I first read Hunger Games several years ago (long enough that I had to wait a year for book #2, Catching Fire, to be released), and I was hooked. I've read lots of dystopian fiction since then. I thought I'd share a couple favorites. We've also got a read-alike list in the library's catalog if you are looking for some suggestions.
Here are some standouts if you are looking for a series after Hunger Games or while you wait for one of the books:
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner - finished it last night and am now anxiously awaiting The Scorch Trials (out October 12)
- Life as We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
- Gone by Michael Grant - I read book three this summer and was suprised the series stayed fresh and took some interesting turns
- The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - I'm anxiously awaiting book three
