      Yep, choosing the books is nearly as much fun as reading them!

    Not that I don’t have enough to do, but I read so much dystopian lit anyway, I might as well. And I LOVED The Knife of Never Letting Go; I just picked up The Ask and the Answer the other day. Hope you’re enjoying it. 🙂

      I’ve not actually started TAATA yet. 🙁 Weather was horrible today, so I skipped going to the library to pick it up!

      Yes there is! I’ve linked to a couple of options earlier, but I’ll link to them here as well:

      Short of ideas for books? Then take a look at the original post, or this tagmesh on librarything, for plenty of great ideas!

    I’m going to join in on this fun challenge and try to get my teens to do it too. I’ll post on my blog and link back to you in a day or two after I chose my book list.

    Not like I don’t have enough on by TBR pile but since several of them are dystopian YA novels I’m in for the challenge. Hmmm..which ones do I want to start with.

    Grrr!!!!! And I said I wasn’t doing anymore challenges! I’m weak.
    As I love this style of novel I’m all signed up, and have ordered Uglies, Exodus and The Knife of Never Letting Go from the library in preparation for the challenge.

    Yahoo!! You are just the awesome of my day Bart! My comment wasn’t really meant as a *hint hint* more like wishful thinking 😉 So glad to see you’ve created this challenge and what a fabulous logo! Now to make my list – my sign up post will be up this week 🙂

    Saw Ann’s post – havent read 3 of the books on her list – own two – so I’m joining both challenges. I know two books I’ll read are:
    Candor by Pam Bachorz
    The Maze Runner by James Dashner

    Not sure of third yet – possibly The Ask and The Answer by Patrick Ness since I have it here somewhere…

    Blame it on New Orleans Chris. I am seriously challenge-challenged, but I’m signing up because I’ve got The Forest of Hands and Teeth and Hunger Games. Might as well do something to shove myself into reading them. 🙂

    Finally decided on which four books I am going to use for the challenge…
    Unwind by Neal Shusterman, Skinned by Robin Wasserman, The Maze Runner by James Dashner, and The Girl in the Arena by Lise Haines. Whew!

    I’ve been reviewing books on my blog as more of a private “journal” activity and was amazed to discover a huge community of book lovers out there (yeah, I’m slow to catch on). I still would have kept my writing to myself, but I am a huge fun of dystopic lit, and I’m always looking for new young adult works (gotta keep my 9th grade students reading), so this challenge has brought me out. I’m currently reading “Uglies” and am excited to read about other books I’ve missed!

    I am really excited about this challenge! I looked at a list and several of the books I want to read are on it so I am looking forward to it. Would His Dark Material trilogy be considered Dystopian? I don’t really know. Thanks!
