Amazon’s Omnivoracious blog has posted its top holiday picks for Young Adult readers, which includes the Matched Trilogy Box Set!
Matched Trilogy Box Set: This is a series tailor-made for Hunger Games readers. Romance and action in a Big Brother society, and I’m not giving anything away to tell you that it starts with a teen girl, Cassia, who is shown her expected marriage match–but for a brief second another boy’s face appears on the screen. Hmmm… The story builds from there, each book adding a new layer and new voices to the narrative. Addictive reading.
The rest of the list consists of the John Green Box Set, Lauren Conrad Beauty, Not Exactly A Love Story, The Hobbit (Deluxe Collector’s Edition), and Star Wars: A Galatic Pop-up Adventure. You can see the reasons for each pick here.
Anorie’s Whimsies on Etsy (aka our very own Annie!) is one of the few retailers with fantastic original Matched themed jewelry. She’s too modest to have ever mentioned her own jewelry on the site, but we love it so much that we just had to!
We’re especially attached to this beautiful pendant featuring Cassia’s poem to Ky, the featured lines of which originally appear in Crossed:
“I climb into the dark for you
Are you waiting in the stars for me?”
Here’s the last in our month-long Quote of the Day series leading up to Reached! Tomorrow we will all be able to reach out and grab a copy of Ally Condie’s highly anticipated new novel!
We’ve got some other good news, too: We’ll be announcing that Matched contest TONIGHT and posting up our spoiler-free review of Reached TOMORROW! Keep your eyes peeled!
“I have a sense that we have not yet arrived, that we are still reaching. For each other. For who we are meant to be.“
With just 19 days until the release of Reached, The Rising asks that all rebels remind themselves of their origins by reading or re-reading Crossed, the second novel in the Matched Trilogy!
If you’ve fallen behind in your reading or just want a refresher course, there’s two steps The Rising suggests you take. First, watched the Crossed book trailer:
Second, read a Scribd sample of Crossed to get started:
We’d also like to take this time to announce that The Fandom, as part of Penguin Teen’s Silk and Paper Campaign, will be giving away some great Matched swag starting November 1st! Be prepared!
