Book Review; Matched by Ally Condie


Hey everyone!

I've decided to bring another thing that I love to my blog: reading. I read alot, always have, and hopefully always will. Even when I was a child, the thought of getting immersed into a good book left me enthralled. I believe that reading is so important [I promise this isn't a lecture post!]. If you think reading is boring, you're reading the wrong books. Don't let anyone ever tell you that it is 'stupid'- Quite the opposite actually, as it makes you smarter!

Today I'll be reviewing a book I recently read and loved. As a huge dystopian fiction fan [that's post apocalyptic, or futuristic] I had been meaning to read this book for a while, and it was only when I ran out of books to read did I pick it up from the library. I'm so glad I did! I don't want to give too much away, as I don't want to spoil the book for you, so I'll just post the blurb from the back of the book. If you would prefer a longer summary in future, let me know!

About the Book;

My Opinion;
The blurb simply doesn't do this book justice. Although I thought the book appeared good enough after reading the back, never did I think it would be as good as it was! Its one of those books that you just cant put down. Each chapter left me wanting more, as I constantly wanted to know what happened next. The book features a strong, independent female, which I like. Usually, I tend to dislike the lead female character, for just being annoying, however I could relate to Cassia and found her very easy to like. I wasn't too keen on the male characters, for once! I know it may seem like a typical teen love triangle, but it really isn't! It was a very believable book, and I can't wait to read the rest of the series. The plot itself was very captivating. There were no moments where I wanted to to fall asleep half way through- From the very first page, I was hooked. If you like The Hunger Games or Divergent, you will definitely love this.
