Why I'm waiting?
When I first read Shatte Me, I was amazed. As a guy, most of the time, I am not a big fan of romance in YA because that is the focus in the stories. The Shatter Me has a huge part in the romance department, however the story is written so beautifully that I don't care. The romance is completely fine. I care for all the characters. Juliette's voice is strong and engaging. Tahereh Mafi has one of the uniquest writing styles in the YA genre. Her poetic style makes the books so fascinating and I always find myself wowed by different quotes throughout the books. Most importantly, the world the books are set in is so dangerous. Even though the story does not focus too much on the dystopian world, I find myself utterly engaged in the events of the book. I want to know what happens, and I cannot wait.
