On My Wishlist (15)

In On My Wishlist I spotlight books that I'm really looking forward to. I know there's a meme Waiting on Wednesday and there even are others, but I'm going to rebel and do it how I want it (hehe). I'll feature the synopsis as posted on Goodreads and put a linkie to the Goodreads page of the book. This week: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.


Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Expected publication date: November 15th, 2011

Synopsis
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.

Probably the most hyped title of 2011 so I guess everyone already knows about this book. I've been following Tahereh on twitter since before it was announced that she had a three book deal with HarperTeen and when I read the blurb for this one I went like *ZOMG* and I guess the entire YA blogging community did the same. I preordered my copy in July so I guess that tells you about how badly I want this book. I entered a gazillion contests in the hope of getting an ARC of Shatter Me but alas.. I'll have to wait until November, and I'll probably be out camping besides the mail box when we reach its release date. I. Cannot. Wait.
