Mini Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

My Touch Is Lethal My Touch Is Power

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.”

I knew nothing about this book going in but I had seen it mentioned quite a bit on social media so I thought I would give it a go. I’m still not sure what to make of it or what’s really going on it kind of has a Divergent slash Xmen feel about it which I do like. It didn’t necessarily blow me away and I’m kind of over the desperate one and only love theme but that’s not the books fault more just me feeling jaded. I will continue with the series as it has caught my interest, I do want to know what exactly is going on and I’ll only find that out if I keep going (plus I bought the set as a Kindle bundle including the latest release Restore Me).

I will keep you updated on my thoughts on the next one, if you have read the series tell me what you think, is it worth sticking with?
