Waiting on Wednesday (5)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My pick this week:

The Dead-Tossed Waves
By Carrie Ryan
Publication date: March 9, 2010

Description from author's website: "Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She’s content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry’s mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry’s generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother’s past in order to save herself and the one she loves."

This is one of my most anticipated book releases of 2010 and although it is being released on March 9th I will probably have to wait a few more months to read it. I loved The Forest of Hands and Teeth but I am not sure if this is a sequel, prequel, or companion novel and I look forward to finding out! If like me, you can't wait to read this book, read an excerpt from Carrie Ryan's website!

That's my WoW pick this week, what is yours?

  4. In reply to your comment, yeah, I did read Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater and it was AMAZING! One of my top favorite books of all time, the best werewolf book ever, screw Twilight. Twilight is a great vampire book, but Meyer can't do werewolves.
    Thanks for your interest in Pages!

  5. Great pick! I can't wait for this one. I'm not a huge zombie fan, but Forest of Hands and Teeth was great.
