    • How to Write a Best Selling YA Novel1. Make sure you write the book in a POV that distances us from the narrator. If you have no idea how to write 1st Person Present, do it any way. It makes the book confusing and fun for your reader to plow through. Also, make sure your narrator's POV is very boring. Boring enough to put Plato, Jane Austen, and Shakespeare to sleep. 2. Make your narrator a selfish, boring girl with little to no life outside of her love interest and one singular hobby. Whether i [...]

    • See this family?Or this family?Take a good long hard look at all of their faces. See how happy, how healthy, how loving they are. Imagine you've known them your entire life and that you love each one more than life itself.Now imagine if you were one of the people in that photograph with them. Now imagine that I told you and all those other people standing and smiling with you that I was going to kill you all so that I could go for a trip to the beachOkay, now you know the basic plot of The Fores [...]

    • Synopsis: Sometime in the future, the world is overrun by zombies--people infected by an unknown virus that causes them to return as the undead and feed on human flesh--called the "Unconsecrated". Mary lives in a village surrounded by the Forest of Hands and Teeth, where the Unconsecrated are kept out by a chain-link fence, and to the villagers' knowledge, they may be the last bastion of uninfected humanity. Mary's little world is ruled by fear and the people have turned to a Medieval-like relig [...]

    • I was very much looking forward to reading this book. Great premise, rave reviews. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. First of all, I truly disliked the writing style. Present tense writing can do wonders in skillful hands (see Wake, Fade by Lisa McMann), but in this case this style was mishandled, it didn't add any kind of intensity to the story. Quite the opposite, I was extremely irritated by it. I don't think this book was in any way original. It read mostly like kind of Village/Dawn of the [...]

    • More filler YA garbage. It had potential I guess but the writing quality, the plot quality, the dialogue quality, I just can't. It was like the author lost a bet over how minimal a vocabulary she could use to write a book. Ocean. Ocean. OCEAN. OCEAN OCEAN OCEAN I swear to god stop saying ocean talk about something else anything else. Seriously. Do not hit your readers over the head with a hammer we GET IT. WE GET IT DON'T REMIND US EVERY CHAPTER I AM DROWNING IN YOUR SEA OF OCEANS.All the main c [...]

    • I don’t think I’ve read a zombie book that I didn’t like. Sorry about the spoiler because yes, The Forest of Hands and Teeth is as story about zombies but it’s very gracefully written, you sometimes forget there are zombies in it. Carrie Ryan definitely has an effortless way of bringing art out of her words. Her writing seems to have this hypnotic effect on me and I just had to keep reading.Writing aside though, I think the plot is also very commendable and I think very original. The uto [...]

    • Mary is a shit. Let's get that straight from the beginning. As a main character I tried to like her. I really did. Did NOT happen. The story starts off in a small town that Mary lives in. It's ruled by the Guardians and the Sisterhood. The sisterhood:The book never really explained why the Guardians existed nor much of what they did. I actually want to know more about the creepy Sisterhood that everyone listens too. I don't get why they were in charge. Mary ends up in the Sisterhood due to sever [...]

    • Ok personally, when I see a book rated 3 stars I tend to avoid it, 3 stars to me seems a very poor rating. However, I want to stress that I think this book is worth the read and the story is very intriguing, even so far as that I am looking into getting the next book in the series.So why did it get 3 stars? Well, it was more than 'ok' and I did like it, but there were just enough elements that annoyed me to not reach the 'really liked it' marker, especially when I compare it to other books that [...]

    • I just finished reading, and I'm not sure if I liked it or not. To be honest, I feel sort of drained and depressed now that I am done. However, I've never really read any other stories about zombies, so I don't have anything to compare it to. The plot held my interest, and it is not a very long book, so that is a plus. I can't really say that I sympathized with any of the characters in the story, though.It is told from Mary's point of view, but I didn't really like her very much. I found her obs [...]

    • Warning: some spoilers do run about freely in this novel; like carefree little bunnies. If you are afraid of spoilers and/or bunnies, do not continue on. Awwww! Sooo cute! Let's look at justonemore before I start my review.Sooo Cute. Kind of weird to see little baby bunnies if you know what this book is about. Probably just my ADHD kicking in.BunniesAhem alright, so before I get to what I didn't like about this 3.5 star book, let me start with what I absolutelyadored:Mary is fucking badass, plai [...]

    • I really wanted to like this book because the premise sounded interesting and somewhat original and it was recommended by one of my fave authors. I was looking forward to being "creeped out" as some of the reviews said would happen. Well, I wasn't creeped out and I didn't care for the book at all. Mary lives in a confined village surrounded by fences to keep the Unconsecrated out. The Unconsecrated are zombie like beings that thirst for human flesh/blood. They came after The Return which brought [...]

    • The name of this book When I read it I knew I had to read this book! The name was just promisingAfter finishing the book I was like: Promising name, beautiful coverd a lame plot with lame characters inside. I was more than just disappointed in the end. The plot is not thrilling, neither is it creepy or fascinating or dark. It is long-winded, somehow depressed and the protagonist is annoying. Too many question stay unanswered in the end, the write style is boring and it feels forcedMaybe the seco [...]

    • Nooooo!!!! I had such high hopes! WARNING: This is not a review! This is me ranting and pouring out my all too many emotions at 1:00 in the moring!I did not finish this, and ended up just flipping around pages to see what would happen. Okay, pretty sure everyone is dead by the end of this book, no lie. And I know who Mary "ends up with" in the end. But guess fucking what??! Everyone's dead. DEAD DEAD DEAD!!!!! This book could have had sooooo much potential!!!! Had the romance not been a complete [...]

    • This book dedicates the first third of it to a complicated love triangle/square and the set up of a society that's completely disregarded for the other two thirds of the book. The love triangle is complicated and oh so important. The main character has barely another chance to find a mate before she's tossed to the nuns who are cruel and mysterious. Breeding is also extremely important. Producing children is the main goal for everyone. She's in love with one brother but the other brother has spo [...]

    • 3.5/5.0 stars.Why Not a Higher Rating?*Ultimately this was a rather unsatisfying read for me. It took me a while to get engaged in the story, and to care about the characters.*When that finally happened, then things got rather tragic. I realize that it wasn't Mary's fault, and she showed true heroism, but part of me wanted to blame her for how things unfolded. Probably not fair, but kind of how I felt.*Mary was a bit too wishy-washy for me. She wanted Travis more than anything. No, she wanted to [...]

    • WTFWTFWTFI don't know if I can rate this book right nowI'm fuming.I'm ready to throw this fucking computer against my cubby (if it didn't belong to my work).How could this possibly end this way??? Well, it wouldn't have mattered it there was a fucking sequel but what is that? NO NO NOI go to the next book to read the synopsisd it doesn't mention Mary (even though I hated her)- NO instead this is more of a companion book.So.we are left with:What happened to Mary?Is Jed dead or alive?What happene [...]

    • I’ve been trying to write my reviews soon after I read a novel why the emotion of the story is still fresh within me, but with The Forest of Hands and Teeth, I needed a few days to digest. I particularly enjoyed this novel. The writing was beautiful, it was one of the best written novels I’ve read in a while. The plot itself, while it did remind me of a mix of the movies The Village and I Am Legend, I still found it to be original in context. It was captivating and suspenseful, I had a very [...]

    • This book is the embodiment of so many things I hate. Here are some examples:1. The movie, The Village, by M. Night Shyamalan. I could rant about that piece of trash for hours. If you hated that movie, you will hate this book2. Creepy religious groups3. Nuns that remind me of the Nurse Ratched character from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest4. The fact that, even though this story presumably takes place sometime in the future, people have reverted to quasi-pagan ritual practices5. One girl, two gu [...]

    • I was really excited to read this book when it first came out. But being short on money (like always), I had to wait an entire year for it to come out in paperback. You should have seen my face when I spotted it's cover at Borders. It immediately went to the enormous pile I was lugging around (sadly, I had to put half the books back, because it would be called stealing otherwise). This book is told from the perspective of Mary, a young woman growing up in a small, isolated village surrounded by [...]

    • Suffice it to say I was underwhelmed. While I don't read many zombie novels, I do watch a lot of zombie movies. And alas, I have to say this particular story doesn't stick in my mind. One thing I do know: Mary is a fine example of the uber-selfish heroines that are common in YA, particularly paranormal/dystopian fiction. I'm fine with reading a selfish, unpleasant narrator -- but what I don't like is when selfishness is portrayed as a positive trait. Selfishness isn't mental strength. As with ma [...]

    • It's Zombiefest July! I've been reading zombie books with my MacHalo sisters and felt I needed something a little more, so decided to read this one on my own, in-between other reads.It's the end of the world as we know it. Civilization has long been decimated and no one knows about things like skyscrapers or oceans anymore. All that is known is the forest. The forest is where the "Unconsecrated" are. They have pretty much taken over the world and people have been forced to build huge fences and [...]

    • I still haven't finished reading this book. But I felt it would be necessary to write as I go along reading the ‘Forest Of Hands And Teeth’. Just to make the book to some extent more bearable. Props to the writer who faintly has beautiful way with words, but also has a way with boring me to tears. Yet, I can't tell if I'm bored stiff because of the way it’s written that causes my eyes to go heavy with sleep, or if perhaps it’s the plot. It could be the characters in addition. Or, possibl [...]

    • This seems to be one of those books that gets really mixed reactions. I've read more than a few rants that complain of the writing style (present tense), the love aspect, the originality aspect, and Mary herself, saying she's selfish and unlikeable. And most of the things that seem to bother people about this book help me to love it.I found Ryan's writing beautifully and painfully evocative, and the present tense lent an immediacy to the narration that really worked. There are times when the thi [...]

    • I can solidly say that my acquisition of The Forest of Hands and Teeth is entirely the work of John Scalzi's Big Idea posts that have been prominently featured on his blog. This book was just recently featured, and as soon as I saw the post go up I knew I had to check this one out. I don't read a lot of YA, but this one had all the right elements for me: a young heroine anxious to explore beyond the confines of her restrictive world. A post-apocalyptic setting, where what's left of humanity has [...]

    • Can we talk about zombies? I mean, let's really think about these guys for a minute, because the whole idea of zombies is where my problems with this book begins. I for one am not concerned about the zombie apocalypse. And, if it happens, I have complete faith we can kick the asses out of some stupid, slow versions of ourselves. We'll start with the basic idea of a zombie. Theoretically, these are corpses that get up, walk around, bite people and infect them. Great! Those will be really scary fo [...]

    • The Forest of Hands and Teeth instantly reminded me of the movie The Village and it also made me think of the movie Dawn of the Dead as well. But even if you didn't like those movies or never saw them, don't let it detract from wanting to check out this book.Mary, the main character, lives in a village some time in the not-so-distant future where civilization has been set back by hundreds of years, because of something called "The Return." The village is surrounded by a fence which holds back th [...]
