Waiting on Wednesday 5/25: Crossed

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is Crossed by Ally Condie. I read the first in the series, Matched in about a day–I just couldn’t put it down!

In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky — taken by the Society to his certain death — only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia’s quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander — who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia’s heart — change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.

What about you? Have you read Matched? What are you looking forward to reading?

  1. I just finished up Matched this month and can’t wait for this one to be released. Too bad we aren’t at BEA they are giving away over 1000 Signed copies, how cool is that?

  2. Yes, I’m so jealous, Gina! I still have my eye out for contests to win an ARC. Then of course Crossed will probably end with another cliffhanger and we’ll have to wait another year for book 3!

  3. I haven’t read Matched yet. These books look very good, I am adding them to my TBR list. Thanks for posting about them!
