Waiting and Breathless Reads

Image taken from Google.
I am extremely excited for the release of Matched by Ally Condie later this week. Wednesday, November 30th to be exact. Yes, I am counting the days, don't judge. :)

Hopefully, I will be able to post a review of Matched next week, after reading it. But, in the mean time, to soothe you voracious readers, I present Breathless Reads. (click link to go to site)
Breathless reads is a project started by the Penguin Group publishing company. (I'm assuming it's in the hopes of getting teens to read more due to the recent spike in demand for "paranormal" or "dystopian" books.) Every book is guaranteed to leave you "breathless" and craving even more. (So, be careful my chronic book addicts. i.e. me)

This program, sold as a boxed set of books, features the novels The Eternal Ones by Kirsten Miller, The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff, Nightshade by Andrea Cremer, Matched by Ally Condie and Sapphique (sequel to Incarceron) by Catherine Fisher. From the looks of the website, it's quite possible it's a type of paranormal book club for teens. (Which would be awesome, by the way.) But, I'm not certain, so don't quote me on that.

Though I am certain, it is a very cool website with very awesome links to cool activities involving the books. For instance, clicking on the Matched book takes you to a new page where you can be "matched" with your mate on your facebook. (application won't post unless you ask it to) It's really funny, I spend a lot of time on there. And The Eternal Ones (Which I am currently reading) has a couple of cool book trailers to view as well.

Now, go check out the site! It is quite wonderful. And has a new book being brought into its folds soon called Across the Universe by Beth Revis. Which sounds like a very interesting space/ sci-fi novel.
This is all for now.

Happy reading to you all!
