Impatient for Books #1

You know that feeling you get when you’ve read a great book but then have an entire year to wait before number two comes out, and you don’t think you can possibly wait that long because you have to know what happens RIGHT NOW?

Yeah, that. :)

Well, last year, I read MATCHED by the amazing and talented Ally Condie (If you haven’t read this series… WHY NOT?). Suffice it to say, it has been a long year waiting for the sequel.

But the wait is almost over! On November 1, CROSSED is finally coming out! 

Yesterday, Ally released the link to the official trailer for CROSSED. You should definitely check it out. Just click here.

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.

 In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

So what books are you impatient for?


  1. I've seen that book on Amazon -- that little slide bar thing that shows books other users have bought -- but never checked it out, but that sounds pretty interesting actually! And I know what you mean, I hate the having to wait for the next book in a series to come out :/ At least your wait is almost over!

  2. That 20 Something - Isn't having to wait for a book so hard?? You should definitely check out the MATCHED series. Ally is an awesome writer. :)
