Waiting on Wednesday: Matched by Ally Condie

Matched by Ally Condie
Release date:
November 30, 2010

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

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.

Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic.

As I'm sure many of you have figured out, I am easily seduced by a pretty cover. I've seen this cover in some vlogs by other bloggers, and they all talk about how shiny it is. I covet it, so I will definitely be buying this book when it comes out.

Aside from the gorgeous cover, the premise of this book sounds really intriguing. I can't wait to learn more about the world Condie has created. I've also already started seeing positive reviews of this book, which seems like a good omen.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine.


  1. Oh, want! This is definitely on my wish list, too. Premise is great and I love the cover.

  2. I just finished reading this one last night! It is so good! The only thing I was disappointed with was I got a galley, and it didn't have that beautiful cover! :( oh well, the inside was still good!

  3. I have this sitting in my pile - I'm SUPER excited to start it. *flails*

  4. Grace, I'm glad to hear it's so good!

    Nicole, I've signed up for an ARC tour for this one, but if I don't make it on to that I'm pretty sure I can borrow a copy, which is awesome.

  5. Great choice - I just finished it and it is wonderful! Now I can't wait for the next one.

  6. Oh yes...the cover is gorgeous on this one and so fitting for the story! I can vouch (at least in my opinion) that the story is good....working through an ARC of it now (hehe) with the not quite as pretty cover, but WOW, the story is GREAT! Definitely a great idea for your wish list...happy reading! ^_^

  7. Shelbie just finished this one, I'm kind of regretting not signing up for the ARC tour for this one, because it sounds amazing, and look at that gorgeous cover! *sigh* Oh well, it's only a few more months.
