5 THE PAST WILL NOT FORGET ME ★'s

“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 has just conspired. My strongest emotion throughout reading 'Restore Me' was a deep sadness. Heartache. It was like having a bowling ball sitting on my chest the whole time and I couldn't breathe. It put tears in my eyes in the second chapter...THE SECOND DAMN CHAPTER!!! Witch is in Warner's POV. So now you understand exactly how long I've had this weight on my chest and it's still there. You won't just cry, you will also laugh and smile and swoon (Over Warner). 'Restore Me' was so unbelievably unbearably wonderfully Painful! My heart broke piece by piece until finally, what was left of it just shattered and I don't know how to put it back together. I am equal parts happy and pissed off, but in a good way, if that makes any sense. I devoured this in ONE day! It was so captivating, it had me at the edge of my seat. The world, the plot, the writing and the characters are everything. The best way to describe what happens is this- One bad thing happens after another, revelation after revelation, about the Reestablishment, things about Juliette and Warner's past. I'm still in shock after that ending!! I have no idea how in the hell Tahereh Mafi expects us to wait a WHOLE YEAR to read the next book. When I'm already dying to know what happens! This wait is gonna be the death of me :(

“This, I think, is the way to die.
I could drown in this moment and I’d never regret it. I could catch fire from this kiss and happily turn to ash. I could live here, die here, right here, against his hips, his lips. In the emotion in his eyes as he sinks into me, his heartbeats indistinguishable from mine.
This. Forever. This.”


“It hits me with a painful force, the reminder. Of just how much I love her. God, I love all of her. Her impossibilities, her exasperations. I love how gentle she is with me when we’re alone. How soft and kind she can be in our quiet moments. How she never hesitates to defend me.
I love her.”


*Omg! That cover is absolutely freaking stunning!!!*

“In the steady thrum that accompanies quiet, my mind is unkind to me. I think too much. I feel, perhaps, far more than I should. It would be only a slight exaggeration to say that my goal in life is to outrun my mind, my memories.”

“So this—
This is agony.
This is what they talk about when they talk about heartbreak. I thought I knew what it was like before. I thought I knew, with perfect clarity, what it felt like to have my heart broken, but now—now I finally understand.”

“I think you’re wonderful.” “Wonderful, huh?” “Yep,” I say, and link my arm in his. “You’re smart and funny and kind and — ” “Handsome,” he says. “Don’t forget handsome." “And very handsome”

“Here in the dark, dusty corners of my mind I feel a strange relief. I am always welcome here in my loneliness, in my sadness in this abyss, there is a rhythm I remember. The steady drop of tears, the temptation to retreat, the shadow of my past the life I choose to forget has not
will never
ever
forget me”

Tahereh Mafi
“But now Warner’s eyes are moving, studying me. He looks at me with such intensity I wonder if he’s even aware he’s doing it. I wonder if he knows that when he looks at me like that I can feel it as acutely as if his bare skin were pressed against my own, that it does things to me when he looks at me like that and it makes me crazy.”
Tahereh Mafi, Restore Me

Tahereh Mafi
“I touch his face, almost without meaning to, gently , like he might be a ghost, like this might be a dream and the tips of my fingers graze his cheek, trail the line of his jaw and I stop when his breath catches, when his body shakes almost imperceptibly and we lean in as if by memory eyes closing lips just touching
“Give me another chance, ” he whispers, resting his forehead against mine.
My heart aches, throbs in my chest. “Please,” he says softly, and he’s somehow closer now, his lips touching mine as he speaks and I feel pinned in place by emotion, unable to move as he presses the words against my mouth, his hands soft and hesitant around my face and he says, “I swear on my life,” he says, “ I won’t disappoint you” and he kisses me
Kisses me right here, in the middle of everything, in front of everyone.”

“And I pull her in. Press my forehead to hers. “Those who do not understand you,” I say softly, “will always doubt you.”
She leans back, just an inch. Looks up.
“And I,” I say, “I have never doubted you.”
“Never?”
I shake my head. “Not once.”
