The Hunger Games... of course.
Divergent (I haven't actually read it, but I've heard it's good).
The Maze Runner.
Um... The Giver. A classic.

I'd like to recommend the Among the Hidden series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. First dystopia I ever got into.
There's also The Last Book in the Universe, The Girl Who Owned a City, and the Mortal Engines series.

Oh yeah, Among the Hidden is good.

If you haven't read the hunger games, read them before the movie corrupts your image of Cinna

Yeah, I'm planning on the Hunger Games, and I've read the Giver (pretty good). 
And Unwind... a friend of mine is reading that. Maybe... idk, it kinda creeps me out. But maybe.
Thx for the ideas guys!
