"Juliette hasn't touched anyone in exactly 264 days. The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal. As long as she doesn't hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old-girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don't fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war- and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she's exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.
In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as The Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel." -Goodreads
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi is an AMAZING book. You know how there is all this hype on the book right?? It's because this book is SO DARN GOOD! Oh my goodness!
Juliette is one of those characters that you can see her progress through out the book. When you first start reading Juliette is put in a mental institution because people think she's crazy when by putting her in the institution she becomes crazy herself. Every time Juliette talks to Adam she gets better little by little until finally by the very end she is actually confident about herself. I really liked that about the book.
Holy cow, holy cow, holy cow!!! Adam=AWESOME! Adam is so amazing that he's right up there with Etienne on the Swoon Worthy boy list! No stinkin' joke. Adam is the total package. He's cute, he's sweet to Juliette, and he's funny! :) He's not like Patch, from Hush,Hush, who makes the girl he's in love with uncomfortable. Sorry... I still can't get over that.
This book had no flaws what so ever, and I read the ARC! Tahereh did an amazing job on this book. I don't think I've read this good of a book in a while. It was nice to be able to read this book after Hush,Hush just because I didn't know what to think. I was all confused, whereas when I read Shatter Me, I instantly knew that, I LOVED THIS BOOK!
Even though Warner was the bad guy, at some points I felt bad for him... and then I'd hate him again... but that's not the point. I think that Tahereh wanted you to feel for Warner. He was a man who loved power but had no one to love. So yes, I did feel bad for a bad man. Then by the end I hated him again. So, all is good with the world.
I read this book in a day and was always turning pages for more. I did take ONE break from this book because my family was going on a bike ride and I had been laying around on my bed all day reading... I needed to be active for a little bit! I had to pull away from this book, and let me tell you, once you get into it, you can't get out. Not easy.
I DEFINITELY give this book 5 out of 5 diva crowns. It makes me all happy inside! I can't believe that the people who don't have the ARC have to wait until NOVEMBER!
Now, that isn't the end of my post. Oh no. I have a little surprise for you all. I am going to give AWAY my ARC of Shatter Me....SIGNED. One of you DOESN'T have to wait until November! WOO HOO FOR NO WAITING!
I had a hard time figuring out whether or not I should give it away. The reason is, my mom got it from BEA and got to meet Tahereh and my mom got it signed. So, I didn't know if I wanted to giveaway my signed copy or not. But I decided that it would be selfish of me to NOT give it away. I need to share this amazing book. So if you win, it will say my name in it ;) but you will also have Tahereh's signature!! (Don't worry, I'm photo copying the signature for me and I'm gonna put it in the book I buy when it comes out in November!) WOO!
