Dystopian Book Challenge

So, if you haven't noticed, I do seem to have a knack for picking great dystopian reads. Something about this genre calls to me. Maybe it is my naturally rebellious nature? Who knows. In honor of my love for the genre, I am taking part in a Dystopian Book Challenge. While I am getting a late start (only a week or two) the event runs through the end of the year. *Update: I think I will continue this challenge even after the end of the year. There is just so much good stuff coming in right now, that I can't put aside for this. Not to fret, I will complete the books and let you know what I think!*

This is my first challenge that I am participating in and I am wondering how well it will go. I may have to go way back in the dystopian pile because I have read many of the present day titles. I really do love this genre and I am glad that I can find other enthusiasts. Here's my list of books that I plan on reading. Mind you, we only have until the end of the year to complete this task.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Ness
The Ask and the Answer by Ness
The Giver by Lowry
The Children of Men by James
We by Zamyatin

It's not a lot, but considering the time restraints and my huge TBR pile, I'll have a tough time. Wish me luck!

Sounds good! I already read the Giver and I loved it.

Good luck! Sounds like a really interesting challenge. I'm a big fan of Dystopian books, even though they don't always have the happiest endings.

I know what you mean about the TBR pile. I love it though!

Good luck! I always have a hard time with challenges and book clubs. I get to distracted by other shiny books. *sigh* Perhaps you will have better luck! :)
