As is my habit, that would be at least two books. It sort of depends on how you count them.
The book club at my local library is reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan, and I’m also reading The Prince in Waiting by John Christopher, the first of the Sword of the Spirits trilogy.
I’m about 100 pages into Forest, and so far I genuinely dislike the protagonist. Especially given that this book is narrated in the first-person, this might become a problem. On the other hand, the story seems interesting, and there’s always the chance that she’ll be eaten, so I’m not about to give up.
Did I say “eaten”? I meant “reformed.” Really, I did. You know how those typos are.
After this, I think I need to read Dickens. It’s been a long time, and Hard Times is practically calling out to me. Everyone should read more Dickens, anyway.
