I sat down with an advanced copy of The Forest of Hands and Teeth around midnight on Friday night, expecting to be able to put it down after a chapter and pick it up again in the morning. Yeah, that was a mistake. Around 3:00 in the morning, I turned off the light. And lay there, wide awake, thinking about this book, for another hour.

Carrie Ryan's tale is one that will get in your head and refuse to leave -- it is truly one of the most haunting tales I've read in a very long time. I described it to a friend as "a movie producer's dream mash-up of The Village and 28 Days Later, only better." I would recommend this book to any girl who loves a good chilling tale. And I'd like to take this opportunity to beg the author to write a sequel.

I was lucky enough to get my hands on two advanced copies, and gave one to my older sister. I'll post an update when I get her review.
