I finished Matched by Ally Condie last night!!! It was brilliant! I was intrigued from beginning to end, I took extra long lunch breaks to sneak another chapter or two. A world unlike any other sweeps you off of your feet and you begin to wonder what a world would be like when all the decisions were made for you. The time and detail that went into this story made it absolutely delectable. November 30th you better be at those bookstore doors ready to buy your copy. Trust me you will not be disappointed, the only thing you'll want after your done is the second installment!
Thank you Blue Willow Bookshop for allowing me to borrow the book!!!
Real World News:
I applied to college last night. Yup I took the plunge, I should start in the fall, I'll be a part-time student while I still work full-time. This will mean that once school starts I will have to ration my time more wisely making sure to leave blogging and writing time in the mix of all the other chaos. I know you'll all be there to support me!
