Wonderfully Wicked ReadAThon Challenge

 Hey How is everyone's reading coming? Ok. As promised here is my lovely challenge!

The Challenge

I was having some issues finding my own challenge, so this one is from Michelle at Book Briefs. Its quite simple and super fun!!! Thanks to April at Shelf Confessions for helping me construct it.

For this challenge you will be making one sentence using only book titles. You cant add or leave out any words. You can use as many books as you'd like. Your sentence will probably be silly but that makes it even more fun! Just make sure its a real sentence. Subject & Verb! Here is my example:

A beautiful, dark witch song crossed the haunted, wicked woods.
Wow! that sentence sounds scary...sort of like youre lost in the woods...then you start hearing things.. :/ Here are my books:

Woo not too hard huh? If you have a blog, you can make a post with your sentence and book covers then link it in the comments. If you dont have a blog, just add your sentence to the comments then list the book titles and authors you used! Also, since our event here has a twitter tag, as a extra entry, tweet your sentence with the tag (#WWReadathon) and url to this post then add a direct link to your tweet in a seperate comment!

This challenge is TIMED!! Yes thats will only have a few hours to complete this and get your entries in! The challenge starts at 4pm est and will end at 10 pm est. That gives you 6 hours. I will choose the winner promptly at 10:15 pm!! If you are having trouble please feel free to tweet me at @Alove4Lit !


We will have 1 winner that will be chosen randomly from everyone who completes the challenge. The winner will get to choose one paranormal/supernatural/horror book of their choice from Book Depository.

Review: The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Title: The Forest of Hands and Teeth
Author: Carrie Ryan
Series Info: Book 1 of 3
Theme: Zombies, PostApocalyptic, Dystopian
Rating: 5 Hearts
Summary: Through twists and turns of fate, orphaned Mary seeks knowledge of life, love, and especially what lies beyond her walled village and the surrounding forest, where dwell the Unconsecrated, aggressive flesh-eating people who were once dead.

My Overall Thoughts: The town in which the main character lives is surrounded by a fench. There is nothing outside of the fench except woods...and zombies! There are no other towns..or at least thats what everyone is told and is urged to believe!! Although...somehow there are these trails that go off into the woods...Do they really lead to nowhere?

I must say, i really loved this book!! The writing was greatly detailed and beutifully paced. It was nice to see the characters grow and change from just believing everything they hear to discovering things from themselves. I really love the action and zombie scenes!! I was very suspenseful, the whole book was sort of exhausting. For the whole huge journey i was like "Aaahhhhh get there already"..or get somewhere besides walking around on the trails. Im still undecided about the ending and where they actually "get".
This was my first zombie book ive ever read i really liked it. Before i read it, i half expected a human zombie love thing...but its pretty clear in the first few pages that that wont be happening! I like that the book is different in that it focus on life, loss, faith and strength instead of only love. This is why i gave it 5 hearts.
What I Liked: I really like the "love" in this books. Not only the romance but Mary's love for her family, friends, and self. Mary has to go through SO much loss and destruction...but she doesnt get too bitter.
What I Didn't Like: I didnt like that the part right towards the end when they get to the end of the path...I dont want to spoil it...but youll know what i mean when you get there!! It just seems so unfair...its like "WHAT? You have got to be kidding me"... In actuallity its a very realistic and possible just soo used to YA having perfect sweet endings where everyone lives happily ever after. Ms. Ryan is not afraid to leave the sugar coating elsewhere. These things werent enough of a dislike to lower the rating though.
My Favorite Quote: "We are our own memory-keepers and we have failed ourselves."

First Line Friday

  • Title: Hunting Ivy

  • Author: Alyxandra Harvey

First Line: I was nine years old when my mother decided it was time I took part in the family business. I was pretty enough now, she said, that I might be of use.

What do you think: fab or flab? Does it make you wanna read it or run from it? Without reading a summary, what can you gather from just the first sentence?

First Line Friday: This is a weekly event that spotlights those amazing first lines in book! The first line (and first chapter) sets the foundation for the book and influences first inpressions! These are my first lines, you be the judge! Brought to you by Katie's Book Blog
