(DNF) Crossed- Ally Condie

Written By: Kellie - Jun• 02•12

Synopsis: Chasing down an uncertain future, Cassia makes her way to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky–taken by the Society to his sure death–only to find that he has escaped into the majestic, but treacherous, canyons. On this wild frontier are glimmers of a different life and the enthralling promise of a rebellion. But even as Cassia sacrifices every thing to reunite with Ky, ingenious surprises from Xander may change the game once again.
Narrated from both Cassia’s and Ky’s point of view, this hotly anticipated sequel to Matched will take them both to the edge of Society, where nothing is as expected and crosses and double crosses make their path more twisted than ever. -Goodreads

Review: I tried, and tried but I just couldn’t get into this book and ultimately had to decide I didn’t want to keep trying to get through it. I think this is my first ever DNF post, definitely the first one this year.

I recently read something where another blogger (unfortunately, I don’t remember who… I want to say it was The Story Siren, but I’m not 100% sure) was talking about Second Book Syndrome, where the second book in a story suffers because the primary couple has been separated for plots sake. This is exactly what my problem is with Crossed. Bah!

Obviously, I can’t get too far into anything as I didn’t finish this book and it wouldn’t really be fair to comment but it wasn’t for me. Now more than ever, be sure to check out the second opinion reviews below as a lot of people loved this book, so if it’s one you’ve been dying to read, don’t let me scare you off.
