Shatter Me

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1)Title: Shatter Me
Author:  Tahereh Mafi 
Rating: 4.5/5
Summary: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. 

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting asThe Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel.
 My Thoughts: GAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH this book was (excuse squeels of excitment) awesome!

I wont go into the whole story that would take forever but a lot of people are crushing the beginning for having a poetry feel but I liked that, for me it made the book unique. The whole book is Juliette's POV (point of view) if this is how she wants to express her feelings than she can write as much poetry as she wants. the poetry type writing wasnt horrible, in fact I liked it. It had rhythm and a lot of deep feeling. 

For a girl who hasnt been touched in 264 days she is strong and not broken. 

OK lets start with ADAM *HEART THROB* Oh God I'm not sure how to go about Juliette's love life she has weird X-man type powers that make her almost suck the life energy out of people she touches  (SPOILER) and Adam is immune *cue AWESOME love story* Kenji was a good addition to the cast of characters (also in my opinion hot, but I do not want him in a love triangle situation with Juliette). I liked the humorous element he added he sort of lightened the mood a bit in the more depressing moments.

All in all a must read! 
IM BEGGING you to read this
