Top Ten Tuesday: Frequently Used Words In Post-Apocalyptic Titles

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. 


Deserted

Cacophony

Pitch Black

Bug-Out

Survivalist

The day before

Dead Quiet

SHTF

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.
