ADFJAKSDFASDFJASDKFASJDFLKASDJFKsdfjAL!

Boy, I'm so late that I'm already early again!
Like, "full circle and right on the Hype Train" late! *lol*

Well, at least I won't have to wait an entire year for this! ;-P
Sometimes to be a bookish snail definitely has its advantages. XD

This series has been my favorite since I first read the original three and still continues to be! I was excited to be back in Kenji's head because he's such an awesome character! He feels real, and his head is a mess with so many thoughts. And he's funny! But also emotional, caring, and loyal.

I really liked the scenes between him and Nezeera because, like him, we never know whether to trust her or not. But from this one novella, we learn so much, about him, about her, about the other

October can’t come soon enough ❤ Kenji POV confirmed by Tahereh! COVERRRR game is strong! I love it 🥰!!

I’m was hoping for another Warner POV, and terrified (and magnetically drawn to the idea) that we’d get an Emmaline POV. Think of all the things she could tell us...

But I love me some Kenji! I’m so in for this!!

5.0 Amazing stars!

Wow! This was so much better than expected!

Usually, novellas can be either hit or miss. "Reveal Me" was a complete grand slam, touch all the bases!



You may think I'm giving this a glowing 5 stars because I'm a huge fan of this series, but you'd be absolutely WRONG!

This novella is the perfect bridge between "5.0 Amazing stars!

Reveal Me" was a complete grand slam, touch all the bases!



You may think I'm giving this a glowing 5 stars because I'm a huge fan of this series, but you'd be absolutely WRONG!

This novella is the perfect bridge between "Defy Me" and the final book in the "Shatter Me" series.

Not only is it in our BFF's Kenji's POV which was absolutely fabulous, but it gives us some pretty raw insight into Kenji's state of mind which I didn't think I needed but was left floored.

And it hits on some very relevant questions that I myself asked after the end of "DM".

(view spoiler)

I loved how Tahereh didn't take this opportunity to revamp what we already read in "DM". This would've been entertaining but a complete waste of our time.

Instead this one picks up right after the wondrous ending in "Defy Me".

Kenji gave us a side of himself that we've rarely seen.

But sometimes I wonder —
What about me?
Why don't my feelings matter? Other people get to experience a full range of emotions without judgment, but I can't be anything but happy without making most people uncomfortable. Everyone is used to seeing me smiling, being goofy. I'm the fun guy, the easygoing guy. I'm the one everyone can count on for a good laugh. When I'm sad or pissed off no one knows what to do with me.


Truer words couldn't have been spoken and it broke my heart to see how affected Kenji is by his internal loneliness… always feeling the need to put on a happy face… be the positive to everyone's negative.

This novella is Kenji at his barest moments and to be honest, at his best. And I admit while reading this, I too was guilty of wanting "happy, unaffected" Kenji back! But this also made me love him so much more because life hadn't been easy for him either and I know, yes, guilty as charged, that I'd taken him for granted and I've forgotten how much he's lost in his life too.

I feel off balance. Aching for something. I'm losing sight of my purpose, my sense of direction. I always tell myself that I'm fighting every day for hope, for the salvation of humanity, but every time I survive only to return to yet more loss and devastation, something comes loose inside of me. It's like the people and places I love are the nuts and bolts keeping me upright; without them, I'm just scrap metal.

GAH!

We also weren't left hanging to find out how things between Kenji and Nazeera were progressing. LOVED. IT! And wow… was it full on angst! I won't say much more about this because it was fabulous!

Warnette teasers are sprinkled through but of course, never enough for us Warnette fans! But, I gobbled up all we were given and each one filled my heart and made me sooo happy!

Now that ending?!

WOAH!!!!

That just got me chomping at the bit for the final book because I need to know… WHAT IS GOING ON?!

(view spoiler)

I WANT ANSWERS!!!

Don't skip this! You will not regret!




Yay, Kenji! Kenji! Kenji!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE being in Kenji’s head!! But this one was a little different. I worry about my Kenji.

This was a little mysterious, a little worrisome and a whole lot of GREAT to be back in this world!!

I’m being vague because how do you review a little novella without giving to much away. But it was enough of a tease to make me want IMAGINE ME, the LAST book in the series!!! I need it now!!!!!
Clara (Clarylovesbooks)
3 stars because I'm too attatched to these characters to lower my rate but, honestly, this series has become too much lovey-dovey even for my tastes. I'm still curious to know what is going to happen, but since Defy Me it feels like reading fanfiction. By the way, I love Kenji and I enjoyed reading from his pov!

The cover's so pretty! And it's got sparkles!!!! I don't think I ever saw a dystopian book (short story or not) that had sparkles on it (and no, girls in dresses on the cover do not count). I need this right now. I need to know what the sparkles represent.

At this point in thinking maybe I just only ever wanna read stuff from/of Kenji. This series used to be in my top ten but since she continued the series it got demoted. Didn't even feel like the same series tbh. I haven't really enjoyed any of the new things (anything after the third book) except for the Kenji stuff. Still going to finish the series though.

THIS CLIFFHANGER IS SO EVIL!!
HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT TILL SPRING NEXT YEAR?!

God this short novella was a rollercoaster of emotions! one moment you laugh at Kenjis monologue, the next instant you feel sad for him, then you feel happy for him and than everything goes to hell again!

My favorite thing from this book: JELLO!! (bless his mind and soul)
