2012 Challenge Post: Numero Uno

Okay guys, I'm sorry for this, but I will be creating a few posts about the different challenges I'm entering for 2012. I am going to try and compile some into a few different posts instead of creating a posts for each and every one of them. Let's just say I'm a tad bit addicted to entering book challenges.... Annyywayyy! Here is my first post! But keep in mind, these are just the list of books I hope to read during the challenges, but it may be subject to change. I may meet the goals of the challenges, but some of the books I may not read. If that makes sense.

2012 Dystopia Challenge
I love the Dystopian genre. It all started with the Uglies series, by Scott Westerfeld. Which I didn't exactly know that it was called a Dystopian genre book, but it's the earliest one in the genre I remember reading. After reading The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins, it REALLY got me into the genre. I would like to read more, which is why I'm participating in this awesome challenge this year. Here is a few of the books in the genre I'd like to read this year. I'm only going to name about 10.  I'm going to go with the Contagion level of 15 books.

  1. Love some of the books you have on your dystopia list! Daughter of Smoke and Bone was without a doubt my favorite book of 2011 (I actually cried when I read it... :), and Divergent and Matched are great too!

    I have the Chemical Garden series on my "to read" list as well - looks like we have similar tastes!
