Book Links: Holy crap, there are a lot more dystopian books than I thought!

Came across a link in my blog reader this morning: Half a Century of English-Language YA Dystopias. They're organized by decade from the '60s to today. I love the explosion of books that happened in the first decade of the 21st century. She even has a bibliography of nonfiction works that address YA dystopias!

I consider myself to have read a lot of dystopian novels, but I have barely scratched the surface of that list. Which is simultaneously disappointing (really? Despite all of my efforts I've really only read a fraction?) and inspiring (a challenge to read more!)

If there wasn't so much awesome stuff coming out constantly, I would want to take a month and do nothing but catch up on this list. Maybe if I still had spring break or a summer vacation I would do that.

To complete this week of impromptu dystopian discussion, I'm going to have a review of Incarceron up later today!

And the funny thing is dystopian isn't even a recognized word. But we use it all the time to describe these novels!
