Other Bloggers in the Dystopian Spirit!


I want to do a little round-up of just some of the bloggers out there who have been in the dystopian spirit!

Celi.a from Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia has read and reviewed The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and Unwind by Neal Shusterman on her blog! She's also giving away a copy of Knife of Never Letting Go, so head over for a chance to win! And you'll want to read this gripping first of a trilogy.

Bart's Bookshelf is hosting a YA Dystopian Challenge, follow the link for details.

Rhiannon Hart specializes in Teen Dystopian reading and reviews. Here's a link to her most recent Dystopian Challenge Wrap-up, including links to reviews like The Forest of Hands and Teeth, Skinned, The Declaration, The Hunger Games, etc. Rhiannon has been described as the go-to lady for all things Dystopian!

Brizmus has a few really good reviews on We by Yevgeny Zamyatin (a truly awesome book. I read it years ago and still remember it as seminal dystopian fiction), and The City and the Stars by Arthur C. Clarke. The short stories of Arthur C. Clarke got me hooked on SciFi in general when I was a teen. I have this wonderful pocket edition of a small collection of his stories and I've kept it for years. It's one of those books I'll never part with.
I'll post links to more bloggers in the dystopian spirit later in the week! Have I missed you? Leave links to your reviews in the comments! I'd love to read them.

Yay! Thanks for the linking! I may not get to Genesis as planned tomorrow, but there'll be something dystopia-themed! I'm loving this week so far - thanks for putting it together!

Celi.a: Your dystopian teen week blogging has been awesome. I love your reviews and what you've been reading. You have an entertaining way of assessing a book, and a great eye for detail.
