6. Matched Series by Ally Condie

product, product design, font, product, advertising,

"Matched" comes as a trilogy set in a world where your perfect match is chosen for you based on DNA. This is in an effort to keep the human race from disintegrating into a bunch of useless junk DNA (see the movie, The Last Mimzy for a great story about that). Cassia, our main character, has always believed in the system until she starts falling for a guy that isn't her match. The series follows the two as they struggle against the system. This trilogy really focuses more on the romance than on the unfair dystopian-ness of it all. Despite that, we do see and even fight some of the system flaws. It's a wonderful read and a beautiful romance.
