June 6:  10 Books From X Genre That I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List

For the longest time I thought that I did not like to read Science Fiction. Then I started paying attention to some of the books I was reading. Even many of my favorite horror stories have a touch of sci fi, but my favorite genre is Dystopian. The best dystopian stories have a mix of horror and sci fi and in many cases the horror is more psychological than in your face blood spraying all over the place.

Here are my top ten Dystopian that are on my TBR. Some of them I am quite sad that I still have not read. Sooner or later!

Alliance by Aubrie Dionne – I loved books one and two but have yet to buy book three. I read these on Kindle but the covers are gorgeous enough to get in hardback.

Cell by Stephen King – As a Stephen King fan, it’s appalling the I haven’t read this yet.

Wither – I have been wanting this since I first saw the cover!

The Trial by Franz Kafka – Another that I really needed to read years ago. The fact that it’s Kafka and dystopian is a win/win.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood – I did purchase this recently! Now to read it!

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood – Another Atwood. She’s fast becoming one of my favorite authors.

Lord of the Flies by William Golding – I’m surprised I never read this in high school. It’s been on my TBR forever.

Matched by ally Condie – Another I really want to read soon! That cover is gorgeous and the series has three gorgeous books!

The Host by Stephenie Meyer – Unlike many, I enjoyed The Twilight Saga so I am very curious where Stephanie wants to take her readers next.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer – I have been dying to read these. I need to tell my family that I need it for Christmas and then I just need time!

What books are you looking forward to?

    I adore dystopian books, it’s so nice to see someone do a list of them! I have read The Host and it is one of my favorites of all-time. Matched was pretty good too, though I know some people didn’t love it. I really need to read The Handmaid’s Tale too. I keep telling myself I will buy it soon, and then I don’t. But I want to read it before I watch the show, so maybe that’ll help. Great list, hope you enjoy them!

      I keep starting the Handmaid’s Tale and it’s just not doing anything for me right now. It’s so horrific, in a sense, that it’s hard to listen to. I have it, when I am ready though. Dystopian is just so much fun for the most part. It’s what got me into reading Sci Fi!

      I’ll have to try The Host next. I’ve been meaning to read that one since it came out!
