Review of Shatter Me

*There is minor language...so watch out for that*

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.
Of all things awesome, Tahereh Mafi, captured it all! This book had everything...such as : 
  • Strong plot 
  • amazing Characters
  • A lead female who is witty, smart, and has the ability to say no
  • An Amazing guy, who is just to damn hot ! (mind my language) 
  • An awesome villain who is witty, and sarcastic ( brought lots of humor, which was good)
That was my 5 main bullet points why this book was awesome. But that doesn't some up everything, not even close to everything! I was lucky enough to get an ARC of Shatter Me, and wow it is phenomenal!
    The plot starts off strong, I love the fact Juliette would say something, but means something else. Like one of favorite parts she goes..."He's Gorgeous Dangerous..." Juliette (writes/ talks/ thinks) like this through the whole book, which adds a great effect. Juliette may something and worry about something else. It makes her seem so teenager-ish and mature but immature. Juliette is the type of girl, all girls should want to be. Not the fact she is considered a "criminal" , but the fact, she is sweet, and caring, but she is strong. Her strength is endless, when everyone hates Juliette, she still continues to care for others, and continues to try to fit in. When mister bad guy (Waren) asks her to do certain things ( will not say what, since you need to read the book to know) she becomes all feisty and gets her job done first.  She saves people, and she is just totally kick butt since she can break a wall of concrete! She is strong mentally, and physically! If i was a guy i would totally fall head over heals for her....plus she is pretty according to 3 diffrent people..sooo hmmmm... lol
     But Juliette is great no doubt, but for me Adam is way better. I finally found a fictitious guy who follows every criteria I look for in a guy. He contains all four "S" (s) which are
  • Sweet
  • Smart
  • Sensitive
  • So Damn sexy ;)
He is a just....WOW! He is the tall, dark and handsome...and he has the blue eyes :D! Now that makes me happy, as you can tell from previous reviews I love guys with, dark hair and blue/ green eyes. Once you read Shatter Me you will completely understand why I love him! 
          But not only is there Adam...There is also Waren and Kenji. So Waren may be evil, and Keji might be a smart ass....but both of them are way to funny! I love their sarcastic charm. There are some parts where i don't care if Waren is evil, he has to much charm! ( Yes, I do like the bad-boy type FYI lol). And then other times I think Kenji's flirting is too funny. So this book has three charming guys, all three hot, one is the sweet amazing later to be boyfriend, then the evil 19 year old who wants the girl, and then the boyfriends best friend. It is too awesome! 
           Shatter me ended up being a great book, and an amazing read! Though in the middle, I felt that the book began to drag for a little bit. Which brought down form the book, but then it picks up again, and then it becomes awesome lol. SO overall Shatter Me is phenomenal, and Tahereh Mafi is kick butt for writing this book! I would give Shatter Me a 4.5 /5 only because i felt like it dragged a little bit, but if those 30 pages werent there this book would totally be a 5! It is amazing and this book and comes out on November 15 ! so pre-order it, and buy it when it comes out!

  1. I have this on my wishlist! The cover and synopsis completely drew me in. I'm so glad there's a positive review already! Makes me want to read it even more.

  2. That actually sounds awesome. Guess I never grew up because I still read MG and YA fantasy and SF. That's why I decided to write for teens, though all I could ask now is whether you think my website makes Erth Won sound like something you'd want to read. I came here to help you reach 200 though I'd be happy to hit 100.
