On My Wishlist (18)

On My Wishlist
On My Wishlist is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome Carolyn and Laura at Book Chick City.  Every Saturday, we get to list a book or two (or few) that we want to add to our TBR pile that either hasn’t come out yet or is just waiting for us to pounce on.

This week I picked one that my hands have been twitching for since I heard of it, long before it even had a cover (and if you’ve been here before, you probably know how I squeal like a girly girl over pretty covers).  Can you believe the film rights have already been optioned by 20th Century Fox?   The cover actually turned out to be kind of meh, but I still can’t wait until November for this one.  That’s an enormous hint by the way to any ARC fairy at HarperCollins who just happens to wander by.

Shatter MeShatter Me
By Tahereh Mafi
Publisher: HarperCollins
Publication Date: November 15, 2011
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal

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.
