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.  (From: Goodreads)

Title: Unravel 

Series: Shatter Me, #2

Genres: YA, sci-fi, dystopian(?)

Author: Tahereh Mafi 

Publisher: Harper Collins (US), 2013

Edition: hardcover, 461 pages 

“The truth,” he says, “is a painful reminder of why I prefer to live among the lives.”

The second book in this series.  First thing first, I’ve already grown out of reading dystopian novels.  I believe if I had read this series a few years earlier (or even just two years before), I would probably love it.

Things I Liked About It

– the writing 

I like Tahereh’s writing a lot.  I hope I could read some other works of her.

– the villain Anderson

What he did made him a perfect villain!  Cold-hearted and down to real business, no string attached.

Things I Disliked About It

– the father Valentine trope 

Well…it was just…I’ve seen this before.  In The Mortal Instruments, Jace and Sebastian/Jonathan shared a father a.k.a. papa Valentine.

– Juliette’s greed or was it lust?

I’m totally fine with love triangles as long as you don’t want or be with two people at the same time.

It was definitely not my imagination because Juliette did know she had some problem.

And I’m so sick, I’m so confused, because I want him, I want him and I want Adam, too, and I want too much and I’ve never felt like a monster than I have tonight.

– Warner’s obsession 

I don’t understand why Warner kept saying how much he loved Juliette.  He didn’t really know her.  Sure, he had all her information, but that wasn’t the same.

“I don’t want to be Warner with you,” he says.  “I want it to be different now.  I want you to call me Aaron.”

Man, that was demanding and controlling.  I haven’t watched or read 50 shades of grey, but it seems like what Mr. Grey would say.

One more thing, after Warner read Juliette’s journal, he told her hat he wanted to kill the people who had chased her down.   ???   Why didn’t he just have some reflection on himself?  Was he that forgetful that he treated her horribly?

Recommendation 

I don’t recommend this series, but a lot of people have already read this series.  I’ve heard about both good and bad things.

That’s all for my review of Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi.  Have you read this book?  Let me know what you think!

Have a great weekend!  Hopefully you’re at a place not so hot.  😎 I’m melting.  Happy reading!  Bye bye 👊
