Ally Condie and Kami Garcia Interview: MATCHED and UNBREAKABLE

Ally Condie and Kami Garcia took turns interviewing each other about their projects on Kindle Post recently!

Kami Garcia’s new book, UNBREAKABLE, was published October 1st and Ally was one of the first to enjoy it, but Kami is also a huge fan of the MATCHED trilogy, so she had some questions too.


The two cover the end of the MATCHED series and what it meant for Ally:

KG: I went through a mini-depression after finishing Reached, the last book in your Matched trilogy, and I know I’m not alone. It’s so hard to say good-bye to a series you love. What was it like to finish writing the series?

AC: It actually felt good to finish the series, like I had taken the characters to college or something and I knew they were ready and that it was time for me to let go. I think the characters are what I will miss most about that universe. I spent the better part of five years with Cassia, Ky, and Xander, and so it’s a little sad not to spend time in their world anymore.
