His smile is laced with dynamite. “Go to sleep.”
“Go to hell.”
He works his jaw. Walks to the door. “I’m working on it.”
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 can shoot a hundred numbers through the chest and watch them bleed decimal points in the palm of my hand.”
With seeing so many reviews saying how terrible it was and then a few saying how lovely it was; I had to read it.
After the first chapter I was contemplating not even finishing it. The
crossed out words is kind of bothersome. It doesn’t flow like a river it’s like hitting brick walls every sentence.
I never ended up liking Warner.
“Girls are always talking about electricity in their romance, but none are too happy to actually be electrocuted, apparently. Bloody confusing, is what it is.”
The plot was so interesting though. Not knowing where she was or what was going on was irritating, but it made me really imagine her world. Tahereh Mafi had a mad driving plot and I live for it.
The budding romance and friendships are just goals. I’ve heard many people say they hated Adam, but I ship him with Juliette. I’d die for this cutesy, cheesy, cliché romance. Romance has always been my forté, though.
There’s so many good quotes and smart-ass remarks. The badass comments and sarcasm is me through and through.
“She is a walking weapon in society.”
Character development was kind of iffy, but the personalities made up for it.
I will be reading the rest of the series at some point!! Recommend!!!!
“My life is four walls of missed opportunities poured into concrete walls.”
“Find me a cure for these tears, I’d really like to exhale for the first time in my life.”
“My body is a carnivorous flower, a poisonous houseplant, a loaded gun with a million triggers and he’s more than ready to fire.”
