Title: Shatter Me (Shatter Me #1)
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Synopsis: 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.
Rating on Goodreads: 3,97/ 5 stars
WHY I WANT TO READ IT
This series is all my sister talks about. I love the premise of this book and how full of intrigues it seems! I love anything related to magic and Juliette’s magical gift/curse would be interesting to read about. I have heard that is book contains a great deal of romance and I am a sucker for love stories; slow-burn, enemies to lovers trope, instalove: I want it all! I also follow Tahereh Mafi on Instagram and she is so perfect and I really want to read her books and join the fun! This series was initially a trilogy but she keeps releasing more books that people are actually excited about; that can only be a good sign, right?
