Saturday Recs-June 9th

Going through Hunger Games withdrawel? Just finished the trilogy and itching for more books like it to read? Here are my recs for books to read if you're a Hunger Games fan.

If you like Hunger Games, try these:

1984 by George Orwell-Call this one the granddaddy of dystopias. Many of the todays YA dystopians draw influence from it, including HG. Though personally I think the guys in charge in this book make the Capitol look like wimps.
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess-Oh what's that? You thought HG was mind-trippy? Heh, you ain't seen nothing yet.
A Handmaiden's Tale by Margeret Atwood-AKA the book that Wither is trying to be but fails.
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami-There is no denying it: HG definitely got some influence from this book/movie. Though I don't like saying it's a rip-off because Hunger Games goes in a completely different direction then Battle Royale.
The Hunger Games Companion-All HG fans please read this. Especially those of you who constantly whine about the way Mockingjay ended. Read the explanations of things in here and then I dare you to come back and logically try and tell me Mockingjay sucked.
