2016 Dystopia Reading Challenge

Hello, guys! I’ve decided I’m going to join the 2016 Dystopia Reading Challenge hosted by Tracy from Cornerfolds and Claudia from My Soul Called LifeI love dystopian books and I have so many on my TBR that I need to read so I might as well join this challenge in the hopes that it’ll kick my butt into gear. 
There are four different challenge levels depending on how many books you read, and while I hope I can get to Leader (16+ books) I’m going to lower the pressure and say let’s aim for Rebel (6-10) books to begin with. 

Challenge Guidelines

Here are some of the books I might read for this challenge. I can’t promise I will start and/or finish all of these, it’s just a tentative list. And I will no doubt discover new dystopias in 2016 that I’ll choose to read. I’ll also gladly take suggestions 😀

* Someone answered my question on Twitter about Daughter of Smoke & Bone right when I finished making this picture, saying it’s not really a dystopian novel, so I won’t count it. I’ll still read it in 2016 though. 

Can the rest of these be counted as dystopian novels? You tell me, I’m just going by what I’ve heard or what they’re listed as on Goodreads. I guess I’ll figure that out as I read them. 

I picked 172 Hours on the Moon because it’s Norwegian and I haven’t read any Norwegian sci-fi or dystopias before, so that’s going to be interesting. It’s also been ages since I read an actual book in Norwegian. 

Are you joining this challenge? What dystopian books should I read in 2016? Do you know of any 2016 releases that seem good? Do tell!

    I love dystopians, although I haven’t been reading as many lately. Legend and An Ember in the Ashes were fantastic though, so I hope you get a chance to read them!! I haven’t read any of the others you mentioned, but I’ve been really wanting to read Red Rising and I’ve heard amazing things about it. This looks like a great challenge and I’ve been thinking of doing it as well. Good luck with the challenge and I hope you enjoy all the dystopias! 🙂
