September: Dystopian Themed Reading Month

For the month of September I will be reading and reviewing specifically dystopian literature!

It’s worth noting – I do have several reviews of other books waiting that I want to post, as I want to keep this record of new books I have read updated, so there may be other posts going up as well. Each post specific to my Dystopian theme for the month will be marked as such, and I have made a category specifically for the relevant posts to be collected in.

This evening I have been getting through the last part of The strange and beautiful sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton, and the next thing I pick up will be within my theme!

So, here are some books I might look at reading this month, in the spirit of a good dysptopia (there’s an oxymoron for you). I highly doubt I will get through all of these, so if you have any recommendations for ones I should prioritise, let me know in comments! I’ve got a mix of adult and YA fiction in here, quite a range of authors and lengths, so I’m interested to see what I enjoy most once I dive into them.
