This may not be the creepiest title page, but the title is quite ominous. This is the third book in the Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy which is an excellent YA zombie story. Each book focuses on a different character in a post-apocalyptic zombie infested world. Carrie Ryan brings some new and wonderfully frightening aspects to zombie lore and manages to include some heart-pounding romance too. I really want to reread these books soon.

i went to the movies this morning and saw "mother" and oh my this movie was so weird and so not what i expected. but so good! have you seen it?
.
today's promt for #didyousayhorrorchallenge is zombies!
i am a big zombie fan, i love them so much, they're so gory and creepy and funny too.
my favourite zombie books are from "the forest of hands and teeth" by @carrieryanwrites trilogy. i read these books first time four years ago, and I reread them two years ago and still love them. i might reread them next year!
also a zombie book that has been on my tbr for more than two years now is "world war z" ! i saw the movie and really enjoyed it. not a lot of people seem to really like the book, but i am still very curious to read it and hope to get to it next year.

#igwritersoct Day 7: Favorite Character. Picking your favorite character is like trying to pick a favorite child...oh who am I kidding, I have a favorite child. (Depending on the day of the week.) #parentoftheyear But for some reason with books it's a bit harder. So I perused my bookshelves, trying to pick ~the~ favorite. And I realized it was Annah from THE DARK AND HOLLOW PLACES by Carrie Ryan. This series is near and dear to my heart but the final book in the series really spoke to me. Annah has this impossible journey of survival. And so much of the book is spent in her head--not dialogue or plot--but in her head. When all the odds are against her and giving up is the humane thing to do she focuses on that one beacon...survival. I love that about her. .

“Who are we if not the stories we pass down? What happens when there's no one left to tell those stories? To hear them? Who will ever know that I existed? What if we are the only ones left -- who will know our stories then? Who will remember those?” ― Carrie Ryan, The Forest of Hands and Teeth

Have you guys read this trilogy? Tbh, it was so promising. (post-apocalypse with ZOMBIES? Sign me up!) the TITLE is so cool and intriguing. The cover is great, too. Fits the title well. But the main character. Lord. She annoyed me to death. If you've read this let me know. I've been meaning to reread it but I just can't get to it yet.

I'm looking forward to rereading the Forest of Hands and Teeth trilogy this Fall. I need some zombie lore since I quit watching The Walking Dead a few seasons ago (it got too drawn out and boring and they really messed up Rick as a character, okay😫).

My day: My daughter started kindergarten today. She woke up at 5am because the tooth fairy came last night because I pulled out her first loose tooth yesterday😲. My son had his first dentist appointment this morning which did not go well. He had approximately 14 tantrums while the ladies tried to sweet talk him and give him a toothbrush. He went full Hulk😡, I was in awe and also terribly embarrassed🙈. I've had a plumber at my house all morning fixing things and I've kissed all my money goodbye. But my pipes don't bang and clang every time we run water anymore. So yay🚰🚿! Oh, and I ate an entire pizza🍕. How's your Friday going?

have you read 'the forest of hands and teeth' trilogy ?

this is my favorite ya trilogy (and the only ya series i've actually completed). i love carrie ryan's writing style so much. she is good at describing the feelings of her characters and making the reader feel those feelings. the three books tell three different stories, and so are told from different characters point of views, that are all connected in some ways. i would say that from book 1 to 3, it gets better and better. i loved the first book a lot lot lot –like a lot!– but i loved the second book even more, and the third one even more –even though there was some missing elements in the third one, compared to the first two, it was my favorite of all three.
i really wish there was a fourth book because i miss reading about the forest and the Mudo/Unconsecrated and Anna, Gabry, Elias, Catcher...
Don't ask why I have jars of graveyard dirt and rock salt, actually do ask, cause that's a fun story. 😉

Day 28 of #jayjaysfaerytalesjune Is pearl: an unexpected find. I picked up The Forest of Hands and Teeth when I was a junior in high school and fell in love with the first novel. The other two in the trilogy were good, but nothing like the first, it was The Village meets the zombie apocalypse. They were at times terrifying and at other times hopeful, but always suspenseful. Plus, the covers 😍💀
.
QOTD: Do any of you watch The Walking Dead??
AOTD: Yes, I binged it with my family a few summers ago and now it's our Sunday night ritual. 😊
.
Time to catch up on some tags! The beautifully sweet and gorgeous @faerytales_and_fangirling tagged me in the #bookstagramname tag. My bookstagram name came from a fear of mine.... dogeared pages. *cringe* Because fear of the name only increases fear of the thing itself. And Harry Potter's birth year, 1980. 🤓
Feel free to tell your story if I tag you!

There's still about 40 minutes left in my day so here is my day 27 of #livelaughbooksjune !!! Which is Long Titles

These are probably my favourite post-apocalyptic books, though I will admit it too me longer than I'm proud of to realize they were about zombies 😆

Čteno: 31.7. - 9.8.2015 Vlny zmítané smrtí je úžasná kniha jak o zombie, tak o lásce, strachu, trpělivosti a mnohém dalším. Prostě téma zombie zpracováno skvěle. Rozhodně doporučuji, ale nejdříve by jste si měli přečíst první díl 😊 #vlnyzmitanesmrti #thedarkandhollowplaces #carrieryan #roman #novel #kniha #knihy #book #books #instabook #instabooks #bookstagram #vicecasunacteni #booklover #bookaholic #reading #read #ilovereading #ilovebooks #mladafronta #prague #2015

Such lovely prompts for today- green💚, nature🌿... nightmare fuel😱😂. So the question is- What's green, in nature, and also nightmare fuel🤔? Zombies. Zombies in the woods, AKA The Forest of Hands and Teeth. I read this series years ago when I was deep in the zombie obsession. I loved it. As a zombie story aficionado I promise this series brings some brand new ideas to zombie lore👏. They are exciting, romantic, terrifying, unique, and I'm gushing😂. I would really like to reread these this year. Maybe they will go on my October TBR🎃💀👻. The opening to the second book is 🙀👍👏😿. So freaking good💖. #ampersandmay17 #circleofbookishfriends #grimdragon #theforestofhandsandteeth #thedeadtossedwaves #thedarkandhollowplaces #booksandcandles #zombiebooks #zombielore #book #books #bookish #booknerd #bookworm #bookholic #bookstagram #booklove #bookrecommendation #bookstagrammer #booknerdigans
