Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, where bloggers can spotlight and share "upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating".

This week I'm waiting on:

Matched by Allie Condie
"In the Society, Officials decide. Who you love. Where you work. When you die.

Cassia has always trusted their choices. It’s barely any price to pay for a long life, the perfect job, the ideal mate. So when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is the one . . . until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now Cassia is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one else has ever dared follow—between perfection and passion.

Matched is a story for right now and storytelling with the resonance of a classic."

Matched is one of the most highly anticipated books of the year, with a 7-figure deal, after publishing houses battled for the rights to the book. Penguin snapped up the book deal, and it is due to be released in late 2010.

I couldn't wait to read it after I heard about it from Penguin's BTL site - dystopia, danger and decisions? Totally my thing...I can't wait for it to come out!! ><

What are you waiting on this week?
