BOOK HOARDER’S SELECTION, is a feature of Reading In Winter, which will feature one book from my collection that I plan to read in the coming week. These are NOT review books, but books I’ve purchased, which have been neglected for a long time.

AUTHOR: Carrie Ryan

HOW LONG I’VE HAD IT: Since February 2012.

WHY I’M READING IT: Since this month and next month is the R.I.P.VIII Challenge, I figured this book would be perfect for the category of horror reads! Also, I’ve had it FOREVER. The only thing that makes me nervous is that it has zombies. I’m reaaaaallly not sure how I feel about zombies, but we will see. I do hope that I like this because I went all out (as usual) and bought the entire series.

SYNOPSIS:

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 about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, 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 in so much death?

  1. Read it when it came out and still remember it. Curl up on a chair on a rainy day it is an intense read, but enjoyable. It will keep you turning the pages. It is part of a series, but being the first it can act as a stand alone. *watch The Village afterward and you can get a great effect
