you've been matched

remember my little segment called 'turn off the boob tube and read'? well it's making its comeback tour. have you heard of 'matched' by ally condie? she's a so. utah girl [what! what!] and prob bff's with stephanie meyers. i bet they just go out and get froyos and poof up their hair while abbreviating phrases all day long...well that's what i'd do if i was bff with stephanie meyers.

i'd describe matched as a less violent [and riveting but also awesome] version of the hunger games. it's about a girl named cassie who lives in a futuristic society that basically dictates your whole life, limiting the number of songs or poems that exist, what jobs you can do, and most importantly, who you are marry. cassie goes to her matching banquet and finds out she's matched to her best friend xander...but there's a slight mix-up and she's also matched to ky who shouldn't have been matched to anyone because he's considered lower class in the society.

my friend meghan introduced the books to me and the second one, crossed, just came out. i'm devouring it like a starved for attention toddlers & tiara's runner up. it's pretty awesome- so turn off that boob tube and READ!

ps- any las vegas library card holders - make sure your card is up to date. being a library member not only makes you awesome, but it also entitles you to free books, movies, and cds to check out. oh, and did i mention you get 5 free downloads of music a week? that's right people- free music. and it's not crappy stuff either- i've gotten all the current glee songs [hey! that's not crappy!], some kellie pickler, foster the people, foo fighters, natasha bedingfield, train- you name it. [the site for music is here- you just enter you library card and pin]- you're welcome world.

Pin It!
