[book:The Forest of Hands and Teeth|3432478

"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?"

Are there only three books in this series? I just ordered three on Amazon.

I think so. I put all three on hold from my library.

Awesome! From what I researched, there are only three so hopefully that's it :)

This was a really great book! Didn't think I'd like the whole zombie-thing, but I finished it in two days and it was all I could think about when I wasn't reading it. Also, a production company has rights to the movie adaptation, so I will be looking forward to seeing that!

I am struggling to read this book. I find it kind of slow.

The other ones are a lot harder to read :/

Avid Reader and Geek Girl (avidreaderandgeekgirl) I liked it, but don't think I'm going to finish it, it stops and starts too much.

I just finished. It was pretty anti-climactic.

So, for those of you who didn't know, we are going to be reading the second book of the series this month. The series will be continued as an optional read.

Book Two: The Dead-Tossed Waves
The Dead-Tossed Waves (The Forest of Hands and Teeth, #2) by Carrie Ryan
"Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves."
