Oprah Winfrey put Rhonda Byrne in the map. The concept behind The Secret is not new. It's not suppose to be new. Shonda states it clearly: these are teachings that come from ancient times. It can look pretty new for the western countries but the eastern culture built around this knowledge. It's not for nothing that in eastern countries they think equilibrium is so important. That's why they are so polite. Many times we, as westerners, raise our eyebrows to that but karma, zen and flow are not empty words (nor should they be to us).

Matched Series focus on a dystopian society. The Society controls everything even people are matched according to genome, mutual interests, physical aspects (the principle being that that's the most efficient way to maximize the odds of happiness). It all seems natural to Cassie. She is going to be with Xander and there is nothing weird about that until she sees the face of Ky Markham. They tell her that that was a malfunction, Xander continues to be the one for her but can Cassie go back to the way things were or is the rebellion gene going to be awaken in her?

Rick Riordan is a big deal in young adult genre. His Series Percy Jackson and the Olympians reached mythological proportions. So, coming up with a Series that "is sort of the same but then again it is not, so you should definitely check it out" it's not the easiest task in the world. Riordan managed to do a pretty decent job. He created three interesting characters with Jason, Leo and Piper. The books are packed with action and humor and the pages fly by.
