      July Supporter Giveaway   07/01/2019

      It's Christmas in July! The winner of the July Supporter giveaway will receive this beautiful Barnes & Noble edition of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, as well as a special Charles Dickens tea by  theliteraryteacompany.co.uk .   I've been keeping this book a secret for so long (I couldn't wait until Christmas!) It's actually from a really lovely independent bookshop in Hay-on-Wye, the town of books. I'm so glad I finally get to show you! The picture doesn't even do it justice. A nice feature that you can't see in this image - the page edges are gold and (an extra surprise for the winner) the back is just as beautiful as the front! We also now have twice as much tea as previous giveaways!  (Thank you Literary Tea Company!)   As always, supporters are automatically entered into the giveaway and a winner will be chosen at random at the end of the month. If you want to enter this giveaway but you aren't a supporter, you can join in here https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum .   Good luck

Looking for new dystopian series

Recommended Posts

Hi

I am looking to read a new dystopian book series.

I fell in love with The Hunger Games and Divergent series of books and would like to read something on the same category.

Can anyone recommend anything to me?

Thanks

You might like the Legend series by Marie Lu, the Delirium series by Lauren Oliver, Gone series by Michael Grant, The Maze Runner series by James Dashner. I've got some more YA dystopians on my TBR (to-be-read) pile, but I haven't read them yet so I don't know if they are good, though they have received good reviews (for example, Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld, Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman, Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi, Breathe duology by Sarah Crossan).

definitely try the Unwind series by Neal Shusterman (it contains quite a few books and keeps the story going, every book gripping you just as much as the last) and the Legend trilogy (my favourite books) by Marie Lu.

 

and also Killables by Gemma Malley, but only as a last option

Dennis E. Taylor's We Are Legion (We Are Bob) is a sci-fi novel with dystopian themes. It's not too heavy on the sci-fi and explores the relationships of nations following a world ending cataclysm. I'd recommend it to people who don't like sci-fi as a genre as despite it being quite technical, it doesn't pile it on in great heaps. It's the first of (up to the time of writing) three books in a series, but I've not yet read the other two.
