Wednesday Wishlist #17

This weeks wishlist is all about unusual dystopia:

The Archived - Victoria Schwab
The archive is a place where the dead are stored, and our protagonist is the keeper of those dead, tasked with keeping from waking up and from getting out. But someone is deliberately altering these archives. Time is limited and our main character must figure out who it is before the archive its-self crumbles. Sounds awesome and like something you can easily get caught up in.

Hungry - H.A. Swain
In the future, there is no need for food, people take medication to keep themselves going, until one day they start to feel hungry. What would happen in a world where there is no longer any food to keep the people alive? One girl sets out to find real food with a boy from a resistance set on bringing food back. This one sounds very interesting, and I wonder how this world works.

Mirror X - Karri Thompson
A girl wakes up in a hospital 1000 years into the future to find the world ravaged. A plague has wiped out most of the population and it turns out she can trust no-one. The reason she has been revived is so that she can give them something, but what that is.. I'll have to find out. I am so intrigued to know why and how these people woke up this particular girl, and why everything seems to familiar to her. 

The Vault of Dreamers - Caragh M. O'Brien
I can't even describe this properly, so here's the blurb from Goodreads: The Forge School is the most prestigious arts school in the country. The secret to its success:  every moment of the students' lives is televised as part of the insanely popular Forge Show, and the students' schedule includes twelve hours of induced sleep meant to enhance creativity. But when first year student Rosie Sinclair skips her sleeping pill, she discovers there is something off about Forge. In fact, she suspects that there are sinister things going on deep below the reaches of the cameras in the school. What's worse is, she starts to notice that the edges of her consciousness do not feel quite right. And soon, she unearths the ghastly secret that the Forge School is hiding - and what it truly means to dream there.
