Welcome to my stop in the Summer Wrap-up Read-a-Thon! The readathon goes from August 4-12; my stop is on the 9th. Sign up here and check out participating stops here. Anyway, this is taking place in the midst of Dystopian August, so, of course, I have a dystopian challenge. I've got several other awesome giveaways going on so make sure you check that out before you leave!
What I'm giving away: A dystopia of your choice ($15 US or less) to be shipped from TBD or Fishpond (if you live in Australia), so it's INTERNATIONAL! Comments enter you until the read-a-thon ends. I'll pick a winner on the thirteenth. Keep in mind that you can still sign up!
Today's challenge is inspired by one of those suggestions, Diana Peterfreund's For Darkness Shows the Stars. FDStS is a dystopian retelling of Jane Austen's Persuasion. I want you to leave a comment , telling me what classic novel you would like to see turned into a dystopian or post-apocalyptic novel. If you have some serious thought on why and how, I'll give you an extra point for entertaining me!
That's it! Have fun with it! Silly answers are acceptable too!
Example: I would love Pride & Prejudice with zombies. Wait a minute, you're probably thinking, that's already been done! I know. Unfortunately. I want it done right. A real post-apocalyptic zombie world with world building and real thought put into it. Modernizing would probably work best.
Comment Details: Make sure you leave your email or Twitter name so I can contact you if you win. Also, let me know what name you signed up for the Read-a-Thon with, so I can verify that you're entered!
