It’s Tuesday, again! Wasn’t it just yesterday I wrote about books to read with my book club?
I suppose on a positive note, that makes it one more week closer to spring. Sooo tired of cold and snow, I want sun, warmth, spring and colors! But still February and time for this weeks TTT.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s list:
Ten Dystopian Series I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read
Well here’s the thing, I’m somewhat of an period-genre-reader, for a while it was all fantasy, then science fiction, then via fantasy (again) it was Urban fantasy, then all things vampire, all things zombies… and so on and so forth. But for a couple of year now it’s been mostly books from the post apocalyptic and dystopian genre. I say mostly, there is just so much misery, darkness and never ending pain a girl can take, right?
Luckily for me, dystopian is sort of the In Thing right now, so there are plenty books to read and discover. Why have I missed some of today’s big dystopian titles? The answer, well I like shiny things, and look over there it’s a new book….
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I know, I know, I should have read this series by now, Oh I really should.
But, well, this is embarrassing, haven’t even seen the movies either…Ummm, let’s skip to the next book, shall we.
2. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
This one been on my TBR list for what feels like forever, started on it a couple of times but never come around to actually finish it. Strange, a dystopian story with paranormal elements should really be my cup of tea..
3. Maze Runner by James Dashner
Totally missed this one when it came out, it wasn’t until I read about it becoming a movie that I, “well that might be interesting…”
4. The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
Why, why haven’t I read this series?! Its dystopien and Zombies, hello! Zombies! I don’t have an answer, I just haven’t read it.
5. Legend by Marie Lu
A typical Dystopian story, good reviews keeps turning up, maybe I should have a go at it.
6. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
Cinderella as a Cyborg?
I was first skeptical, but now, well maybe I should put it on one of my TBR lists.
7. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
One more from that famous TBR list, aliens and dystopian, I simply must make some time for it!
8. Linked by Imogen Howson
I do love a story set in a future that on the surface “seems” to be utopian…
Since there is two slots left I will end this list with two classics. The ting is, I of all people should have read these long ago, mostly because in a sense they are some of the books that “made” the genre. Simply put, strong books that deserves to be read!
9. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
10. 1984 by George Orwell
There you have it, today’s list. Some books I really should have read by now, some just waiting to-be-read and one or two will undoubtedly in the end stay at the list; Series I Can’t Believe I Haven’t Read!
How about you, are you like me, all good intention and then a book comes along, and then another one, and another, then you sort of forgot about the first book and it will end on some list with books you should have read, but haven’t.

I know, it quite terrible, I mean it’s the Hunger Game! 🙂
So many books, and too little time to read.
Loved your list, recognized more then I few that I also should have read by now.
I have read…….Fahrenheit 411! And that’s it. I guess I’m more of an old-school dystopian reader? Or a casual one at least 😉
There is nothing wrong with old-school, or casual 😉
Actually, I’m a big fan of old-school dystopian to, even if I’ve missed some of the classics 🙂
Legend is a great book, you must read it!! A great dystopian!
