T.J. Burns | 2721 comments Celestine North lives in a society that demands perfection. After she was branded Flawed by a morality court, Celestine's life has completely fractured--all her freedoms gone.

Since Judge Crevan has declared her the number one threat to the public, she has been a ghost, on the run with Carrick--the only person she can trust.

But Celestine has a secret--one that could bring the entire Flawed system crumbling to the ground. A secret that has already caused countless people to go missing.

Judge Crevan is gaining the upper hand, and time is running out for Celestine. With tensions building, Celestine must make a choice: save just herself or to risk her life to save all Flawed people.

And, most important of all, can she prove that to be human in itself is to be Flawed?

Maxximum Reads (maxximumreads) | 8 comments I cannot wait for this one! I loved Flawed and was super mad when it left me hanging! ---- I thought it wasn't going to be available till April though?

Me too. I absolutely LOVED Flawed. I wrote so much during the buddy read -- it inspired me to think, contemplate. I would have given it 5 points if it hadn't been for the abrupt ending, leaving too many unanswered questions. I promised Cecilia I'd reconsider my rating if she answers my questions in the next installments. :D

I know! I felt the same way, Katherine!

The expected publication is April 4th 2017 by Feiwel & Friends. Elizabeth and I have received advanced review copies.

You can request an advanced copy from Netgalley:

Hope you can join us, Katherine!


Ariel (taylortheteacher) | 883 comments I just requested a copy! I hope I get it, I SPED through Flawed and I'm hungry for more!

T.J. Burns | 2721 comments I've had to put this off a few days so I can finish A Shadow Bright and Burning (Kingdom on Fire, #1) by Jessica Cluess , Flunked (Fairy Tale Reform School, #1) by Jen Calonita , and Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel -- all very good books! Has anyone started Perfect yet?

(I want to devote the time and attention to this book that it deserves). :D

I haven't started yet either--other books somehow keep cropping up out of nowhere and getting put ahead of this in priority! I'll be picking it up soonish though!

Oh, good! It's not coming out until April 4th, so we have some time. ;) It is next on my list, though. I'm really looking forward to this -- it's been getting such great reviews.

I see you're reading Ensnared by Rita Stradling on the 22nd. Do you want to start this after? I'd like to read Ensnared too, but I don't want to overcommit (and that's not coming out until December). Just tell me when you want to start Perfect (Flawed, #2) by Cecelia Ahern and I'll drop everything and join you. I don't want to get behind in this one -- As with Flawed (Flawed, #1) by Cecelia Ahern , I'm sure there is a lot of food for thought.

We can start after, ooooor before, or during. I don't have another review due until next week, so while I should be starting that book soon too, I've a bit of free time (which is soooo nice! I work 6 days a week now, 40+ hours, so between work and book review requests....free time? is something I'm totally unfamiliar with these days. LOL)

Really though, just let me know when YOU'RE good to start lol.

T.J. Burns | 2721 comments Lol! Free time? What is this concept you speak of?

Good news! I finished the 3 books I was reading and can start this one at your convenience.

OH YAY! Okay, so I'm currently reading a book that's due for review next week, but I can fit this one in next and start tomorrow or Friday at the latest. Does that work for you?

T.J. Burns | 2721 comments Finished

Perfect was a fantastic read! Everything I hope for in a book and more! Suspense, mystery, unexpected twists and turns, thought-provoking content, intelligent (and at time witty) dialogue, interesting/intriguing characters who experience character growth, and a splash of romance!

I wish I hadn't had to wait a year to read this second book -- the two books would have flowed so seamlessly together. It seems more like one complete book that a duology, and the first book didn't really have an ending. I wondered if the two parts were actually written as one and then separated for marketing purposes.

I should also mention the brilliant writing style. (view spoiler)
