"Waiting on " Wednesday - Shatter Me


Hosted by Breaking The Spine, this section will feature future upcoming releases that I personally am excited about. These will generally be coming up later in the year. Let me know what you're looking forward to, or even what you're writing, and maybe I'll feature it here as well.

Tahereh Mafi - Shatter Me

• Pub. Date: November 15, 2011
• Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
• Format: Hardcover 352pp
• Age Range: Young Adult

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.

Um, yeah. Dystopian novels are hit or miss with me, but this sounds ridiculously awesome. I hope it's a fantastic novel. If you aren't yet following this author on twitter, do so now. She's young, awesome, and posts hilarious tweets. Keep an eye out for this book, too. I'm patiently waiting!! (Not really.) Happy Wednesday!
