Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books in a Dystopian Setting

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.


I love dystopian novels.  These are my favorite series and it was hard to just pick 10.


And I have to mention The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken, Mystic City by Theo Lawerence, The Pledge by Kimberly Derting, and Across the Universe by Beth Revis (I consider the world on the ship to be dystopian).

  1. I LOVE dystopians, too, and have actually read all but three of the titles on your list. I also really liked THE PLEDGE. THE DARKEST MINDS didn't do much for me, however.

    Happy TTT!

    1. Reading dystopians is what really got me into reading YA. Too bad you didn't like The Darkest Minds, it's one of my favorites! ~Pam

  2. I recently started reading some dystopian novels. Under the Never Sky was a great book! Delirium and Shatter Me are both on my to-read shelf. Nice list =)

  3. Hunger Games is the best. I love that series so much. Divergent is fun, too. I need to read Under the Never Sky. I've heard great things about that series. Great list!

  4. We have the exact same taste in books. I have read all of these books! The only one I didn't like was Enclave. But the rest of these are amazing!!! I thought that Matched was really good, but I wasn't too thrilled with the rest of the series. But I really loved the first book, it had a great premise to it.

    And I freaking love Partials and Shatter Me!! Samm and Warner! Two of my top book boyfriends. :) Great list!

    1. I love Samm too, and I can't wait for the next one. As usual, a cliffhanger ending! The first book in the Matched trilogy was definitely my favorite, but I did love the series as a whole. ~Pam

  5. ALL great books... The only two I haven't read (but do own both) are Partials and Article 5.

    1. You should definitely read Partials and Article 5, they are both great. I have a friend who doesn't really read YA and she read Partials and then the sequel and then was frantically searching for the third book because she loved it so much. ~Pam

    1. I remember when I first heard about The Hunger Games, I thought it sounded so strange. I finally picked it up and I was so hooked! Matched--I just loved Ky! ~Pam

  9. Awesome list! There are a couple on this list that have been on my TBR forever (Enclave, Under the Never Sky). Guess I need to actually pick them up ;)

  10. Yes.yes.yes!!! The Divergent world is so much fun even with the dystopian aspects. I can't wait for the movie because it's one of those worlds that will probably look AWESOME on screen.

    Under the Never Sky - so beautiful for the way the world is described by Perry and Aria, sights and sounds with their abilities. And even more captivating when you add the danger of the Aether in. I still need to read the sequel, which I heard was even more awesome.

    Shatter Me - For me, this is solely because of the author's writing, which is just beautiful and deserves to be performed. Otherwise the Reestablishment is just... :O

    Legend - yess!!! Have you have ever looked at the Facebook game that originally inspired the book? I recently found that there was even a little "make your own legend character" game too. It says something about the setting and world when others are able to expand on it in such creative ways.

    The Pledge world is too frightening for me to ever consider, and I'd get claustrophobic of the Across the Universe ship really quickly o.O.

    1. I hadn't heard of the Facebook game for Legend, I had no idea that's what inspired the book. I can't wait for the Divergent movie, either, I hope they do the book justice! The sequel to Under the Never Sky is excellent, I have to say. It definitely doesn't suffer from middle book syndrome. ~Pam

  11. Great list! Almost all are my favorites!
