Ten titles to read after "The Handmaid's Tale"

At the Waterstones blog Martha Greengrass tagged ten books for readers "enthralled by Margaret Atwood's haunting dystopian vision in The Handmaid's Tale," including:
Gather the Daughters
Jennie Melamed

A frighteningly believable dystopian vision, Jennie Melamed’s debut imagines a world where resources are scarce, lives short and women’s fertility a valuable commodity. Before they are bound into a life of marriage and breeding four girls are offered one summer of freedom. With it comes a truth, a discovery that could bring their island world to its knees.
Read about another book on the list.
