Shatter Me

Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi Initial thoughts: This book pleasantly surprised me. I had no idea what to expect. Even though I had never read the synopsis and avoided reading all forms of reviews, Shatter Me was right up there on my TBR pile for quite some time. The prose was unexpected. It's different to say the least. I think that's where most of Tahereh Mafi's creativity shone through. Plot-wise, not an awful lot happened, though it seems like a promising set-up for the sequel. One thing that I could've done without was the excessive romance. It kinda felt misplaced to me, even if it added to the mystery that shrouded Juliette's strange abilities. Oh and Juliette blushed a lot. I'm surprised her face wasn't perpetually red.
