Reveiw: Shatter Me By: Tahereh Mafi

SHATTER ME : ( Shatter Me #1)
By: Tahereh Mafi

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."  
Intriguing, electrifying, compelling, and breathtaking. Shatter Me was beyond anything i ever expected it would be, it was just so fascinating to experience. Tahereh Mafi's writing was absolutely beautiful, you would say poetic even. The world she created was so unique.. so fresh. It was terrifying, tragic, and different. I absolutely loved it! The story was so believable it felt like i was actually living there. Shatter Me will leave you speechless!

Juliette is a strong well built character. Shes been known as an outcast to everyone since she was a child, her parents wouldn't even touch her. No matter how the kids treated her at school Juliette always had a kind heart to help them out and to forgive them of what they had done to her. Things has gotten really hard for her after she had been locked up in the government facility for 264 days, yet Juliette was always so brave and full of hope.

Then there's Adam. At first Adam was a jerk even tho Juliette was constantly nice to him he would still treat her with disrespect. His bad attitude has caused Juliette a great distaste for him but who knew it was all just a show. Turns out hes actually super sweet, caring, and very very attractive. Adam will capture your heart from the beginning to the end.

One of the characters i loved the most in this book was Kenji. Ah Kenji, when he comes into the book he would always lighten up my mood, hes just so funny. I loved how he would joke around about Juliette and make compliments about her that would make Adam so crazily mad at him. I hope we will get to see more of him in the next book!

Lastly there's Warner the cruel, powerful, and evil bad guy. There's something about him that makes me feel so drawn to him but i just don't know what. In some scenes i just felt so sorry for him and wanted to be on his side but then the others just made me want to rip his head off. As we get to know Warner better maybe we'll find out what caused him to be so cruel.

Shatter Me is full of surprises, and romance that will leave you begging for more! I just fell in love with this book on the first page and for sure you will too.This book is a must-read!

I rated this 5 out of 5 stars!
