Dystopia 2012

hosted by Book Ardour

Last year I found out about the world of dystopian books and I fell in love with them.  I read Wither, Matched, Across the Universe, and many others...I can't seem to get enough.  I thought I would try out this challenge for 2012 and work my way through more.  Hopefully hit Contagion Level with 15 books to read

•Running Dates: 1st of January – 31st of December 2012

•When Can I Sign Up: All the way up to the last two weeks of December 2012!
•Crossover Genres: Our Dystopia challenge also includes Post-Apocalypse and Ecotopia (environmentally dystopian).
