    Oh but I just got so excited I forgot to answer the Rafflecopter question – my favorite dystopian book is Divergent but for a series overall, the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu is flawless. Plus I really liked The Young World by Chris Weitz.

    I haven’t read anything from Patrick Ness but I will next month since More Than This is on my August TBR pile. I totally can’t wait!!! EEEP. And my favorite YA dystopian novel would be The Hunger Games!!! <3

  • Sarah C.

    This is probably a rather cliche answer, but The Hunger Games is my favorite dystopian novel/series and actually one of my favorite series in all categories. It also got me started on reading YA.
    I have never read anything by Patrick Ness, but these books sound quite interesting and I would love a chance to win them! Thanks!

  • Samantha

    My favorite is that oldie but goodie, The Giver. A lot of recent dystopian fiction has really disappointed me with its excessive focus on romance and angst, unfortunately, and I always return to Lois Lowry’s masterpiece for an model of world-building, characterization, and moral conundrums. I haven’t read Patrick Ness’s Chaos Walking series yet, but I recently loved his amazing The Monster Calls (I cried three times).

    Ness is brilliant! I’ve only read the first book from my library and since they dont have the other 2 books and the other stores aren’t in stock, I’m dying to know what happens in The Ask! :3

    Thanks for the givaway! ^_^

  • Sarah K.
    July 26, 2014 at 7:48 am

    I’ve never read an ending of a dystopian series that I have actually liked so I tend to stay clear of dystopian, but I’ve heard good things about this series so maybe it will be my favorite dystopian.

  • Katy
    July 26, 2014 at 7:49 am

    My Favorite YA is Pretties, Uglies, Specials, Extras series by Scott Westerfield. Deals with big image issues of being a teenager

    So sad it’s not available for UK residents! πŸ™
    But then again, I’ve read them all, LOVED them all, and own a copy of More Than This! So I’m possibly not the person who needs persuading that Ness is the most awesome YA author ever!

  • Tammy
    July 26, 2014 at 8:56 am

    My favorite YA dystopian is probably whatever the last one I finished and really enjoyed which in this case is The Young World by Chris Weitz.

  • Katie M
    July 26, 2014 at 9:34 am

  • Laura Hartman
    July 26, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    Hunger Games is the first that comes to mind, Divergent is on my list of “to reads”. Now Patrick Ness’ books are going on my Goodreads shelf also!

  • Ruby
    July 26, 2014 at 1:03 pm

    My favorite dystopian novels (because I can’t choose just one) are The Giver, Lord of the Flies, and The Handmaid’s Tale.

  • Christine
    July 26, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    Favorite YA dystopian novel? Such a hard one! I might have to go with The Giver, which had the one of the largest impacts on my childhood. I’m a huge fan of the heartbreaking realism of Shipbreaker as well.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  • Matthew
    July 26, 2014 at 1:28 pm

    It’s hard to pick my favorite YA dytopian of all time — I’d have to go back and reread the ones I loved in high school… But my favorite of the recent crop is probably still the Hunger Games.

  • Valerie
    July 26, 2014 at 1:48 pm

    Not necessarily my favorite, but I really liked In the After. I haven’t read the sequel yet though.

  • Christopher
    July 26, 2014 at 1:58 pm

    This is pretty awesome. Patrick Ness is my favorite author. Favorite dystopian would easily be Chaos Walking (…well, possibly More Than This), though in the interest of getting more book recommendations out there Fahrenheit 451 is very poetic and poignant, especially (but of course not only) for book-lovers.

  • jennie t
    July 26, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    This is a tricky question but I think my favorite dystopian YA novel is Ship Breaker. Ness is high on my list of authors I want to read.

    I haven’t read anything by Patrick Ness yet, but he’s perpetually on my to-read list! As for my favorite YA dystopian novel…I haven’t read much dystopian YA beyond the gateway drugs of The Hunger Games and Divergent (much preferred the former to the latter), but I really liked Moira Young’s Blood Red Road, which was kind of…post-apocalyptic agrarian dust bowl western dystopia? XD

  • Cassy

    Actually, Ness’s Chaos Walking is a favorite of mine already. But I also really enjoy Scott Westerfeld’s Uglies series. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • Liat
    July 27, 2014 at 2:48 am

    I don’t think I read any YA dystopian novel other than the Hunger Games (or maybe I just don’t remember. It’s not my favorite genre).

  • Nichole
    July 27, 2014 at 9:38 am

    I enjoy reading YA novels. I have really enjoyed the Divergent Series by Veronica Roth and Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I would love to read a new series since I am between books right now.

  • Mindy Dai
    July 27, 2014 at 11:35 am

    Hate dystopian. The recent offerings are just way to cliche for my taste. The closest I’ve liked something was the Incarnate series.

    The Hunger Games

    The Chaos Walking trilogy is actually in my all time favourites – I’d love to own copies. The new ones are so pretty!

    The Legend series by Marie Lu is pretty great, and I loved All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill as well.

    Have to go with The Giver — it blew my mind the first time I read it in middle school, and has stuck with me ever since.

  • Kristin
    July 27, 2014 at 10:23 pm

    Individual book, definitely The Giver. Series, probably the Uglies. Can’t wait to try these books!

    July 28, 2014 at 7:10 am

    Too question…recently read a pretty good one called Paradigm by Ceri Lowe. But from what my good friend keeps telling me, this one is going to take over as a favorite IMMEDIATELY.

  • Katrina

    Hmm, Chaos Walking, Hunger Games, Smoke & Bone: all three are anti-war dystopian, so I’m going to have to mention all three as my faves. Young people decreasing conflict is apparently my jam.

  • Jen D.
    July 28, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    My favorite dystopian is probably Divergent, Legend, or The Darkest Minds.

  • Charlee

    The Hunger Games, Divergent, the Razorland Trilogy by Ann Aguire, and the uglies!

  • Shae McDaniel
    July 28, 2014 at 10:14 pm

    Oooh, awesome giveaway! Thanks!

    Favorite dystopian… hmmmm… Is it too lame to go with the classic Hunger Games answer? Because those were great. I’d also say the Never Sky trilogy as well, though I’m not sure if that’s really dystopian or just sci-fi/post-apoc.

  • Angie
    July 28, 2014 at 10:16 pm

    Been DYING to read these books. Heard such amazing things.

    My favorite dystopian is probably Unwind by Neal Shusterman.

  • Sadie-Ann
    July 28, 2014 at 11:28 pm

    I’m going to have to go with the not very original answer of The Giver (although I also love Legend for YA). Probably because it was the first real dystopian I read. (My adult favorite is Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde)

  • Nona
    July 29, 2014 at 12:23 am

    I did love the Chaos Walking books quite a lot and More Than This was also wonderful.

    Beyond those I really like Blood Red Road, but haven’t read the rest in that series.

  • Sabrina
    July 29, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    I liked The Fifth Wave quite a bit; it was something different than a lot of the other recent dystopians I’ve read.

    Thanks so much for hosting this giveaway! I’m really excited to give Ness’ books a try.
    As for your question, I’m going to be really boring and predictable and say The Hunger Games. I still think that YA dystopians published use it as a means of comparison, and for good reason. It reinvigorated familiarity of the genre and it just a well-done series in its own right.

  • Jennifer @ A Librarian's Library
    July 29, 2014 at 8:36 pm

    My favorite YA dystopia would probably be Partials by Dan Wells. I just really enjoyed that trilogy a lot. I have been wanting to pick up Ness’s The Knife of Never Letting Go for a really long time, so I would love to have the whole trilogy!

  • Mara
    July 29, 2014 at 10:25 pm

    Well besides The Hunger Games…. probably Susan Ee’s Penryn & The End of the Days series, with Angelfall and World After currently out right now.
