IMM: Week of Dystopia

I didn't specifically plan to get so much dystopia from the library this week, but I guess since that's my favourite genre, it just kind of happened. I also got a couple books that are slight twists on normal dystopia, such as The Dead Tossed Waves which is more of a post-apocalyptic, and Leviathan which seems to be an alternate past story... but we'll see. Still, lots of great action novels which I can't wait to read.

I FINALLY got to read this wonderful book last week. It moved a little slower than I would have hoped, but the characterization was wonderful. Review coming soon.

I'm half way through this right now and it's better than the first one but I'm still don't really like the characters that much. I'll see how it goes. Probably three stars. 

I'm not exactly sure why I ordered this one because I thought it was a MG fantasy, but I just learned that it's actually a YA dystopia, so I'm really excited to read it now. 

I've been eager to read this book ever since I heard it was a book about abortion in a dystopian world. I'm interested to see how he handles such a tough subject.

I just realized how weird it is to be reading this right after Unwind, but it will be interested to get two very different treatments of the subject of organ donors. 

I have read the Pretties series yet, but I've heard that they were pretty good, so I'm looking forward to this other series. It looks like alternate history, sort of steampunk, so it should be good.

And that's what I got in my mailbox this week! I'm pretty excited about all these reads, so it's too bad that I have a really busy weekend with my final exam on Monday, so I won't have much time to read. 

Over to you... what did you get in your mailbox this week? Have you read any of these books, or are they on your TBR pile? I'd love to hear your thoughts.


  1. I hope you enjoy your books, especially Incarceron! I love that book to death, but a lot of people hate it. I love how it mixes dystopia with steampunk. I've been wanting to read Unwind for a while, too. Hopefully it's good! I'm very pro-life, so I'm curious to see how the subject is handled.

  2. I'm probably one of very few that haven't read Wither yet.

    Happy reading!
