Waiting On Wednesday (Shatter Me)

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Every Wednesday participants choose a book that they are "waiting on" or hasn't been released yet. This week I'm waiting for X-Man meets The Hunger Games:

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: November 15, 2011
Pages: 352
Per Order It: Amazon
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.

In this electrifying debut, Tahereh Mafi presents a world as riveting as The Hunger Games and a superhero story as thrilling as The X-Men. Full of pulse-pounding romance, intoxicating villainy, and high-stakes choices, Shatter Me is a fresh and original dystopian novel—with a paranormal twist—that will leave readers anxiously awaiting its sequel. --Goodreads
Doesn't this sound EPIC?  I was reading it and immediately thought of the character, Rogue, from X-Man.  Then the dystopian factor hit and it sounds epic from there.  I just can't wait for this book to come out!  I wish I had a cover to show you, but the above picture was all I could find. 

So what are you "waiting on" today?
