YA-D2 Dsytopian Reading Challenge

Tuesday, September 14, 2010
It is so hard not to join a reading challenge that speaks to one of my favorite genres and that is just what Bart's Bookshelf's YA-D2 Dsytopian Reading Challenge does.

The challenge starts October 1, 2010 and runs till December 19, 2010 so there is still time to sign-up. I have lots of books currently waiting to be read on my TBR shelf so I decided to go with level 3, which means I will be reading 5 books. 

Here is a list of books I am hoping to read for the challenge:

The Scorch Trails by James Dashner (scheduled for release Oct. 12, 2010 just in time)

Hunger by Michael Grant (I loved Gone and have been wanting to read the next one in this series)

Lies by Michael Grant (figure I might as well finish off the series)

The Other Side of the Mountain by Allegra Gooman (this is a 2011 Truman Nominee and is on my school's book battle list this year)

For the fifth book I am having a hard time deciding between these two. Both sound fantastic.

Candor by Pam Bachorz


Genesis by Bernard Beckett

So help me out, which one should I read?

I'm going to participate in this challenge too. I loved Hunger (though it's a bit long) and The Other Side of the Island is interesting. I had never heard of Candor, so I wishlisted it. I cannot wait to read The Scorch Trials (which is en route to my mailbox right now!) and that's what I'd probably start with.

Good luck!

Ooo thanks for the heads up! I will have to join this! I have Candor and Genesis on my wish list and I can't wait for TST!!

My vote is for Genesis...all of these books look awesome, Jan! Happy reading! :)

Lyla said...

Sweet! I just put a ton of dystopians on hold as research for my WIP (and to depress myself about my plot originality, haha.). I actually have Candor and Genesis waiting to be read now, so I can't offer an opinion... Genesis is really short...

Thanks for pointing me in the direction of this challenge. Dystopian fiction is my absolute favorite genre.

I'm participating in this too! I'm so excited.... I'm trying not to get ahead of myself and start reading now... I can't wait.

I saw your post and decided to take part too!

Genesis! I want to read your review because I think it looks awesome, too.

I think I will join the challenge, too. It looks like fun :) Though I kind of fell apart for the last challenge I tried....

Daisy said...

These sound really good!

I have an award for you over at my blog:

I'm planning on participating in this challenge as well. Every other book I've read lately has been a dystopian novel, so I should have no problem! It's my favorite genre!
