Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking The Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm waiting on Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi!
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'll admit I wasn't sold on this book at first. I thought (and still do think actually) that the cover is a bit weird... But then I read this review of Shatter me by Novel Thought and she convinced me that this book is gonna be amazing. Tough female heroine? Awesome dystopian setting? CUTE GUY CHARACTER? Yeah, I'm sold. :)
Sadly Shatter Me won't be released till November 15th. But, in the meantime you can go and enter to win 1 of 20 copies over at GoodReads!
Oh and be sure to stalk, errrrr I mean follow the authors blog! Its pretty dang awesome.
