Review : The Shatter Me series 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.” (GoodReads)

I recently read The Shatter Me series. I’m a huge fan of YA dystopians, so i was already sold. The story looked interesting and the covers are gorgeous.
But when i started reading, i was a bit turn off by the writing style. It’s very lyrical and repetitive. I had a hard time getting into the story because of this. I was so intrigued by the story that i pushed myself to keep on reading and i’m glad i did. I got used to the writing, i even enjoyed it. It’s very unique.
When i put down Ignite Me ( book #3) i was sad. Sad because it was over. The story is amazing. There is a little bit of everything in it. It’s action pack but also very psychological. Juliette’s mind is so traumatic, but by the end, she is completly changed. Awesome character-building.
