Bookreview: "Shatter me" by Tahereh Mafi
Hello everyone, today I'm going to write a bookreview on "Shatter me" by Tahereh Mafi. It has taken me quite a while to finish it because I had a lot of other stuff to do.
I bought a whole bunch of new dystopian books because I absolutely love them, but as you all know it's not possible to buy the time to read the books. Like I said, this is a dystopian story (where the government has all the power, where people have no rights, stuff like that).
In this story there's a girl locked up girl with weird powers. Her name is Juliette and when you touch her, or when she touches you, you die.
Nobody knows where it comes from but the people from the government see it as an option to make her a "soldier". After all, she only needs to touch someone long enough and they die right away. Juliette of course, doesn't like that idea and decides to fight.
I loved the book because it's a dystopian story but also because it was all worked out so well! I really enjoyed this book. The one thing that I didn't like at first is that some sentences were constantly repeated or crossed out, but that didn't happen as much later on in the book. As for the cover of the book, well holy moly I think it's beautiful. I love it when I'm reading a book with a wonderful cover because it'll make me grab the book sooner (I know, don't judge a book by its cover but sometimes I do without knowing it!)
