Welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday, brought to you by the masterminds over at The Broke and the Bookish!
This week, we’re picking book recommendations for people who liked a certain book, and while I’m sure my choice is going to be popular, I’m doing it anyway because when I finished this book, I could have used a list like this. Don’t get me wrong — this list exists, all over the Internet, and I’m sure many more versions are going to pop up today. But the ones I found led me wrong. They suggested books I didn’t like. So I’m making my own.
Warning: I’m going to genre-hop a bit.
Top Ten Books for People Who Like The Hunger Games Series…
…for the Action
The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
…for the Dystopian Setting
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
…for the Action AND the Dystopian Setting
Divergent by Veronica Roth

…for the Strong Heroine
The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson
Defiance by C.J. Redwine
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
…for the Plot
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami
[Disclaimer: I have not read this book, but I hear the plot is very similar to Hunger Games. I’ve also read interviews with Suzanne Collins where she said she didn’t know this book existed prior to her writing HG, and I believe her. Sometimes people just have similar ideas. It’s happened to me. It could happen to you. But I also think this list would be incomplete if it didn’t include the book that Hunger Games is most often compared to.]
Happy reading everyone!
