If you follow me on social media, you may already know I am a huge fan of books. I have always got a book on the go, and frequently read several in a week.
I have been a massive fan of Cecelia Ahern for well over a dozen years, and have read all of her books to date.
Flawed is Cecelia’s first book aimed at Young Adults, so I was a little apprehensive when I started reading it as I had no idea what to expect.
The story focuses on Celestine North, who appears to have it all. Her boyfriend is the son of the local Judge, she’s clever, has her life planned out and seems happy.
By chapter 4, you know her life and the lives of those around her are not as perfect as they seem, and Celestine’s life quickly spirals out of control.
Without giving too much away, I want to say this book was impossible to put down. I finished it in less than 24 hours, and then read the follow up book in under 24 hours, too.
This book took me on an emotional rollercoaster. I literally cried, laughed, felt sick and felt my heart race on several occasions. It is gripping, overwhelming and thought provoking.
If I could give perspective readers two tips, they would be:
Don’t start reading unless you have time to finish it quickly as you’ll find it hard to pull yourself away.
Make sure you have the follow up book, Perfect on standby – you’ll want to read it the second you put Flawed down.
I have never given Dystopian novels a chance before, but will definitely be looking out for more after this.
I’d give the book 5/5 and definitely recommend it to anyone age 16 and over.
Why not check if your local library has a copy for you to borrow?
Reading doesn’t have to be an expensive hobby!
