A book that you wish more people had read (or would read)
This is kind of a tough one. Does it mean I should pick something I’ve read within the last year or something from everything I’ve ever read? Hmmm…I think I’m going to keep it simple. I’m going to narrow it down to something I’ve read within the last year and I also took the liberty of tweaking the question a wee bit. And naturally I’m going to tell you that the answer to this question ends up in a tie between The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan and Afterlife by Merrie DeStefano.
I’m picking The Forest of Hands and Teeth because the story stuck with me long after I was done reading the book. It was also unlike any YA book I’d read. It was gritty, dreary and sometimes down right depressing. It was also one of the first reviews I wrote and although it’s not stellar it was the first one I was kind of proud of. You can check it out here.
Next up we have Afterlife. I was suffering through a reading funk and I was asked to review this book. I didn’t really expect much and ended up being pleasantly surprised. This story was a really cool blend of urban fantasy and science fiction. I don’t read much science fiction so it’s possible that the subject matter has been done before but as far as I’m concerned it was like a breath of fresh air. The last few chapters were crazy intense and I literally had to put the book down and walk away for a little while. For more of what I thought you can check out the review I did for Bite Club here.
