Top Ten Tuesday: Books in a Post Apocalyptic Setting

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given and weeks topic is:  Top Ten: Books in a Post-Apocalyptic Setting I love the post-apocalytpic genre, and I doubt I will ever tire of it.  The perfect post-apocalyptic story, for me, will have the following sequences:1) People going about their normal lives.2) Rumors, news of something that’s NOT QUITE RIGHT.  Fear builds.3) The threat is identified (Zombies!
