Waiting on Wednesday: Shatter Me

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's Waiting on Wednesday pick is:


Book: Shatter Me
Athor: Tahereh Mafi
Publication Date: November 15, 2011

Description: 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.

My thoughts: I have been waiting on this book since I saw it. It looks amazing , sounds amazing, and the debut author seems amazing. I have been following her blog here for some time (okay only a few days, nonetheless I must admit I've been stalking it) and I just cant wait to buy a book. She also has a contest to win one of her ARC's here so we should show our support and enter.

What are your WoW picks this week?

Shatter Me is one of those books that I'm dying to get my hands on. I'll probably feature it for a WoW too closer to its release date.
