No, I haven't. Who wrote them? Have you started them yet? Might be worth a try still--sometimes my taste in books is way different from the popular opinion.

im now in chapter 9!

I really like the story so far... im not saying anything more until I know where you are. I don't want to accidently say anything, but this .... their "Society" is intriguing me and I want to know more.

I wonder if the voice of cassia (like her thoughts voice) will be changing soon, along with the story? It seems almost robotic (or computerized) to me, but im not sure if its just me or if the author intended it that way. what so you think?

do you feel like Cassia started being kind of defiant out of nowhere? I feel like one minute she was fine, although she has feelings for Ky, and set on marrying Xander. but then bam all of a sudden she hates the society? I feel like there was no gradual realization, it just happened.

I think she was warming up to all the hate. she started to distrust when ky turned up on her match card. then with her g pa and all the things after that she was building up her distrust and didn't realize it while it was happening. so it does seem like she realized it all at once. kinds like she abruptly woke up from a dream.


her "voice" or the authors writing is starting to be less robotic sounding to me.


where are you in the book? have you finished yet? iv not finished but im going to read more tonight.
