  1. Dreams of God and Monsters sounds like a great series; one that I will have to read. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Dystopia is rising high! Hunger Games a definite win.

  3. I cannot wait for DREAMS OF GODS AND MONSTERS! I took part in a read-along on Goodreads - re-read the first book in the trilogy, then read the second one, so I am soooo ready for the third one. :)

  5. I've read books #1 and #6. I really enjoyed The Host, but I haven't seen the movie yet. Dreams of Gods and Monsters sounds amazing! And the cover is just stunning.

  6. I've developed a love for dystopian, so thanks for the list!

  7. I enjoyed reading your top ten Dystopians list. The Hunger Games would definitely be on my list and I would also include Nineteen Eighty Four, Brave New World, The Handmaid's Tale, Divergent and Delirium. I can't wait to read Dreams of Gods and Monsters. Daughter of Smoke and Bone is one of my favourite series ever.
