Is It Weird That I'm Fascinated With the World Ending?

So...I have a semi-secret obsession with the apocalypse!
I'm totally stoked to see 2012 and I loved movies like I am Legend, The Day After Tomorrow. I am obsessed with the TV show Supernatural, too.

Is it any wonder that I have been devouring books in the dystopia genre lately?
For example, here's the list of dystopia (post-apocalyptic) books that I've read in the last year or so:

1984 by George Orwell
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
Feed by M. T. Anderson (reread)
Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Gone by Michael Grant
How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary E. Pearson
The Dead and the Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer
The Declaration by Gemma Malley
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
The Sky Inside by Clare Dunkle
Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Whew...these are all I could think of right now, though I'm sure there are more, AND that's not counting the ones I've read before this past year. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to contemplate what would happen if the world was coming to an end! Would you survive?


  1. No I couldn't Not without out my books i read them to relax to. And Even when i'm bored my friends pick books or ask me if they should read it from the Libary. They ask that because I have read almost every book in the school's Libary because the isn't miny books. Thanks for readin' this comment.

  2. I hope that even if the world was ending, I'd be able to come across a book here or there so that I'd have something to cling to...otherwise, I might have to go and write some new ones!
