YA-Dystopian Reading Challenge

I love these challenges and I have even read several in this genre already this year so I will love reading even more!

Hosted by Bart's Bookshelf, the YA Dystopian Reading Challenge takes place from October 15 to the end of the year.

"Dystopia (from the Greek δυσ- and τόπος, alternatively, cacotopia, kakotopia, cackotopia, or anti-utopia) is the vision of a society in which conditions of life are miserable and characterized by poverty, oppression, war,violence, disease, pollution, nuclear fallout and/or the abridgement of human rights, resulting in widespreadunhappiness, suffering, and other kinds of pain. (Source: Wikipedia)"

The idea is to have fun with this, So your level of participation is up to you, simply pick a target of between 1 & 4 books to read during the two and a half months of the challenge.

Here's my list:

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
The Giver, Gathering Blue, The Messenger by Lois Lowry
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
Pretty Monsters by Kelly Link

Oh MAN!! I just finished the "It's the End of the World" challenge and yet I STILL want to do this! It's my favorite genre! I have no idea why, but now I have to make a list :) I haven't read the last two on your list, I'm off to look them up :)
