Between living on an island in the clouds and surviving when most of the world is dead, dystopia is still going strong. And not just dystopias – post apocalyptic fiction is right there too. Feast your eyes on these hot reads:
- The 100 by Kass Morgan
- Perfect Ruin by Lauren DeStefano
- Inhuman by Kat Falls
- Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis

Retellings are still one of my favorite book trends. The books below offer different perspectives from books and people we know and love (Mary Shelley, Sleeping Beauty).
- Across a Star-Swept Sea by Diana Peterfreund
- Hideous Love by Stephanie Hemphill
- Briar Rose by Jana Oliver
