Top Ten Tuesday

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is about “Top Ten Books With X Setting”. I’ve chosen X to be dystopian since I’ve been reading so much of those in the last years. Completely coincidentally the list contains 5 standalone stories and 5 books that mark the start of a series.


Animal Farm – George Orwell. Could also have gone for 1984 now that I think of it, but let’s shake it up a bit. 4 legs good, 2 legs bad!

Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood. This was the first book I read by Atwood and it blew me away. I hear it’s going to be a movie now… that’ll never end well.

Otopia – Per Nilsson. This was a recent read, and not as good as Svenne, but it’s dystopian and good enough!

Shades of Grey – Jasper Fforde. This is quite far from the Thursday Next series, but good! Sucks to be color blind. (Will also give you exclusively 50 shades of Grey hits in google unless you search by author’s name… you have been warned.)

Skyddsrummet Luxgatan – Jerker Virdborg. What if war came to Sweden? Claustrophobic feelings and thrilling story.


Feed – Mira Grant. Zombies! That’s all I’ll say.

Autumn – David Moody. Kind of zombies? But less brutal ones.

Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins. I’m sure you know this one.

Divergent – Veronica Roth. And this one too.

Metro 2033 – Dmitry Glukhovsky. After the big nuclear war, humans can’t live on the earth’s surface. Luckily (?) the Moscow metro was built to resist nuclear attacks.

    1. Apparently I heard it wrong – it’s going to be a series! Wikipedia says “Hulu announced in 2016 that they will produce a 10-episode series of the novel starring Elisabeth Moss as Offred. Margaret Atwood will serve as consulting producer.”

      So… maybe? Yeah, I know. The actors they picked for Divergent just don’t do it for me.
