Teaser Tuesday - 5/29/12

This week I'm reading Matched by Ally Condie, recommended by Rebecca Belliston. I put out a request for a more light-hearted YA after finishing a particularly rough book last week, and Rebecca was kind enough to oblige. I'm only 29 pages into it, but it seems to be just what I needed.

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 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.

The rules for Teaser Tuesday are:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
  • Then hit up Should Be Reading to add your link.

And the teaser:

I climb into bed and push away thoughts of the red tablet. For the first time in my life, I'm allowed to dream of Xander.


  1. Oh this has been sitting on my bookshelf for a while now. I really need to get it down and actually read it I think.

  2. Oh! I'm looking forward to read this book too! It sounds great. Interesting teaser btw.

  3. Hope you like it. It's in my top ten favorite YA novels. :)

  4. I love the sound of this book, I've been meaning to read it for ages!

  5. My friend read this, but wasn't the biggest fan of it. So she gave it to me, and I'm planning on reading it at some point haha. Great teaser. Thanks for sharing.

    Feel free to check out my teaser here.

  6. I loved Matched. Crossed, not as much. I look forward to the final book.
