Book Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

     I have been waiting to read this book ever since several of my blog followers had raved about it when it came out.  Myself being a recently big Hunger Games fan.  I was really excited to see if Shatter Me would be as great as I had been told and if I would have just as hard time putting it down.

Shatter Me is a fabulous read!  The writer has such a unique writing style, and for myself it was like nothing I had read before.
Not only are you reading it through the main character Juliette's point of view, because of the authors strikingly unique writing style you get to feel like you are inside her head.  It really made for an interesting approach to a novel.

Juliette has been locked up in solitary for 264 days, and before that had lived a life of pretty much the same.  Always wishing for the ability to be normal, to be able to be touched without very, very bad things happening.  Will she ever find a way out? A friend? A reason to want to live and feel human again?  A reason to fight back?

This book not only kept me turning pages and wanting more.  But also gave me the perfect combination of futuristic science fiction and romance.  This and books like these are the reason I absolutely love YA these days!  Shatter Me created those wow and indecisive thoughts throughout that keep me enjoying every storyline twist.  I adored the good guys, and even loved the bad guys.

The author creates such an interesting twist of events at the end, I can honestly say I cannot wait for the sequel to see what direction the author decides to go with it.  I am hooked, and enjoyed loved Shatter Me!!

  7. It's very rare for a novel to make readers love the bad guys and I think that if an author has achieved that, then the book is worthy of the bestseller list. I've only read positive reviews for this book and cannot wait to get my won copy and finally read it. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us:)

    Best wishes!

  15. I LOVE LOVE LOVED this book! It read like poetry to me. And you could just feel her angst and inability to trust herself radiate through Tahereh's writing style (the strike throughs and the repetition.)
