Top 5 Survival Reads

My main character in In the After, Amy is a reader, and she loves The Complete Works of William Shakespeare and classics, books about history and the past. She would never read sci-fi, especially after They, the blood-thirsty creatures that have taken over the planet, appear. I, on the other hand, love sci-fi, especially post-apocalyptic and dystopian. Here are a few of my favorite dystopian/survival stories.

1.The Giverby Lois Lowry

Buy it from Amazon

One of the first dystopian books I ever read, the story of The Giver stayed with me long after the last page. It addresses so many issues about human nature and personal freedom. It’s definitely an inspiration for In the After.
 

2.Divergent by Veronica Roth

Buy it from Amazon

This recent YA post-apocalyptic addition is fun to read, as well as fast-paced and action-packed. Roth creates a world that seems at first to be well-ordered and then pulls the rug out from under you with plot twists and character revelations. If you’ve never read sci-fi, this would be a great book to start off with-you can be like the Dauntless and jump in with both feet!

3.The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

Buy it from Amazon

Though this is meant as a novel for adults, I read this book when I was twelve and it’s so subtle, I didn’t really recognize it as dystopian. Margret Atwood is amazing at crafting a believable future world, and draws on aspects of our own society to make hers all the more frightening.
 

4.Z for Zachariah by Robert C. O’Brien

Buy it from Amazon

Another inspiration for In the After, this book shows a young girl alone after a nuclear holocaust. She must learn to survive on her family farm with no companionship or help. When a stranger arrives, she again must change her world view to accommodate another. The character development in this book is fantastic-a definite read for any YA post-apocalyptic fan.
 

5.The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Buy it from Amazon

This book is absolutely terrifying and highlights the danger of people themselves in the apocalypse. McCarthy also creates a never-ending scenario, always continuing down the road with no end in sight. I can think of nothing more heart-wrenching than characters surviving for survivals sake, with no hope of a better tomorrow.
