My hope with this challenge is to maybe pick up some of you newbies that think that this is not a genre for you. You (as I) may be surprised.
I have compiled a list here of books that fall under this genre. Please check it out and know this is not conclusive by no means, this list is to just help you get a feel for what Dystopia is, and feel free to let me know of other titles that should be on the list.
This challenge will go from January 1 – December 31. I will put up a bi-monthly link for you to link an update post too as to how you are doing with this challenge and thoughts and feelings on the genre. Those participating here on the full challenge and who link to the bi-monthly challenge will go into a drawing for a dystopian novel (TBA with bi-monthly post) that will be sent to any USA address. If you are participating and are out of the US I will connect any winner to a $10 gift card through Amazon.
At the end of the year you will earn badges by how many dystopian books you read (or listened to!) over the year. Also, at the bi-monthly link ups, a question will be posted for your update, something like, what did you learn about survival in the dystopia books you have read these past two months? Something just for fun.
