Genesis by Bernard Beckett. It's a short read but I still find myself thinking about it.

Sometimes you'll only want results that include an exact phrase. In this case, simply put quotation marks around your search terms. E.g. "cool video games"
If your search term has more than one meaning (bass, for example, could refer to fishing or music) you can focus your search by putting a minus sign ("-") in front of words related to the meaning you want to avoid. For example, here's how you'd find pages about bass-heavy lakes, but not bass-heavy music: bass -music

The Forest of Hands and Teeth. (Carrie Ryan)
First Dystopian novel I every read, and it's still one of my favorites. Probably my introduction into the zombie world, and I loved every bit of it.
I'm in the middle of Legend (Mary Lou) at the moment. I love it so far, but haven't had time to finish it.
The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins). Love the books. A little mad at the movie. If you can't tell me who Madge Undersee is, read the books.
The rest of that list sounds good. I've heard good things about Divergent, Delirium and the Maze Runner, but I might check out a few of the others as well.

I don't know if it counts but the Gone series by Michael Grant is pretty good, not really dystopian though...
I also really like the Unwind series, there wasn't really a global war that destroyed the world unless you count a law that was passed that did a lot of stuff to change the world.
The Eve series is also really good, it shows what could happen if the world was destroyed and they had to find a way to repopulate it.
Partials and the sequel are really good is you like android like creatures.
I have some other books but most of them are about people put in dystopian like scenarios like the gone series.
There was also a book that won an award called Rash and it was a really good read.

I loved the Matched trilogy by Allie Condie, and of course The Hunger Games as well! I'm really looking forward to reading the Divergent series though! But in all actuality, my favorite dystopian books of all time are 1984 and Brave New World. They're just really well done and still well read many years after their publication!

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons is a great dystopian novel! I don't think anyone's mentioned that one yet :)
Water Wars by Cameron Stracher is another good one. I haven't read it yet, but my sister LOVED it, and she is so picky! Pickier than me!

The Hunger Games is definitely one of the best.
The Maze Runner trilogy is probably pretty close up there with it, because it was just plain incredible.
Scored was a short read, but it was really good.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer was amazing, although I have yet to read the sequel to it.
Those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head that I have read, though there are a lot on my TBR list.

Article 5 is really good. Reboot is my favorite of the year so far. The Testing and Legend are also pretty good.
I definitely recommend Reboot by Amy Tintera.
