Waiting on Wednesday (2)


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we book bloggers get together and pick our most eagerly awaited upcoming book releases!

My pick for this week:

Reached - (Matched #3)
Release Date: November 13th 2012
Author:  Ally Condie

Cassia faces the ultimate choices in the long-anticipated conclusion to the  Matched Trilogy.
After leaving Society and desperately searching for the Rising--and each other--Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again: Cassia has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. But nothing is as predicted, and all too soon the veil lifts and things shift once again.
In this gripping conclusion to the #1 "New York Times" bestselling Matched Trilogy, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without.


I've really enjoyed the Matched series and while I know some dystopian fans were let down by this series; Ally Condie's unique brand of dystopian-lite has won a place in my heart all the same.   I am quite frankly dying to see how everything will conclude!  What does Condie have in store for us in her final installment?  Will Cassia continue to impress, evolve and finally break free?  What faith awaits Ky? Will he fulfil his destiny? (team Ky!)  And what about Xander (which I really like too!): What will happen with him?  SO many questions and we've waited SO long, but Reached is finally almost within reach :D
 

What book are you anxiously awaiting?  Link me up! :)

  3. @Christina- Xander is SO likeable isn't he? I really took to him right away during 'Matched'...but there's just something about Ky ;-)

    @Amy- Isn't it a spectacular cover?! ♥

    I'm off to check out your picks ladies!

  4. Ah this book/series! I've heard a lot of buzz about this one, some good, some quite the opposite so I'm not sure if I want to read any of them. Thanks for sharing! ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. :)

  5. @biochemguy: you're right, people either love it or hate it >.< I think people who were let down were expecting a dystopian-rush read like Hunger Games & Divergent...I like to call the Matched books Dystopian-Lite ;-) I'm off to check out your blog!
