The Dystopia 2012 Challenge is being hosted by Bookish Ardour. You can sign up anytime through the last two weeks of December, and you don't have to be a blogger to join. Reviews are optional, but there is a review page set up for your reviews. There is a Must Reads page full of wonderful book suggestions to help you in your reading choices as well.
From the blog:
- Asocial– Choose 5 books to read
- Contagion – Choose 15 books to read
- Soldier – Choose 30 books to read
- Drone – Choose 50 books to read
- Conditioned – Choose 75 books to read
- Brainwashed – Choose anywhere between 76-135 books to read
- Totalitarian – Choose anywhere between 136-200 books to read
If you feel like that extra kick to your reading challenges here’s several you can choose from.
- World:Choose a country as your theme, reading only books from that country or where it’s the setting. For how high you go you can choose more than one country;
- Level Asocial to Soldier: Choose one country
- Level Soldier to Conditioned: Choose two countries
- Level Conditioned to end of Brainwashed: Choose three countries
- Level Totalitarian: Choose four countries.
- Gender Battle: Read books only by female or male authors. Another alternative is to read equal amounts of both.
Crossover Genres: Our Dystopia challenge also includes Post-Apocalypse and Ecotopia (environmentally dystopian).
