Welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about those scary dystopian societies I’d rather not live in, thank you very much.

However, I noticed while making this list that most of these books or series are already rather old. As in, there are not many releases of the last 1-2 years. Is the time of dystopia kind of over, or am I just not reading as much dystopia anymore as I used to?

Either way, this makes today’s post both a fun trip through memory lane and a scary trip to futures I hope we’ll never see become real.

But for the sake of this list, I dug deep and tried to be brutally honest with myself and came up with a few books I’ll probably never re-read. (but hey, never say never!):

Hi everybody, and welcome to a new Top Ten Tuesday!

Today is all about book titles. I can imagine that coming up with a great, unique title for a book is one of the hardest things out there. Because, no matter how much I love those titles with kings, queens, princes or princesses in them, they’re not exactly inspired either. But once in a while, there are books out there where the title alone draws you in. No matter the cover or the content. Sometimes that bookish love at first sight happens purely based on the title.

That’s what happened with me and the following books!
