Title: Unravel Me
Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publication Date: February 5, 2013
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.
There are very few dystopian YA books I would actually consider art, but Unravel Me is definitely at the top of my list. If you thought Shatter Me was good, prepare yourself for the utter amazingness that is Unravel Me.
I thought Shatter Me was incredibly well-written, but in Unravel Me, Mafi’s writing became even more poetic and beautiful.
Unravel Me has everything you could possibly want in a YA book: a dystopian setting, romance, action, and a paranormal twist.
This book even had a couple steamy scenes that had me super jealous of Juliette, even the ones with Warner. I now have a love/hate relationship with Tahereh Mafi, because she made me love Warner! Before I read this book, I didn’t understand how there could possibly be a Team Warner because he’s a bag of dicks, but after reading Unravel Me, I might actually be on it. I love a messed up boy, and Warner is no exception to the rule. Don’t get me wrong, I love Adam, but this is yet another love triangle I can’t decide how I want to turn out. Also, can there be a Team Kenji, please? I love him.
I also liked that Juliette became a little stronger in this book than she had been in Shatter Me. I get that she’s damaged and afraid, but I was a little worried she would stay that way for Unravel Me as well. Juliette’s still wary of other people at the end of the book, but I felt like she was getting there.
Unravel Me was simply amazing. Steamy and action-packed, it will be a quick read despite its actual size, and will leave you with a major book hangover. Ignite Me, why can’t you be out now?!
