Em finally looks up, blushing. "Sorry, sorry. I know--I'm becoming 'that girl'... I'll stop. It's just that I really--"-Pg. 64 of an ARC of "Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters" by Meredith Zeitlin
"Miss James!" we chant in unison.
Em flushes an even brighter red than before.
I'm a little less than halfway now and I must say, this book is very cute. I'm definitely enjoy it!

Top Ten YA Dystopian Novels
2) Divergent by Veronica Roth- Roth builds a very unique world with complex characters that you can't help falling in love with. There is something for everyone in this dystopian.
3) Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- Beautiful, distinct writing and an X-Man concept combine to bring this amazing dystopian to life. With heart pounding moments of suspense and even hotter moments of romance, this is one awesome book!
4) Matched by Ally Condie- For me, this is a quieter dystopian. There isn't all out war but it feels like the world is just on the cusp of it. Plus, I loved the powerful imagery associated with each character!
5) Eve by Anna Carey- Eve paints a terrifying picture of earth were illness befell everyone and all that is left are those that survived. Houses are in ruin, food is scarce and kids are being mined for manual labor or a life of birthing a new generation. The landscape alone in this novel was absolutely terrifying.
6) Wither by Lauren DeStefano- This book addresses the question-- what would you do if you only lived till 21 or 25? The old generation is dying out thanks to a disease. The new generation are ticking times bombs. And their time is up at 21. The characters risk everything for a chance to live their short life their way.
7) The Way We Fall by Megan Crewe- This dystopian reads just like a zombie flick without the zombies. You catch a cold that turns you into a loving human being, then turns you mad and two days later, you are dead. Watching these characters try to survive as the virus spreads is terrifying and exciting.
I'm sure I've read a few more to add to the list but these are the titles that jumped out at me from my shelves. What made your Top Ten this week?
