With the glut of so-called dystopian fiction on the YA market lately, it’s clear that many publishers are throwing the label around willy-nilly, perhaps because it sounds better than “post-apocalyptic science fiction”, which is what most of these books really are. But what IS a dystopia, really?

Review Index

Here you can find links to all my reviews. If you are looking for a specific title or author, you can also type it into the Search field on the main page, though I can’t guarantee you won’t get a whole lot of other stuff come up too!

I know this looks like a lot of work, but actually I had fun putting it all together and learning some neat tricks along the way. These are the ways you can search this blog for all reviews written from 2006 onwards. Reviews written prior to April 2010 were transferred over from my old blog.

REVIEWS:

    Alphabetically by Author
    Alphabetically by Title
    By Genre
    By Country (Setting)


BY YEAR:

2006 | 2007 | 2008 | 2009 | 2010 | 2011 | 2012 | 2013 | 2014 | 2015 | 2016 | 2017

  • How about by ranking (star system or something of that ilk)?

    @Eclectic Indulgence, Ugh, you will keep prodding me for rankings! You know, I dropped the stars because I couldn’t find good graphics or a way to add them without getting a border, it got too fiddly. Besides, I think people tend to look at stars and not read reviews, and stars or whatever you use can never express how you felt about a book.

    I am going to do a list organising my books by original publication year, though!
