This is a great romance Sci fi.
Great story that kept me on the edge of my seat even after a second read through. A new story and in depth characters that keep you sucked in. A recomendation for anyone interested in new age, post-war world.
It was a fun read but took me forever to finish it. An interesting take on a dystopian romance and freedom of choice and what lengths one will go to to fight for it. However it was kind of slow paced for me as far as turns of events. Hoping the rest of the series is a little more exciting.
I thought this was a great idea and it was executed well. It was a bit cheesy at times, but what dystopian-teen-romance novel isn't? I'm looking forward to the other books in the series.

Day 13 #AdventRecommends
What if the person you were going to marry was chosen for you? And what if the person you were matched with was the one you could never be with?
This is another of my favourite dystopian novels. I love the concept of it and the gripping way in which it was written....a definite page turner!
A line from that other poem, the Tennyson one, comes to mind suddenly: The flood may bear me far.
If I had kept the poems from Grandfather, I‘d be riding on a flood that I couldn‘t stop. I did what I had to do; I did the right thing. But it is as though the rain outside pours on me, too, eroding my relief and leaving only regret: The poems are gone, and I can never get them back.
All matches are in! Let the stalking begin!!! Remember that opening day is October 31st. If you haven't received your match (or an email from me) please email me.#AllHallowsReadSwap
There are two quotes on this page of the book I wanted to post, so here goes.
"I swallow in surprise, and for a second, I feel an unexpected surge of anger: I didn't get to savor my last bite of cake."
"It is strange how we hold on to the pieces of the past while we wait for our futures."
• Been sitting on this book a while, started last night. What do ya think, have you read it? By the way, I haven't really been sitting on this book...it's been languishing on my shelf 😉 •
"Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage, against the dying light,
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightening they
Do not go gentle into that good night."
It wasn‘t that I disliked this, but there are others in this genre that are better, which tends to make this pale in comparison. There‘s also not a lot of action in this either, which I was okay with, but may make it less appealing to other readers.
I do have the other two in the series on audio though, so I‘ll probably continue on.
