Top 25 YA Fantasy/Dystopian Books of All Time

Fantasy/Dystopian

Scroll for list

Young Adult Fantasy/Dystopian books are my all time favorites — I must have read close to two hundred over the past seven years.

However, I need to warn you that I have never read Twilight or Harry Potter, so they will not be included in this list and I cannot attest to whether or not they are better or worse than any of these books.
