Thoughts for Thursday

If you read The Hunger Games trilogy, did it make you want to read more young adult books?

I loved The Hunger Games trilogy! It's like nothing else I've ever read before. If Suzanne Collins writes more I would definitely try it. I'm not sure I'm going to get into young adult reading in general, though. Karen did mention a new trilogy that might be interesting. Have you heard of it? The first book (Nov 2010) is called Matched and the second (Nov 2011) is called Crossed. The third (Nov 2012) is still Untitled.

Matched by Ally Condie

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.
