YA-Dystopian Reading Challenge

October 3, 2009 YA Dystopian Reading Challenge 10


I was so excited to learn that Bart decided to host a YA Dystopian reading challenge!  I’ve been reading quite a bit of this genre lately and always love it when I can find a challenge that meets my current reading taste.

Here are the basics about the challenge:

I plan on reading four books.  They are:
The Knife of Never Letting Go: Chaos Walking: Book One by Patrick Ness
The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
the dead and the gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer

I’m pretty excited! These books are on my list to read during the Read-a-thon, so technically I may finish this challenge in one weekend!

Sounds like a pretty fabulous challenge, right?  So what are you waiting for? Head over to Bart’s Bookshelf and sign up now!!

    I am an enthusiastic fan of The Knife of Never Letting Go and it’s sequel The Ask and the Answer. I can’t wait to hear what you think of them. When finishing, if you’re interested in joining a discussion group on FaceBook, please consider this an invite! And anyone else, too!

    There are lots of interesting themes in these two books. Enjoy!

    It is funny you posted about this challenge. I just finished Feed tonight for an English Comp class. Good luck with the challenge.

    This sounds absolutely fabulous! I am glad you posted your list too. My son put two on his wish list. :)

    I’ve got to write up my post for this challenge as well. You know how I love dystopian!

    I’ll likely include book two of Marsden, book two of Pfeffer and book one of Ness in my listing. I hope you enjoy Pfeffer, I read it some time ago and found it an interesting read.

    I wanted to join this challenge, but I realized I’m stretched a bit thin between now and December – maybe next year!
