Waiting on Wednesday (4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on: 

Matched by Ally Condie
Releases November 30, 2010

In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It's barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one... until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she's known and a path no one else has ever dared follow-between perfection and passion. 

Why I'm waiting on Matched:
I've heard nothing but amazing things about this novel. The synopsis sounds way too good for me to not immediately be intrigued. I love dystopian novels, so I'm especially excited to get to read this book! And how gorgeous is that cover?!

What are YOU waiting on this Wednesday? :)

I can't wait to read Matched either. Not much longer to go thankfully.

Oh gosh, I LOVED this book! I think I am giving away my ARC next week. I hate to part with it, but I want to own the beautiful hardcover anyway. Great choice!! Hope you come by and see my WOW!

I feel like people have been talking about this book FOREVER. I can't believe we still have weeks left! But yes, definitely agree--I can't wait for it!

Matched looks so amazing and I feel like I've been waiting for it forever. Awesome pick. Like you, I'm anxiously waiting for this one.

I think the hype for Matched is overrated though. It's essentially a book about a forbidden romance rather than a story about the dystopia. That being said, it's still a pretty good book,

I think if I had to book to wait on it'd be this one too! Everyone just seems to be gushing about it. :P
