Books for a Post-Apocalyptic Book Club

by Donna Huber


My post-apocalyptic book club met this week to decide on the books we would read over the next 11 months. We usually only meet 10 times in a year, but we had so many (more than 40) books suggested that we decided we would meet in January. Below are the books we will be reading. We are meeting in a hybrid format (both in-person and Zoom), so if you want to join us for one or all the discussions, you can get the details on the After the End Book Club page at the library.

Strong Women in Fiction

by Susan Roberts


The definition of Women's Fiction is that it embraces themes that revolve around the home, family, and community. Often, women’s fiction asks that characters overcome staggering real-life challenges.  I think that one of the most important parts of this genre is that it tells the reader stories about strong women who have learned how to use their strength for the success of their families and friends and, in some cases, for the betterment of the world.

I have reviews of six books that feature strong women - two are historical fiction, one is a thriller and the other three are books about families.

Seven-year-old Huxley is growing up in the London suburbs, and there are many tensions present around him. With no friends and no understanding of Brexit or the gangs targeting isolated residents, all he sees is that an elderly neighbor lives alone. Huxley is sure that Leonard is as lonely as he is, and hopes that they can become friends.

The Forest of Vanishing Stars by Kristin Harmel ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts


"Jerusza had known, from the moment she first saw the light over Berlin, that the child was to be called Yona which meant 'dove' in Hebrew.  She had known it even before she saw the girl's birthmark which hadn't faded with time but had grown stronger, darker, a sign that this child was special, that she was fated for something great." (p 6)

The Apocalypse Seven by Gene Doucette ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


I met Gene Doucette at a conference the first year or so that I was blogging (I was working for an indie press at the time) and he convinced me to read his book Immortal even though it didn't seem like my kind of book. Well, I loved it. It was different and I enjoyed Doucette's writing style. So when I saw he had a new book coming out I was excited. That it was post-apocalyptic was even better because I need a book I can recommend to my book club. The Apocalypse Seven was probably the book I was most disappointed that I didn't get to read in May so as soon as I had room in my schedule I squeezed it in.

3 New Science Fiction Stories for Summer

by MK French


Have you been gazing at the stars this summer and dreaming of other worlds? A great thing about science fiction, it allows us to explore worlds that may be so different from our own that it is alien - even when it is set in a place similar to earth. Today, I have a novel and two short stories that come out this month that will transport to new worlds.
