  1. Oooooh I love Wither by Lauren DeStefano!!

    I also really love this giveaway! So great!

  2. I might be cheating a little here. But I would say, after those Divergent, Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. I know it's more paranormal because of the vampire but it's technically a dystopian society now and I love it. I love the book.

  3. I love Matched. I could not imagine having only 100 books to read!

    ReplyDelete
  4. I also loved Matched and Crossed by Ally Condie. I'd love to have Reached but I'm not sure Santa got my Christmas list this year.

  5. To be honest I haven't really read many. I guess Shatter Me was pretty great, but I think I prefer apocalyptic films more to the books.

  6. Mine would be ASHFALL by Mike Mullin.

  7. Mine is Rising by Stephanie Judice.. This book was really good. It had me at the edge of my seat from start to finish.. Also the sequel Resistance...

  10. I would go with The First Days. I've been eyeing that one for a while. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

  11. dystopian: Delirium & Pandamonium by Lauren Oliver. Looking forward to the finale for this trilogy.
    post-apocalyptic: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

    Those were the first that popped into my mind, but I know I've read several others which are just as good...

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  12. I love the Host by Stephenie Meyer! Just about my all time favorite book.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I also loved Under the Never Sky! A favorite that most people haven't heard of and that I haven't read in quite a while is a book called Winterflight by Joseph Bayly. It's not technically a YA, but it was such a haunting book I always think about it when this topic comes up.

  14. This Is Not A Test, by Courtney Summers. So. Amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh there's a lot of good ones. I think I would pick Pure by Julianna Baggott or Legend by Marie Lu. One post apocalyptic, one dystopian. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think it's probably Wither by Lauren DeStefano or Legend by Marie Lu.

    Thanks for having this! (:

  17. Mine would be Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi. It's just so good, I can't get enough of it!

    ReplyDelete
  18. This year I read Fear Principle by Barbara Chepatitis. It is Book 1 in the Jaguar Adams series and is set in a future where the moon is populated, but society is still recovering from a time of madness where civilization lurched and many horrid crimes were committed as folks lost their minds.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm going to cheat and name my top 3. In order, they would be Delirium, The Immortal Rules and Rot & Ruin. They're all SO GOOD.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Legend by Marie Lu, I cannot wait for the next book!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Hey, would Brave New World count? That is an oldie but a goodie.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I read so many good post-apocalyptic books this year! Shatter Me is by far my favorite. I listened to the audiobook and it was amazing! It's really more of an emotional love story than anything. Runner-ups are Taking on the Dead, which is about a zombie apocalypse, and the Vampire Apocalypse series by HM Ward. These are more action with romance as a side dish.

  23. I think after Hunger Games and Divergent I loved Matched!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Uglies, definitely Uglies! <3 I still don't know why it's not a movie yet..

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh cheese...
    Dystopian is my favorite genre so this is extremely difficult to answer, but...
    I'm going to have to go with Angelfall by Susan Ee!
    THAT BOOK WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That's a tough one, there are so many to pick from. I think I would say Birthmarked by Caragh M. O'Brien.

  55. I loved Delirium by lauren oliver~~~
    the whole concept as love being a "disease" was really creative and fun to read about...

    I also really loved the book EVE by anna carey <3
    even though the plotline wasnt really original and all, the characters were fun to read about and each twist and turn surprised me (in a good way...)

  57. Hands down: Poison Princess by Kresley Cole. She creates a pretty scary and well thought out post apocalyptic world that I would STILL like to live in just to get a shot at Jackson

    ReplyDelete
