  1. I really enjoyed the first half of Matched, and then I felt like it slowed down. Then again, that might be because I'm team Xander and he was MIA for that last half. I already started Crossed and I'm liking it even more than Matched!

  2. I absolutely adore Matched! I love the feeling of it! The 100 lists are such a great detail that give the books another angle, which I think is the bomb. The covers are fantastic and the writing is spot on. What's not to like?

  3. Matched is one of my favorite books. It's so beautiful - the writing reflects the poetry throughout the book. I always feel like I'm floating along in a dream while I'm reading it. Not to mention the love story. So romantic and sweet. I love that Ally made just one innocent kiss such a powerful moment.

  4. I thought Matched was a bit slow but near the end it really picked up and I loved it.

  5. I loved Matched. And I already read Crossed last week. I just couldn't wait! It was SO good!

  6. I really loved Matched. I'm interested in any type of dystopia novel so I found this book really great. Along with that. was the beautiful way it was written, almost like the whole book was a poem. Beautiful.

  7. Loved Matched! Cannot wait to read Crossed, it's on my TBR (:
