Leaf Through Books #1

Leaf Through Books is a daily event that's inspired by MizB's Friday Finds. This meme begins from Saturday through Thursdays (except Friday) & is being hosted by Avi at My Little Feats!

LTB (Leaf Through Books) Meme is simple. All you have to do is find three (3) books or an author (and his series) that interests you, post the image(s) with a link to what's it all about (for example, book reviews or links from an online bookstore like Barnes and Noble or Amazon).
The point of this meme is really to discover and rediscover books that some of us might have overlooked. There's just a lot of good reads out there, and finding new ones with your help makes it easier.

Join the LTB Meme HERE!

 Here are 3 interesting books that I came across today:

The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Euberg

Penny is sick of boys and sick of dating. So she vows: no more. It's a personal choice. . . And, of course, soon everyone wants to know about it. And a few other girls are inspired. A movement is born: The Lonely Hearts Club (named after the band from Sgt. Pepper). Penny is suddenly known for her nondating ways . . . Which is too bad, because there's this certain boy she can't help but like. . .

The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan 

In Mary's world there are simple truths. The Sisterhood always knows best. The Guardians will protect and serve. The Unconsecrated will never relent. And you must always mind the fence that surrounds the village; the fence that protects the village from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. But, slowly, Mary's truths are failing her. She's learning things she never wanted to know about the Sisterhood and its secrets, and the Guardians and their power, and about the Unconsecrated and their relentlessness. When the fence is breached and her world is thrown into chaos, she must choose between her village and her future - between the one she loves and the one who loves her. And she must face the truth about the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Could there be life outside a world surrounded in so much death?
 The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan
Gabry lives a quiet life. As safe a life as is possible in a town trapped between a forest and the ocean, in a world teeming with the dead, who constantly hunger for those still living. She's content on her side of the Barrier, happy to let her friends dream of the Dark City up the coast while she watches from the top of her lighthouse. But there are threats the Barrier cannot hold back. Threats like the secrets Gabry's mother thought she left behind when she escaped from the Sisterhood and the Forest of Hands and Teeth. Like the cult of religious zealots who worship the dead. Like the stranger from the forest who seems to know Gabry. And suddenly, everything is changing. One reckless moment, and half of Gabry's generation is dead, the other half imprisoned. Now Gabry only knows one thing: she must face the forest of her mother's past in order to save herself and the one she loves.
