Top Ten Favourite Books With A Dystopian Setting


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!

UgliesScott Westerfeld-Β  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 HostStephenie Meyer- I thought this book was far superior to the Twilight series. I really liked the world that Meyer created.

The Hunger GamesSuzanne 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 GardensLauren Destefano- I haven’t finished this series yet, but I absolutely LOVED the weird Science-y Dystopian setting.

Under The Never SkyVeronica 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 MeTahereh 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 ChroniclesMarissa Meyer- I love retellings of fairy tales and The Lunar Chronicles, is so far, very unique.

PartialsDan 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..

DeliriumLauren 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!

  1. I enjoyed Matched & Crossed, but I haven’t read Reached yet. I’m a little worried that I won’t like how it all ends. Your list is great, pretty much all of the others on my TBR!

    • It is hard when you’re worried how a series will end. I think that’s why I haven’t finished the Delirium series yet! πŸ˜€ Thank you for stopping by, I’m following you on Bloglovin and Twitter now too πŸ˜€

  2. Great list! Delirium, Cinder and Under the Never Sky are among my favorites!
    I still need to read Uglies and Matched.
    Thanks for stopping by on my blog earlier πŸ™‚

  3. I haven’t read any of the books on your list, but I did see The Hunger Games movie and I really enjoyed it. I do want to read the books before Catching Fire comes out. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :).

  4. I COMPLETELY agree with you on the Westerfeld series (although I think Pretties was my favourite. I can’t really remember though, it’s been years!). Most of this list is on my TBR pile!

  5. Oh I love your picks! I agree with the Scott Westerfeld books as well as The Hunger Games– those were definitely amazing! I have yet to read Unravel Me, but Shatter Me was quite good! Great list πŸ™‚

  6. GREAT picks! Dystopian is one of my favorite genres and you also listed of some my absolute favorite series! I am all over the Lunar Chronices, THG, Delirium, Under the Never Sky, The Chemical Garden trilogy… And a bunch more that I need to read too! Great list πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  7. Great list! I haven’t read that many dystopian books, though there are some from your list that are on my TBR list. The last one I read was The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. You’ve got good books on this list. I’ve only read a few of them, but the rest look great! The Chemical Garden looks especially interesting. Thanks for stopping by my list.

  9. Great list! Love Cinder and Scarlet, and I’m currently reading Mockingjay! I’m sure I’ve heard of Uglies before but can’t quite place it. Think I might have seen it in Waterstones and decided to wait until I had more money to purchase it!
