My Recent Read

Just thought I'd share my most recent read with you.


I just finished Matched by Ally Condie.  


Look at this cover...
Matched (Matched #1)

Is it not breathtaking?  Probably one of my favorite covers of all time!  


Here's what goodreads will tell you it's about.


Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her: what to read, what to watch, what to believe. So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate . . . until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.
The Society tells her it's a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she's destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can't stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society's infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.

If you like dystopian, you'll like this book.  The pacing was a teensy bit slow for me, but the story is intriguing enough that it kept me going.

Have any of you read it?  What did you think?

  7. I absolutely loved it and can't wait for the next book. I'd heard so many controversial things, but it kept me in the dark during the whole read, which is fantastic.
