Release: Wither by Lauren DeStefano and The Dark and Hollow Places by Carrie Ryan
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?
Both of these novels are highly acclaimed. Wither is the new dystopian novel to the block, I've heard very gripping and very realistic. Poses questions such as: what will happen in the future? Will modern science advance so much that our live spans will shorten accordingly? And The Forest of Hands and Teeth series I've heard it bone-chilling, keep-you-up-at-night scary. Both are Must Reads! Can't wait till I can get my hands on them!
