This is a feature/meme where I choose a book each week leading up to Christmas and say why it's made it onto my wishlist. I'd love to see what books everyone else is hoping to get (maybe I'll add a few of them to my own list!) I'll be posting my pick each Monday, but feel free to link up and visit other people's posts all through the week.
It's the last one of these before Christmas!! Just a few more days now...anyway, my final pick is:
Crossed by Ally Condie
"The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogyI really enjoyed the first in this series (read my review of Matched here) and am looking forward to seeing how Cassia's tale continues in Crossed! I've been avoiding reviews of this one for fear of getting spoiled, so I hope it lives up to the hype :D
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."
