Dystopian Giveaway Hop! (INT)


This awesome giveaway is hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer & My Shelf Confessions.
The full linky list is here!

I'm a huge fan of dystopian books! I even loved them before The Hunger Games made it the new popular genre. ;) Nowadays it seems lots of debut authors are making their way via dystopia, and even mixing it up with some paranormal as well. It's a hit or miss, like any genre, and here are a few favorites of mine, but if you win, you can pick out any book that's dystopian as long as TBD ships to your country! (And it's under about $12 USD) :)

Rafflecopter below the pics :)

  2. The best part about dystopian books for me is seeing the various and numerous ways authors think us humans can mess things up and destroy our futures. I love the darkness and intensity of these stories.

    I like seeing what happens when ideas that are on the margins in our own society become the dogmas of other societies.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I love how dystopian books often seem kind of far fetched, but if done correctly, it's easy to imagine that our world could be like that hundreds of years in the future. It's fun to speculate!

    ReplyDelete
  7. The possibility of what our country might become. I can totally see half of the dystopians I read actually coming true. :D

  11. what I love most about dystopian novels is that through them I find a different world. So much different than our. I also like how the characters, at first, just go with the flow and the next time, they're going against the government. I sooo love Dystopian Novels. <3 :))

    ReplyDelete

  45. The same as your answer--I really liked the idea of building another world from author's imagination. It shows their talent and it's an adventure to us readers. Though I realized that the concept of dystopian is all the same--not a very good Government and Officials and Rules and the protagonists are always Rebel. But still, I enjoy them. :)

    ReplyDelete

  50. Dystopians are one of my favorite genres and I love the strong unbreakable characters, unique settings and world buildings and how a romance is still possible sometimes in the most dire circumstances. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like seeing how the new worlds are created and how the characters fit into the world, plus it's interesting seeing where this new world is located in comparison to our world.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm curious to read about what went wrong exactly. You know, maybe we can prevent it from actually happening in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I like to know what happened for the world to end up that way and how they resolve their issues.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Great question! Takes some thinking. I would say mine is the unique ideas that are created like: having to be genetically matched to provide the perfect society, or aptitude tests for employment/status, or the games they create to weed out the weak. I just love dystopic books with a passion. They help my imagination explore now avenues instead of the current life scenarios. Makes you wonder if this society will ever steep to those types of ideas. Maybe the future holds something similar and maybe not.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I agree about the world building, but I also love the pieces that make you really think about our decisions and how they could effect the future.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like to see how the world changed from before the dystopian society came around and how the government/'man in power' takes over people's lives. Along with the slip ups the main character notices to finally come to the conclusion that those in charge are not looking for the people'e benefit but rather their own.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Now that you mention it, I also really enjoy some of the strange customs in the dystopian worlds, but I also really enjoy that many dystopians explore the darker aspects of human nature and what people would be willing to do to one another to survive at all costs.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I love reading about how a society tries to overcome these trials and learns to survive!
