    Me looking at this book after reading

    5 5 stars.This book, this book SHATTERED me.I couldn t write a review for the first two days because I was speechless.This book, this world so abandoned, so fucked up And still, people continue to live in it I m amazed at people s survival Even if they are rebels, even if they are soldiers, even if they are just plain poor citizens who still manage to live through terror It amazes me.I know a lot of people don t like Juliette I read a lot of reviews that said Juliette was weak That she thinks only of herself and the chaos called her life That she always whining about herself and her troubles, so much so that she forgets that others have issues too But I can understand her.It happens to most of us, to be honest When we live this useless life A cruel life where we find it hard to find ourselves, difficult to cope with, and therefore difficult to deal with ourselves.Juliette is strong.She went through a brutal life All her life she was treated like a monster So how can she see herself as someone who isn t a monster So what if she found a way out So what if she got to a point in her life where others actually see her as a human being She forgot about it She forgot how to live with people, she forgot how to be human She didn t know what touch was, or love The turnaround in her life from a monster who went through hell, bullying and isolation, to a regular person was fast These were only a few weeks Weeks versus 16 years It s nothing.She found a person who loved her, who could touch her And even that was taken from her And fast.She knew what touch was for a very short time, and she held on to that knowledge It made her realize that she might be an ordinary person But once she discovered that this touch that made her feel human, is hurting the person she love, she took a step back.There s a quote that says If you really love someone, let him go And you know what It rips you from the inside.She isn t selfish, she is not a monster and she is not weak.She s a human being Completely human.And that s the hardest thing, letting a person you love go Sure enough when he s the only one who ever made you feel truly loved.In addition, you can see how she cares about others, how she cares about humanity.Adam said You are one of the bravest, strongest people I ve ever met You have the best heart, the best intentions You re the best person I ve ever known You ve been through the worst possible experiences and you survived with your humanity still intact And I think he s right.Now let s talk about the relationships between Juliette and the boys.In my review for the first book, I wrote that the love between Juliette and Adam isn t real I wrote that Juliette fell in love with him because he was the only person who could touch her and the only one who loved her Touch and love are things she never received Once she found out that a person could do both things, she fell in love with him.In the first book, I noticed that Juliette liked his touch than him specifically I thought maybe, MAYBE in the second book, it would go forward but no.You know, there are a lot of books where the main characters fall in love right away and become couples quickly.It makes no sense to me.You can t fall in love with someone so quickly because you don t really know him You can be attracted to him, sure, but not to love his personality completely It takes time.Rare are the books where the main characters take time to fall in love, which is a shame.In these rare books, you can notice how the characters get to know each other, understand each other, and then they fall in love.It didn t happen with Adam.In the second book, too, Adam and Juliette s relationship was focused on the touch Where is the acquaintance Where are those conversations you get to know each other All the conversations between them were pleas of I can t do without you, let s stay together and Juliette, please don t leave me It s pretty pathetic I really wish you wouldn t waste your affection on someone who has to beg for your love Said Warner to Juliette At least I still have my dignity He said to Adam.And he couldn t be right than that.That s the difference between Adam and Warner Between these two relationships.Juliette hated Warner in the first book I can understand that, he s a psycho but a cute one, shall we agree Without conscience Without emotions But I was from the minority who really liked Warner from the very first book I understood it from the beginning I understood where his insensitivity came from I realized that this was all a mask and walls he had built for himself because of the shit he had been through.Juliette understood that too Why Because although her caring for people remained, she also went through a difficult past I think the reason she didn t build walls was because she didn t have a chance to do so, she spent her life in isolation Warner, on the other hand, has always been in the company of people He was educated to be a ruler, he has learned to be cruel So he built walls to hide his feelings and become a good warrior and commander.In this book you can learn about Warner s life And why so Because unlike Adam, Juliette did speak to Warner The conversations between them taught her who he is, she got to know him And that, THAT S how we usually get to know a person This is how we learn to LOVE a person I even find Warner and Juliette s conventions much intimate than Adam and Juliette s kisses and touches.And of course I have to put the legendary Kenji into this review Is there anyone who doesn t like him I don t think so, it s just not possible.You know, I have my own Kenji.My best friend also learned to laugh at everything, bringing joy to blur the brutal world we live in This is amazing.Kenji isn t only funny He s also caring, smart and loyal Kenji and Juliette have the healthiest relationship in my opinion He can be honest with her, tell her the painful truth in her face and open her eyes Juliette tends to listen to him, take a step back and try to see if what he says is true We, as people, find it hard to accept truth that is unpleasant, and if we tend to listen to a person in such a way, it s because we love him, because we care about his opinion, and trust him I m sure if Kenji wasn t in Juliette s life, she wouldn t be who she was designed to be in this book.And that s it, I think.I really enjoyed this book and I can t wait to go on to the next books.

    I am so excited for this book to come out but there is one thing I am seriously worrying aboutThe Dreaded Love Triangle of Doomwith WarnerIts no secret that I completely despise Warner with every fiber of my being a little over dramatic but still I am so surprised and shocked that so many people like him I mean, I didn t know crazed psychotic war maniac was in this year but thank god I didn t get the memo Here are the things I am praying will happen Adam and Juliette stay together Adam and Juliette get it on Adam s body is described in full detail for an entire chapteror two Warner tries to hit on Juliette but she still doesn t fall for him Warner gets eaten by bears Juliette doesn t spend half the book like almost every other ya character thinking but what if I got with the other guy In the first book, Juliette said she had no feelings for Warner so I m seriously hoping that Tahereh Mafi takes the high road and starts something new in ya the non love triangle It would be really cool if Juliette didn t fall for Warner, not only cause I hate him, but because this would show readers authors that a book doesn t need a love triangle to be amazing Can t wait for the next book Update Why is there all of a sudden Team Kenji Where did he come from Can t a ya heroine have one guy friend that she isn t attracted to and not just because he s gay Kenji alright but if he joins this love whatever, I might just dieCover Alert Look at that cover XDDD

    Juliette and Adam are still hanging out in the underground facility working on the resistance Juliette tries to learn to control her power while Adam undergoes testing to figure out why he can touch Juliette Answers are not good and the two have some problems to work through This was very frustrating I understood Juliette s reasoning but I really hate the back and forth Plus Adam just breaks my heart He is so sweet and wants to make things work with Juliette But they are also dealing with an unruly hostage who will only speak to Juliette.Oh Warner How psycho I truly thought you were Oh how hard I tried to hate you, to stay on Team Adam But I really can t resist you any longer We get down deep with Warner and what you find out is that he is not psycho, his father is Supreme Commander Anderson laughs that Warner has feelings, laughs that Warner tried to kill him as a boy but couldn t, laughs at how weak Warner is for wanting to be near his mother Warner took his mom s last name Awww I love me a mammas boy Not to mention how eloquently, and swoontasticly Warner speaks to Juliette Kenji is such a hilarious scene stealer I am Team Kenji along with everyone else but don t worry he is so not a love interest Just a fun and understanding friend with great comic relief I once again just LOVE the super descriptive writing style It does take a few pages to get back into the swing of it but it makes me feel like I am Juliette I feel completely inside her head and I see and feel everything as her perfectly I feel her frustrations, her bravery, and her courage I love how strong she is becoming It ends similar to the first book, no huge cliffhanger, but it just kind of ends with you still needing and wanting 5 Stars just for Warner s very swoon worthy performance Adam Warner Adam Warner Adam Warner What do I do After Chapter 62 fans self I think Warner You destroy me Juliette, he says and he mouths the name, barely speaking at all, and he s pouring molten lava into my limbs and I never even knew I could melt straight to death I want you, he says He says I want all of you I want you inside and out and catching your breath and aching for me like I ache for you He says it like it s a lit cigarette lodged in his throat, like he wants to dip me in warm honey and he says It s never been a secret I ve never tried to hide that from you I ve never pretended I wanted anything less You you said you wanted f friendship Yes, he says, he swallows, I did I do I do want to be your friend He nods and I register the slight movement in the air between us I want to be the friend you fall hopelessly in love with The one you take into your arms and into your bed and into the private world you keep trapped in your head I want to be that kind of friend, he says The one who will memorize the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body, Juliette No, I gasp Don t don t s say that I want to know where to touch you, he says I want to know how to touch you I want to know how to convince you to design a smile just for me I feel his chest rising, falling, up and down and up and down and Yes, he says I do want to be your friend He says I want to be your best friend in the entire world I want so many things, he whispers I want your mind Your strength I want to be worth your time His fingers graze the hem of my top and he says I want this up He tugs on the waist of my pants and says I want these down He touches the tips of his fingers to the sides of my body and says, I want to feel your skin on fire I want to feel your heart racing next to mine and I want to know it s racing because of me, because you want me Because you never, he says, he breathes, never want me to stop I want every second Every inch of you I want all of it And I drop dead, all over the floor Juliette I can t understand why I can still hear him speaking because I m dead, I m already dead, I ve died over and over and over again.He swallows, hard, his chest heaving, his words a breathless, shaky whisper when he says I m so I m so desperately in love with you He actually begged me not to kill you Laughs again It was just as pathetic as it was surprising Of course then I knew I had to meet you, he says, smiling, staring at me like he might be enchanted I must meet the girl who s managed to bewitch my boy I said to myself This girl who s managed to make him lose sight of his pride his dignity long enough to beg me for a favor, A pause Do you know, he says to me, when my son has ever asked me for a favor He cocks his head Waits for me to answer I shake my head Never He takes a breath Never, not once in nineteen years has he ever asked me for anything Hard to believe, isn t it Yeah, bro Kenji puts his utensils down You are moody It s always Shut up, Kenji Go to sleep, Kenji No one want to see you naked, Kenji When I know for a fact that there are thousands of people who would love to see me naked

    I can t I just can t deal with all those feels I finished reading this book about two days ago, yet my feelings are still too muddled and my mind is spinning and I just can t seem to be able to think straight XDI swear that book killed me and if Mafi s third book Ignite Me is going to be as good as this one I seriously don t even dare to think that it might be even better it actually might be the death of me lol All I can do is to try to write a halfway coherent review of Unravel Me and considering all the feelings and the emotional rollercoaster I went through to try actually seems to be the right choice of words I loved that book I loved it so much I decided to buy the entire Shatter Me series in paperback just so I can mark all my favourite moments lol Okay admittedly most of them will be Warner moments but then again that boy is A.W.E.S.O.M.E.N.E.S.S on two legs No doubt, you know exactly what I mean wriggles eyebrows Anyway you wanted a review and I promise I ll try my very best to give it to you So yeah, we better get this started right The plot The storyline begins with Juliette s life at Omega Point and her constant struggle to become a part of the community Knowing our young heroine it s not all too hard to guess that she s doing a rather awful job at adapting to her new circumstances and even though Adam tries his best to keep her grounded things unfortunately aren t as easy as they seem to be If I would have to sum it up I d say that plot wise there actually doesn t happen a lot Mostly because the rebels are just hiding at Omega Point and try to prepare for war Considering the love story, there happens so much that you barely get a chance to breathe though So yeah if you re a sucker for love stories this book will tear you apart and scatter your remains in all four cardinal directions If you re not into YA love stories, teen angst and heart palpitations I d not only advise you to give this book a wide berth but also would suggest to read another book of your no doubt long to be read list PThe characters WARNING will contain spoilers and many quotes XD Juliette I loved how much she has grown in this book At the beginning of Shatter me she was so insecure and frail, already scratching her sentences before she even got a proper chance to think them to an end Now she has so many different thoughts that she can barely contain them, constantly thinking about everything that s happening, second guessing her own decisions, second guessing other people s decisions, second guessing her relationships with Adam and Warner It was refreshing to see that she s finally beginning to think about the things she wants and that she actually realised that not everything is black and white Especially not Warner lol I took what I wanted I knew better and I took it anyway Adam couldn t have known, he could never have known what it would be like to really suffer at my hands He was innocent of the depth of it, of the cruel reality of it He d only felt bursts of my power, according to Castle He d only felt small stabs of it and was able and aware enough to let go without feeling the full effects.But I knew better.I knew what I was capable of I think about glasses half full and glasses to see the world clearly I think about sacrifice And compromise I think about what will happen if no one fights back I think about a world where no one stands up to injustice And I wonder if maybe everyone here is right.If maybe it s time to fight Maybe it s because he s broken and I m foolish enough to think I can fix him Maybe it s because I see myself, I see 3, 4, 5, 6, 17 year old Juliette abandoned, neglected, mistreated, abused for something out side of her control and I think of Warner as someone who s just like me, someone who was never given a chance in life All I know is that it ll never be safe for me to rely on someone else again, to need constant reassurance of who I am and who I might someday be I can love him, but I can t depend on him to be my backbone I can t be my own person if I constantly require someone else to hold me together Adam Meh, I don t know While I really liked him in the first book and even kind of shipped him with Juliette, my sympathy for him now seems to have vanished I understand that he hates Warner and that he desperately wants to be with Juliette His actions and the way he deals with things definitely don t get my approval though I mean he could have easily saved them a lot of heartbreak if he just would have been honest to his girl and he s so blinded by his love for Juliette and his hatred for Warner that he doesn t even try to understand their point of view I m not saying that he should be all like we re one big happy family but I really would have wished that he would have paused for a moment and would have used his brain lol There are damn good reasons why Juliette decided to steer clear of him and I m sure that if he would have given her some space and time, she probably might have even reconsidered her decision I mean it s obvious she loves him but with his actions he s just pushing her away How is it possible, he says, that I m this close to you and it s killing me that you re still so far away Because it takes a lot than blood to be family, he says And I want nothing to do with him I d like to be able to watch him die and feel no sympathy, no remorse He s the textbook definition of a monster, Adam says to me Just like my dad And I ll drop dead before I recognize him as my brother Warner He s a vision of emerald and onyx, silhouetted in the sunlight in the most deceiving way He could be glowing That could be a halo around his head This could be the world s way of making an example out of irony Because Warner is beautiful in ways even Adam isn t All good things come in threes, right XD I already said it and I say it again Warner is just amazing I still love this boy and he s easily become one of my all time favourite book boyfriends I probably could gush forever and still wouldn t be able to put everything into words so I ll just try my best to form coherent sentences that might be interrupted by high pitched girl squees LOL Just to let you know and warn you in advance P Okay, here we go Warner is probably one of the most complex characters I ever had the pleasure to encounter and believe me I read so many YA books that this actually means something XD Over the course of the book he s actually a prisoner at Omega Point, but since Juliette and Warner seem to have a special connection Castle just decided to assign her to interrogate him There were so many scenes I loved and even though I can t seem to be able to choose, Chapter 45 and Chapter 62 literally, I mean LITERALLY caused me to whimper I had to read those two chapters twice because I was so overwhelmed I couldn t even Jeez I still can t process it view spoiler I told you I hated you Yes, he says He nods Well You d be surprised how many people say that to me I don t think I would His lips twitch You tried to kill me That amuses you Oh, yes, he says, his grin growing I find it fascinating A pause Would you like to know why I stare at him Because all you ever said to me, he explains, was that you didn t want to hurt anyone You didn t want to murder people I don t Except for me I m all out of letters Fresh out of words Someone has robbed me of my entire vocabulary That decision was so easy for you to make, he says So simple You had a gun You wanted to run away You pulled the trigger That was it In case you wondered why this is a spoiler Because for me it s exactly the moment in which everything changes hide spoiler

    Reread Feb 2018WHAT CAN I SAY I LOVE IT And I can t believe this is like the 5th time I ve read this and I still noticed new things.This reread I was really focused on the dynamics between Juliette and Warner and Juliette and Adam There s so much new stuff I noticed about how Adam drags her down versus how Warner exalts her and builds her confidence Ugh I love it Also chapter 62 is still the best chapter of all time and my favorite scene from the whole series is chapter 50 in this book so I was thoroughly clutching my heart the entire timeReread April 2017I have always said that this is my favorite book in the series Accordingly, I have read it only sparingly, because it gives me so many emotions that it basically inhibits my functionality after I finish it So why did I pick this up in the middle of the semester No idea But returning to this was such a grand ol time, especially because it s been nearly 3 years since I ve reread it and I was reacquainted with some scenes that I had forgotten even existed.One thing I will say, though, that is sort of breaking my heart, is that I did not have such a reaction to this book that I used to have I don t know if it s because i m in college now, if i m in some weird reading mood, if i needed to have read the series chronologically, but I really felt numb to this entire thing I remember the last time I read Unravel Me, I had to actually put it down because I was sobbing and it was affecting me so hard that I had to take frequent breaks This time I barely batted an eyelash rereading some of my favorite scenes No butterflies No breaks I don t know if this means I m somehow moving on but this book will always hold a special place in my heart and I love it so much, even if my teenage fangirling tendencies are apparently wearing off I anticipate I ll read Ignite Me when I m home on Easter break.reread july 2014 giggling at this old review February 2013WHATI NEED THE SEQUELOH MY GOSH THIS HAD A TWIST ON LIKE EVERY PAGE AND I CANNOT WAAAAAAIT TO SEE HOW SHE RESOLVES EVERYTHING AND WRAPS IT UP AND OH MY FREAKING POOPERSNICKLE GOODNESS TAHEREH MAFI YOU HAVE AMIED YOUR CAREER TO RUIN MY LIFEi need to go lay down
