Dystopia Reading Challenge 2013

Hi, everyone! Time for a 2013 Reading Challenge!!

This challenge is being hosted by Ula at Blog of Erised!

Here are the details copied from Ula's blog:
Dystopia Reading Challenge 2013

We will try to read 24 Dystopian books in 2013 as the challenge goal, which means 2 per month, if you would like to read them monthly. You can of course make your own schedule. 2 per month is plenty because it still gives you time to explore and love books from other genres.

At the end of the year there will also be a giveaway with great prizes!


- The challenge will run from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013. Each month will have its own link form so you will be able to share your book reviews. You do not have to review the books you read to participate, but only those who read/reviewed at least one dystopian book will be able to participate in the giveaway (you can track your reading without the reviews with Goodreads, Shelfari etc.).

- Books that count in this challenge must include any form of post-apocalyptic theme (book sites like Goodreads are good sources of genre information). The books must be full-length.

- All formats allowed.

- Rereads allowed.

- It does not matter whether it's a series or a stand-alone book.

- If you are participating, grab the challenge button from below and post it on you blog. You can also make a post with the header (the code is also below). Please include the link back to this post so others will be able to participate as well.

- If you will participate, put the sign-up link to your blog post (about the challenge) or blog (for the button) directly into the linky below. Sign-ups will be open until December 20, 2013.

- You do not have to list your books in advance, go and do as you please. Read as many as you want (you can read more than 24!) and whenever you want, as long as you have fun!

- Info about the giveaway will be available in December 2013.


Level 1: Recruit (1 to 6 books)

Level 2: Rebel (7 to 12 books)

Level 3: Revolutionist (13 to 18 books)

Level 4: Leader (19+ books)

Each time you reach a new level, you will receive a badge.

If you would like to join me in the challenge, click on the challenge badge at the beginning of this post.

I love dystopia! I have read 12 dystopian novels so far this year, so I'm going to try to beat that next year!

I'm signing up for LEVEL 3: "REVOLUTIONIST" (read 13-18 dystopian novels).
