The Dystopia Reading Challenge

Dystopia Challenge

My first reading challenge! Woot! I decided to join the Dystopia Challenge since I'm addicted to dystopia anyway. I'm having the Dystopia Withdrawal Syndrome and I figured this will help me cope up with my deadly disease. This is a year-long challenge. If you're interested, click the challenge icon to sign-up.

How To Participate:
1. Decide which challenge level you'll be doing (further below) - post-apocalyptic is also allowed seeing as they cross over sometimes..
2. Grab the code for the badge down below and post it on a side bar or in a signature (if you want to participate, but aren't blogging, don't have a social network profile or aren't on a forum - Submission For Non Bloggers).
3. Create your own post to let all your readers know you’re taking part in the challenge and at what level (if you're really proficient you can list your books!). Make sure to link back to this page with either one of the buttons or a text link..
4. Use the link form below to enter into the challenge by sharing your challenge post url and your name (either your name, blog name, or both).Please don't use the comment form to participate, only to comment on the challenge or something else..
5. Submit your reviews (if you choose to review them, but that is optional) on the review page.
6. When you’ve completed you’re challenge let us know on the completion post. If you're using a tag or category I recommend sharing the link back to that so everyone can find them.
Challenge Levels
1. Asocial – Choose 5 books to read
2. Contagion – Choose 15 books to read
3. Soldier – Choose 30 books to read
4. Drone – Choose 50 books to read
5. Conditioned – Choose 75 books to read
For extra hard challenges
1. Brainwashed – Choose 76-125 books to read
2. Totalitarian – Choose 126-200 books to read

I'll be doing the Contagion level only. I don't think I'm book addict enough for the Soldier level. It's tragic, but it's the truth. I've only got 13 for now but I'm sure I'll find some more to add to my list.

  1. Across the Universe - Beth Revis
  2. Matched - Ally Condie (review)
  3. Legend - Marie Lu (review soon)
  4. Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi (review)
  5. Bumped - Megan McCafferty
  6. Wither - Lauren DeStefano
  7. Enclave - Ann Aguirre (review)
  8. Awaken - Katie Kcvinsky (DNF)
  9. XVI - Julia Karr (DNF)
  10. Possession - Elana Johnson

    2. Yay, I'm doing this challenge, too! (http://abackwardsstory.blogspot.com/2011/01/dystopia-challenge-2011.html , though I've only read 4 books so far...)

      I'm doing Soldier level. I'll have to root for you! *follows* Yay, a fellow Dystopian lover! And our lists are almost identical, too! I think you only list two books I didn't. Well, 3 b/c I read Matched last year, but again, good taste! :)

    4. Love your list - I've read a few of them. You should add Delirium by Lauren Oliver to you list too! Enjoy the challenge.

    5. I didn't mean for you not to include Across the Universe! You didn't have to take it off your list. I just meant that I personally wasn't adding it. I'm debating about Inside Out by Maria Snyder atm. Parts are, but parts...I don't know, this sci-fi stuff needs its own genre, lol!
