Book Review | Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)

Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publisher: HarperCollins
Page Number: 388
Genre: Dystopian
Publication Date: November 15, 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads: 
I have a curse.
I have a gift.

I am a monster.
I'm more than human. 

My touch is lethal.
My touch is power. 

I am their weapon.
I will fight back.

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.

My Review: 
Gods of Olympus, I have NEVER seen a dystopian like this in my whole life. This is insane. I really enjoyed Juliette's character development in this whole story, from being a insecure, not confident, shy girl, to becoming not the strongest heroine I've ever seen, but having the biggest character development. She freaking kicks Warner's ass butt good in this book. Adam is so lovely. I haven't been spoiled yet at all, because none of my friends really like dystopians, so I haven't seen anyone read it. Also, the writing style was so different from what I've read before. (And I've read a weird books before. Like a book written from the ending to the beginning. It was insane.) I enjoyed reading from this new way, with crossed out words, and run-on sentences, although the sentences did get a little long. However, I do think that it was a bit gushy and the romance was a bit cheesy, and seriously. No offense, Juliette, but I know how hot he is. 

Final Rating:
