    1. Tahereh Mafi says:

      She was born in a small city somewhere in Connecticut and currently resides in Santa Monica, California, where she drinks too much caffeine and finds the weather to be just a little too perfect for her taste When unable to find a book, she can be found reading candy wrappers, coupons, and old receipts.

    1. This is not a dystopia, it is a romance. This is not a novel, it is a collection of similes and metaphors, most of which do not make sense. I originally gave Shatter Me two stars because that's my sort of kneejerk reaction to books I don't like, but after thinking it over for a while, I can't recall anything positive about it that would justify a rating of more than one star.You're probably assuming - correctly - that I went into this book with low expectations. This is completely true. Any so-c [...]

    2. I know many really a SHIT-TON of people found this book to be oh so romantic, but I can't help but think how gross it was.The writing:Mafi's style of writing varies. Let me categorize.This doesn't even make sense writing:"I catch the rose petals as they fall from my cheeks, as they float around the frame of my body, as they cover me in something that feels like the absence of courage.""He says it with a small smile the size of Jupiter."I'm picturing this in my head and it's not pretty writing:"E [...]

    3. MY PRECIOUS IS NOW SIGNED BY TAHEREH!!! I can die of happiness now <3 In case y'all didn't know, not only was this book optioned by Warner Bros as a movie, it has now been optioned as a TV SHOW BY ABC STUDIOS -with Tahereh as a producer.This better happen. I am not joking. I am tired of great books (cough, cough: The Song of the Lioness Quartet and The Dust Lands Trilogy: Blood Red Road; Rebel Heart; Raging Star) not becoming movies or TV shows after they are optioned. Dear book gods (and I k [...]

    4. November 2017I picked this back up on a whim because I've been dealing with anxiety lately and wanted to return to something comforting, so I decided to annotate one of my paperback copies. And I gotta say, It's. weird returning to book one. Ignite Me is my favorite book of all time, and rereading that book is such an immersive experience that I always come out of feeling empowered. This book, on the other hand, holds such a special place in my heart because it's so relatable that it hurts. From [...]

    6. Shat­ter Me, oth­er­wise known as: When Cre­ative Writ­ing Class Goes Wrong.I am all for exper­i­men­tal writ­ing, for stretch­ing your abil­i­ties and try­ing to find fresh ways to express ideas. Occa­sion­ally you end up with genius, but most of the time you result in pre­ten­tious, awk­ward prose that stick in the prover­bial craw of read­ers. This book is that writ­ing. There are plenty of exam­ples that I can give as evi­dence – but I shall stick with two rel­a­ti [...]

    7. This book was just awful.Awful.There is no other way to describe this book, but awful.When I was about eleven or twelve, before we had the Great Garage Sale of the Noughties, my sister used to always sit me down and force me to watch this terrible movie called All She Ever Wanted. I watched that shit about seven times, and I got so abhorrently sick of it that eventually I hid it.The DVD rack hit a status quo. All were happy. Until one day a neighbor took the first strike in the Great Garage Sale [...]

    8. I always wonder about raindrops.I wonder about how they’re always falling down, tripping over their own feet, breaking their legs and forgetting their parachutes as they tumble right out of the sky toward an uncertain end. It’s like someone is emptying their pockets over the earth and doesn’t seem to care where the contents fall, doesn’t seem to care that the raindrops burst when they hit the ground, that they shatter when they fall to the floor, that people curse the days the drops dare [...]

    10. By the way, check out this fan made poster for the movie, if there ever was one.Made by skellingt0n on deviantART.I looove it! Exactly how I would picture a movie poster for this book._________________I read this book in one sitting.For five hours, I read this. It was a school night and I stayed up all night. That's how much this book pulled me.I know that there are many people who didn't like this book, some even hate it, but Gah, it was just so awesome to me! It's definitely one of those books [...]

    11. I seriously don’t know why it took me so long to dig my claws into this book, but I definitely know that I don’t regret doing it! ;-)“Shatter me” was an awesome read and I enjoyed it immensely! There were so many things I loved about this book and whilst it is true that many people complained about the writing style, I have to admit that I actually loved it. “Hope is hugging me, holding me in its arms, wiping away my tears and telling me that today and tomorrow and two days from now I [...]

    12. (2.5?) The lack of world building is one of my main issues with this book (even though it seems like things will be explained in book 2 a full book with little world building is boring!).I didn't love the writing and the characters felt very one dimensional.Kinda felt like another YA dystopian world with a love triangle and an incredibly pretty main character - even after spending over 6 months isolated, underfed and the fact that she hasn't seen herself in the mirror in 3 years Her beauty is me [...]

    13. [image error]How awesome was this book? Well,I am going to tell you. Pretty darn awesome! I am not very good at convincing people to read the books I loved so I am going to write this review without any pressure. Here are some arguments: 1. if you are (like myself) a fan of X-Men,you will love it,or else2. If you are (like myself) a fan of strong and smart leading character like Juliet,you will love it. 3. If you are (like myself) a fan of totally shagable and caring guy like Adam,you will love [...]

    14. You can find the full review and more about this book on my blog!This was somethingd I liked it.Okay so the first 200 pages were like the dullest,cheesiest romance bullshit,like the level of cheesiness was above normal,and you know how I feel about that.I sometimes thought to quit,but god,I am glad I didn't.You know when you loose all the hope but then one things clings and you see the light again? Omega Point was that for me.Like my thoughts about this book changed 100 percent.There are 3 thing [...]

    15. MKAY. First of all. I actually liked this but I must rant I must then I promise to go to book 2 immediately.WHY. WHYWHYWHYWHY. I swear, if the writing hadn’t been so awkwardly aghhh… this book would have been a 4 star book. No, it was not just the strikeouts and crazy reputations. It wasn’t even the unfinished sentences.Please please please explain to me how you come up with sentences like this…“He’s so wrong he’s so wrong he’s more wrong than an upside-down rainbow”or “He sm [...]

    16. This is gooooooooood. I'm not giving it 5 stars because, even if I admire the shit out of the author's style and talent, the writing is a bit too pretentious at times (hyperbole thy name is Tahereh Mafi), and I really don't care much about the whole Adam/Juliette thing, which unfortunately, occupies a huge part of the story. If you know me, you know I am a pro at ignoring ships that the authors clearly want you to root for. I don't trust Adam and his and Juliette's feelings for each other are so [...]

    17. Re-Read (11/02/2018)I enjoyed it as much as I thought I would. I missed the characters a lot so I spent a great time accompanying them in this adventure, I know that it is not the best book in the world and I know that alot of people can't stand it, but personally, even though I'm aware of certain problems in it, I can't stop loving it. Shatter Me is one of those books that have made me love reading even more and will always be in my heart. I can't wait to continue with my re-reading in preparat [...]

    18. Didn't finish. I simply stopped reading this book today, and it wasn't because it was boring or anything like that. I just did not care for Mafi's writing style. The over use of metaphors and strikeout tools caused a constant distraction, and the book was just not interesting enough for me to want to struggle through something that annoyed me so much. The book (well what I got to, anyway) read like a super annoying IM by a 12 year old girl that just learned what a metaphor is. Do we REALLY need [...]

    19. (Note: friends and followers, you know me by now. You know that, even as much as I love a book, my reviews aren't always a resounding, "Oh my goodness, you need to READ THIS NOW! YOUR LIFE WILL BE SO MUCH FULLER BECAUSE OF IT!" I'm not that naive or arrogant to think that the books I love will be the books you love. Instead, my reviews are.nicles of the experiences I had with books, and if that can help you decide whether certain books will be for you or not, then I'll be all the happier. Howev [...]

    20. This book is pretty darn bad. This book is pretty darn bad.Oh, darn, did I miss the point of the strikethroughs?

      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestIt's not easy being Queen of Literary Trash. Between YA and bodice-rippers, I read more "bad" books than most elitist snobs will see in their entire lifetime. But then, I consider myself a connoisseur of the so-called trashy arts. There are two kinds of "bad" books. There are the books that tell good stories and while they aren't highbrow literature, they are still fun to read and if you can let go of your snobbery long enough to enjoy them, will [...]

    22. UPDATE: I stand up slowly, suddenly shaking with anger, hoping my legs won't collapse beneath me. "You think that because I am unwanted - because I am neglected and - and discarded -" My voice inches higher with every word, the unrestrained emotions suddenly screaming through my lungs. "You think I don't have a heart? You think I don't feel? You think that because I can inflict pain, that I should? You're just like everyone else. You think I'm a monster just like everyone else. You don't underst [...]

    23. My first reaction when I finished the book was: THANK GOD IT’S OVER.I fully expected to at least somewhat like this because one of my friends gushed about this series so much, and I was… extremely disappointed. I mean, what could I have loved anyways? The annoying characters? The love triangle? The cringy romance? The typical dystopia?The premise was slightly interesting. The execution was Gárbáge.First I have to talk about the writing style. Everyone probably knows about the absolutely ri [...]

    24. THIRD ATTEMPT AT READINGI actually got through it. Full review to come. RE-READINGSECOND REVIEWI skimmed read this so bloody hard but here are some notes I took before my brain shit itself and couldn't handle the idiocy. The writing is beautiful, definitely but I hate both the plot and the characters. So, without further ado, here are my notes:- “My parents emptied their pockets of me and left me to evaporate on a concrete slab.”- I hate Adam- I hate Juliette - "You could love me, you know. [...]

    25. “Raindrops are my only reminder that clouds have a heartbeat. That I have one, too.”Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Juliette was in a prison cell for nearly one year trying to survive her life in a dark, lonely room. There was no one to talk to, nothing to read, to do. She only had a small notebook where she wrote down her feelings, her thoughts. She poured her heart out into this pages. The guilt, the loneliness of never touching anyone. But then she got a new cell mate. A boy with blue eyes, [...]

    26. “I'm oxygen and he's dying to breathe.”I enjoyed this book heartily despite that world-building. Shatter Me gave me much more than an entertaining ride, the book shocked me with its characters. Yes, Juliette is such a doleful character and she isn't the one leading the story into a good way. Not at all ! But Warner and Adam are my reasons for liking this book and going crazy. Adam is just like a good guy trying to impress the girl he likes. But Warner, a handsome and dark guy, took my breath [...]

    27. I read this in 2 days. 2 DAYS!!Not bragging or anything, but for a slow sloth like me, that's a pretty good accomplishment, don't ya think??This story didn't have a lot of pages, but for some reason, you're just compelled to finish it. Is this a magical spell? No, it's because this book was BRILLIANT. Mafi creates an entire world with action, suspense, crazy hot boys and all that shit.Now, a lot of people said that they liked Warner, but for me, my childish brain fell in love with the first boy [...]

    28. Time for a Reread of Shatter Me aka 300+ pages of Hyperbole aka Juliette Whines for 3 weeks and I Endure It aka I'm Really Only Here for WarnerThis reread has been very helpful in informing me that yes, I do still hate Juliette with the fiery passion of a hundred nuclear detonations.She speaks in riddles, to the point where any self-respecting reader has to rest their eyes & brain every 3 pages to recover. There's no way to escape this issue because first person narration - thrice cursed be [...]

    29. The writing style intrigued me and although at times I was irritated with Juliette, I couldn't help but enjoy this book! I flew right threw it in two days! Here's my booktalk with all my thoughts and musings: youtu/Ihe6hYaUTRA =D

    30. 2.5 stars"No one has touched me in 264 days."Look, guys, I knew the horror stories about Shatter Me. I read the reviews, saw the bloated quotes and everything. But I have a masochistic streak that stretches further than my common sense, so I read it.And it wasn't that bad. Like, it's bad. I remember marveling at how juvenile YA at the turn of the decade used to be, but it's not claw-my-eyes-out, why-the-fuck-was-I-given-the-ability-to-comprehend-words bad. The prose, which I thought would be the [...]
