| vlog review |


There is no hiding that I thoroughly enjoyed SHATTER ME, insane writing style and all. I have no regrets and it is not one of my guilty pleasures.

DESTROY ME tells the story of Warner right after the events of Shatter Me and right before UNRAVEL ME. He must overcome the possible threat of a rebellion in his sector, deal with the arrival of his asshole father, and try to quit falling every time he reads Juliet's journal find Juliet before she is found ... and punished.

But, the most interesting part of this series is Warner. His obsession with Juliet is undeniably fascinating and the way he sees things is disturbing... but you can tell there's more to him than what Tahereh lets on, and you get to see some of it in DESTROY ME.

He's cruel and terrifying, but there is a softer side to him, and seemingly, abuse from his father and his life has taken its toll on him.

The way he tells his story is very calculated, crystal-clear manner, unlike Juliet's run-on sentences, paragraphs of detail, and 'thoughtful' point of view.

I am not 'Team Warner', but he can identify with Juliet so well, and I think he understands her better than Adam does. All I could do was feel bad for him. Or laugh when he spent half of the book naked.



Overall, I liked DESTROY ME very much and look forward to the next installment.>

Lisbeth Avery {Domus Libri} Oh naked Warner... I must be buying this book. In all his insanely acts, he's still sexy as hell and so much better than the other love interest. (view spoiler)


Saniya(Will Herondale is mine) IFKR! I loved this book! *_*


Katy Still Team Adam, too.


Zuleeza "GO LOOK".

Yes, master.

*Several minutes later*

LOL! Your face expression whenever you said 'naked'.

Priceless.


Oceana Fern Lol, Zuz. Now I must go see myself.


Oceana Fern EWWWWWWW

I haven't even done that many vlogs and I could tell how terrible that one was.


Zuleeza You should vlog all your reviews, Oceana! :D


Zuleeza Eh, that wasn't terrible at all. Stop being conscious!


Oceana Fern Zuleeza wrote: "You should vlog all your reviews, Oceana! :D"

I'm going to start trying to when I go back to my dad's. I vlog some, but not all, because sometimes I don't have anything to say.

Fine, fine, fine! I still think it was crap.


Zuleeza LOL! If only I could tag Lisbeth... I'm pretty sure she also thinks you're a fab vlogger. :)


Lisbeth Avery {Domus Libri} Here I am!! *waves arms* I do think you're a fabulous vlogger! It was amazing!

Hey! Hey! I have this idea. Don't you guys live near each other or something? Maybe you could co-vlog together occasionally!

Now, that'll be epic.


Oceana Fern We live nowhere near each other. Sadly.

She has been in one of my vlogs, though, WHICH MEANS YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT

*sobbing*

But she actually will be in lots of mine, since we have an announcement coming up. Even though I think you all know already.

My new vlog is up, BTW. I have a troll and he disliked it. <.<


Lisbeth Avery {Domus Libri} We don't live by each other :( I would so be in every one of her vlogs. Personally that is. I'll be a guest star in some more soon. :)


Zuleeza aaaaAAAAAAaaaaaa...I already watched that vlog but I didn't watch it full LOL! Sorry~

*confession bear mode*

I don't even own a YouTube account...

Anyway, you have to name the video with something like Oceana feat Lisbeth or something like that!!! Tee hee

Btw Lisbeth sounds so sexy LOL!

Lisbeth is a sexy name, ask Oceana. She'd agree. ;)"


Lisbeth was complaining about how awful she sounded, and I was like, "ERMAGERDS SHUT UP YOU SOUND FINE".

Told you! You sounded great.


Lisbeth Avery {Domus Libri} Guess who totally misunderstood what she meant by "Lisbeth sounds sexy"? *headdssk* No, no she doesn't. She sounds terrible. Totally not sexy.

Come on! That husky voice with that pixie cut hair? You're lucky I don't have a younger brother. Otherwise, I'll forced you to go out with him.

WHAT ARE YOU SMOKING PEOPLE!?!?! I don't like my voice, it sounds weird.

Zuleeza Oceana, somehow I think that guy who commented on your latest video wasn't trolling. I think he just a denial wimp who thinks unicorn and nutella fairies do exist.

Lisbeth has a sexy voice. She knows I like it. :D

He was going around to every single thing having to do with the shooting and spamming them with those comments.

SERIOUSLY WHO BELIEVES THAT SHIT
PEOPLE ARE RETARDED

You guys are literally cracking me up.

Nobody has ever told me I have a sexy or sultry voice. You guys are on something.


Lisbeth Avery {Domus Libri} You do darling! No one tells me I have a nice voice either.


Oceana Fern I do! Zuz does.


Zuleeza Guys, if you're smoking something, we're meant to share it!


Kat (Le Pauvre Cœur) Did you watch the trailer for Destroy Me? THE GUY ACTING AS WARNER IS TOTALLY HOT. And naked. And shirtless. In the motherfucking trailer.
