Dystopia 2012 Challenge

With Dystopian Domination 2 around the corner, I’ve decided to commit. I’m going to participate in Dystopia 2012 Challenge, hosted by Bookish Ardour

If you’re interested, here are the details:
  • 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).
  • 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 or 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).
There are seven challenge levels:
1.      Asocial– Choose 5 books to read
2.      Contagion – Choose 15 books to read
3.      Soldier – Choose 30 books to read
4.      Drone – Choose 50 books to read
5.      Conditioned – Choose 75 books to read
6.      Brainwashed – Choose anywhere between 76-135 books to read
7.      Totalitarian – Choose anywhere between 136-200 books to read

And I’m choosing #3: Soldier Level. (I hope I can finish this – it’s really a challenge for me! 30 dystopian books? That’s 30% of the number of books I’ve read this year!)

  1. Wow, very impressive. I am participating in this one as well. I'm really excited.

  2. What a fun challenge, I love dystopian! If I wasn't so crazy busy right now I'd totally take part.

  3. Wow. I'm impressed. I signed up for this, but am only starting out at the lowest level haha!! I don't read a whole lot of dystopia anyway, but there are a few I want to read this year :)

  4. Looking at your list, I just found a bunch of new and upcoming dystopias to read...though it seems like the genre is getting overrun, and some of the plots just sound ridiculous.
