This World We Live In – Sarah Beth Pfeffer

The first book review for #SciFiMonth!

I loved this story!

The blurb from the back of the book:

It’s been a year since a meteor collided with the moon, catastrophically altering the earth’s climate. For Miranda Evans, life as she knew it no longer exists. Her friends and neighbors are dead, the landscape is frozen, and food is increasingly scarce.

The struggle to survive intensifies when Miranda’s father and stepmother arrive with a baby and three strangers in tow. One of the newcomers is Alex Morales, and as Miranda’s complicated feelings for him turn to love, his plans for his future thwart their relationship. Then a devastating tornado hits the town of Howell, and Miranda makes a decision that will change their lives forever.

This is the third book in the Life As We Knew it series and it brought together the characters from book one and two.

Although it could very easily be read as a stand-alone.

With food running out, Miranda and her family are only barely surviving. So when Miranda’s dad shows up with his wife, new baby and three others in tow, things get a little complicated.

Miranda and Alex get to know each other. He is the first teenage boy Miranda has seen in over a year and she doesn’t want to let him go.

I can’t wait to get to the next book in the series, and see the conclusion!

Has anybody else read this book? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to hear your thoughts. 🙂


  1. Ooh, I wasn’t aware of this series but it seems to have lots of my favourite elements – is it targeted as YA or adult? (the teen romance element always has me wary – I read a little YA, but generally avoid romance plots as it’s not usually my cup of tea)

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Oh darn, I was just thinking after reading that blurb that I’d be interested in picking this up, but I didn’t realize it’s a series! Good to hear that it can be read as a standalone but I think I’m curious enough to check out the first two books and see if I should read them before this one. Great review 🙂
