  1. havent read many of these books but have almost all of them on my TBR :)
    Here is mine

  2. I loved Tris. Katniess and Peeta are definitely intriguing characters. I still need to read most of these, but I also loved Guy. It took me a second to remember him, but yeah great character.

    The rest all come from books I'm still dying to read.

    Great list and thanks for sharing.

  3. I had Katniss, Peeta and Tris on my list too. I think most who chose dystopian probably will have Katniss or Tris at least.
    Check out my TTT

  4. Never Let Me Go is a movie I want to watch. I know! Why not read the book, but I just want to watch the movie. ;)
    It just looks that damn good.

  5. I love your list! Jonas and Guy Montag are two of my favorite characters but they seem to get forgotten in the dystopian lists.

  6. Awww I love Peeta! Great list. New follower via GFC. Here's my TTT

  7. Good list! I am glad to see some books/characters on here that are not just the mainstream (Giver, Handmaid's Tale, Ready Player One)

  8. Katniss, Peeta, Tris, Guy, WOW. I love this list! These are some of my favorite characters as well, although they weren't on my list. (I had a different genre.) But if I had done Dystopian, they would have been there, promise! :)

    Again, love this list!
