Listless Monday: Medical Dystopia Edition

Listless Monday was inspired by both Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity's feature Books by Theme and Court at Once Upon a Bookshelf's Listed feature. Be sure to check out their lists!

I am decidedly a fan of dystopian and futuristic books and I've noticed I really like those books that look at the future of medicine.  So here's a list today of some medical dystopian literature - those books with some kind of uniquely medical spin on the future, whether it's advanced procedures or a method of control, a deadly illness or a "cure" of some kind.

  1. I like these posts. It shows there really is trends that go around. ;)

    1. Ah, thanks. They don't seem very popular (the posts, not the books :)

  2. Definitely ORIGIN by Jessica Khoury. PARTIALS by Dan Wells might fit the category as well.

    1. I've added them. Why didn't I think of Partials? Silly me.
