Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine =)

This week- well, for months, really- I’ve been looking forward to the release of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi, which is releasing on November 15th, which is still so far =(

Summary (goodreads):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 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 as The 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.

I’ve been following Tahereh Mafi’s blog for a long while, and she’s HILARIOUS. I’m hoping her book is as amazing as everyone says, because she is truly a gifted writer, plus I LOVE dystopian, so this is one book I can’t wait to get my hands on.

What are you guys waiting on this Wednesday?


  1. Thanks for stopping by my WOW post!

    So many people are featuring this book this week, which is both nice and annoying because I'm afraid of all the hype. I don't like when my expectations of a book are just full-blown out, you know?

    But what can you do? I hope one of us wins an ARC somewhere down the line (hopefully me HAHA) because like you said November is a long way away.


  2. Thanks for checking out my WOW this week.

  3. Sounds very awesome. Can't wait for this one.


  4. Well, true- I knew a lot of people were going to do thier WoW on this- but I've been waiting for this book for SO long 🙂
