Waiting on Wednesday: Matched

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I am practically salivating for the November 30th arrival of Matched by Ally Condie. This book has been on my want list forever & I am stoked to see so much enthusiasm for its debut!

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.

How fabulous does that sound? It sounds a little like star-crossed lovers meeting in a dystopian world. I am so excited to see how Ally Condie makes this all play out. Hopefully my review will fall among the many fans. What are you waiting on this week?
