Books to read if you enjoyed ‘The Hunger Games’

Hey everyone! So (although this is unrelated) I’d like to mention that I’m no longer doing my ‘Top Monthly Reads’ posts, because I’ve decided that I don’t read enough books in a month to pick the top three. In replacement, I will be doing them by season. Speaking of which, I wanted to add, Happy Autumn (as shown in the picture above :)). Anyways, let’s jump into this post!

Legend (Marie Lu's Legend Series #1)

  1. Legend undoubtedly comes first and foremost! This novel is based on a corrupted government, making it extremely similar to the The Hunger Games.

2. The Selection: It is nearly identical. Well, substitute action with drama, and then this is completely true. Let’s just compare the details here:

The Similarities:

  • Teenage girls who love and protect their little sisters to the ends of the earth
  • Help feed their families
  • Don’t want to leave their sisters when forced to join a competition hosted by their governments
  • Assume they won’t be chosen since there is about a million-billion other people entering the competition
  • Get picked of course
  • Go to the competition against their own will
  • I could go much, much, farther but then there would be spoilers…

3. Matched: I wasn’t particularly a huge fan of this novel, but many people really enjoyed this, so I’ve decided to throw this on the list. There isn’t a whole lot in common with these two novels, but they slightly remind me of each other because they are both about a girl who doesn’t agree with the way that her government works, and wants to change it.

Shatter Me (Shatter Me Series #1)

4. Shatter Me: Yes, I know, I may or may not be in the middle of this book currently, but I already know that it fits in with the Hunger Games.  It is about a girl who is forced to work with the leader, or better known as the enemy, of a dystopian nation, because they want to use her as their weapon.

Red Queen (Red Queen Series #1)

5. Red Queen: This is a little more on the fantasy side, compared to The Hunger Games, but besides that, they have quite a bit in common, considering they are both poor girls who soon unexpectedly become the face of a new rebellion against the rulers of their country.

The 5th Wave (Fifth Wave Series #1)

6. The Fifth Wave: This novel is based upon a girl named Cassie who must survive out on her own, after the unknown take over the world she once knew. She is very similar to Katniss, because they both have a strong will to survive for not just theirselves, but for others.
