Book #3 down

Finished Book #3, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, the 2nd book in The Hunger Games Trilogy.  It was by far my favorite book.  The Capitol is so twisted and the end was such a cliffhanger.  Thank goodness I was able to start reading Mockingjay immediately afterwards :)

I'm about 1/3 of the way through Mockingjay and I like it, but it is different from the the first two books.  Catching Fire is still my favorite at the moment.  I'm hoping to finish Mockingjay this weekend :)

With that said, can anyone recommend some dystopian-like novels, similar to The Hunger Games series?  I still need to add to my 50 book challenge list.  I currently have George Orwell's 1984 (I have never read it, how sad!), Lauren Oliver's Delirium, Veronica Roth's Divergent and LaHaye, Jenkins' Left Behind on my list.
