Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi // Review

Title: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Rating: ★★★★★

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.

Review:

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!

September Book Haul!

Hi everyone!

I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS SO LATE??? WHERE ARE THE MONTHS GOING?? September was a super good month for book hauling! I waited until mostly near the end of the month to actually buy books, which is one of the best shows of restraint I’ve ever had haha! Here are the books I bought:

Title:
 The Graces by Laura Eve

I’ve heard such great things about this, mostly from book bloggers (Summer from Buttermybooks definitely!) so when I saw it on buy one get one half price, I had to get it! IT’S SO PRETTY!

Synopsis: Everyone said the Graces were witches.
They moved through the corridors like sleek fish, ripples in their wake. Stares followed their backs and their hair.
They had friends, but they were just distractions. They were waiting for someone different.
All I had to do was show them that person was me.

Like everyone else in her town, River is obsessed with the Graces, attracted by their glamour and apparent ability to weave magic. But are they really what they seem? And are they more dangerous than they let on?

14804943_10205608382848348_1801116647_nTitle: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this book!  It’s supposed to be one of the best books this year, and I’ve waited long enough! I got it and I am so so excited to read it, especially now Crooked Kingdom is out too!

Synopsis: Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams – but he can’t pull it off alone.
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. 
Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction – if they don’t kill each other first.

Title:
 The Thousandth Floor by Katharine McGee

Again this book is so beautiful, and it’s been all over BookTube for so long that I was so excited to get it. It sounds so interesting and definitely right up my street!

Synopsis: Welcome to Manhattan, 2118. A thousand-storey tower stretching into the sky. A glittering vision of the future, where anything is possible – if you want it enough. A hundred years in the future, New York’s elite of the super-tower lie, backstab and betray each other to find their place at the top of the world. Everyone wants something… and everyone has something to lose. As the privileged inhabitants of the upper floors recklessly navigate the successes and pitfalls of the luxury life, forbidden desires are indulged and carefree lives teeter on the brink of catastrophe. Whilst lower-floor workers are tempted by a world – and unexpected romance – dangling just out of reach. And on the thousandth floor is Avery Fuller, the girl genetically designed to be perfect. The girl who seems to have it all – yet is tormented by the one thing she can never have. So when a young woman falls from the top of the supertower, her death is the culmination of a scandal that has ensnared the top-floor elite and bottom-floor. But who plummeted from the roof? And what dark secrets led to her fall? Friends will be betrayed and enemies forged as promises are broken. When you’re this high up, there’s nowhere to go but down…
