All right, so I am new to this- so of course I’m going to start with a little bit about me. If you don’t want to bother to read the intro- go ahead and skip ahead to the actual post. Really, it’s ok, I won’t hate you- I might even like you more. (haha) I am a teenage book nerd, happily living in CA and reading waaay too much. I also have an account on EpicReads.com as bookluver (creative, I know). Now onto the good stuff…
So- the nature of this post is to talk about Tahereh Mafi- and yes, I know she is popular, but I didn’t see many posts related to her on this blog. After this post I will be bringing attention to authors that people sometimes don’t know about- authors that should be getting more attention.
Tahereh Mafi is the author of Shatter Me, Unravel Me, and Destroy Me (this one is an e-novella only). Shatter Me is first in the series and I can personally promise that you will love it! (if you haven’t read it already, that is.)
For those of you checking out the series, the Shatter Me world revolves around Juliette, a girl whose touch has the power to end a life. Juliette has been locked up for 264 days in an asylum, due to her strange fatal power. Juliette lives out her life-until one day Adam Kent, a soldier sent to make sure that she was still sane, shatters her world, and possibly everyone else’s.
I dare you to find out what happens next.
The finale to the series, Ignite Me, comes out in February 2014. The cover was revealed recently and it is AWESOME:
So- stay tuned for my next review/summary/list (it will be awesome. you know it will.) and find out more about Tahereh Mafi at http://www.taherehbooks.com/
