Dystopian Challenge 2013

 

 

 

Completed!

LEADERbadge

Love Dystopian books? Then this is just the right thing for you! If you’re as big of a fan as I am of post-apocalyptic dystopia books (and even if your are not) you are welcome to join the challenge!
We will try to read 24 Dystopian books in 2013 as the challenge goal, which means 2 per month, if you would like to read them monthly. You can of course make your own schedule. 2 per month is plenty because it still gives you time to explore and love books from other genres.
At the end of the year there will also be a giveaway with great prizes!
Rules
> The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. Each month will have its own link form so you will be able to share your book reviews. You do not have to review the books you read to participate, but only those who read/reviewed at least one dystopian book will be able to participate in the giveaway (you can track your reading without the reviews with Goodreads, Shelfari etc.).
> Books that count in this challenge must include any form of post-apocalyptic theme (book sites like Goodreads are good sources of genre information). The books must befull-length.
> All formats allowed.
Rereads allowed.
It does not matter whether it’s a series or a stand-alone book.
If you are participating, grab the challenge button from below and post it on you blog. You can also make a post with the header (the code is also below). Please include the link back to this post so others will be able to participate as well.
If you will participate, put the sign-up link to your blog post (about the challenge) or blog (for the button) directly into the linky below. Sign-ups will be open until December 20, 2013.
You do not have to list your books in advance, go and do as you please. Read as many as you want (you can read more than 24!) and whenever you want, as long as you have fun!
Info about the giveaway will be available in December 2013.

  1. I love dystopian novels, movies and TV shows too! It’s the will to survive that is most compelling, along with seeing people’s true natures revealed. That’s what I liked most about 28 Days Later, even though it was on the scarier side for me, there was a romantic “we will get through this” element. I’ll follow along. I’m not sure how many I’ll get to this year, the sequel to Poison Princess by Kresley Cole for sure, that comes out in the fall. I tried writing a dystopian book, couldn’t stop writing it and still the world building was off. One day I’ll return to it.

    • I hope you do I would love to read it. I think it would be one of the hardest genres to writ, you would have to create a whole world, not just a few elements. I haven’t read those books, but I will look into them thanks.

  2. Truly awesome challenge! I must say that I am a stickler for dystopian fiction. I’ve read the big three: 1984, Fahrenheit 451, Brave New World. I’ve also started Wool, perhaps I should branch out a bit. Thanks!
