Teaser Tuesday - Privilege (Privilege Series #1) by Kate Brian

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
“I like gray. I feel gray,” Ariana told her, staring straight ahead as they walked.

Privilege (Privilege Series #1) by Kate Brian; Unabridged audio book edition, Narrated by Justine Eyre; (Beginning of the book – sorry no page number available)

            I am excited to share with everyone my first Teaser Tuesday (TT), hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading,  and picked out this dark and fitting quote from Chick Lit Teen novel and audio book, Privilege by Kate Brian.

In Privilege, Ariana Osgood has been sentenced to 20 years to life for the brutal killing of a male classmate but she is determined to get out. Used to the ritz and glamour of a much more posh society than that of a criminal’s, Ariana is determined not to live the rest of her days behind the bars of the Brenda T Trumbull penitentiary for women, especially over what she considers to be “one little mistake”. She has been plotting and planning her escape since her first day in her cell and dreaming with her cell mate, Kaitlynn about what they would do together if they ever got out. Run the streets of Paris? Italy? New York? California? Ariana will stop at nothing to see the light of day again; will she ever get out?

            I’m only about 2 hours into this 6 and a half hour audio book, and I’m already hooked! I can’t wait to find out what Ariana might say or do next. Great main character with a strong lead and a sweet Southern accent to fool everyone who gets in her path….well, almost everyone….

            Check back for my review on Goodreads and here, on my blog, once I complete the audio book in its entirety.
