The Perfect Match: Summer 2015 Edition



summer 2015 Edition

The Perfect Match: A seasonal feature where I play matchmaker but with books! What happens when you take Book A and combine it with Book B?  The answer is Book C!

Ever since I started officially doing this feature, I’ve been creating book hybrids in my mind every time I read. Once you start, it’s rather hard to stop! I have a ongoing note on my phone for when the inspiration hits.


Why This Match?

The characters in Incarceron have to solve their own maze that has its own cast of colourful characters so that connection should be obvious. Why Divergent? That’s a bit of a spoiler for later in the series 😉 but in a more general way, in Divergent, the initiation situation involving a group of young people reminds me a lot of the group dynamic in The Maze Runner.


Why This Match?

I could have easily paired numerous books for The Book of Ivy but I felt like these two were the best. Breathe is about a city that is within a dome struggling between the halves and the halves not (similar to the two rival families in BOI). Again, a bit of a spoiler for anyone who hasn’t read Delirium but the political situation and the scenario Lena finds herself in is very reminiscent of The Book of Ivy.

Why This Match?

The support group for terminal ill people in The Fault in Our Stars is very similar to the support group Saylor (One Last Song) finds herself in. But why is Saylor there? The answer is pretty similar to The Narrator’s from Fight Club.


Agree or Disagree with my picks?
