Do you know what it is?
IT IS DYSTOPIAN FEBRUARY.
There are many understandings of dystopia and this is often a surprisingly controversial issue. I want to preface this month of dystopian reviews by saying I am purposely taking a broad umbrella to the term dystopia. When it comes to reading enjoyable stories, I have used the term to help me find the type of stories that interest me. Though it is often quite clear that a book is not clearly dystopia, I still enjoy the book and was happy to be able to find it. Often times the opposite is true too. I find a book that a resent for not living up to its dystopian label. This is more about personal preference and personal bias than anything exceedingly concrete, but I am also opening over the month of Feburary to explore deeper the meaning of dystopian and what I want from a dystopian novel.
I hope you will considering sharing your dystopian reads with Lenore and myself this February. For a list of ideas here are the dystopian books Lenore has reviewed over the past few years. She has also posted a preview of what books she will be reviewing this upcoming month.
As for me, since finding a wonderful list of young adult dystopian titles, I have been slowly building my home dystopian library. Here are the majority of the books here on my dystopian shelf.
I have close to 150 books to choose from, plus quite a few on my Nook, and audiobooks from my library's digital collection. What dystopian books do you have on your TBR? I look forward to reading about the books YOU decide to read this dystopian February!
