I enjoyed your review of Matched, and have always love The Wave, and even teach it in my 8th grade class from time to time. I loved your review of it too. Hope you have a great week!

Happy Monday Helene! I see you have read matched! I am going to check out your review, so many people have read that lately!

Jennifer--Thanks for stopping by. I went to your site to read your It's Monday and I couldn't see any way to leave comments...

Maree--You have an amazing list on your weekly meme!

Jan--I also spoke about the Wave in my world history class. It would be a great book to teach in an English class as well.

Aleetha--That's funny; I don't think of my reading as heavy, but I guess it is. I really get drawn into those type of books

Sheila--Thank you for stopping by

I really enjoyed reading Matched. Have a fab week! My It's Monday is here.
Come and link reviews of books with a TV/Movie Adaptation on this week's Read My Review

Alitareads--I do recommend Matched; it's science-fiction without being to science-fictiony (if that makes any sense)

Trillian--I'm glad to hear you liked Matched as well. It seems to be all over the blogosphere lately
