Dystopien Wahhhhnsinn

Auf diese Dystopien freue ich mich so sehr, dass ich sie sogar auf englisch lesen werde!

What was once the western United States is now home to the Republic, a nation perpetually at war with its neighbors. Born into an elite family in one of the Republic's wealthiest districts, fifteen-year-old June is a prodigy being groomed for success in the Republic's highest military circles. Born into the slums, fifteen-year-old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. But his motives may not be as malicious as they seem.

From very different worlds, June and Day have no reason to cross paths - until the day June's brother, Metias, is murdered and Day becomes the prime suspect. Caught in the ultimate game of cat and mouse, Day is in a race for his family's survival, while June seeks to avenge Metias's death. But in a shocking turn of events, the two uncover the truth of what has really brought them together, and the sinister lengths their country will go to keep its secrets.

Vi knows the Rule: Girls don’t walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn…and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi’s future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.
But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they’re set on convincing Vi to become one of them….starting by brainwashed Zenn. Vi can’t leave Zenn in the Thinkers’ hands, but she’s wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous: everything Zenn’s not. Vi can’t quite trust Jag and can’t quite resist him, but she also can’t give up on Zenn.

This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.

As a modern gladiator's daughter, Lyn and her family live by the rules of the Gladiator Sports Association. But those rules can turn against you. When Lyn's seventh father dies in the ring, his opponent, Uber, captures Lyn's dowry bracelet--and her hand in marriage. To win her freedom, Lyn will do what no girl has done before: enter the arena and fight her father's murderer--even though she's falling in love with him.
In the violent country of Ludania, the language you speak determines what class you are, and there are harsh punishments if you forget your place—looking a member of a higher class in the eye can result in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina (Charlie for short) can understand all languages, a dangerous ability she’s been hiding her whole life. Her only place of release is the drug-filled underground club scene, where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. There, she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy who speaks a language she’s never heard, and her secret is almost exposed. Through a series of violent upheavals, it becomes clear that Charlie herself is the key to forcing out the oppressive power structure of her kingdom….

Nina Oberon's life is pretty normal: she hangs out with her best friend, Sandy, and their crew, goes to school, plays with her little sister, Dee. But Nina is 15. And like all girls she'll receive a Governing Council-ordered tattoo on her 16th birthday. XVI. Those three letters will be branded on her wrist, announcing to all the world-even the most predatory of men-that she is ready for sex. Considered easy prey by some, portrayed by the Media as sluts who ask for attacks, becoming a "sex-teen" is Nina's worst fear. That is, until right before her birthday, when Nina's mom is brutally attacked. With her dying breaths, she reveals to Nina a shocking truth about her past-one that destroys everything Nina thought she knew. Now, alone but for her sister, Nina must try to discover who she really is, all the while staying one step ahead of her mother's killer.
Und jetzt habe ich entdeckt!!!! Das Deutsche Buch!

Eine Zukunft, in der man mit sechzehn seine Unschuld verliert

Nichts fürchtet die in einer nahen Zukunft lebende Nina so sehr wie ihren sechzehnten Geburtstag. Obwohl die meisten Mädchen dieses Datum kaum erwarten können: Sie bekommen ein Tattoo und dürfen nun legal Sex haben. Doch Nina ahnt, dass mehr hinter diesem Tattoo steckt. Als kurz darauf ihre Mutter bei einem brutalen Anschlag ums Leben kommt, erfährt Nina: Ihre Mutter gehörte zum Widerstand – und ihr totgeglaubter Vater ist am Leben, irgendwo im Untergrund. Sie setzt alles daran, ihn zu finden – und gleichzeitig sich und ihre Halbschwester vor dem Zugriff des Regimes zu schützen. Da verliebt sie sich in Sal, einen Widerstandskämpfer. Doch kann sie ihm trauen?

Was für die Dystopien Challenge oder? Und ich glaube es gibt auch noch keins davon auf Deutsch! Die Meisten kommen sogar erst Nov. und Dez. raus. Dann heißt es lesen, lesen, lesen und schon mal den Weihnachtsmann schmieren :)
