    "The Hunger Games is a great book. I wouldn't put it in the topic of post-apocalyptic romance novels. The was nothing apocalyptic about the book and it wasn't a romance novel. It is a book where they take kids from each district and put them in a game to the death. Katniss is just trying to survive when she says she is in love with Peda "

    "I really enjoy a good science fiction type story, and Divergent hit the spot with it's post apocalypse take on revolution. My teenagers really like it, too, as they felt Beatrice was quite a heroine and somewhat of a role model for standing true to your beliefs."

    "Warm Bodies by Marion was made into a movie which I saw first before I came across the book. It is about zombies, romance, and humanity. The storyline is unique and well-written. I find it entertaining, humorous, and fascinating. "

    "I love the story and the setting. I think this is one of the better post-apocalyptic books. It is not a romance novel, but does feature romance."

    "Matched was a book that I picked up expecting romance elements tied in a post-apocalyptic setting. I was not ready for the journey that this book would take me on though. I really connected with the elements of this story and it helped me to get through a tough time in my life after a breakup."

    "Seems like a decent premise for a young adult novel with a few characters that you could really get into. I'm not really feeling the cover or title though seems a bit childish even for teens."

    "The Maze Runner was a thrilling read. Took me in right from the first page, as Thomas, the main character, arrived in an elevator in a place that defied comprehension - massive stone walls that moved, weird beasts, and a community of boys. And the clincher, they had all lost their memories, and didn't remember a lot of their format lives. Could not put it down!"
