2012 Dystopia Challenge

I didn't think I'd like these types of books but after reading Ashfall I loved it, I want to read more. I know I'm already signed up for a lot of challenges but I really couldn't pass this one up. I love books! 
The Deets: 
  • Running Date: January 1st- December 31st 2012
  • When Can I Sign Up: All the way up to the last two weeks of December!
  • Crossover Genres: Our Dystopia challenge also includes Post-Apocalypse and Ecotopia  (environmentally dystopian).
  • Mr Linky: To use the Mr Linky you'll need to click on the graphic then enter your link. These will be updated and posted into this page every couple of weeks of so.
  • Further Details: Crossover challenges are fine, you can change levels at any time, this is eBook, short story, and graphic novel friendly, and you don't need a blog to join in (read further for details).
The How To
1. Choose You'r Level: These are listed further down and you can change levels at any time.
2. Grab The Badge: Place it somewhere on you'r blog, profile, or in a signature where possible and link back (main page or this page, it's up to you).
3. Sign Up Post: Create a post on you'r blog, in a group, or on a forum (only if allowed) to let others see what you're aiming for (a predefined list of books is optional).
4. Link Up: Grab the direct URL to your sign up post, not you'r blog, click the Mr Linky graphic and enter the link!
5. Blogless? Don't worry, you can sign up with you'r social network profile (YouTube, Twitter, GoodReads, Shelfari included), just make sure you link to your review list, shelf tweet, or category. If you don't have any of those feel free to comment!
1. Your Reviews: Reviewing is optional! But if you do a review we'd love for you to share them by submitting them on the Review Page
2. Finished: When you're done it's completion post time and you can share these on the Completion Post page

Wow, that is a really great list of dystopian picks! I might have to step it up a level, just to read those :)
