Top ten books to read now you've finished "The Hunger Games"

At the Guardian Sian Cain tagged ten top books to read now you've finished The Hunger Games, including:
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

In an alternate Japan, 42 children are sent to a deserted island to fight to the death as part of The Program, a military project to control the population with fear. There are no rules, except one person must die every 24 hours or everyone will be killed.

As a caution: this is a lot more gorey than The Hunger Games and we only recommend it to discerning readers with strong stomachs. For graphic novel fans, Battle Royale is also a manga series (which manages to be both pretty and exceptionally bloody – again, only for older young adults).
