The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Here's a quite bite from Carrie Ryan's website:

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, when the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.

Now 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 by so much death?

My Take

This book was absolutely a page turner!  It was so suspensful.  I couldn't wait to find out what happened with Mary, Travis, Harry and everyone.  It's dystopian at it's best.  I never thought I could really get into the whole zombie thing, but this book was a definite must read.  You feel pulled into the storyline and the characters are relatable.  I'm giving this one 5 very alive kisses!  Oh and I'm currently reading The Dead Tossed Waves.


  1. I still haven't read this - it's been on my wishlist for ages - really have to pick this one up!

  2. You gave it such high praise. But I'm so freaked out by zombies. Truly!

  3. I loved this book. I've been meaning to read books 2 and 3.

    Have a great weekend.


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are regarding my posts! ~Thanks
