YA Survival Books
In the time of a pandemic, something about immersing yourself in the world of a post-apocalyptic world hits different. When I used to read these types of books, I enjoyed them because they threw me into a world that felt so removed from my own - I could join these brave protagonists as they fought tooth and nail for survival, but come back to my own, safe, world when things felt a little too real. When I think about these stories now, post-COVID, I wonder how long I would actually last. The good thing is that whether you’re reading about zombie apocalypses, deadly pandemics, environmental atrophy, or a tyrannical government, there are always tips and tricks to glean from these characters and their adventures. Stock up on YA dystopian novels and stack up knowledge to live and survive! - ASMA
