This is a series where once you get into it, you cannot put it down. At all. Regardless of your age, how long it took you to read it, etc., the fact and the matter is this is an original, engrossing storyline. With a book, when you literally cannot stop thinking about it, when you feel like you're in it, it's an amazing feeling. It's why I love reading. And these are books where that is guaranteed to occur. Honestly shocking, interesting, romantic — I adore them. They keep you guessing. Then leave you in tears. But when words and characters can touch a reader like that, it deserves recognition. It's incredible. If only they were a tad longer! They go by ridiculously fast! Of course, the wait is horrible. But I'll manage. Looking forward to it, absolutely. And when the film comes out at some point... I have high expectations.
I honestly didn't think this book series were very good. Matched was good, Crossed, that book was so hard for me to read. I can read a book with 500 pages in a couple hours. This book took me like three days t get halfway through the book. It bored me so much that i gave the book back to my friend
