Matched
Matched - Ally Condie The worst thing about this book is that it's boring. Nothing really happens until about 80%. Everything else is just kind of a slow burn.

There is a love triangle going on. Though I'm kind of glad it doesn't get super annoying and Xander actually helps Cassia out in the end.
Overall though there was too much about Ky and not enough about Cassia. Ultimately it is a story about a woman pining after a boy.

I don't know what the diversity quotient is, given of course that nobody's skin is describe so I assume white.
Girl hate was on the low to non-existant end. There doesn't seem to be a lot of sexism either..only because the characters really do nothing.

So if you like slow books where not much happens, that are sort of sci-fi-y 1984 big brother is watching. Then this book might be for you.

Book 16/100: Crossed by Ally Condie
Crossed - Ally Condie

Usually I like second books in trilogies, but this one feels a bit like it suffers from the "second-book slump," or perhaps from the industry's insistence that authors make trilogies/series out of books that are strongest as standalones.

This book was entertaining enough, and while I enjoyed learning more about the world involved, I didn't find it nearly as compelling as "Matched." But then, I do prefer dystopias that take place in a more "insular" setting rather than those that are more adventurous/sprawling/let's take down the system, etc.

I did like the new characters introduced in this volume and found Indy particularly intriguing.
