Me on Waiting on Wednesday (35)

Waiting on Wednesday is a bunch of weekly fun hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. :)

Title: Shatter Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Release Date: November 15, 2011
Publisher: HarperTeen (HC imprint)

From Goodreads:

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.

I know, I know, I've already read this, but I had to do it as a WoW post when the cover was released last week. My ARC has the plain white 'cover art to come' cover with just the title on it. And doesn't it sound amazing? Don't you want to read it?


  1. Before I even read your whole post, I saw the cover and said, "BUT YOU ALREADY READ IT."

    I forgive you because the cover? It's totally worth doing a WoW even if you've read it.

  2. The cover is awesome. It fits the story so well. Can't wait to own a hardcover copy!

  3. so lucky you already read it. i'm really excited for this one to come out.

    Stop by my WoW this week.


  4. I'm looking forward to this book in absurd and ridiculous amounts. So much so to use synonyms in the same sentence. And the cover is gorgeous, isn't it?

  5. Sounds very awesome. Can't wait for this one.
