★★★★—Matched by Ally Condie

Screen Shot 2014-10-24 at 12.16.56 AM.png
"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." (Goodreads)

My Review

★★★★

Okay. I started this a while ago, and pretty much dropped it. Not because it wasn't interesting or well written, but because of the love triangle plot that's just getting old to me. But, since I can't stand leaving books unfinished, I picked it up again. And I'm glad I did. I like how the love triangle doesn't turn to bitterness, or at least not an overwhelming, character-altering bitterness *coughIgniteMecough*. I like Cassia. I like Ky. I like Xander. And now I'm emotionally invested, so I have to find Crossed somewhere. Great. Another book to crowd my shelves. It's a good problem to have, in my opinion.
