Teaser Tuesday (24): Shatter Me


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

This week's teaser comes from Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. THIS. BOOK. Why have I not read this book yet?! I'm reading this one slowly because I have a bunch of other books that I have to finish by their deadlines, but it's just too good to wait!
Hate looks just like everybody else until it smiles. Until it spins around and lies with lips and teeth carved into the semblance of something too passive to punch. 
{Shatter Me, Chapter 12}
And another because there are just so many beautiful quotes!
I'm willing to give you everything you could ever want, and above all else, I can put power in your hands. I can make them suffer for what they did to you.’ He leans in just enough. ‘I can change your world.’
He's wrong he's so wrong he's more wrong than an upside-down rainbow. 
{Shatter Me, Chapter 20}

Goodreads Synopsis of Shatter Me:

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.
