Get to know the author (#3): Tahereh Mafi

"Get To Know The Author" is a bi-weekly meme, where I talk about my favorite authors or some that deserve a little bit more attention! After all, they're the ones who create all those amazing characters and unique worlds! Original idea from Melissa @ In A Bookish World.

Today I'm honored to introduce you to the beautiful and amazing Tahereh Mafi, author of the popular and very successful books of my alltime-favorite trilogy, the "Shatter Me" series!

About Tahereh Mafi

Tahereh Mafi is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the SHATTER ME series. She was born in a small city somewhere in Connecticut and currently resides in Santa Monica, California, where she drinks too much caffeine and finds the weather to be just a little too perfect for her taste. When unable to find a book, she can be found reading candy wrappers, coupons, and old receipts. Foreign rights, for the books, have sold in 25+ territories to-date and film rights have been optioned by 20th Century Fox.


 Books by the autho


Shatter Me. 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.

  1. Ooh, I'm so excited to see this! I just stumbled on this series this morning while browsing Goodreads and I immediately added it to my TBR pile. The premise sounds fabulous, and I am beyond excited to start reading it! I apparently have been hiding under a rock to have just heard about these books, but what can I say?! haha Thanks for this in depth look at the author behind this series!
