Genre Roundup: Dystopian

Is your favorite genre dystopian? We have tons of books about worlds we most likely wouldn’t want to live in filled with characters we wouldn’t mind living with. Check them out:

In the Age of Love and ChocolateIn the Age of Love and Chocolate by Gabrielle Zevin

If you like your dystopian with a lot of contemporary elements and even more chocolate, then In the Age of Love and Chocolate by Gabrielle Zevin is for you. Make sure you don’t miss All These Things I’ve Done and Because It Is My Blood, the first two books in the Birthright series.

All These Things I’ve Done, the first novel in the Birthright series, introduced us to timeless heroine Anya Balanchine, a plucky sixteen year old with the heart of a girl and the responsibilities of a grown woman. Now eighteen, life has been more bitter than sweet for Anya. She has lost her parents and her grandmother, and has spent the better part of her high school years in trouble with the law. Perhaps hardest of all, her decision to open a nightclub with her old nemesis Charles Delacroix has cost Anya her relationship with Win.

Still, it is Anya’s nature to soldier on. She puts the loss of Win behind her and focuses on her work. Against the odds, the nightclub becomes an enormous success, and Anya feels like she is on her way and that nothing will ever go wrong for her again. But after a terrible misjudgment leaves Anya fighting for her life, she is forced to reckon with her choices and to let people help her for the first time in her life.


The CompoundThe Compound by S.A. Bodeen

Are you looking for a little creepy in your dystopian? The Compound and its sequel, The Fallout, are the books for you.

Eli and his family have lived in the underground Compound for six years. The world they knew is gone, and they’ve become accustomed to their new life. Accustomed, but not happy. No amount of luxury can stifle the dull routine of living in the same place, with only his two sisters, only his father and mother, doing the same thing day after day after day. As problems with their carefully planned existence threaten to destroy their sanctuary—and their sanity—Eli can’t help but wonder if he’d rather take his chances outside. Eli’s father built the Compound to keep them safe. But are they safe—really?


CrewelCrewel by Gennifer Albin

We have two dystopian titles available for download for only $2.99 this month, and one of them is Crewel by Gennifer Albin. Altered, the second book in the Crewel World series, is also available.

Deadly Secrets. Tangled Lies. Woven truths.

Incapable. Awkward. Artless. That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: She wants to fail. Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen to work the looms is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to manipulate the very fabric of reality. But if controlling what people eat, where they live, and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested.

Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and used her hidden talent for a moment. Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her dad’s jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape.

Because tonight, they’ll come for her.


EnclaveEnclave by Ann Aguirre

Enclave by Ann Aguirre is available for download for only $2.99 right now! If you love it, you can finish the series with Outpost and Horde right away.

New York City has been decimated by war and plague, and most of civilization has migrated to underground enclaves, where life expectancy is no more than the early 20′s. When Deuce turns 15, she takes on her role as a Huntress, and is paired with Fade, a teenage Hunter who lived Topside as a young boy. When she and Fade discover that the neighboring enclave has been decimated by the tunnel monsters—or Freaks—who seem to be growing more organized, the elders refuse to listen to warnings. And when Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, the girl born in darkness must survive in daylight—guided by Fade’s long-ago memories—in the ruins of a city whose population has dwindled to a few dangerous gangs.

Ann Aguirre’s thrilling young adult novel is the story of two young people in an apocalyptic world–facing dangers, and feelings, unlike any they’ve ever known.


The Rule of ThreeThe Rule of Three by Eric Walters

Are those books not enough for you? Don’t worry; we’ve got more coming your way! The Rule of Three is available on 1/21/14!

A person can last 3 minutes without air, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food. A community begins to die in just seconds.

One shocking afternoon, computers around the globe shut down in a viral catastrophe. At sixteen-year-old Adam Daley’s high school, the problem first seems to be a typical electrical outage, until students discover that cell phones are down, municipal utilities are failing, and a few computer-free cars like Adam’s are the only vehicles that function. Driving home, Adam encounters a storm tide of anger and fear as the region becomes paralyzed. Soon—as resources dwindle, crises mount, and chaos descends—he will see his suburban neighborhood band together for protection. And Adam will understand that having a police captain for a mother and a retired government spy living next door are not just the facts of his life but the keys to his survival.

Welcome to the all-too-possible nightmare of The Rule of Three—a breakout adventure story from acclaimed Canadian author Eric Walters.
