This week’s book recommendation is Matched by Ally Condie. Matched is kind of similar to one of my favorites, The Giver, though there’s more of an emphasis on love/romance. But Cassia also begins to realize that her perfect seeming society isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. I love books that are set in these “perfect” type of societies only for the main character to discover otherwise. This is also one of the few books I’ve come across that presents a successful love triangle. If you like dystopian books about flawed, controlling societies and romances, you’ll love this one.



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.
