Shatter Me


How did I get it?:
I bought it!


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.


This is one of those books that I’ve seen around on loads of blogs and I’ve been meaning to read for a while. It’s taken me a while to get to but this weekend I finally got around to reading it.

Shatter Me is Tahereh Mafi’s debut novel. It’s an exciting, fast-paced dystopian book. I had trouble putting it down once I had started it. I tore through the story savouring every piece of it! The story is action packed. I think because of this, it’s hard to picture the setting of the story. Not a lot of emphasis is put on the setting, which does allow the reader to open it up to their own interpretation, but for me, I would’ve liked to have learned more about the dystopian environment the characters were in.

Shatter Me is so well written, I really enjoyed reading it. I can’t wait to read Unravel Me.

Would I recommend it?:
Of course!

  1. Hello! Thank you for your review 🙂 I have been seeing this book around book shops a lot lately, and I really was wondering if it was worth it, because I honestly am a bit tired of dystopian novels that really tell the same story and aren’t all that good. I will definitely read this one!

Comments make me smile and I love to reply to them! Thanks for visiting today!
