Monday Reads: Matched

Matched by Ally Condie

Yep, another YA novel. I just can't seem to stop reading them, especially the dystopian ones. It's kind of cool to get a glimpse into what the author imagines our world will be like hundreds or even thousands of years from now. 

I am about half way through the book, so look for a review soon. So far I am really enjoying it. I also am not sure how it's going to end or what twists and turns may be in store, which is always a good thing.

Synopsis: For Cassia, nothing is left to chance--not what she will eat, the job she will have, or the man she will marry. In Matched, the Society Officials have determined optimal outcomes for all aspects of daily life, thereby removing the "burden" of choice. When Cassia's best friend is identified as her ideal marriage Match it confirms her belief that Society knows best, until she plugs in her Match microchip and a different boy’s face flashes on the screen. This improbable mistake sets Cassia on a dangerous path to the unthinkable--rebelling against the predetermined life Society has in store for her. As author Ally Condie’s unique dystopian Society takes chilling measures to maintain the status quo, Matched reminds readers that freedom of choice is precious, and not without sacrifice.
