Juliette Ferrars thought she'd won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she's still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she's got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

April 2019
I reread this to annotate it before Defy Me came out and still loved it. It was difficult to annotate because there's a new POV and new characters who i love a lot, so i definitely had a field day putting hearts in the margins. Also I love juliette ferrars so much. SO MUCH.

okay but YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO END IT THAT WAY MISS TAHEREH MAFI! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE FUTURE? I AM CONFUSION... on a more civil note: I liked this! I did feel it needed a bit more.. structure, if that makes sense? I feel like things felt a little all over the place, but I also understand this book was being used to set the ground work for what's to come. ANYWAY THIS REVIEW WASN'T EVEN REALLY A REVIEW BUT MY MESSY THOUGHTS BYE

Real rating: 4.5 stars

I loved this book and I'm so happy that I decided to give the second part of this series a chance.

Right from the beginning, the worldbuilding is finally tackled, which I think is was one of the problems that people had with the first three books. I personally didn't find it a big problem in the books because Juliette was the only POV character and what she didn’t know wasn’t for the reader to know. This is made very clear right from the start of Restore Me, and her ignorance about the world and

By now a few days have passed ever since I finished reading this book, yet my first reaction to “Restore Me” still remains the same.


And those were only four of the nicer things I thought when I closed the last page of this mind-blowing book! After reading this I’m shook to the core and my feelings are still all over the place!

I don't know how I'm supposed to react to that ending. To the book as a whole, actually.

I'm just not sure this was what I was expecting. Actually, no. This was definitely not what I was expecting. Despite not being a fan of this series in the beginning, it really started to grow on me as the characters grew and the plot progressed. By the end of the third book, I swear I had to be one of its biggest fans. Beside the obvious reason of my love for the Shatter Me series (Warner in case you're wondering. He is

"How did I think people ruled the world? Did I really imagine it would be so simple? That I might control the fabric of society from the comfort of my boyfriend's bedroom?"

1) Shatter me ★★★★☆
2) Unravel me ★★★★★
3) Ignite me ★★★★★

This was painful and perfect at the same time and I think Tahereh did the right thing by adding new books to the original trilogy. With just one book she gave the story, the world and the characters so much more depth!

Yeah I read this book like super freaking fast!


I wish I could give this book a million stars ✨ , because 5 is not enough.
This book just fucked with my mind in the best and worst way possible.
I’m happy about it, don’t get me wrong, but also pissed 😤 you know?

The story keeps getting better and better and crazier then ever.
So much happened that I had at least 5 heart-attacks.
I’m absolutely more in love with this series then I was before. I’m so excited and sad at the same time for the sequel, because it will be more clfast!

people are idiots, love. their opinions are worthless.

i wasn’t going to a write anything out here but seeing as people are [warner voice] idiots i feel something should be said.

it’s so clear when people give this book a low rating that they truly never understood what these books were about and don’t character development relationship development works. p/>

“I love that the girl who blushes so easily in my arms is the same one who would kill a man for hurting me.”

I don't know what to do. I don't know what to say. Wow! This book left me speechless. Now I'm staring at the wall of my bedroom and keep thinking that I really want to unread Restore Me so bad. I want to do whatever that must be done to bring back the moment before I picked up the book and I'd tell myself to never read this. EVER.

Full review HERE!

Here’s a list of things you will NOT expect from Restore Me:

-Any of the plot twists, seriously, not one
-Having your chest ripped open while Tahereh Mafi stands over you manually pumping your heart for you and letting you know that at a moments notice she can ruin your life and end you

Because she really did just do that, she really left us with one of the most devastating cliffhanger I’ve ever read. Tahereh, also said she didn’t think this book ende

“I cannot let the broken girl inside of me inhale all that I've become. I cannot revert back to another version of myself. I will not shatter, not again, in the wake of an emotional earthquake.”

“The destruction of the world didn’t happen overnight, and neither will saving it.”

Holy. Fucking. Shit. That was insane! I can't even begin to process what the hell I'm feeling, because there are way, way, way, to many emotions going through me at the moment. My mind is reeling at everything that hasearthquake.”

I love it! I don't think it's MY Warner's eye? I love that it matches perfectly the rest of the covers of the previous books!

I always imagine my man Warner's eye more masculine.

Are you new to the Shatter me series? I have to tell you that the series start in the young adult side and by book 3 we have more sex. Not graphic, mostly sens

“Idiots are highly flammable, love. Let them all burn in hell.”

Let's be honest, Restore me by itself is NOT a bad book, Restore me as book 4 in a series is bad!

I say this with a broken heart as I always recommend this series when I am asked about good series and 2 things account for this: The poetic writing style and the character development which is one of the best I have ever read!

I say this with a broken heart as I always recommend this series when I am asked about good series and 2 things account for this: The poetic writing style and the character development which is one of the best I have ever read!

I wasn't very happy with Ignite me ending as I wanted more, and the story had more potential for sure which left me reeling with excitement when I saw that we're getting an extension!

I know that Tahereh listened to the fans when she added Warner POV, more Kenji and less poetic writing!
That may not seem bad, right?
It actually is because she had destroyed the whole development that she spent 3 books working on, Juliette is annoying and childish as in book. Warner is not Warner, I think she flipped the whole character to make him softer, once again, not good!

And what about the other secondary characters?! You can't just ignore all of them and mention only glimpses of them...

Even Kenji, one of my all time favorite characters had a little change, the character was a bit off and I can say that because he was so relatable :/ But I still like him and the 2 stars are for him!

The story could have started with the last scene in this book... I don't know what to say.
I only hope that book 5 is better.

This is really hard to explain but I feel like I just read a dramatic af fanfic. For some reason I couldn't even process that this was a LEGIT addition to the series. I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing though. It's been ages since I read the first three shatter me books so maybe that's why the characters seemed a little off and the plot line was a little bit odd. Overall, I enjoyed it but I'm still really confused about wtf this book was. But I'm excited for the next one eit ...more

Okay, so I was super duper scared to go into this one since Shatter Me is my favorite series ever. But of course I was intrigued. Especially when I found out it was going to be told in two perspectives, and one of those being Warner!

I loved that this book was dark, depressing, and addicting. I already knew going in, since it was going to be book number 4 and there are going to be six total, that there were going to be things that would piss me off and drive me crazy. And boy did they

Re-read July 2018

Okay, I had to read this again because it was just too amazing the first time. But the second time around was even better! The PAIN of it all! I seriously can't wait to see where this story takes us next!

I am keeping my rating at a solid 5 stars!

Tahereh's writing keeps surging especially when she writes Warner's character. The words, the sentence structures... the DEPTH! It blows me away.

I will add that I've been intrigued by Warner listening to "Like A Rolling Stone" by B

Going into this book was a weird experience for me. When this trilogy ended back in 2014 it ended abruptly and with no epilogue. No even a hint of what may happen after Juliette sized control over Sector 45 and one of my issues with the trilogy was its lack of world building -so much wasted potential.

But when the news hit and suddenly we were getting more books? Boy, was I excited. Yes! This is one of the few “finished” series that deserved more books. I was thrilled. Hesitating but thrilled.

What. The. Hell. I'm pretty sure if you've read this book already then you know exactly what I'm talking about. Every single time I thought something was going well in this book or tried to figure what was going on, I was proven horribly wrong.

What you will not expect: pretty much all of the plot twists. Well actually pretty much everything.
What you will get: tahereh mafi playing with your emotions and hurting you in places you never knew existed.
