Teaser Tuesday – 8th March 2016


TeaserTeaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat.
Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This is my choice of the day:
Flawed by Cecelia Ahern
6%: I understand the rules. But today I feel that the rules have been blurred, because today they were flawedliterally on my front doorstep.

BLURB : Celestine North lives a perfect life. She’s a model daughter and sister, she’s well-liked by her classmates and teachers, and she’s dating the impossibly charming Art Crevan.
But then Celestine encounters a situation in which she makes an instinctive decision. She breaks a rule and now faces life-changing repercussions. She could be imprisoned. She could be branded. She could be found FLAWED. In a society where perfection is paramount and mistakes are punished, Celestine decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

This is an ARC I’m reading, provided by NetGalley and is Ahern’s first foray into YA. It’s early days, but so far, so good! I’m really enjoying it…

  1. Aah from the description you put in your comment on my blog I had a feeling it might be this! Very excited for this book as I’ve previously been a huge fan of Cecelia Ahern’s ‘chick lit’ novels and I’ve recently developed a lot of love for the YA dystopian genre. I’ve got a review copy and will be reading this next – your teaser is very intriguing, thanks for sharing!

  2. I really like the sound of this book! I have yet to read anything of her work, but I have a copy of The Marble Collector on my TBR pile. Good to hear you are enjoying Flawed!

    • So far, I’m favourably impressed. I enjoyed Where Rainbow’s End, If You Could See Me Now and The Book of Tomorrow, but foundered with The Girl in the Mirror, and hadn’t read any more of her work since. But when I saw this was YA dystopian near-future, I couldn’t resist:)
