Backlist Blast #29 – Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Backlist Blast is a weekly book meme which was created by Milana @ A Couple Reads and Flavia @ Flavia the Bibliophile. The main purpose of this book blog meme is to feature and discuss backlist books. A backlist book is any title that was published 6 months ago or earlier. The purpose of Backlist Blast is to get us excited about and reading the backlisted books in our TBR piles.


Shatter Me

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 colour.

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.


Released: 15 November 2011

Has anyone read this book? Would you recommend it? Should I move it to the top of my TBR pile or unhaul it?
