Matched (Matched #1)


goodreads summary- 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.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I liked Matched but got sucked into the hype of having people that I know read it way back when it was going out as the ARC hardcover, and so I was overexcited and went into it expecting more. It was still a great read, but some parts did drag a little bit I thought.

The series is going to be great though. I can feel it. I bet book 2 is even better.

message 14: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (cattymccat) | 754 comments It's really good, but I do think that the best part was at the end. That's where it really picked up for me. But I can't wait for book two now!!!

Jean Valjean (OG 2010) (courfeyrack) I just started reading it a few hours ago and I'm seriously almost finished. I am SO effing hooked! Cassia is kinda weak minded, but I have high hopes for her.

message 41: by Cindy (new)

Cindy | 20 comments I read it after it came out i was not sure what to expect but i can say WOW i cant wait for the next book. Anyone want to discuss the book/story?


message 42: by brittany (new)

brittany (cirilla) I didn't like it very much. It was just okay.


message 43: by Michele (new)

Michele It was an effort to finish reading it. It was just really boring for the majority, the few parts I did like about it didn't outweigh the rest.
I didn't hate it, I just wish I hadn't wasted my money on buying it, for a relatively thick book bugger all happened. It was a sweet and innocent book with some beautiful bits. The characters were so dull, the only one I liked was Ky and it seems like he's set up to be the always unfortunate one.
I tried to like it more because the sentimentality and the poetry. This book was definitely not what I expected it to be from reading the GR review. Bummer!

My thoughts exactly.

Lis (lovelyshadowgirl) | 33 comments I love this book.I won an ARC and read it quickly.It was well paced and I actually enjoyed it:)


message 46: by Maritza (new)

Maritza | 169 comments Ima read it tomorrow


message 47: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (cattymccat) | 754 comments It did go by really fast. I just feel like it was just starting to pick up (story wise) at the end... So I'm thinking the second book is going to be really really good. I loved the characters too!


message 48: by Camilla (new)

Camilla (camillaisloved) | 914 comments I agree with you, Catherine. I just hope that the second book is better. I did find it interesting how our societies might actually end up with that kind of outcome. The futuristic part.


message 49: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (cattymccat) | 754 comments It was definitely a good idea... A good story. The execution was just a little off.


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) The first half really did drag for me, but at least the ending showed that the series has potential. I'll read on just to see if it picks up.
