I wonder if there are some new (or more or less new) dystopian novels with interesting use of lexicon or some kind of newspeak. Like in classic “Brave New World” or “1984”. I know that “Shades of Grey” has amazing use of language but it doesn’t really suits my goals anymore OTL  

I’m not even interested in the book itself but I AM interested in language and words. Searching is very difficult :(  

Maybe? Please? No? Ok.

“I think we ought to live happily ever after,” and she thought he meant it. Sophie knew that living happily ever after with Howl would be a good deal more hair-raising than any storybook made it sound, though she was determined to try. “It should be hair-raising,” added Howl.

“And you’ll exploit me,” Sophie said.

“And then you’ll cut up all my suits to teach me.”

Now I really do want more of No. 6!
Also, the society and the city reminds me of “The Status Civilization” by Robert Sheckley. Hopefully, we will get some nice dystopian anime.
Relationships between main characters are also delightful, not in the “ship” sense.
