Title: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Release: 10th February 2012
Synopsis: One touch is all it takes. One touch, and Juliette Ferrars can leave a fully grown man gasping for air. One touch, and she can kill.
No one knows why Juliette has such incredible power. It feels like a curse, a burden that one person alone could never bear. But The Reestablishment sees it as a gift, sees her as an opportunity. An opportunity for a deadly weapon.
Juliette has never fought for herself before. But when she’s reunited with the one person who ever cared about her, she finds a strength she never knew she had.
I know I’m late to the party but I am so in love with this book! An exciting and thrilling book filled with excitement, horror and beautiful writing to leave you begging for more.
Right from the first line, this book had me hooked. It was one of the most powerful, and poignant lines, and something that has now forever been seared onto my mind. It set up the tone of the book so well, and from then on I continually fell more and more in love with it.
Tahereh has such a beautiful way of describing scenes, and her writing itself is so poetic that you can’t help but completely immerse yourself in the world she creates. She describes everything in such detail you can really imagine that you’re there, and put yourself in the characters shoes, and it’s amazing.
Her use of strikethroughs is also absolutely outstanding. Never before in any book have I read such brilliant use of strikethrough, but Tahereh not only does it perfectly, but it is so effective to the overall story. It’s so unique but works absolutely brilliantly.
The characters are both well developed and also so interesting, they all work so well together and I love them all so much. I could feel what they were feeling, and Kenji is my absolute favourite! The ending left me in awe of the book, and as soon as I finished it I ordered the rest!
If you’re looking for a book that will leave you with a complete love for an authors writing style, and a book that may potentially ruin your emotions – look no further!
Also the cover is ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!
