Julianna Helms enjoys sleeping, chocolate, bean bags, freeze rays, teleportation devices, Avatar: The Last Airbender, books (duh), writing, photography (she runs some weird thing called Moonglass Studios), and graphic/web design (What the heck even is Dreamless Designs, anyway?). She also likes to be sassy and blunt and aspires to be a karaoke-fu champion penguin.
Hey guys! It's almost Thursday now, but I was just itchin' to join in on a meme. I really like this one, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, so I thought I'd put in a last-minute ditch effort and score myself a meme post this week. There are other memes for the other days of the week, but... what can I say? I'm not the most patient gal you'll ever meet. :)
So, this week, I'm dying for:
Shatter Me By: Tahereh Mafi
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.
What about you? What are YOU waiting for this week? Don't worry if it's Thursday, or any other day of the week. Comment below anyway! After all.. rules are meant to be broken.
