2010 book 64

Carrie Ryan's The Forest of Hands and Teeth
I've been enjoying my post-apocalyptic YA lit, so figured I'd finally give this one a chance--it's about a girl growing up generations after a zombie outbreak, living in a village fortified against the zombie hordes who chill outside their fences. She dreams of seeing the ocean but isn't sure it actually exists. There's also a fairly stupid love quadrangle involving the girl, her best friend, and a pair of brothers. Anyway, it moves at a fairly good pace, and I was pretty terrified of the menacing zombies. The next book in this series comes out next week and I'll definitely be reading it. B+.
