The Glimpse Blog Tour: Book Trailer & Giveaway! (UK Only!)

The Glimpse by Claire Merle
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Release date: June 7th 2012

In a near future, society is segregated according to whether people are genetically disposed to mental illness. 17-year-old Ana has been living the privileged life of a Pure due to an error in her DNA test. When the authorities find out, she faces banishment from her safe Community, a fate only thwarted by the fact that she has already been promised to Pure-boy Jasper Taurell.

Jasper is from a rich and influential family and despite Ana’s condition, wants to be with her. The authorities grant Ana a tentative reprieve. If she is joined to Jasper before her 18th birthday, she may stay in the Community until her illness manifests. But if Jasper changes his mind, she will be cast out among the Crazies. As Ana’s joining ceremony and her birthday loom closer, she dares to hope she will be saved from the horror of the City and live a ‘normal’ life. But then Jasper disappears.

Led to believe Jasper has been taken by a strange sect the authorities will not interfere with, Ana sneaks out of her well-guarded Community to find him herself. Her search takes her through the underbelly of society, and as she delves deeper into the mystery of Jasper’s abduction she uncovers some devastating truths that destroy everything she has grown up to believe.

  1. Ooo! The book trailer looks AMAZING! I've been reading mixed reviews on the Glimpse but after watching the trailer, I think I might need to add this book to my TBR and hopefully get the chance to read it soon!

    Thank you for sharing the book trailer of Glimpse with us, Leanna! <3

  2. Thank you! The trailer is awesome. :D

  3. Though I'm a little taken aback by the classification of mentally ill people as 'crazies', I'm curious as to how it plays out in the book. And the simplicity of the cover is refreshing. Thanks for letting me know about this one!

  4. You were the first person to tell me about this book and get me excited for it, so it only makes sense that you're the first person to show me the trailer! And it looks SO COOL! I still really want to read this book even though it's very controversial on Goodreads. I think I'll have to check out your review first! ;)

    Thanks for sharing this, Leanna! :) <3

  5. Entered! Thanks for the giveaway, I'm really curious about this one!
