Waiting on Wednesday (5): Reached (Matched #3) by Ally Condie

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
that showcases our most anticipated upcoming releases.

Title: Reached (Matched #3)
Author: Ally Condie
Publisher:  Dutton Childrens Books
Expected Publication: November 13, 2012
 Amazon |  B&NThe Book Depository

Cassia faces the ultimate choices in the long-anticipated conclusion to the "New York Times" bestselling Matched Trilogy.

After leaving Society and desperately searching for the Rising--and each other--Cassia and Ky have found what they were looking for, but at the cost of losing each other yet again: Cassia has been assigned to work for the Rising from within Society, while Ky has been stationed outside its borders. But nothing is as predicted, and all too soon the veil lifts and things shift once again.

In this gripping conclusion to the #1 "New York Times" bestselling Matched Trilogy, Cassia will reconcile the difficulties of challenging a life too confining, seeking a freedom she never dreamed possible, and honoring a love she cannot live without.


I was the only person in my circle of friends who loved and appreciated Crossed, Book 2, in the Matched series.  I hope everyone will be a huge fan of Reached!  I am super excited, but also sad to see the end of one of my favorite series. 
What book are YOU waiting to get your hands on? 
I'd love to know, so leave me a link in the comments!


  1. I haven't read Matched yet (except for part of the Michele audiobook version which I MUST get my hands on!!!) We must discuss the negative response to the middle book, but I have a feeling I shall LOVE ALL THREE!! xo

  2. I haven't started this series yet, but since the third ones being released in a few weeks I'll definitely need to start!

  3. Hmm... I tried to get into this series but it totally wasn't for me. :( Certainly doesn't mean it isn't for you, though. I hope that the book ends up being everything you could possibly hope it would be. Enjoy!

    My WoW,

  13. Nice pick, Michele! I haven't yet read the second book. I guess a lot of the mixed reviews put me off slightly so I never got around to it in time. :D

  14. We picked the same book this week! You're right, Crossed was a disappointment for a lot of Matched fans but I loved it just like you! I'm really excited for Reached & I hope we enjoy it when it comes out :)
