Week 36 Review: Matched

From Goodreads:
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.

My Review:
This was such an amazing book! I loved the thought that there could be a perfect, society, but not at the expense of freedom of choice. Or freedom at all. Look at the cover. She's in a perfect glass orb, and she's stuck in in. I really like the covers!

And I loved that she had to choose between a really close friend, an a kinda friend who shouldn't really be a choice at all. That wasn't the best of situations, and a hard one to be in, what with pressures from society, and her family, and both of them!

This was really good, and I really liked how she started to rebel, an the other ways that her family rebelled, too. Because I mean, it's such a bad society, and yeah, it like, has no good points, being told who to marry, people dying at a certain age.

This was an excellent book, and I can't wait to read Crossed!
