Tahereh Mafi has already taken the literary world by storm with her New York Times-bestselling “Shatter Me” series. Now, she’s wowing us with her creativity and spunk as she expresses herself through her social media accounts and lifestyle blog.

On top of being the spunky, creative individual she is, Tahereh just announced that her newest novel, Furthermore, will be available next summer. Oh, and ABC Signature Studios has optioned “Shatter Me” for a TV series.

Here are 15 times Tahereh oozed more uber-cool than the Internet knows what to do with.

1. When she flawlessly rocked print-on-print, with the perfect liner to boot.
