Waiting on Wednesday: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming books that you can't wait to read.

My anxiously awaited title this week is:
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Publish date: November 15, 2011
Genre: Dystopia
Pages: 352
Audience: Young Adult

From Goodreads:
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. 

I was definitely starting to feel the covetousness this past weekend when it seemed like everyone and their brother got an ARC of this one.  I have heard the writing in this book is amazing and that is really what gave me pause and decided to put this one on my TBR list.
