Chaos by Nalo Hopkinson , both for its fantastic premise and folktales come to life in a post-apocalyptic setting *and* for weaving in some of the issues facing teen girls even when the apocalypse hasn't happened.
