Silos and Shelters

I like to think of myself as a "prepper." If there were ever an environmental, nuclear, or heaven forbid, a zombie apocalypse, the hubby and I would be prepared...but you can never research enough. Perhaps this is why I'm partial to post-apocalyptic stories! 

Here's what I've read this week:

Second Shift: Order by Hugh Howey. If you haven't read the bestselling WOOL series, you have missed out and you should go buy it now. For those that have and have been waiting for Second Shift, it's already out! I think I may love the Shift books (prequels) more than Wool! I just love the how's and the why's of it all. I talk about these books so much, my husband has no idea why I keep talking about silos and whether or not we'd be able to take our pug with us should we be forced to go into one. 

And this week, one of my readers recommended the Project ELE series by Rebecca Gober and Courtney Nuckels. I read the first book in the series, Project ELE, and immediately downloaded and read the second book, Finding ELE, the same night! You can't beat a post-apocaliptic story that includes love, powers, and FEMA. And the best part is, Project ELE (book 1) is currently FREE! 

So that's my reading "already read" pile for this past week! I hope you'll take a chance (if you haven't already) on some of these great reads! Remember, you can't ever be too prepared for the future! 

I doubt I'll be posting anything until after the holiday this week, so with that, have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING


  1. I started Wool a while back, but I just had to stop when Juliette's story started out with her doing cleaning. I was so upset and disappointed that I had to stop reading. It was right when I was reading "The Fault in Our Stars" and I just couldn't take another depressing story. Maybe I'll pick it up some day when I can handle it. :) I already got The First Shift, so I should probably finish it soon. LOL

    1. You stopped reading? I won't give any spoilers, but you should pick it up right where you left off! You'll be surprised :) xx
