Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely ladies over at The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is Top Ten Favourite Books With A X Setting. I have decided to pick my top ten books with a dystopian setting, as I’ve been into my dystopian reads recently! These books aren’t necessarily in order. I find it way too hard to judge my books against each other.
These settings are dystopian settings I enjoyed reading about. Click on the book image to take you to the Goodreads page for the book!
Uglies– Scott Westerfeld- I started this series before I became a book blogger, although I have reviewed Specials and Extras on here. Specials was one of my favourites of the series. I found Extras quite pointless and missed Tally. I loved the dystopian setting in this series.
Matched- Ally Condie- I haven’t finished this series yet, but aside from the pretty covers I think it’s quite a ‘nice’ dystopian read. It’s not the best written series in the world, and there are far superior dystopian reads but I think it’s certainly an interesting concept if not the most original!
The Host– Stephenie Meyer- I thought this book was far superior to the Twilight series. I really liked the world that Meyer created.
The Hunger Games– Suzanne Collins- This is another series that I read in my pre-blogging days. I loved Katniss being such a kick-ass female character. The dystopian setting freaked me out a little bit, but it’s intriguing for sure.
The Chemical Gardens– Lauren Destefano- I haven’t finished this series yet, but I absolutely LOVED the weird Science-y Dystopian setting.
Under The Never Sky– Veronica Rossi- I haven’t read Through The Ever Night yet, but I loved the setting of Under The Never Sky. It felt like I was right there in the action.
Shatter Me– Tahereh Mafi- I love this series and the setting that Tahereh Mafi has created. It’s very creative. The covers are beautiful too, although very similar. The third and last book in the series is going to be called Ignite Me. I can’t wait to see what happens!
The Lunar Chronicles– Marissa Meyer- I love retellings of fairy tales and The Lunar Chronicles, is so far, very unique.
Partials– Dan Wells- I haven’t started Fragments yet, but I have it ready for me to read. I really like the concept of it and hope to read Fragments soon..
Delirium– Lauren Oliver- I’ve still got Requiem to read, but I’m putting it off because a lot of people haven’t enjoyed the ending at all. This makes me so nervous as I really like this series!
Please feel free to leave your links to your Top Ten lists. I’d love to know what setting you’ve picked this week!
