I hope everyone has been reading lots! Today is the last day in Bout of Books and time to wrap up and finish all the books! To give you a break between all the reading here is a challenge for you to complete about 5 books you would want with you as the end of the world is coming! Here is the scenario! I hope you enjoy the challenge!
It is 11:00 PM on a Sunday night. You are laying in bed thinking about all of the things you must do the next day. Tasks of the coming days consume your thoughts and while your mind is somewhere else you are caught off guard by a flash in the sky that is followed by a large wailing screech that pierces the air and shatters your bedroom window. Slowly you move to the window and what you see catches your breathe and causes you to stumble back a few steps. The aliens (at least you think they are aliens) have began to enter the city and destroy everything that is in their path. Through the window your view is consumed with destruction, screaming people and large flames that are dancing across the city at a fast pace. You notice that the creatures are heading in your direction and you realize you probably have about fifteen minutes before they reach your home. That means you have only about ten minutes to gather your belongings and escape before you are caught in the attack from the aliens invading the city.
Given the short amount of time you are only able to take 5 books with you. What books would you pick to take with you as you escape and prepare for the end of the world. Would you choose books that would help you survive in the post-apocalyptic world ,books for pleasure that would make you happy and take you to a fantasy reality or books that you can’t live without?
♠ War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells – I feel like this book covers a very similar situation and could possible provide me with the knowledge to survive!
♠ The Adventure of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll- This is one of my all time favorite books and just makes me happy. I feel like I would need this to keep my mind off of what is happening in the world and be able to take me to another reality, even if its just for a little bit. Also my edition of this book is the Barnes and Noble Collectors Ed. and it is huge! So maybe I would be able to use it as a weapon.
♠ World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks- To remind me that life could be worse and there could be flesh eating zombies infesting and attacking the world.
♠ Under the Dome by Stephen King- I haven’t read this book, but I figured I would need something that was new to me and give me something to take my mind off the impending doom of the world. Also this is another book in which the characters are placed in a unwanted situation and would remind me of the other situations I could be in.
♠ White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout- This is a fantastic book and has swoon worthy guys and is just so wonderful. It would me make happy and thinking of the good instead of the bad.
Please let me know what you think of this challenge and link or comment about your list below! I would love to hear about what books (and why) everyone else would choose!
