My Thoughts:

     Originally, I’d heard lots of good things about Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi around the web—good reviews, good comments on twitter, etc..  But when I finally got around to reading it, I was kind of disappointed.  It’s not that it was the most horrible book in the world, it’s just that there were some things it could have done without.  All the crossed out sentences, really, it made the book tough to read.  Sometimes there were three or more sentences crossed out on one page.  It was so often that it made my eyes hurt.  Also, I find it kind of odd that all of the detailed explanations/thoughts were the ones that got crossed out, only to be restated in a simplified—often one-word—explanation.  On top of that, I didn’t get the whole thing where the sentence would start on one line, and then there was one word after that—not even capitalized—and then four or more one-word lines later the sentence would finally end.  What?  So, it pains me to say it, but I did not finish this book. Will I be getting the second book in the series? No.
