Welcome to my stop on the Wisteria blog tour! To learn more and see the schedule for this tour, just click the lovely banner above!
Sooooo. For my stop, I get to have Bisi Leyton drop by witha  top tens list. A top ten of WHAT, you ask? Well...
Top Ten With Endings That Were Just OHMYGOSH
Yeah, I came up with that. Can you tell? ;) So without further adieu, here's the list!
This was hard, not because I realise I’ve been reading a lot of the same kinds of books and while the
endings haven’t been like wow, I have enjoyed the process of reading them. I’d call myself a journey
reader, because I can love a book, but not care about the end. However, if the journey’s kind of
weak, I’ll drop the book… I suppose that’s most people.
Okay here’s my list:
Number Ten:Second Chance by Nyengi Koin. I found this story really offensive on so many levels.
Number Nine:The Governor’s Sons by Maria McKenzie. Please be warned this book is not what you expected.
Number Eight:Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
Number Seven:
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Okay sure we all know
the twist, but I read this few years ago and if you try to ignore what you already know it’s pretty
surprising. I’m reading this with my niece (who believe it or not hasn’t heard of the book) and she
was shocked.
Number Six:Planet of the Apes by Pierre Boulle
Number Five:The Stepford Wives by Ira Levin
Number Four:Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Number Three:Civil War by Mark Millar
Number Two:Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
Number One:
Cat O'Nine Tales: And Other Stories by Jeffrey Archer. You have to read the short story - Eye of
And that's the list! Thank you so much to Bisi for listing those for me. My personal favorite on this list? The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Close second? Things Fall Apart. Just so you know ;)
Wisteria by Bisi Leyton:

Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.

Eighteen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.

Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.

Praise for Wisteria:

“I love the buildup of this story, getting to know the characters and watching their connection grow. I had no idea which way the story was headed and I was kept in suspense right up to the very end! It has plenty of action and a fascinating plot and I can’t wait to see what Bisi Leyton has for us next!!”

“There are a lot of great things in this book, so much more than zombies and a struggle for survival. At it’s base core it is about star-crossed lovers, literally and the supporting characters roles… Ms. Leyton brings to Wisteria a mixture of science fiction, fantasy, dystopic world with a twist to the paranormal romance angle!”

“The book was full of nonstop action from the beginning until the end, and I did not put it down until I had finished it. I loved the book.”
