Yeah, I know. Lame.

Bear with.

So, dystopian literature is one of those things that I absolutely adore and am so happy that has become popular! When written right - it has the power to really make you think (again, I refer you to George Romero movies)

So, for this, my list has to be 15 books long (I am a Contagion):
(Also, I apologize for repeats - it happens?)

  1. Cronin, Justin - The Passage
  2. Meyer, Stephanie - The Host
  3. Ryan, Carrie - The Dead Tossed Waves
  4. Ryan, Carrie - The Dark and Hollow Places
  5. Pfeffer, Susan Beth - Life as We Know It
  6. Pfeffer, Susan Beth -The World We Live In
  7. Pfeffer, Susan Beth -The Dead & The Gone
  8. Atwood, Margaret - After the Flood
  9. Atwood, Margaret - Oryx & Crate
  10. Collins, Suzanne - Mockingjay
  11. Condie, Ally - Matched
  12. DeStefano, Lauren - Wither
  13. McCafferety, Megan - Bumped
  14. Dick, Phillip K - Do Androids dream of Electric Sheep?
  15. Westefield, Scott - Specials
No limit, right? Sigh ... so many books, so little time ...

Any more recommendations?


  1. I highly recommend A Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley. If you haven't read it yet, then it definitely needs to be added to your list.

  2. Oh yes! I read that (And 1984, Animal Farm, The Handmaid's Tale ...) all in high school - that's where I began this insane love of Dystopia! :D

    Thanks for the recommendation!
