#FutureImperfect #StarTrekSummerMay

I‘ve read about a number of imperfect futures that I seriously hope don‘t come true. I started with the YA series, like The Hunger Games, Divergent, and The Uglies, but later I started reading a few adult dystopian novels. Many of them frighten me! But I continue reading them.

BarbaraBB Great collage! I enjoy reading dystopian novels a lot. Which I am surprised of myself, since I don‘t like SF, fantasy and YA. What is your favorite? 2mo
Cinfhen Same @BarbaraBB !!!! Have you read 2mo

Megabooks @BarbaraBB Station Eleven is my all-time favorite book ever!!! I was going on a feminist theme, so I excluded it. Of the more recent three in the collage Red Clocks is my fav, especially with the recent law in Georgia! 2mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen We‘re #booktwins again 💕! I have read Station Eleven but not the midlife. Will stack immediately! Some favorites of mine are 2mo
Moodyreader The handmaid‘s tale DEVASTATED me 2mo
BarbaraBB Oh and 2mo
Megabooks I‘ve never read @Cinfhen Unnamed Midwife or Never Let Me Go. #stacked! (edited) 2mo
BarbaraBB @Megabooks i haven‘t read The Red Clocks yet but I do have a copy so I‘ll definitely read it soon! 2mo
Megabooks I‘m stacking The Fahrenheit Twins! Thanks @BarbaraBB !! 2mo
Megabooks @Moodyreader Right?!? 2mo
Moodyreader It took me ages to read it because i couldn‘t read much at a time 2mo
Cinfhen Really liked Red Clocks @BarbaraBB I think you will as well. I‘m stacking both of your other suggestions. I‘ve read Never Let Me Go but I didn‘t love it. 2mo
Cinfhen I‘ll be checking back later for more suggestions... great post, Meg 🙌🏻‼️ 2mo
QueenJen I haven't read this yet, but I felt exactly the same way about Parable of the Sower (trilogy) by Octavia Butler. Y'all, there's a "make America great again" speech in it! 2mo
Megabooks @QueenJen wow! I haven‘t read it so I didn‘t know that! 2mo

Last read 2018: Strange the Dreamer. Over a month of bored, skimming text just to finish
First read 2019: Broke my "no paper books in bed" rule and stayed up way too late on a work night because I HAD to finish.
Same author, two very different reads. I think this year is looking up already!
Thanks @erickaa for the awsome #sss book!
@InBooksILive if the rest of your list is as good as this, we might be #booktwins

InBooksILive @FantasyChick yay! I'm so glad you loved it as much as me! I definitely think we have a booktwins future! 😁 6mo

Reviewsbylola This kind of annoys me—is it that hard to find a different picture?! 10mo
lynneamch @Mccall0113 I saw Kali speak at an event at Dragonfly Books in Decorah, Iowa. She said when she discovered her publisher had selected a stock photo that had already been used, she wasn't happy. But, thought it could work to her advantage as Rae was a popular, more well-known author. Rae's book was recommended to me by my fave author of 10mo
