Top Ten Tuesday (42) : Top Ten Futuristic Societies I Loved Reading About

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Brokeandbookish. This week’s theme is about the past and the future, and we can spin it however we like...Since I don’t read a lot of historical fiction,  I decided to go with Top Ten Futuristic Societies I loved reading about. They are chilling most of the time, and I wouldn’t WANT to actually live in those, but…I loved reading about them. Don’t forget to click on the title of the books to read their fabulous synopsis!

1 • Delirium, Lauren Oliver

A society where love is wrong, forbidden, as are any kinds of feelings? Well, hm…I love feelings. So obviously, I fell in love with that crazy concept, too.

2 • Awaken, Katie Kacvinsky 

A world where everything is done on the computer, on a much, scarier scale than now. That’s interesting, seeing how much we use technology nowadays…and kind of eye-opening, too!.


3 •  More Than This, Patrick Ness 

That book just gave me chills, and completely blew me away. No spoilers, just GO READ IT.

4 • Unremembered, Jessica Brody

In this crazy book series, science is really, really scary. No boundaries to what progress can do here. It’s half fascinating, and half terrifying to read that.

5 • The Golden Compass, Philip Pullman 

I have to say, Pullman created such a complex, fascinating world in his dark materials trilogy. It just seems so real, and it’s done with so many details, that’s impressive. And I want to know what my daemon would be, so badly.

6 • A Thousand Pieces of You, Claudia Gray

There are so many worlds in this book, it’s kind of weird to quote it, here? Is it futuristic, or from the past? A little bit of everything? I don’t know, but I put it there anyway because I loved it, especially the futuristic one.

7 • Uglies, Scott Westerfeld

I remember being completely amazed, the first time I read that book. Because, a world ruled by beauty, seemed so true, to me. And it still does. I think Scott Westerfeld created a compelling world that we all should read, and think about.

8 • Revived, Cat Patrick

What if you could die…and then re-live again? With the progress of science, crazy people created this kind of drug, and Daisy is one of the test subjects. Crazy? Yes. Intriguing? Yes. Insane? DEFINITELY.


9 • The Program, Suzanne Young

Okay, I love FEELS, and The Program definitely held plenty of those. Feelings are forbidden here, and you can’t cry, neither fall in love…or else. It’s a scary society once again, and it chills me to the bone to think about it.

10 • Free to Fall, Lauren Miller

Confession time: I HATE making decisions, so I guess this app-making decisions for me would be my solution? Hm, the idea was interesting, but the consequences of this were kind of crazy…I think I’ll pass. Once again a chilling world, but definitely worth a ride.

What are some chilling, fascinating worlds you loved reading about?! And what are some others you hated? Let me know in comments! 💬

  1. Great list! They’re all lovely choices. lol I love reading books set in a futuristic times but I would never want to live in it.
    I also like Article 5, Divergent series, Maze runner (first book) and Legend. Have you read any of these? 🙂

  2. Revived and Awaken are both going on my TBR! 🙂 It’s always interesting to find a new take on a futuristic world. Delirium, A Thousand Pieces of You, More Than This and Uglies were such good books!! I definitely plan to read The Program sometime as well, I’ve been hearing good things about it. ❤


  3. I haven’t read Delirium yet but I want to give that series a try despite the mixed reviews on it. Before I Fall is probably one of my favorite ya books of all time (though I’ve read it many years ago and can’t remember the details), and remembered enjoying Lauren Oliver’s writing style. And so many of these are on my TBR as well! Thanks for sharing this list, Marie!


  4. Sad to say I’ve only read two of these and I can’t even remember them haha! However, I do own The Program and Thousand Skies Above You and I’m very excited to read TSAY. It was actually on my Top Ten Tuesday too!
