Shatter Me Review

Shatter MeShatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

I am so Fangirling over this book!!! It is the only book I have ever wanted to give six stars to.. It is so beautifully, amazingly, fantastically written. I was/am nervous writing a review for this book, because I wanted my words/review to do Tahereh Mafi's talent justice.

When I first finished the book I was like "OMGRKFHA;D VIJHA" then I was like "ALSKDVNEM;LKERJ!!" Seriously, there isn't a sentence in this book that cannot be quoted. Each sentence, feeling, emotion tells its own story. (BTW.. I listened to the Audiobook, and will try to do my best when quoting the book. Sorry in advance.)

Raindrops are my only reminder that clouds have a heartbeat. That I have one, too.

Even the simplest description of "blushing" is turned into something beautiful.

I am wearing dead cotton on my limbs and a blush of roses on my face.

The plot of the book was fairly simple, Juliette’s touch is lethal thus The Reestablishment wants to use her as a weapon. She wants needs to get away. A flying white bird with streaks of gold helps her escape. Escape to a place where Juliette can truly belong. Tahereh Mafi's writing takes this plot and explodes it into a million different feelings.

Swoonworthy moments.. Check! There were about three or four swoonworthy moments, that my heart literally jumped out of my chest and painted my face red. Shatter me was also chalked full of hunky men! Adam with blue eyes as deep as the deepest ocean. And Warner's eyes glistened like a pale emerald.

My body is a carnivorous flower, a poisonous houseplant, a loaded gun with a million triggers, and he's more than ready to fire.

This book is a MUST.. MUST.. MUST read!
