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:
- Runs from October 15-end of the year
- Definition of dystopia: is the vision of a society in which conditions of life are miserable and characterized by poverty, oppression, war, violence, disease, pollution, nuclear fallout and/or the abridgement of human rights, resulting in widespread unhappiness, suffering, and other kinds of pain. (Source: Wikipedia)
- Participants can choose to read between 1 and 4 books within the challenge time frame.
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!!
