This weeks question:
Pick a book in your favourite genre that you'd recommend to a reluctant reader.




My favourite genre is dystopian, and there are so many different books and series within that genre that I love. So it's really hard to pick one, but I have to go with the series that first got me into that genre. The Hunger Games, it's amazing and I don't see how you can not love that series. Katniss is such a strong female lead and I just love her. Plus it has the added bonus of having adaptations that don't suck, in fact, they are kind of amazing.




Plus these too:


The Declaration by Gemma Malley
Divergent by Veronica Roth (avoid Allegiant like it's the plague)
Legend by Marie Lu
Matched by Ally Condie


I'm well behind on dystopian and have loads of new series that I still need to start. If you have any great recommendations then I would love to hear them.

  2. Oh, The Hunger Games also introduced me to the genre. In fact, it was the book that started my whole book obsession! :)

  3. I haven't heard of The Declaration, I may have to check that one out. Loved Hunger Games, Matched, Divergent, and Legend. I would recommend Under the Never Sky, Article 5, Partials, Delirium, Mystic City, Pledge, Never Fade, and Enclave. So many good ones! ~Pam

    1. I have to admit to not enjoying Partials, not sure why as I was positive that I would love it! I'll be reading Article 5, Delirium and Under the Never Sky soon and I'm hoping I love them all :)

  4. I've read THG, Matched and Divergent. So far, out these three series, I only loved THG. For me, Matched and Divergent started strong then lost their firepower during books 2 and 3.

    Thanks for sharing! Old follower.

    1. I do agree, I enjoyed Matched and Divergent the most - I hated Allegiant!

  8. The Hunger Games is a great choice. My husband isn't a big reader, but he gobbled this series up!
