    Here are some good dystopian themed books like Matched and Uglies. I won't mention Hunger Games, because you probably already read it or chose not to.

    Across the Universe by Beth Revis - When 17-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo on a spaceship, she expects to be thawed 300 years later upon arrival at a new planet. However, her world turns upside down when she is awakened fifty years too early and finds herself embroiled in the mystery surrounding the attempted murders of frozen passengers.

    Blood Red Road (Dustlands) by Moira Young – In a post-apocalyptic future, 18-year-old Saba’s twin brother is stolen by black-clad riders.

    Delirium by Lauren Oliver – In the tightly controlled society of a future America, love is forbidden, classified as ‘deliria’ by authorities.

As love blossoms between the two, Lena questions what she has always been told about love, and begins to consider not submitting to the cure.

    Divergent by Veronica Roth – In a future dystopian Chicago, each 16-year old must choose to belong one of five factions, each of which represents a dominant personality trait. For most the choice is easy – simply follow the results an aptitude test. For Beatrice, however, the choice is not simple. What she decides promises to put her in danger, and possibly tilt the entire balance of society.

    Enclave by Ann Aguirre – In a shattered, post-apocalyptic world, 15-year old Deuce’s dream has come true. She has been named a Huntress, trusted by her community to brave the world outside of the sheltering tunnels and the threat of monstrous Freaks to bring meet to the tribe.

When the fence is breached, Mary flees the village with a small band of survivors.

    Incarceron by Catherine Fisher – Incarceron is a prison so vast that it is self-sustaining. Generations of prisoners are born inside, doomed to a life in prison. The novel weaves two story lines: that of 17-year old Finn, who hopes to become only the second person to break out of the prison, and Claudia, the warden's daughter who hopes to escape an arranged marriage.

    Maze Runner by James Dashner - When Thomas arrives in the Glade, he remembers nothing but his name, just like the dozens of other teen boys who arrived before him. The Glade, which is surrounded by an impenetrable maze, is closed at night to guard against the creatures that roam the darkness, but open for exploration during the day. How will they escape?

    Shipbreaker by Paolo Bacigalupi – In a near future of rising seas, no oil, and extreme poverty, a teenager works as a shipbreaker - one who salvages rusting ships for parts.

    It's not fiction, but I recommend What Einstein Told His Barber by Robert L. Wolke. It's a real breeze to get through and you might even learn a thing or too about some interesting topics.

    Source(s): I picked it up and spent the next 4 hours unable to stop reading it. It was that much fun.

    Les Misérables by Victor Hugo. It's fabulous. It's literary, but a great work.

    Anything from Kelley Armstrong. She is an incredible writer. One of my most favorite one in her large collection is "Bitten." Yes, this one is of a werewolf, but its far from the cliché crap. I love her syntax and the story lines.
