So with that mindset, I plan to read the older dystopian books that was also popular and making a hype back in The Hunger Games era. (Yeah that’s what I call it.)
I am a self-proclaimed dystopian lover and I want to do a blog where I could recommend or rank dystopian books. However, I am aware that the books that I have read is not even half of the popular books in this genre. So I did some research and picked 9 books that I planned to read. The books that I picked are the books that I have been hearing back in the days that I haven’t gotten around to. I list them down in a piece of paper and ranked them by their Goodreads rating. I am reading it from the lowest to the highest ranking books. In addition to that, I am only reading the first book in the series/trilogy and that will be the deciding factor if I will continue on with this series.
