Petra – A Book about a Child, but not for Children

Posted Posted in Books, Dystopian Books

Petra is unique in the apocalyptic genre, in that it details the apocalyptic events of a future society set on a distant planet.

Posted Posted in Board Games, Tabletop

As a Tabletop Geek, the best place to source unique and often high-quality games is Kickstarter.

7 Affordable Zombie Apocalypse Vehicles

Posted Posted in Gear, Prepper

In any emergency, you need to be able to depend on your car. Whether to transport you to safety, shield you from zombies, or help you gather more supplies. It won’t be with you forever since you probably don’t have an unlimited fuel source(gasoline lasts 3-5 months, 1-2 years at most with a fuel stabiliser). All those times people sourced fuel on TV years after production stopped? Lies. Regardless, your car will be essential to […]

Posted Posted in Books, Dystopian Books, Sci-Fi Books

For some inscrutable reason, I delight in books where teenagers go to class. The Atlantis Grail feeds this hunger of mine, while serving up a delicious platter of “go to class to learn how to not die”. Best of all, the nickname given to the main character is superhero gold.   “Listen to her!” Laronda picks up. “She is Shoelace Girl!”   The Atlantis Grail is an epic read, crossing different genres. It is a […]

7 Best Dystopian Novel Series

Posted Posted in Books, Dystopian Books

I realised that I had become a dystopian novel addict after The Hunger Games. I’d read His Dark Materials a few years back, and was waiting on my sister to pass me Extras from the Uglies series when I decided to pick it up. Afterwards, my google searches consisted of “you’ve finished the hunger games, now what?” That hunger has yet to wane. So here’s my list of the 7 best Dystopian novel series out there right now.
