Sometimes the Internet is Awesome!

I do love reading YA dystopian novels.  The Hunger Games and Divergent are probably the most well known books in the genre but may I also suggest The Dustlands series by Moira Young and The Hunt Trilogy by Andrew Fukuda.  Knowing my love for the genre, on our Facebook page, my friend Jack alerted us to this awesome twitter account. Dystopian YA Novel is a parody twitter account, telling a Dystopian YA novel one tweet at a time.  It’s kind of brilliant.  So far the author has already hit on several themes.  She has already established a heroine, Valentine, who sees herself as nothing special but obvisously is.  There is a love triangle.  A sorting of teenagers into groups that will determine where they belong or what they will do for the rest of their lives.  A threat of being ostracized if one does not conform and even a possible fight to death.  So far, I don’t think she has left anything out.  Here’s a sample.

Those are just the beginning.  If you’re on twitter and like me loved the The Hunger Games I suggest you follow because it’s great!. And if will indulge me in a little self promotion, follow us on Facebook, as well.  There’s been a lot of great conversations going on there that I don’t think you want to miss.

  1. Thanks for for the mention, Beth. The twitter account is a pretty clever way to both pay homage to and satirize the genre at the same time. It’s definitely worth following. I hope they do one for the noir genre.
