Teaser Tuesday with The Forest of Hands and Teeth

Teaser Tuesdays 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!
The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan is the first book in a post-apocalyptic series. So far, it's fantastic. Lots of tension and mystery. There's been a lot of zombie stories out there recently, but this one is unique. I'm not so consumed with the thought of the zombies, or rather, the Unconsecrated, but everything else going on. A lot of intense emotions and I can't put the book down.
Here's your teaser:
I am waiting for him to push me away and tell me that we cannot do this. That I am not his to take and that he will not betray his brother. (page 89)


  1. Wow! Interesting title. I wonder why is it called The Forest of hands and teeth?


  2. Oh! I really LOVE that teaser! This book and the other two in the trilogy are high on my favorite book list - thank you for sharing! :)

  4. I've got the next two books at the library waiting for me right now! It was a good book. Very original.

  5. Oh, I've seen this book around, but wasn't keen on it. I'm seriously going to get a copy to read. The snippet is loaded with conflict/tension. Thanks for sharing!
