Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis
What if water was almost inexistent? Lynn and her mother have their own pond and have to spend every waking minute protecting it from outsiders. What we can learn from Lynn? Frontier survival skills! This may not be an actual horror read, but Lynn's world is pretty horrific (especially in the follow up).

Bubonic plague has actually been in the news of late (there are cases every year), but what if a virulent new strain left you quarantined?
6 / 11
The Strain by Guillermo Del Toro

The Drawing of the Three: (The Dark Tower #2) by Stephen King
This might be an odd addition, but Roland knows that in order to survive in his world AND complete his quest, his chosen companions are of the utmost importance. It's true too that we've seen lots of groups survive their own apocalyptic settings by building a core group of individuals who all have unique strengths.
9 / 11
Breeding Ground by Sarah Pinborough
BREEDING GROUND is a creature feature apocalypse of horrific proportions. Here, Pinborough's survivors have to figure out how to make it in a world infested by man-eating spiders! Let's hope it never comes to this, folks!

Infected: A Novel (The Infected) by Scott Sigler
