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? ...more

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.

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 ignoranc

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! Tahereh Mafi SHATTERED, UNRAVELLED and DESTROYED me with ev

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 wonde

"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!

I mean, Ignite me is one of my all time favorite books

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 ended on a sad note and I want to k

“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 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.

“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 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 sensual imagery, nothing like the jump between Throne of glass book 1 (upper young adult) to almost porn XXX content that you'll

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

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.

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

okay so i just finished reading this for a second time today and i‘m still SHAKEN. Tahereh really did THAT. she truly changed the entire game and I'M LIVING FOR IT.

god, this book had me so STRESSED even the second time around and i just wanna announce that restore me will be the only thing i‘m gonna talk about for the next year until we get book 5.

what the fuck. i‘m gonna spend the next couple of weeks in hibernation because this book RUINED ME (in the best possible way).

In preparation for Defy Me, I decided to revisit this story. This time in Audiobook format.

I have found so much joy in audiobooks, and they're perfect for rereading!
