One of my all time favourite YA and NA genres is the Dystopian. It’s a love/hate thing. You either absolutely frickin’ love them, or you downright abhor them. I’m definitely on the love side of the fence here. I don’t know what it is about them, but I search them out in the bookshops, the library and on amazon. I’ve read so many of them and, in my humble opinion, there are two dystopian series that stand out the most for me (and from the title of this post you can see what’s coming)…
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Divergent series by Veronica Roth
They are both such different Dystopian worlds, one forcing young people to fight to the death in horrible manufactured games to entertain the masses, the other forcing young people to choose how they want to live out the rest of their lives. In both, however, there is the ultimate bad guy/girl that wants to rule over everyone the way that pleases them and for their own benefit. Now, this post is a poll post, which means, I’m gonna make you choose your favourite of the two series…I know, you can throw things at me now, but I really want to know which series you prefer and why. So, vote in the poll and then leave a comment about why you picked what you did.
Now, I’m gonna go and hide somewhere until the heat that I’ve caused from making you choose settles down a bit. *scurries away and hides under a camp chair*
