Booking It With Emma
February 8, 2022
Shatter Me is a dystopian fiction by Tahereh Mafi. It’s a book series that has six books and four novellas. Shatter Me is the first book in the series.
I’m now on book four. When I first started reading this book I immediately got hooked. The author’s writing is beautiful and the way the book is formatted really holds the whole book together and helps you imagine what the notebook looks like and such.
Juliette’s story is so captivating and interesting that it keeps you reeled in throughout the whole story. Juliette’s story makes you feel sympathetic and makes you wonder how parents could just give up their child even with what she ‘did.’ Juliette is a shy and quiet girl who is kinda going insane. Juliette has this notebook that she writes in and also keeps track of how many days she’s been in the asylum. She’s then introduced to Adam Kent who is trying to make her sane throughout their journey.
Juliette and Adam Kent’s story throughout the story grows and you slowly become in love with them. Adam tries his best throughout the story to help Juliette in every way he can, get her to talk in the beginning even though she doesn’t want to. Eventually, obviously, she does speak but it does take a bit for her to speak to him and fully trust him.
Aaron Warner the son of the leader of The Reestablishment falls in love with Juliette and puts her through a bunch of tests, hence why they try to escape. They escape successfully but every success has a downfall. That’s for you to find out though. Adam is overall a likable(ish) character and their relationship is very cute throughout the story. In my opinion this series is great and you should definitely give it a try, I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
