I have a curse
I have a gift

I am a monster
I'm more than human

My touch is lethal
My touch is power

I am their weapon
I will fight back

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.

The Tease

Today is the SHATTER ME release day, and having just read and loved it this past weekend, I wanted to share two small quotes from the book, as well as a song I chose for it.

I chose this song for Shatter Me because I felt the lyrics were perfect for Juliette and The Boy. If you’ve read the book, tell me your thoughts on this, but be careful of spoilers! And if you haven’t read it, I hope this (and my REVIEW) makes you want to read it even more. :)

He’s a hot bath, a short breath, five days of summer pressed into five fingers writing stories on my body.” – pg. 211

My face is in his hands and my lips are at his lips and he’s kissing me and I’m oxygen and he’s dying to breathe.” – pg. 231

The Tune

All I Want by Denver Harbor

Don’t close your eyes
Just let me be
The air you breathe
Everything you need
Don’t say goodnight
I’ll take you there
Anywhere, anywhere you want
Lay it all it down
Heavens been found in your arms
All that I know is I won’t let go until you do
With nothing left to prove, but everything to lose
And all I know is all I want it is you
All I want it is you

Just let me lead
You will follow on
Until the sun comes asking questions now
Then fall to sleep inside my arms
And hear my heart crying out for you
Lay it all down
Heavens been found in your arms
All that I know is that I won’t let go until you do
With nothing left to prove, but everything to lose
And all I know is:
All I want it is you
All I want it is you
All I want it is you
All I want it is you
