Hey, I hope everyone is doing well. Today, I have a dystopian read to share with you!
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Juliette is a seventeen year old girl who has an unusually lethal ability, the touch of death.
She has been locked away in solitude for 264 days.
Until one day, a cellmate is forced upon her.
Adam, who is her age, is new to the ways of survival under imprisonment.
He is quick to dominate their now shared space.
Juliette remembers Adam from her past.
Does he remember her?
She informs him how the routines of eating and showering go.
Life on the outside is no picnic. Food is scarce, diseases are taking out the population, birds do not take flight, and even the clouds are no longer white.
The Reestablishment has made false promises and there has been silent whispers of rebellion and war.
The dictator in charge of the area wants to use her as a weapon.
Will she succumb to his wishes?
Find her inner warrior?
I enjoyed this book overall. However, there were some slow parts. The middle of the book picked up and the end entices me to want to pick up the sequel, Unravel Me. I have heard this series gets better at it progresses.
Best Wishes Always,
