I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy of Matched, and I can’t say enough nice things about this book. It’s got a lot of the same elements that I loved about The Hunger Games — while still standing out as a unique entry in the dystopian genre. (And I’ll have my official review closer to the pub date.)
The book comes out November 30th, but you can have some fun getting “matched” yourself at the book’s official website.
Here’s more about Matched:
Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.
And if that’s not enough, here’s a few more “breathless” book titles to pique your interest:
