One of the things I love most about my job as a writer is that I can justify the hours I spend reading teen books. It’s all in the name of research! At least that’s what I tell my husband when I’ve got the bedroom light on long into the wee hours of the night.
My newest book, which I am nearly finished with, is Matched by Ally Condie. Dystopian love stories seems to be all the rage now. And for good reason…they’re great!
Matched is no exception. I love the characters, the imagery Ally Condie uses to paint her futuristic world and the confusing love triangle. I know some people hate love triangles but NOT ME! Give me a good love mystery and I’m happy. But don’t give it away too easily. I love to unexpected.
For anyone looking for a good read for themselves or their teenager girl I suggest Matched. Ally Condie’s sequel, Crossed, is next on my Must-Read list.
