First time taking part in this meme! It's hosted by Broke and Bookish. I decided to do it because this week's Top Ten is just awesome. Top ten *insert genre here*! Of course I'd pick dystopias. :) I'm rather disappointed to say that I only managed to think of 7 dystopias (but two are trilogies!) that deserved to be on that list so far. I hope to expand it though.
6. Maze Runner by James Dashner
Although the character-building was a bit lacking (at least to me), I loved how gripping the story was. Definitely a good, action-driven story.
5. Wither by Lauren DeStefano (review HERE)
This book made me feel disgusted, appalled, upset. Definitely not for weak. Strong heroine, amazing female characters. The story is absolutely terrifying and that's what I actually love about dystopias; it's supposed to terrify us! I can't wait to read Fever.
4. The Giver by Lois Lowry (review HERE)
What can I say about this classic? I read it in just one evening, totally engrossed in the story. It's the "1984 for teens" and a base for all the later dystopias if anyone asks me. A must read.
3. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card (review HERE)
One of my absolute favorites. It's less dystopian and more sci-fi, but traces of dystopia can be of course seen throughout the book. Ender is one of the most fascinating characters I've stumbled upon in books ever.
2. Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins
This one doesn't need explanations, does it? Even in my "reading reluctantly" period, I read all three of them in a week or so. One of the best books for teens after Harry Potter. ;)
1. The Knife of Never Letting Go (the whole Chaos Walking trilogy) by Patrick Ness
I need to write a review for these books. They are my all time favorites. The characters, the plot, the emotions, the writing. Nothing is misplaced here. It's the best dystopia up to date and I yet have to read anything that would wow me more than Patrick Ness' books. If you haven't read/heard of these, go to the nearest store/library and... read it! I assure you that you won't regret it.
What are your top ten this week?
