Top Ten Books With Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic Setting

Top Ten Tuesday
(Images link to Goodreads, Titles link to Amazon)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in which you make a list of ten to do with a certain topic.  This week’s topic is “Top Ten Books With X Setting (top ten books set near the beach, top ten book set in boarding school, top ten books set in England, etc).”  Curly Carla says “I’m choosing dystopian/post-apocalyptic because that’s the only setting that I will have more than a few books in.”

Curly Carla’s Top Ten:

  1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  One of my all-time favorite books.  It’s one that really got me into reading again as an adult.
  2. Love and Decay by Rachel Higginson.  This series ya’ll.  It’s so good!  It’s written like it’s a TV series.  With three seasons and about 12 episodes each.  I’ve reread it three times.  The first six episodes are free in a set.  Check it out.
  3. Mercury Striking by Rebecca Zanetti.  This series is one I recently read and I have really liked it so far.  Great action and love scenes.
  4. The Beautiful Dead by Daryl Banner.  This book had a separate layer that added a bit of melancholy to it. It seemed to be a bit introspective.  One of the reasons I loved it so much.
  5. Uglies by Scott Westerfield. This is one of my favorite books. I highly recommend it to every female out there.
  6. Red Rising by Peirce Brown.  This book was phenomenal; I read it as part of last year’s reading challenge and was surprised it was his first book.
  7. Broken Skies by Theresa Kay.  This book will always make a top ten list if I can squeeze it in there.  Great series.
  8. Delirium by Lauren Oliver.  I really liked the basis for this story.  It was very interesting to think about as I read.
  9. Justice Buried by Hilary Thompson.  This is definitely a diamond in the rough. I discovered this author in a writing group I’m a part of.  This series is a good one. It’s free right now and it only has 44 reviews.  Go grab it!
  10. Imaginations by Tara Brown.  I love Tara Brown.  She has many end names but this is the one I like best because she writes the most amazing storylines that really make you think.

  1. Recently I’ve heard “Uglies” is such a good read and have been curious about “Delirium” for a long while now. Though I’ve read a couple dystopian novels (K.E. Ganshert’s “The Gifting” is a good one!), my main exposure to them has been at the movies, which is, fine by me. 🙂
