This week in my mailbox...

Matched (Matched #1) by Ally Condie

Goodreads Description:
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.


I've already finished this fabulous book and what a great read it was! I love powerful stories that have you questioning everything. I highly recommend it!

The Atlantis Complex (Artemis Fowl #7) by Eoin Colfer

Goodreads Description:
Artemis has committed his entire fortune to a project he believes will save the planet and its inhabitants, both human and fairy. Can it be true? Has goodness taken hold of the world’s greatest teenage criminal mastermind?

Captain Holly Short is unconvinced, and discovers that Artemis is suffering from Atlantis Complex, a psychosis common among guilt-ridden fairies -- not humans -- and most likely triggered by Artemis’s dabbling with fairy magic. Symptoms include obsessive-compulsive behavior, paranoia, multiple personality disorder and, in extreme cases, embarrassing professions of love to a certain feisty LEPrecon fairy.

Unfortunately, Atlantis Complex has struck at the worst possible time. A deadly foe from Holly’s past is intent on destroying the actual city of Atlantis. Can Artemis escape the confines of his mind -- and the grips of a giant squid -- in time to save the underwater metropolis and its fairy inhabitants?


I just cracked open this little jewel, but know I won't be disappointed. Whenever Artemis Fowl is concerned, there is bound to be an unmitigated disaster.

That's it for today...I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Wonderful books. I've seen Matched around a lot. Sounds good.

I'm waiting for Matched to be sent with Final Sacrifice. I emailed the online bookstore to remind them since I ordered the books back in June, and I don't want my order to be forgot. ;)

Of course we both know which book I'll read first. :D
