Hello and Welcome to my first ever Book Traveling Thursday! BTT is a weekly meme where you select a book based on that week’s theme, and showcase the different covers of that book. I think its a great way to get to know fellow members in the bookish community and talk books!
To learn more about BTT, visit the BTT Goodreads Group.
I have a huge thing for apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, dystopian worlds. Everytime I read one of these novels, I can’t help but wonder how it would be to live in such a world.
With that being said, the book world I would want to live in is Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer.
That’s a pretty simple cover – one thing I love about the book.
Miranda’s disbelief turns to fear in a split second when a meteor knocks the moon closer to the earth. How should her family prepare for the future when worldwide tsunamis wipe out the coasts, earthquakes rock the continents, and volcanic ash blocks out the sun? As summer turns to Arctic winter, Miranda, her two brothers, and their mother retreat to the unexpected safe haven of their sunroom, where they subsist on stockpiled food and limited water in the warmth of a wood-burning stove.
Told in journal entries, this is the heart-pounding story of Miranda’s struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all–hope–in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world.
They look amazing, right?! God, how I love those creepy, cold moons in all these covers.
I don’t think there is anything more to be said about the world in which the book is set in: Meteors, Destruction of Earth, Woohoo! Count me in! (And no, I am NOT suicidal. A meteor merely hit my head. That’s all)
Which book world would you like to live in?
