Dystopia Reading Challenge

Dystopia Reading Challenge

First things first, I gave brilliant years a make-over! I’m quite pleased although I kind of miss the cherry blossoms. What do you think?

Dystopia Reading ChallengeSecondly… I FINALLY decided to join Ula‘s Dystopia Reading Challenge 2014! It was about time. I love dystopia and I don’t get why I didn’t participate sooner.

I have quite a few other reading challenges going on, so I will be participating as Recruit (level 1, meaning 1 to 6 books). I am aiming for 5-6 books, but hopefully I’ll be able to read more than that!

A review for one of my favourite dystopian books – which I recently revisited – is coming up soon. I haven’t decided yet what else I’ll read for the challenge. I do want to avoid series… I have a few books in mind but – while some people categorise them as dystopia – it always remains to be seen if they actually fall under the dystopia genre. Recommendations for stand-alones are welcome! 🙂

So far, I read this year:

  1. Harmony by Project Itoh
  2. Lonely Hearts Killer by Tomoyuki Hoshino
  3. Divergent (Divergent, #1) by Veronica Roth

Ula is for this challenge also hosting the awesomest giveaway HERE, there’s still some time to check it out!

  1. Welcome welcome, may the odds be in your favor! 😀

    You can also link up the books you read so far in 2014, all the previous month’s linkies are still open. Any book in 2014 counts no matter when you join.

    And love the new look, simple and clean 😉

    1. Thank you and thank you 😀

      So far I’ve only posted a supershort review on the two Japanese dystopian novels I read, but a proper review for one of them is coming up this week 😉

  2. Have you read Oryx and Crake by Margeret Atwood? It is the first in a series, but can be read as a stand-alone just fine. I ended up kind of disliking it (but definitely appreciating it!) , but it’s certainly a fascinating take on dystopian fiction.

    1. I wasn’t planning on reading the sequels at all, or really anything else by Atwood. Now because I mentioned Oryx and Crake as a suggestion I’m drawn in and do want to read more. Oops 🙂

      1. I’ll check it out 😀 Thanks for the suggestion! I absolutely adored The Handmaid’s Tale by Atwood, I definitely recommend that too as far as dystopia goes. (I also read her Penelopiad but didn’t like that at all…)
