· Forest of Hands and Teeth-posapocolyptic/horror/suspense/romance Girl named Mary lives in a village in the middle of the Forest. They think they are the only humans left. Surrounded by a fence.

They just work as an unorganized mass pushing against the fences surrounding the village. Community is centered on continuing the human race. Marriage happens ceremonially at “The Gathering”. A very “ironic” book.
