Random Reads is a monthly meme hosted by i'm loving books.
The aim of this meme is to randomly select a book from your to-read
list once per month and then read it at some point during that
particular month. It serves as an attempt to choose the books that
don't get picked first, but that you still want to read eventually!
My January Random Read: Persephone by Kaitlin Bevis
For January's Random Read, I randomly selected my book
by sorting my to-read shelf on Goodreads and then using
random.org to select a random number and . . . voila! It
chose #137, which is Matched by Ally Condie!
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.
