CLOSED Giveaway: Slated by Teri Terry

Slated by Teri Terry
Dystopian, 448 pages
Published May 3rd 2012 by Orchard Books in the UK
Expected Publication: April 2013 in US and Canada
Kyla’s memory has been erased,
her personality wiped blank,
her memories lost for ever.

She’s been Slated.

The government claims she was a terrorist, and that they are giving her a second chance - as long as she plays by their rules. But echoes of the past whisper in Kyla’s mind. Someone is lying to her, and nothing is as it seems. Who can she trust in her search for the truth?

I have an extra copy of Slated, so I thought I'd share this fascinating book with one of you lovelies.

Make sure to stop by my review and my interview with Teri and leave some love! =)


  1. I always love a good dystopia and mystery, so of course I want to read Slated!

  2. I found it interesting in her interview that the backstory for Slated actually mirrored real events. It means it wasn't far-fetched at all .

  3. I want to read Slated because the premise sounds interesting and unique (and I admit, I love the cover :D)

  4. I love the premise of this book and I admit I have a thing for dystopian books. And the fact that this books sounds so much different from all the other books I've read lately makes me want to read it even more! I found it interesting that she has taken inspiration in real-life events here in Europe as well.

  5. I'm still a BIG fan of anything dystopian. This one sounds super intriguing!

  6. Thanks for the giveaway! I love dystopias. :)

  7. DYSTOPIA! I read all of them. Also, it sounds pretty creepy, so yay!

  8. I love dytopian/sci-fi and Slated sounds fantastic. And it's great that she did so much research for the book.

  9. I really like Dystopia, the classics and the YA, but I like those ones most, that feel like they could happen. So after reading your review, this book sounds awesome!

  10. I would like to read this book because when I was a teenager I used to wish I could lose my memory. That and it sounds interesting.

  11. +JMJ+

    Of all the YA Dystopian novels that have come out lately, Slated is the only one that seems to have tapped into the same paranoid vein that George Orwell bled so expertly with Nineteen Eighty-Four. Why wouldn't I want to read it??? =P

    Thanks for the giveaway! =)

  12. Thank you for making it international!
    I'm really interested in reading Slated because it seems like a good Distophian one, full of mystery and suspense. I've read so many good things about the book and it surely on my to-read list! :)
    And also.. the cover is georgeus and so creepy at the same time! ahah

  13. I love dystopian books and this one has been on my TBR list for a while I have read a lot of good things about it and can't wait to read it!!!

  14. I loved the movie Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind and this book reminds me of it. Of course, the plot is completely different but basically you wipe away "bad memories" in both, so this automatically made my tbr list when I saw your rewiev on goodreads.

  15. I've read a lot of great comments about this book and now I'm really intrigued by the story.
    Thanks a lot for the giveaway!

  16. I'm interesting in seeing how Kyla is going to be like in such a world. It sounds scary and interesting.

  17. I'm interested in reading Slated because it makes me wonder if memories are crucial to identity or if the present state of mind is more important.

  18. Okay I admit it -- the first thing that caught my attention about this is the author's name. And if I had the chance to ask her anything, I would probably say, "So... how'd your parents pick the name Teri Terry?"

    But the book itself looks really interesting. I find it intriguing that real-world circumstances started sounding familiar AFTER Ms. Terry started working on her book, similar enough that she had to take a break from writing! That sounds like an intense and fascinating book.

  19. Ohh just because I read the description and OMG it's fascinating!... I've never hear about it.. but believe me, now it's on my list!! for shure!

  20. Teri gives a great explanation for why we appreciate dystopian fiction. If her interview answers are that well-written, I can't wait to try out her novel.

  21. I'm a sucker for dystopia books, and besides this one sounds fresh and unique. I've also heard nothing but great things about it.

  22. It sounds really interesting!

  23. I love dystopian novels, so this sounds like something I would love!
