Top Ten Books in X Setting

Top 10 Tuesday is a post hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and this week's topic is Top Ten Books in X Setting.

I've always said I wasn't very good at posts like these. I know this is more of a genre than a setting, but I'm going with Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic. (In order of date read reverse order.)

    1) Partials (Fragments) by Dan Wells
    2) This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
    3) The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
    4) The Immortal Rules (The Eternity Cure) by Julie Kagawa

    5) Under the Never Sky (Through the Ever Night) by Veronica Rossi
    6) The Maze Runner by James Dashner
    7) Deadlocked (Deadlocked 2) by AR Wise
    8) Divergent (Insurgent) by Veronica Roth

    9) The Hunger Games (Catching Fire, Mockingjay) by Suzanne Collins
    10) The Forest of Hands and Teeth (The Dead-Tossed Waves, The Dark and Hollow Places) by Carrie Ryan

What are you favorite books in any particular setting? Let me know!


  1. I've only read three books of your list so far, but I like dystopian books. Great list!

    Nice list! I've read most of them, although I still need to get to THE 5TH WAVE and the Kagawa series. So many dystopians, so little time ...


  3. We kind of did the same topic, though some of the books on your list I haven't read but I may have to check out.

    My TTT

  4. Great list! I loved the Hunger Games so much. I still have yet to read Through the Ever Night & Insurgent, even though I loved the first books :D.

    I really to need to read Veronica Roth's books!

  6. Oh I LOVED The 5th Wave! So good. But yeah, so many so little time. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Oh goodie. Going to check out your TTT next! Thanks for stopping by!

  8. Yes, I really need to re-read The Hunger Games. And yes please read Through the Ever Night ASAP! :) Thanks so much for stopping by!

  9. Yeah you do! Good books. I liked Divergent better than Insurgent, but I can't wait to see how the series ends!

  10. I love Divergent and The Hunger Games! Great list!

    My TTT:


  11. I loved the Hunger Games, but wasn't a big fan of The Forest of Hands and Teeth.

    My TTT.

  12. This would be the list of place I wouldn't ever want to actually visit! :D Good books, scary worlds.

  13. I have read The Hunger Games (all 3) and 5th Wave (chapter sampler only).
    I have Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi just have to read it after the review books

  14. I've read 4 of those and enjoyed them, dystopian/post-apocalyptic being a guilty pleasure of mine. Thanks for sharing all of these!

  15. Haven't read one of these, but should probably try them out! The covers and titles look great. Can you recommend a dystopian book for a beginner? :D

  16. I had a hard time coming up with something this week. :/

    Haha, and again I haven't read any of these. I'm not very into this genre, but everyone's always talking about these series. Maybe it's about time I start them... I just hate when I read one, and it doesn't live up to my expectations.

    Here's my TTT: http://theravenreaders.blogspot.com/2013/08/top-ten-tuesday-19.html

  17. I really liked The Forest of Hands and Teeth, but The Dead-Tossed Waves was even better IMO. Sorry you didn't love it! Thanks for stopping by!

  18. Yeah, I'm not sure I'd want to actually visit any of these worlds either. Thanks Alyssaz!

  19. Oh you have to read The 5th Wave and Under the Never Sky ASAP! You won't regret it!

  20. Yes, I tend to like these genres too! Thanks for stopping by!

  21. Oh boy...well I guess it would really depend on your reading preferences. The Hunger Games and Divergent are both just really good YA books that have great dystopian worlds. Also Under the Never Sky. These are just really good books. Under the Never Sky has a fantasy/paranormal aspect to it. This is Not a Test, The 5th Wave, and The Forest of Hands and Teeth are great apocalyptic books. Two are zombie related. The 5th Wave has aliens, but it's so much better than I expected. Any of these would be good starting places. You'll have to keep me posted if you read any of these.

  22. Yeah, I'm not good with the Top Ten Books with X....whatever. I definitely understand not wanting to waste the time reading a book that you're not fully interested in, but I also think that you never know if you'll like it until you try it. So if you just haven't really tried these genres then I do recommend giving it a try. If you have and didn't enjoy it, then that's cool too. Maybe go into them with low expectations so you're not let down. :) That's what I do sometimes. Thanks for stopping by!
