Forest of Hands and Teeth
First of all this book takes place after the zombie apocalypse. Zombies are called the unconsecrated. The story follows a young woman named Mary, the lives in a small village that is surrounded by a big fence to keep the people of the town safe from the unconsecrated. The book starts of with her being torn between two brothers. One that she loves and one that loves her. She ends up spending time at the church with the sisterhood (the women who basically run the town) when an unexpected guest appears. Someone from out of town. The whole village had been lead to believe however that there was nothing past their fences. Soon after the mysterious woman appears the fence is breached and Mary must run. Along with a few other members of the town.
The book follows her while she tries to survive and find somewhere safe as well as decide between the two men that she loves.
I wasn't the biggest fan of this book. I would probably give it a 3 out of 5. Although, after reading this book and watching The Walking Dead TV series I do feel extra prepared for a zombie apocalypse should it ever happen!
