Waiting on Wednesday (1)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

For my first WOW meme, I am swooning over MATCHED by Ally Condie, which is due for release November 30th 2010!

Interested? Read on!

Why I'm Waiting on Matched
It is a dystopian fantasy novel, the cover is beautiful, the storyline sounds intriguing, there are great reviews on Matched. Plus, the female protagonist's name starts with 'Cass'-- it was fate, I tell ya! ...Disregard that last non-reason.

Blurb (from Goodreads): 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.


This is one novel I've been waiting on for a while, and I'm heartbroken that I have to wait a fair few more months until I can get my hands on it. What book am I going to be featuring next week? There are SO MANY upcoming books that I am waiting on, so who knows? Visit my blog next week for another wonderful book!
