Stop hating on Warner guys. Some of us actually find crazy, psychotic boys attractive.

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

I am so excited for this book to come out but there is one thing I am seriously worrying about...

The Dreaded Love Triangle of Doom...with Warner

Its 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:

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 ...more

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. XD

I 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

WHAT 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

Holy crap! I’m not gonna lie to myself or anyone. I like it. I like this book. I usually have second book syndrome but this problem didn’t happen to me with Shatter Me series because this book is so much better than the first one and I’m impressed. Even though I super hate love triangle like this, I can’t stop myself from reading it. It was frickin’ addictive and I’m officially addicted to this series. No way I’m not going to continue it.

P.S. For the book alone, I would give it 4 st

Juliette is free from the Reestablisment, but never will be free from her lethal touch and from Warner, who love her more than she ever thought.

Persued by her past and terrified by her future, Juliette knows she will have to make great changes in order to get what she really wants.

This book was definitely better than its precursor in terms of plot and character development. The romance in this book made my heart flutter and it took every ounce of self control for me not to spontaneously combust. The last few chapters paced rapidly with an interesting turn of events.

“Time goes on even when we do not.”

Well ... this book legit unraveled me. Warner ! *scream* You're very bad yet you're so sweet I wanted to hear what you're thinking. Admittedly I couldn't stop smiling and turning the pages while he's strolling around the scenes. This book is everything I could ask for. The romance between Adam, Juliette and Warner is a hurricane, it destroys everything barring its way and tore my little heart out. However, Mafi increased the pace of this book, and I also e
Unravel Me is successful to retain the mind shattering effect on me same as the first book did. I would say the total series literally barraged my mind with it gripping actions, lots of power play and extremely sensual romance.

And the writing; it’s poetic and rhythmic. The author knew how to make an ordinary situation extraordinary by using her gorgeous prose in a very beautiful way. She even knows how to beautify even those little moments that won’t probably get noticeable, and there she makes

Actual rating is 4.5 stars.

I truly love this series, and I wouldn't call it a guilty pleasure despite the number of negative things I've seen said about it. There's just something so . . . gripping about it. It's the kind of series that's easy to devour quickly, at least for me.

I've actually always adored Tahereh Mafi's writing style. Though there are sentences that just sound ridiculously cheesy, there are also some very beautiful prose. And it really just stands out from other YA books, with t

Unfortunately, I liked this one less than the first time. I think it’s because it was mostly drama that I have already discovered and now on the second reading they have lost their spark of surprise. Well, I still enjoyed it nonetheless.

This book was a huge step up from Shatter Me! Tahereh impressed me big time. I think what makes these books so enjoyable are the characters. Each are interesting and have so much depth. After about 100 pages I found this book sososo hard to put down. I'm interested to see how Ignite Me ties things up!

It's like a drop of honey, a field of tulips blooming in the springtime. It's a fresh rain, a whispered promise, a cloudless sky, the perfect punctuation mark at the end of a sentence. And it's the only thing in the world keeping me afloat.”

The mental toll this took on me....I can't even express it. This drained me so much.

Me and human like the intellectuals we are buddy read this book, despite both disliking Shatter Me. But change of plans, instead of reading all 6 books, we are only reading the first trilogy in the series, because we don't hate ourselves that much.

“Sticks and stones keep breaking my bones but these words, these words will kill me.”

Going into this book, I wanted Warner to die. And coming out of this book, I recognise Warner is extremely valid and deserves better. Any author who can turn my mind about a character around like that deserves kudos, to be honest.

Shatter Me is essentially about: two moody boys and their ridiculous crush on the bad bitch girl who everyone underestimates until she shoots them in the kneecaps and honestly? I'

WOW, I didn't remember so many things that happen in this book, even that big revelation! What is wrong with me? LOL. It's definitely a wonderful book, it has so many things happening, I love how everyone prepares for war and I definitely love the moments of Warner and Juliette in this book, they are gold. Plus: That ending! OMG, it has killed me all over again!

Beware of spoilers!

You'd think that after my dreadful experience of Shatter Me would keep me away from the second book of this series. But no. The cover caught my eye. I wanted to see what other overdone, laughable, simply nonsensical metaphors and similes she had. And this review will do nothing to please those who loved this book.


There was only one reason I decided to read this book.
