The Time Will Come (9)
The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books for Company, where we can highlight the books on our shelves that we’ve been meaning to get to for some time, but have been put on the back burner for one reason or another.
The book that I chose for this week is:
Matched (Matched #1)
Published 2010 by Dutton Books, a member of Penguin Group (USA) Inc.
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.

I got this book earlier this year, so it hasn’t been sitting on my shelf for too long, but it’s one of those books that all fans of YA dystopians are just supposed to have read, you know? There are lots of mixed reviews out there, too, even within my friends and the bloggers I follow. Seriously, out of my 79 Goodreads friends, 43 of them have read it, and another 9 have marked it as to-read. So yeah, I need to read it soon. Maybe when I get done with my YA contemporary reading binge I’ll pick this one up.
What books have been pushed back for you? Let me know, or leave a link to your post if you’re participating in this meme and I’ll be sure to stop by your blog! And don’t forget to check out my stop on the Vacation Reads Giveaway Hop!
