#WednesdayYA Progress Report: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

As I type this post, I'm on page 128 of Shatter Me.  I've got about 200 pages left of the book, so I'm excited to keep going and see where the story goes.  I thought about posting some quotes, but I am reading an ARC, and I hate to just take the quotes of of GoodReads in case those are wrong.  Instead, I want to touch on aspects of this book.

*Mafi's prose isn't like anything I've read anytime recently in YA lit.  It's so lyrical and lovely that in some places it comes very near to poetry.  There are a few moments where i find myself saying "Really?" but those are rare.  For the most part I find it refreshing to read something so different.

*The world in this book is bleak, and I've only seen a little bit of it so far.  I'm really hoping we get more before the end of the book.

That's all for now! Stay tuned for more updates and thoughts.
