Dive Into a Dystopian Universe
Finished with The Hunger Games trilogy? Looking for a new dystopian world to dive into? Don’t despair; there are plenty to choose from. The dystopian worlds out there vary from dark and gritty to ones filled with romance.
Check out Delirium by Lauren Oliver to see what the world would be like if the government outlawed love and forced all citizens to receive a cure at age 18. Ally Condie’s Matched trilogy features another dystopian world plagued with love and courtship issues. Looking for something a little more action packed? Variant by Robinson Wells takes us to an elite boarding school that seems like it will be the ticket out of dead end life for Benson Fisher. Divergent by Veronica Roth is a world where you have to choose one personality trait and living by it. Or try out an older dystopian series like Scott Westerfeld’s The Uglies or The Giver by Lois Lowry.
