This week’s book recommendation is The Forest of Hands and Teeth series by Carrie Ryan.

I read these a while back, before the big zombie craze began. I’d never read any YA books that had zombies in them. Ryan did a great job with the series. I ended up liking the last book the best. Each book has a different character’s POV. It annoyed me at first (after I finished the first book), but I ended up liking the next two characters even better than the original one. If you enjoy zombies or dystopian, you’ll probably end up liking these. Even if you don’t find zombies to be that appealing, I still recommend giving the first book a try.

Intrigued? Here’s the synopsis from the first book, The Forest of Hands and Teeth:

In Mary’s world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary’s truths are failing her. She’s learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.

When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future—between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?

Read it!
