What I'm Reading

Last month I borrowed the book Matched from my friend for some reading material while on the airplane to San Francisco. I loved it. It is a book that takes place in a dystopian future where Society arranges and makes every life decision for you. The Society takes "data" and matches you with a marriage partner they think is best. I couldn't put the book down, it is so well written and captures you at every twist and turn.
 
After finishing the first book I immediately needed to get my hands on the second book, Crossed. My friend had that book but was lending it to someone else so I literally ran to the library to get it. I couldn't wait  for that person to finish it! I needed the second book now. Crossed is about the main character's journey to find her love and search for something outside of  the Society. I heard that it didn't get as great as reviews as the first book but honestly I liked it just as well. I love being able to continue the story that I am already involved in.
 
 
I finished Crossed and was hungry for more but Oh, Wait! The third and final book didn't come out until November 13th. I got my mom hooked on the series and as soon as the book was on sale we went to Deseret book to buy it. I started reading it the other day and haven't been able to stop. I love it and cannot wait to see how the author ends the series.
 
 
Obviously I don't want to give away too many details because I want YOU to go out and start reading this series. If you loved Hunger Games or Twiligh you WILL love this series as well. It is probably more like Hunger Games but such a fun and easy read. Oh, and I hear rumors that they will be made into movies. Can't wait!  As soon as I am finished with the series I will need something new to start. What are you currently reading? Any suggestions?
