Waiting on Wednesday: The Dark and Hollow Places

This is inspired by a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. In this post I talk about books yet to be released that I'm excited about OR already published book's I've seen that I'm really wanting to read. I also like to try and find books other bloggers aren't sharing so that more books are shared.

This week I'm waiting on:
The Dark and Hallow Places
by Carrie Ryan
Release Date: March 22

Why I'm Waiting
I'm a zombie nut.  I love zombie books.  This series is really what got me started.  I read The Forest of Hands and Teeth and fell in love with it.  Then really really loved The Dead-Tossed Waves.  Now I just need to know how it all comes to a conclusion! I have a student who is waiting for this one as well - I think even more than me!

From Goodreads
There are many things that Annah would like to forget: the look on her sister's face before Annah left her behind in the Forest of Hands and Teeth, her first glimpse of the Horde as they swarmed the Dark City, the sear of the barbed wire that would scar her for life. But most of all, Annah would like to forget the morning Elias left her for the Recruiters.  

Annah's world stopped that day, and she's been waiting for Elias to come home ever since. Somehow, without him, her life doesn't feel much different than the dead that roam the wasted city around her. Until she meets Catcher, and everything feels alive again.

But Catcher has his own secrets. Dark, terrifying truths that link him to a past Annah has longed to forget, and to a future too deadly to consider. And now it's up to Annah: can she continue to live in a world covered in the blood of the living? Or is death the only escape from the Return's destruction?

  5. Hmm...I didn't like Forest of Hands and Teeth, but I did enjoy a short story that Ryan did in Zombies vs. Unicorns. I may have to give the series another chance. Nice pick!

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW post here.

  6. I really enjoyed reading the fist book. I haven't read The Dead-Tossed Waves, because the paperback version wasn't available yet (well the one with the good cover). Now it is, so I cannot wait to read it. :)

  7. Ooooh! Looking forward to this one as well! Thanks for posting! :)
