The World Ends on Wednesday #5 - But I Forgot

I was going to do a post about cross-genre's for this week's World Ends on Wednesday.  But then I got distracted, and now, on Tuesday evening I realise I have nothing prepared.


So I'm going to be quick and dirty and give you a random selection from my 5-star PA reads of the last three years that I haven't featured before:

Afterlight by Alex Scarrow

Published: 2010

Pages: 455 (paperback)

The second book in the Last Light series this is the story of 'what if we ran out of oil', which is a scarily possible scenario.  Whilst the first book focused more on the actual breakdown of society, Afterlight is more focused on a group of survivors trying to create a long-term home on one of the safest places I've ever read about - an oil rig.  When warring factions come together, the outcome is going to be messy....




OK next week I promise I will have something more prepared, but I can certainly recommend the Last Light series (2 books), which I randomly stumbled upon but loved!

  1. Good grief...someone has read Afterlight! Over here in the UK both books seem to have sunk without a trace. No one's heard of them, let alone read them.

    Well, thank you Kat for reading and mentioning them. They're two books I'm glad I wrote. A lot of things I needed to get off my chest in those two.

    all the best

    1. Thanks Alex - I really enjoyed both books and in fact they are one of the first post-apocalyptic books I ever read, so I can blame you for my obsession in part!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
