Review: I had a hard time getting into this book in the beginning. One, because I was reading at least 2 other books, and two, because it took a while for the main character to get to an exciting point in her life. Anyway, The Forest of Hands and Teeth was an amazing book to read, filled with action, adventure, romance, and the infamous Unconsecrated -- what their world calls what are basically zombies. This is a book that I would definitely recommend, and will probably be rereading again by next summer.
Quotes from the Book:
