Matched on Monday


After flying through The Hunger Games series, followed by Divergent (and Insurgent.. impatiently waiting Allegiant), I was looking for another trilogy to get my fix of dystopian societies. It had taken me months (literally, since May) to get through Andy Cohen's book, and I started Matched based on some recommendations from friends. The book was awesome. I finished it in a mere 4 days, and am having a hard time not purchasing Crossed. I want to wait until my beach trip where I can read it uninterrupted.

Interested? Here's a synopsis from Good Reads.
"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."

Have you read Matched?
