This weeks WW, is Matched by Ally Condie. I've read good & bad reviews for this book, but the cover is absolutely beautiful & it sounds interesting to me! I ordered it today, so hopefully with all this crazy holidayness, I'll get it next week (:
Reading level: Young Adult
Hardcover: 384 pages
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile (November 30, 2010)
Author: 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.

Having to wait a year between each book is pure torture! haha

It's very obvious that Rose and Dimitri aren't over each other by the end of the first chapter *IMO*. About 70% of the book is Rose reminding herself that she's finished with Dimitri and she's moving on with Adrian.
Spssh, yeah right!
This song was stuck in my head the entire time I was reading the novel. I'm not sure if it's because I'm on a 90's kick at the moment or what! I do think it's very fitting for the Dimitri/Rose relationship though... especially this part:
"I want you to remember
Everything you said
Every driven word
Like a hammer hell to my head
The chemicals between us
The walls that lie between us
Lying in this bed the chemicals displaced
There is no lonelier face
Than lying in this bed"
Oh yeah! Love me some Bush! lol Anyways, I'll try to post my review on Last Sacrifice tomorrow and after that HookBookers is going to go on a mini vacation until all of the craziness that comes along with the holidays settles down!
Can you believe that Christmas is only 4 days away! Yikes!

The biggest thing on my wish list at the moment is:
I can not wait to get my hands on this book! It was pure torture having to wait an entire year for this book to come out and now I can finally see who Rose will choose!
I'm a Adrian fan myself but I still have mad love for Dimitri! So I'll be happy either way lol
