Top Ten Tuesday #23 Top Books for Readers Who Like Dystopia

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme from The Broke and The Bookish that allows users to share their top choices of the topic of the week!

Dystopia is one of my favourite genres to read, because it offers so much versatility to the plot! Here are my recommendations:

1. Divergent by: Veronica Roth
Of course, I had to add this book in. Divergent was my favourite dystopia because it had strong elements of action and romance.

2. The Selection by: Kiera Cass
Again, I could never leave this out. This series was so clever and quick, perfect for anyone in a reading slump!

3. Delirium by: Lauren Oliver
Delirium has such great aspects of love and revolution. Such a great series!

4. The Giver by: Lois Lowry
The Giver was perfectly unique and had some amazing life lessons.

5. Shatter Me by: Tahereh Mafi
This book offered some amazing action, as well as a love triangle that's not cheesy!

6. A Thousand Pieces of You by: Claudia Gray
A Thousand Pieces of You was great because it had an amazing science fiction component!

7. The Hunger Games
The Hunger Games was really an introduction to dystopia for me. It was really fast-paced and moving.

8. The Maze Runner by: James Dashner
I'm not going to lie, when I first started this book, I did not like it at all. However I recently started re-reading the series, and I'm enjoying it a lot!

9. The Host by: Stephanie Meyer
I preferred this book a lot more than the Twilight series. It was scientific and really cool.

10. Birthmarked by: Caragh M. O'Brien
Such a unique book! Birthmarked really caught my attention, and was a really interesting read.

What dystopia books do you like?

  1. A Thousand Pieces of You is literally right next to me right now, haha. I love this week's topic because I've been taking note of books to put on my TBR. Great list!

  2. The Selection is one of my favorite series, I ship Maxon and America so hard. Also, The Maze Runner was quite enjoyable too, though I think the second book was the most awesome thing in the trilogy. Great list. :)

    1. Thanks, Veronika! Maxon and America were just perfect! I'm almost finished The second book, and I agree :)

  3. I've owned Delirium and the Shatter Me series for about a year now and I still haven't read them!!! It's like I know I'll love them so much that I just have to give myself a little time. So many people have read and loved them, hopefully I will too.

    1. I would definitely recommend them! Delirium was sooo good, and I hope you enjoy them!

  4. I keep picking up a thousand pieces of you and then changing my mind. I love most of the other ones so maybe Ill get around to reading it soon! Great post! <3 Bee @ Bee Reads Books

    1. A Thousand Pieces of You was very good, and not what I expected it to be. Thanks, Bee!

  5. Happy Tuesday! Oh my I love all these books! The Selection, Divergent, the Giver...*sigh* they are all amazing! The Host, the Maze Runner....love it! Wonderful TTT!
