Dystopian/Post-Apocalyptic Review Index

Yet again, I am inspired by Lenore Appelhans. I considered making a page on my blog for these, but I like her idea for posting a list on a post and just updating it and linking to it. Woo! I’m including all of the books that I’ve seen labeled dystopias, but I’ll mark the ones that I don’t think felt particularly dystopian.

Of course, I’ve read more than just these, but these are all of the dystopian/post-apocalyptic novels that I’ve read since I started blogging in August 2010.

    Um … er … SAY … if you need anyone to dust your book shelves, while you are GONE, I’d happily volunteer heh heh ;D

      Well, I really don’t own all that many, so my bookshelves wouldn’t be THIS helpful. I’ve probably got thirty or forty in my personal collection. Which does sound like a lot actually. Haha.
