Booklist: End of the World

Here’s a new book list: THE END OF THE WORLD

It includes books where the world as we know it has already ended (and there is a dystopian new world order) or books where the world is coming to an end (like Life As We Knew It)

Who knew the end of the world could be such compelling reading?


Gone by Michael Grant (the first book in his six book planned series.  The second book in the series, Hunger, is also out.)




Feed by M.T. Anderson




The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The sequel, Catching Fire, was released in September. Collins has plans for a third book to be released in 2010.



City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau. There are four books in her Books of Ember series.  The fourth, Diamond of Darkhold, was released at the end of August.



Uglies by Scott Westerfeld




Life As We Knew It and its sequel, Dead and Gone, by Susan Beth Pfeffer




Fever, 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson




House of Scorpion by Nancy Farmer




Farenheit 415 by Ray Bradbury





The Compound by S.A. Boden (which is, coincidentally, a 2009 Isinglass book)
