Teaser Tuesday (#31): The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

teasertuesday13


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s Teaser comes from the following book:

Title: The Forest of Hands and Teeth
Author: Carrie Ryan
Publisher: Delacorte
Published: March 10, 2009
*Cover for reprint edition published May 14, 2013

Purchase: Amazon  |  B&N

From Goodreads:

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, when the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness.

Now 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 by so much death?

My teaser:

"I'm thrown over his shoulder and I can feel how his body shakes and I know that he is crying.  For me, for Beth.  And I wonder if there was ever a crueler world than this one that forces us to kill the people we love most."
      
                                                     - page 277

I absolutely loved this book.  Just the right amount of thrill, suspense, romance....and the undead.

 I’d love to know what your Teaser is!
