Dystopian Reading Challange 2013

So after not very much consideration I have decided that I am going to challenge my love of Dystopian and take part in Blog of Erised’s Dystopian Reading Challenge 2013. The aim of the challenge is to try and read 24 dystopian novels between 1st January 2013 and 31 December 2013 although there are different levels and badges are gained as you reach each one.

Level 1Recruit (1 to 6 books)
Level 2Rebel (7 to 12 books)
Level 3Revolutionist (13 to 18 books)
Level 4Leader (19+ books)
I am hoping that I can reach LEADER and maybe even the 24 book goal as I have plenty of dystopian books on my to-read list and I am hoping to re-read some of my favourite series as new books and films are released.
As with all challenges there are a few rules set by the host;
  • The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. Each month will have its own link form so you will be able to share your book reviews. You do not have to review the books you read to participate, but only those who read/reviewed at least one dystopian book will be able to participate in the giveaway (you can track your reading without the reviews with Goodreads, Shelfari etc.).
  • Books that count in this challenge must include any form of post-apocalyptic theme (book sites like Goodreads are good sources of genre information). The books must be full-length.
  • All formats allowed.
  • Rereads allowed.
  •  It does not matter whether it’s a series or a stand-alone book.
  •  If you are participating, grab the challenge button from below and post it on you blog. You can also make a post with the header (the code is also below). Please include the link back to this post so others will be able to participate as well.
  • If you will participate, put the sign-up link to your blog post (about the challenge) or blog (for the button) directly into the linky below. Sign-ups will be open until December 20, 2013.
  • You do not have to list your books in advance, go and do as you please. Read as many as you want (you can read more than 24!) and whenever you want, as long as you have fun!
  • Info about the giveaway will be available in December 2013.

If you want to join in you can sign up here where you will also find a list of some of the dystopian novels you could read for the challenge.

I can’ t wait to get started on this challenge and I will add to this page links to the posts of the books I have read as I review them. So far I have a rough idea of the books I want to get through for the challenge. There are a lot of next books in series coming out and even a few films so I am going to re-read whole series. This means a lot of them so far on my idea’s list are re-reads but you can’t beat a great dystopian novel.
