This post is a couple of days late but it’s April Fools so… Surprise! This month (April) I’m going to be doing a Buddy Read with the lovely Lianne from Literary Diversions!
We chose to read Shatter Me since the trilogy has just ended and it’s been getting such rave reviews but neither of us had read it! This is the first book in the Young Adult dystopian thriller trilogy and it has a 4.05/5 rating on Goodreads so I’m pretty excited to give this a read. I’m hoping this book will match the beauty of the cover!
“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.”
If you want to join us we’re going to be reading about 13 chapters a week and I’m going to be posting updates as we go, with a big joint review at the end of the month!
