Did you miss the fabulous Tahereh at the Dark Days event? Shame. She was awesome, and she had the coolest purse I've ever seen in the history of time, and I thought about mugging her for it but that seemed woefully unprofessional and so I didn't, even though I'm pretty sure the law would have been on my side. I guess we all have regrets. Well, anyway, check this awesome review written by local bloggers GIRLS ON THE WEB. We met this fabulous blogger at Tahereh's event, where we did not mug Tahereh for her purse but thought very seriously about it. Check this *fab* review:

"Shatter Me is a thrilling book full of adventure, superpowers and love. In this book the protagonist, Juliette, starts out in an asylum with nothing but a broken pen and a notebook. She is not in this place because she is crazy, but rather because she is considered a threat to the human race. After almost a year, she sees someone again-they have sent her a roommate. Why have they sent her a roommate, she wonders? It turns out, it is because they want to use her as a weapon. Will she let them or will she rebel? Read the book to find out. This book was absolutely amazing! You don’t have to like superheroes to like this book. I couldn’t sleep until I finished it. Recommended for ages 14+.
 
Shatter Me is the first novel by Tahereh Mafi and is expected to be the first book of a trilogy. Mafi’s writing style is unique allows the reader to get to know the characters better. This book is truly one of a kind." --Girls on the Web

 Don't forget! You can get your OWN copy of FRACTURE by Megan Miranda signed at our upcoming event!
"Although it took me a while to finally sit down and read Fracture, I was not disappointed. Fracture is definitely a pretty quick read, at only 264 pages, but each page is filled with so much emotion it was hard to put it down for long periods of time. I especially loved the relationship between Delaney and all of the most important people in her life and how everyone is so affected by her drowning. Fracture was an amazing read that had me wanting more and more until the very end when I was finally satisfied.

Reading Fracture by Megan Miranda is like listening to one of Beethoven’s symphonies. At first, the story starts slowly, building up to an amazing crescendo and cascading into a perfect finale. Miranda’s writing is just beautiful, she managed to keep me interested enough in the story without feeding me too much information all at once. When Delaney felt happy, I felt happy for her. When Delaney cried, I cried with her. When Troy kissed Delaney in his kitchen, I got butterflies and I could feel my face lighting up. When I finally finished Fracture I was a blubbering mess of emotions. Even remembering how things ended makes me teary-eyed.
 
Fracture is one of those books that you really need to dedicate your time to, because you won’t want to put it down once you start. Miranda takes you into the world of a damaged girl who’s just trying to figure out her life in the wake of a terrible accident. By the end of the book you’ll be laughing, crying, and cheering while still trying to comprehend what happened. I definitely recommend Fracture to lovers of mysteries, thrillers, paranormal, and romances." --Literary Exploration
