So You Loved The Hunger Games...

The Hunger Games is a young adult book that has infiltrated the adult world! As a result, dystopian fiction has taken off recently. Did you read The Giver back in the day? The Giver was ahead of its time. Now, there are so many modern versions to choose from! I read The Hunger Games back before it was popular, and when I was reading it, I was like, "What the heck am I reading?" It was so weird and violent. But I kind of liked it. And then everyone else started reading it and liking it too, and I breathed a big sigh of relief that I wasn't weird for liking it!

Wait - you haven't read The Hunger Games? Stop. Close the blog. Proceed to Barnes & Noble. Purchase The Hunger Games. Read it. (It won't take long.)

You're back? You read it? Good. You loved it, right? Now you need to read the next two books in the trilogy. Duh.

Now, if you can handle it, you can delve into the crazy world of dystopian fiction! (You may need to intersperse with lighthearted books every now and then, but it is worth it!) Try the Uglies. It came out way before the Hunger Games, but it is one of my favorites of all time. It's a four book series.

Now tackle all of the great dystopian fiction that has come out in the wake of Hunger Games. They may or may not give you nightmares, but I can't stop!!

(Sequel to Matched... doesn't come out until November 2011. Boo.)

(Sequel to Maze Runner. Already out!)
Super freaky, but good message and frighteningly realistic.
Soon to be (or already is?) a hit movie!

Happy Reading!!

Is it sad that I had to Google "dystopian" fiction? Nonetheless, it looks like I have some new books to add to my "hope to eventually read" list. :-)
