When was the last time I wrote a post about books? I hardly remember! I've read some books, more than 13 books last year and 5 books this year so far (I wanted to read more but I worked on my thesis so basically had no social life or me-time). 

So, I want to share some of my favourite dystopian books I've read. Hopefully, this post gives you inspiration on what to read next! 

The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood 
It feels impossible to finish this book, honestly. First of all, the assault and violence that describe in this book are just extremely hard to read. Second, so intense! If you watch the series, you're going to love how similar the series to the book is. I'm so glad the series do the book justice. 

Hujan - Tere Liye
This is the first Indonesian's YA novel that blew my mind away. I read it on one sitting! So beautifully crafted. Tere Liye is always my favourite author but specifically, this novel is pure gold! 

Unwind - Neal Shusterman 
I didn't know about this novel until I crossed on a youtube video which happened to a short movie based on this book called the same, Unwind. Honestly, as a short movie, that was pretty good as the book is really intense and pretty hard to imagine. I would love to see this book comes to the big screen, this is such an interesting story.

Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro 
This book is a story about every sense of the fragility of life: relationships and memories. I really like this book. At first, I wasn't sure if I want to continue after a few pages but I kinda wanted to know what was going to happen and I did not regret my choice to force myself finishing this book. Brilliant!

The Maze Runner Series - James Dashner 
Gosh, I hope you read the book before you watch the movie. The series is so great, I just found myself kept flipping through the pages. However, the movie was just nah. The first movie was pretty good, but then the second and then the third were just bad. 

Ender's Game - Orson Scott Card
Space travel and plot twist? Yes, please. That's it, I'm not going to describe or say anything, just read the book.

The Hunger Games Trilogy - Suzanne Collins 
WOW. Just WOW. If you haven't read the books yet, where have you been? I completely was blown away by how insane this trilogy was. To top it off, the movies, yes. Just everything that I've ever wanted from adaptation. 

Divergent Series - Veronica Roth 
I feel so bad about how disappointed the fans toward the movies. Well, so was I. This series is so interesting with all the choices and the conflicts and how this story makes you doubt yourself in a way, of course in a good way. Like at first you said, oh I'm such a divergent. Then, toward the end of the series, you were like, Crap, I'm a horrible person!

What's your favourite dystopian novel? 

Love, Vera
