Frequently Used Words In Post-Apocalyptic Titles


These were just a few that I came up with – I know there are A LOT more the Post-Apocalyptic genre as a whole uses and over-uses, but I thought of the ones that are in almost every book I’ve read. Sure other words like zombie, virus, apocalypse, apocalyptic event, plane crash, EMP, CME, after the war are used a lot, but those really describe the books – the words and phrases listed aren’t always that way. 



Pitch Black



The day before

Dead Quiet


The lights went out…

…and never came back

Mad Max

Leaving the past behind

Big picture

We’re a family now



I’ve loved reading since I was little when my dad would read me Dr. Suess books. Fast-forward a little and I noticed that he was always reading on his lunch breaks at work, and I wondered why.Then, I found a book that took me to another place and time, to another feeling,another sense of “being”.It was the first book that I ever fell in love with, and I’ve been chasing that feeling ever since.
