It's a little after 8 am and I'm really stinkin' tired. This is all my own doing of course, I can't even blame my son for waking me up crying. And I owe it all to one awesome book that kept me up way later then I wanted. My eyes were burning but I kept turning those pages. I was hooked. I AM hooked. I've got the book right here with me now so while my son watches Sesame Street and eats his cheerios mommy can read all about the zombies trying feed on human flesh. (boy, there's one theme I don't think I'll see Elmo discussing anytime soon)
Just to clarify I am in love with this book which stopped me from precious sleep long after I shut down my trusty laptop. The book is The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan and I can safely say I highly recommend it even with only being a little more than half way done. It's creepy and dark but just so captivating! If I hadn't bought it because of what I'd heard from a a fellow blogger Beth who went to the book signing (thank you!) and from reading the author's blog and knowing this was her first published novel and wanting to support her- I'd be definitely be buying it after seeing how much I liked it.
This has been a great week for reading for me. I better hope the next one becomes a good week for writing! I'll no doubt be posting my entire impression of this book once I finish in the next day or so.
*Here's a little something that might make you laugh on this Monday morning. When trying to tell my sister about this book I must have said every possible combination of wrong words and she just kept looking at me like I was nuts and asking what the hell the name really was! Here are some of them...
The Forest of Feet and Hands
The Forest of Feet and Teeth
The Forest of Hands and Feet
The Forest of Teeth and Hands
No people it's The Forest of Hands and Teeth - say it with me...
Once you read it you'll see why. I won't be messing the title up again after getting in this deep. So awesome!
