My rating: 2 of 5 stars

As a stand-alone book, this was okay. As a sequel to the first book in the series, it was kind of lame. A lot of the plot elements seemed re-hashed from the first one. The pacing was pretty slow as well, and by about halfway through, I was ready for something to finally happen and the story to wrap up.

The Forest of Hands and Teeth

A YA zombie apocalypse romance novel? Indeed.
I was pleasantly surprised at how well this book kept my attention. Although it had similarities to a lot of the recent YA dystopian romances that have been out lately, it had some interesting twists and turns that I didn’t expect. The main character definitely took a page from Bella Swan’s school of leading guys on in relationships, but the resolution took me by surprise. I also don’t think she’d have a chance at a lasting relationship with either guy, considering her lack of communication skills… I’m not sure what they talked about in their time alone together, but they left a lot of things unsaid and important questions unasked until the situation became dire.

I’m slightly disappointed that there’s a sequel, as I really thought the resolution of the book worked out very well, and I’m not sure I’d like a second book, though I think I’ll probably end up reading it anyways.
