YA + The Apocalypse = Great Reading. But how many post-apocalyptic books have you read?
It can be a bit of a grey area, and some of these crossover into ‘dystopian’, but they started in catastrophe. The end of the world as we knew it. Kaboom. We reckon you’ll be surprised by how many of these titles there are out there, and also how many you still need to add to your TBR.
What are you waiting for? This is a matter of survival. Who knows how useful these works of fiction might be in real life when the zombie apocalypse comes. Or when the robots take over the world. Volcanoes. Fire. The sky is falling!
