Waiting on Wednesday: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Product Description

"You can't touch me," I whisper.
I'm lying, is what I don't tell him.
He can touch me, is what I'll never tell him.
But things happen when people touch me.
Strange things.
Bad things.
No one knows why Juliette's touch is fatal, but The Reestablishment has plans for her. Plans to use her as a weapon.
But Juliette has plans on her own.
After a lifetime without freedom, she's finally discovering a strength to fight back for the very first time—and to find a future with the one boy she thought she'd lost forever.

About the Author

Tahereh Mafi is a girl. She was born in a small city somewhere in Connecticut and currently resides in Orange County, California, where the weather is just a little too perfect for her taste. When unable to find a book, she can be found reading candy wrappers, coupons, and old receipts. Shatter Me is her first novel.

  1. Sounds kinda like Jenny Pox by J.L. Bryan... only slightly different because they aren't using Jenny as a weapon (they as in the government), they just wanna find her before she kills anyone.

    I promise I didn't spoil anything if you haven't read it yet!

  2. This was my WOW choice as well this week :)

  3. Nick pick! The story seems very interesting...and a book from an author who reads anything with letters on it must great! :D

  4. Great choice! I read an ARC of it and it was really good. I hope you enjoy it too.
