I’m feeling happy, sad and desperate at the same time after finishing this implausible piece of fictional work.It made me burst with thousands of incalculable emotions. This is definitely the best futuristic novel I’ve ever read so far. And you should certainly certainly CERTAINLY read Shatter Me if you haven’t already, it’ll fulfill its promise of shattering you, and you’ll love it.
If you love a male character who is feared by the world but is a kind, sweet butter from within, then you should read this.
The book is about a girl named Juliette, a 17-year-old girl with a lethal touch and her life’s journey about how she was never truly understood or even treated right like a normal human being just because of something she couldn’t control.
There’s also a messy love triangle too, which I personally love.
I’d give it a 5/5 stars.
Favorite quote: “I always wonder about raindrops.
I wonder about how they're always falling down, tripping over their own feet, breaking their legs and forgetting their parachutes as they tumble right out of the sky toward an uncertain end. It's like someone is emptying their pockets over the earth and doesn't seem to care where the contents fall, doesn't seem to care that the raindrops burst when they hit the ground, that they shatter when they fall to the floor, that people curse the days the drops dare to tap on their doors.
I am a raindrop.” ― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
A long quote but definitely a heart touching one.
P.S. For the past few months I’ve been getting my hands on the best books and I’m loving them all so much it feels so surreal.
