S is for Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi


For 2013's A to Z Challenge, I am talking about book series, particularly some favorite series as well as series I've been waiting to read for a LONG time.

S is for ... Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi

I’ve followed Tahereh Mafi’s blog for a long time. When I heard about Shatter Me, the idea sounded so fantastic. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to read the first book yet. It’s just waiting on my Kindle for me. I’ve heard Mafi’s style is so unique, and I love the idea of crossing out words too.

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.
