Six top series for fans of "The Hunger Games"

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Joel Cunningham tagged six great young adult book series for fans of The Hunger Games, including:
The Giver Quartet, by Lois Lowry (The Giver, Gathering Blue, Messenger, Son): The grandfather of modern YA dystopian lit offers a gentler take on the story of oppressive governments controlling your every thought and deed. The Giver, published 20 years ago, is a classic for a reason, the heart-rending story of a boy forced to choose between the world he knows and the freedom he realizes has been stolen from him. The first two sequels are only loosely connected, but the final book, 2012’s Son, brings all the story threads together.
