      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 it be lov [...]

      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 Dead I A [...]

      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 character [...]

      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 utopian world i [...]

      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 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 several of the char [...]

      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 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 ve said [...]

      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 obsessiv [...]

      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 justone 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, plain and simple [...]

      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 de [...]

      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 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 second book is [...]

      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 crapptastic catastrophe, [...]

      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 spoken f [...]

      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 than anything No, she wanted to leave to fi [...]

      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 of a companion book.So.we are left with What happened to Mary Is Jed dead or alive What happened with Cass, H [...]

      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 hard tim [...]

      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 guys in lov [...]

      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 a fence [...]

      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 many other Y [...]

      It s Zombiefest July I ve been reading zombie books with my MacHalo sisters and felt I needed something a little , 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 any 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 whatever other [...]

    24. Merna on said:

      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 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, possibly it s all three com [...]

    25. Misty on said:

      This seems to be one of those books that gets really mixed reactions I ve read 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 things that [...]

      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 had [...]

    27. Michael on said:

      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 for a lit [...]

      Yes Mary was not my favorite character ever written but I did enjoy a little Christmas zombie reading

    29. Shannon on said:

      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 the Fo [...]
