Waiting on Wednesday(1)

Yes, yes, another meme. Because, as it so happens, I still have too much time on my hands, and I am still bored.

**Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.**

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Publish Date: November 15, 2011 by HarperCollins


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 asThe 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.

So, I'm aware that many people in the world of book blogging have already read this and that it's not exactly new news, but I, myself, have not yet read it, and I've wanted it since I first saw it on inkpop's blog.  I mean, just look at the idea! A girl with a lethal touch in a dystopian world ravaged by disease? Does that not reek of awesome?

Plus, the cover. It's so shiny.

I thought I'd have to wait till Thanksgiving for this one(I get my Chanukkah presents on Thanksgiving, not Chanukkah--it's a long story) but thanks to the lovely Zoey(You should check out her blog. Look. A pretty link.) I shall most likely be getting it sooner.

Anyways. Yeah. What's your WoW?
