(Shatter Me #1)
Published: October 2nd 2012 (first published November 15th 2011)
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.

I finished Shatter Me… I don’t even remember anymore, which is a clear sign that I should’ve posted this review way before.
Anyway, I really enjoyed Shatter Me! I’ve heard a lot of hype around this book for a while now, and in case you didn’t understand from my rating, my expectations have been met. 😉
Juliette has a power. A curse. A gift. Whatever you want to call it. Whenever she touches someone, the worst pain beholds the person, or even worse, they die. So she’s been locked up, isolated from people. Then one day, she has a cellmate. From there on, everything Juliette thought she knew is being questioned, and she’s faced with a choice. A choice that will shape her future.Read More »
