Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

“You can’t touch me,” I whisper. I’m lying, is what I don’t tell him. He can touch me, is what I’ll never tell him. But things happen when people touch me. Strange things. Bad things.

No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon. But Juliette has plans of her own. After a lifetime without freedom, she’s finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she’d lost forever.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Shatter Me was a beautifully written novel filled with brilliant and descriptive metaphors that brings the story alive. When I first began the novel I was so amazed at the interesting way Tahereh chose to write the novel. It’s lovely.

To me this book was more of a set up for the other books. Don’t get me wrong, this book was AMAZING! The characters were authentic and were able to be empathize with. And there were so many twist and turns that I was shouting a couple times. But I have a feeling that things about to get real interesting in the next books.

I am definitely excited to see where the character Juliet will go from here. She has so much potential to be something great (I sound a little like Warner now ;). The ending was a nice wrap up and it leaves you wanting to know where the characters will go from there.

It was a great read. I’m excited about starting the next book!

One of my favorite quotes: “I could love you, Juliette—I would treat you like a queen—” – Warner. (There’s just something sincere about those words).
