Genre Definition & Recommendation #34

Genre Definition and Recommendation is a feature where I will define a genre and a sub-genre definition and the make some recommendations.  

Science Fiction - Definition found on Wikipedia

Science Fiction- is a genre of fiction dealing with imaginary but more or less plausible (or at least non-supernatural) content such as future settings, futuristic science and technology, space travel, aliens, and paranormal abilities. 

Post- Apocalyptic 
Definition found on Wikipedia 

Post-apocalyptic fiction is set in a world or civilization after such a disaster. The time frame may be immediately after the catastrophe, focusing on the travails or psychology of survivors, or considerably later, often including the theme that the existence of pre-catastrophe civilization has been forgotten (or mythologized). Post-apocalyptic stories often take place in anagrarian, non-technological future world, or a world where only scattered elements of technology remain.

My Recommendations:

Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days, #1)Angelfall by Susan Ee



It's been six weeks since angels of the apocalypse descended to demolish the modern world. Street gangs rule the day while fear and superstition rule the night. When warrior angels fly away with a helpless little girl, her seventeen-year-old sister Penryn will do anything to get her back.

Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.

Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.

Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels' stronghold in San Francisco where she'll risk everything to rescue her sister and he'll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.

Eden's Root
Eden's Root By Rachel E. Fisher



The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional.

What Do you Recommend?


  1. Ooh I loooved Angelfall! I'm so excited that the sequel is FINALLY coming out I have been waiting for it for ages it seems! I haven't read Eden's Root but I remember seeing a lot of great reviews for it a while back!

  2. I have been trying to get my library to carry the Angelfall book for a while. It sounds really good. I have Eden's Root, but haven't had a chance to read it yet, it sounds good too. :)

  3. I've heard so much about Angelfall, I definitely need to read it! I hope this recommendation will nudge me in the right direction! :)
