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

What-I-Thought

I’ve read this book a while ago!  Like a while while ago, and I felt like rereading it last week. So here I am, typing this review at last. I just LOVE Tahereh Mafi’s writing! Her writing is so captivating and it sets her apart from all other dystopian books out there.  The crossed out sentences, the word building, her beautiful prose and the repetition is just beautiful. (Am I gushing? I guess I am… but who cares! This is my blog!!)

Tahereh manages to make every scene so gripping and intense. The scenes between Juliette and Adam are so believable, and I can only imagine how good of a writer you have to be in order to bring Juliette’s feelings across so utterly believable! She’s never been able to enjoy human touch and for her to experience it for a first time is really emotional. The way it is written is just so powerful! Every now and then I just take a pause to try and absorb how beautifully she phrased she something.

The character development is enormous. Juliette slowly grows out of her insecurities and doubts (not entirely but she does little by little). Warner though was the biggest surprise of all. He grew immensely! After book one I was rooting for Adam all the way… but Damn! Warner crept up on me big time and made his way into my heart. You get so see his soft side and really I feel so conflicted about my feelings about him! What happened in between Shatter Me and Unravel Me? I hated him, actually I think he appalled me in Shatter Me, but it has completely turned around! (Although reading Destroy Me (Shatter Me #1.5) might have helped along with that as well).

Then we have Kenji, another great character! Whenever Juliette needed a kick in the ass, he was the one to deliver it. I felt kind off bad for her, but she did need it and in the end I really felt like she took it to heart and started to work on changing herself. He has this totally lovable witty side and a serious diplomatic side as well.

And then there is Chapter sixty-two… Phew! Explosive! Like really explosive and oh so steamy. Warner managed to turn me into a freaking puddle every single time.

The plot and story progression is so addictive. And I feel that there are just so many layers to this story. Reading this book takes you on an emotional ride, it is beautifully written, I simply have no other words for it.
