* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
---------------------------------------------
This week, I've chosen a small snippet from The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau.

The Testing (The Testing, #1)"Tomas sits back and only adds the occasional comment.He, too, is observing - weighing their laughter and their silences. Tomas notices me watching. Quickly, I look away as my cheeks burn. not that Tomas isn't used to being looked at. Most girls in our class would spend the entire school day watching him instead of the blackboard. Since his assigned seat was directly behind mine, I never had the distraction. But I'd have to be blind not to notice the way laughter and the single dimple in his left cheek transform his angular face. More than once my finger have itched to brush back the lock of hair that always falls across his forehead. not that I'd ever have the courage to try. Which is okay. Boys and dating have never been on my priority list. And they certainly can't be now."

You can add the book to your Goodreads list HERE! It will be out in the UK on August 1st and it's already available in the US so definitely check it out if you love dystopia.

Have a good week,
Sam :D

  2. This books looks so good! I had been emailed from Netgalley a month ago, saying that I had been chosen to be an early reviewer of The Testing but, you know what? I forgot to download my copy and now I can't download it anymore -.-

    Great teaser, by the way ^^
