Book Review: Matched by Ally Condie

Synopsis (from 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 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.

Inappropriate content: Very little.

My thoughts: I really like this book. Its story line is typical YA dystopian, but it held my attention the entire time I was reading it.

Sequels: Crossed; Reached

    I really enjoyed the book but the last few chapters just weren’t as detailed as u would have liked them to be. But the plot line was very well thought of, then expertly put into words.

    That book sounds really interesting! I should put it on my list of books to read…
