Book Review: Unravel Me

Unravel Me

it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life."

Thoughts on CoverI absolutely love it! I don't really understand the eye thing (maybe it's because Juliette mentions eyes a lot in the books?), but it's the best cover of the series so far! It's very beautiful and amazing! I also love the purple, blue, and pink coloring. Is it Juliette's eye?

ReviewI started out reading this book as a book just to read because I've had it checked out from the library for awhile, and I kept pushing it aside to read other books first. I didn't want to do that anymore, so I started to read it. Also, at first, I felt as though I was reading it just to read because I wanted to finish it quickly so I could read some other books that I have checked out. Reading just to finish a book and not out of pleasure is not very enjoyable.

That quickly changed about 40-50 pages into the story. I had completely forgotten how much I loved Shatter Me. I am extremely fascinated at how well Tahereh Mafi can write. It's very poetic and descriptive. I am very envious of her talent. Not only is Tahereh Mafi a good writer, but she's able to write a very captivating story. Unravel Me is an excellent sequel to Shatter Me. I was very pleased. The only problem I had with it is that it mainly took place at Omega Point. Shatter Me had many different settings, and I'm not going to lie, a lot more action. For both of these reasons, I was going to make my rating to 4.5 stars. However, Unravel Me, did not disappoint. It is far from being a bad sequel. In fact, the reason why I didn't give it 4.5 stars is due to the fact that there is a lot more passionate romance going on between Warner and Juliette.

Yes, I have switched sides. I am now rooting for Warner. In my review of Shatter Me, I discussed that I loved hating him, but that I prefer Adam. Now I don't hate him at all. I love him. I don't know what it is about him, but I have fallen for him just as Juliette unexpectedly has. As for Adam, I have nothing against him, I really don't. I like him, but the story doesn't get exciting until Warner is there. It's true. I really enjoyed learning many different things about him, things I never would have expected. It seems that he has changed greatly since Shatter Me. In Shatter Me, I wasn't really convinced that he loved Juliette, I just thought he had a strange obsession with her, but I was wrong. And I just love, love, love that Juliette might possibly be in love with him, too. It really makes me excited. The connection that she has with Warner when she speaks with him while he's being held captive is pretty remarkable. Plus, the passionate make out chapter with him was pretty steaming. I felt so many different emotions while reading that chapter. It was so amazing and terrifying and dramatizing at the same time. I simply loved it. I thought that was the last of Aaron Warner in this book, but I was wrong. I was hoping I was wrong, and fortunately, I was. I'm still confused about him, though. He's definitely a mysterious character. Is he good? Is he bad? I think he's both. Regardless, I still love him.

Overall, I was very pleased with this novel. I love all the plot twists and turns that I never expected. I love stories like that. It made me love the story even more. I really liked the end, it made me super excited to read the next book!! I cannot wait to find out more about it--what the title is, what the cover will look like, when it will be released, etc. I am so excited!!


  1. Great review! I can't wait to read the next book either. And I have to say, even though I don't hate Warner anymore, I'm still an Adam fan. ~Pam
