Welcome to Top Ten Tuesdays: a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. The topic of February 2, 2016 is about past or future themed books, so I chose to make a list of ten futuristic books I love.
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games was the first YA novel and dystopia I ever read and I love the protagonist, so naturally it claimed the #1 spot on a list of futuristic books I enjoyed reading.
2. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
The 5th Wave is an amazing take on the classic alien invasion. I’d definitely recommend this to YA sci-fi and dystopia readers.
3. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
I’m not sure whether The Lunar Chronicles are sci-fi or fantasy because they’re fairytale retellings, but I think the wrist embedded ID chips and cyborgs are definitely futuristic elements.
4. Divergent by Veronica Roth
5. The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey
6. Uglies by Scott Westerfield
7. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
8. Insurgent by Veronica Roth
9. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
10. The Giver by Lois Lowry
This would definitely be my favorite “classic” dystopia. It was short, but there was still amazing world building.
