Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi ❥ Short Book Review

Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow. I truly don’t understand why it took me so long to read this book.

Unravel Me was everything I wanted it to be. It was action-filled, intense and packed with romance. I loved every second of it. I really liked getting to know Kenji a little more in this book and finally meeting the scary Commander Anderson. Did I mention yet that I am absolutely obsessed with Warner? Well, let’s just say I finished this book feeling extremely satisfied. Chapter 62 wasn’t too shabby either 😉

It’s no secret that I absolutely adored Shatter Me and I’m so glad this sequel lived up to my expectations.

tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
it’s almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She’s finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam’s life.

–What book are you eagerly waiting on?

Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5) by Tahereh Mafi ❥ Short Book Review

Destroy Me (Shatter Me, #1.5)Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I could not help but fall in love with Warner while reading Shatter Me, so getting to see his point of view in this book was amazing! Destroy Me takes place right where Shatter Me left off and focuses on Warner’s search for Juliette.
In this novella we get to see into Warner’s deepest, darkest secrets and see deeper into his character than we did in 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.

Along the way she encounters Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust…and her heart.

Rule #3: Don’t stare at invisible faeries.
Aislinn has always seen faeries. Powerful and dangerous, they walk hidden in the mortal world. Aislinn fears their cruelty – especially if they learn of her Sight – and wishes she were as blind to their presence as other teens.
Rule #2: Don’t speak to invisible faeries.
Now faeries are stalking her. One of them, Keenan, who is equal parts terrifying and alluring, is trying to talk to her, asking questions Aislinn is afraid to answer.
Rule #1: Don’t ever attract their attention.
But it’s too late. Keenan is the Summer King, who has sought his queen for nine centuries. Without her, summer itself will perish. He is determined that Aislinn will become the Summer Queen at any cost — regardless of her plans or desires.
Suddenly none of the rules that have kept Aislinn safe are working anymore, and everything is on the line: her freedom; her best friend, Seth; her life; everything.
Faery intrigue, mortal love, and the clash of ancient rules and modern expectations swirl together in Melissa Marr’s stunning twenty-first-century faery tale.
