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
3 • More Than This, Patrick Ness
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.
