Michelle's List updated

1. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
3. 1984 by George Orwell
4. Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick
5. Uglies by Scott Westerfield
6. The Road by Cormac McCarthy
7. Jennifer Government by Max Barry
8. We by Yevgeny Zamyatin

I think this challenge came about just at the right time for me. As you can see from my list, I'm in the mood for dystopian literature! Apart from the three books on my list I haven't yet gotten around to reading (I own 1984 which is why I keep putting it off, I've just renewed Oryx and Crake from the library, and I'm having a hard time getting a copy of Uglies) I've also taken out from the library The Day of the Triffids and Feed. Based on earlier reviews, I'm trying to get copies of the Lois Lowry books as well as possibly giving Cloud Atlas another chance. Will I finish all these books before November? Possibly. I hope so. I'll keep you posted.

I just bought a copy of Uglies last week. It wasn't on my list, but the reviews I've read have sparked an interest.

There are 6 or 7 copies of Uglies in our high school library, so I took one for the summer. The series must be popular. Wish I could lend you one!

You should have The Handmaiden's Tale on that list!!
