Reading Level: Young Adult


Book description 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:


Matched has alot of surprises for you. It draws you in at the beginning when Cassia goes to her Matched banquet, it has twist that you would not expect!


Everyone gets three pills they carry with them Blue, Green, and red tablet. Blue saves you, Green calms you down, and no one knows what Red does there's only rumors about it.


Cassia is matched to her best friend, that is rare enough, but when she finally decides to read the micro card they gave her about her match she gets a unexpected surprise.


In the end Cassia has a quest on her hands, to get the man she truly loves back.


My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This book is completely clean, not even one cuss word.

  1. Hi! Just found your blog!

    I agree, that was quite a surprise at the Matched banquet! This was a great read and I love dystopian novels.

    Thanks for your review!
