Top Ten ALL TIME Favorite Books Of X Genre
In no particular order.
Once upon a time I was obsessed with the dystopian sub-genre (as some of these are not only known for their dystopia qualities). I mainly loved it because each new dystopia I read had me questioning things and I feel like that is a good quality to have in a book. I still enjoy a good one whenever I can find it, but I’m not as into the genre as I once was. (With the exception of ongoing series!) These are ten of my all time favorites. 😊
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (x)
The Hunger Games was my introduction into this genre and was the spark that fueled me needing to get my hands on as many as I could. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve reread the series and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. It will always have a special place in my heart.
Legend by Marie Lu (x)
I picked up Legend almost directly after The Hunger Games and fell in love with it! To this day I still think about the character’s and the ending to the series a lot. I always wished there would have been a tad bit more after the ending.
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken (x)
I’M STILL NOT OVER THIS SERIES! It’s been what, two years since In The Afterlight? I always think about that saying from the book “carpe the hell out of that diem” and then I’ll start missing Liam, Ruby, Chubs, Zu, Vida, and ALL OF THEM. Especially Cole. Cole was my favorite and I’m not over it. I think I need a reread soon. 😭
Inhuman by Kat Falls (x)
It’s been three years since I read this book and there is still not a sequel. THREE YEARS. I loved this book and I’ve been waiting longer than any other book for the sequel and I still don’t even know if there will be one. Which sucks because it ended on the cliffhanger of all cliffhangers. It’s an incredible book though with a really unique idea of a virus that turns people into half animal/half human but they end up adopting more of the animal instincts and it’s extremely contagious so they have a wall built to keep it from spreading. Well, this girl’s father ends up outside of the walls and she goes to find him and well you’ll have to read to find out more… 🙈
Eve by Anna Carey (x)
At first, I didn’t particularly care for this series but it grew on me big time and I fell in love with Caleb and Eve and all of the characters. It has a bit of an odd concept about girls being locked away in schools and taught that men are extremely dangerous. (Which of course the schools turn out to be giant brainwashing places.) It’s a tad cliche and not the strongest of my favorites but I’ll always have a soft spot for it.
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon (x)
The Bone Season is my favorite and I need The Song Rising now!!! (Do I have to wait until March of next year?) This series is one of those that is more of a mixture between Fantasy and Dystopia. It has qualities of both. It also has an incredible kick ass lead female character, Paige, who happens to be one of my top favorites. It’s about a future world where clairvoyants exist but it’s illegal and punishable to be one. The world is ruled by something call Scion who experiment on, tortures, and sends the clairvoyants away to be enslaved by this race of immortal beings that come from another world. Plus, Samantha Shannon’s writing is incredible and I recommend this series to everyone!
Angel Fall by Susan Ee (x)
This series is about a kickass girl named Penryn who lives in a post-apocalyptic world full of Angels that are not all that “holy” they’re actually evil and want humans exterminated. Okay, that sounds a tad cliche but trust me when I say this series is amazing and you’ll love Penryn. I loved this series a lot.
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard (x)
While I’ve had my problems with this series and the characters I can’t help the fact that I love it and each book has been a crazy journey. As far as dystopias go this one has always been one that stuck out because I haven’t read another one like it. And for those of you who have read it. Who else is excited for King’s Cage!? After the ending for Glass Sword that books release can’t come soon enough.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi (x)
Shatter Me is incredible and I love Tahereh Mafi! This whole series and all of the characters were so unique and is the reason why she is an auto-buy author for me. I’ve heard whisperings about her working on a fourth book for this series. Does anyone know if there’s any truth to that?
Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi (x)
Last but not least, Under The Never Sky! Which I feel is an extremely underrated book! I don’t really ever see much talk about it. But it’s a fantastic book and series that I’ve reread a few times. Seriously, if you’ve ever thought of picking up this series I highly recommend it!
Have you read any of the above books? If not, do you want to?
