Dystopian YA Recommendations

For those who asked for YA dystopian recommendations, there are so many I love, but here are a few of my favorites that are available now.  I know I’m forgetting some of my faves because I can barely remember my name most days, so I will add to this list as I remember.

* I have tried to stick to the sub-genre of science-fiction we call “dystopian.”  There are lots of novels & GNs that cross over between sci-fi/fantasy/post-apocalyptic/dystopian, so consider this a list that does not include tradition sci-fi or fantasy.
