[#4] Book Review: Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Unravel Me 
(Shatter Me #2)
Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)


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.


Unravel Me… I really loved the first book of this trilogy so I was very excited to finally read this one. In Shatter Me: I’d loved it, plain and simple while in Unravel Me: I’d loved it and hated it at the same time, it’s just so complicated. It made me feel like throwing the book away yet made me so eager to know what would happen next. Thought, they have this comparison that I couldn’t ignore; they both left me quite speechless…

If I would to choose the character that resembles me, it would be Castle, because like him, I am so disappointed with Juliette. I expected too much on this book and I’m a little disappointed with how it went. I mean, the book and writing of Mafi was incredible, it just that Shatter Me was so good and I expected this to be much more.

The flow of events was surprising, annoying yet lovable. It’s like fire and ice with this book. And I loved it for it brought out some hidden emotions in me. Surprising, there was a lot of events that made me stand and say “OMG! I didn’t see that coming!” There were a lot of revelations that’s so amazing and mind-blowing. Then, there’s annoying, it has everything to do with the characters. Juliette, you know how I feel about her. She and Warner got some kind of schizophrenia; it’s hard to figure them out. Adam, I’m in love with him! He and Kenji were the lovable part.

The love triangle had been so pronounced now. I think I’d liked it better when there’s not too much of it. They’re starting to do that ‘blindly in-love’ thing just like all the other YA book around. I’d never been subtle in my last review that I first fall in love with it because it’s different and it has no blindly-in-love thing going on.

All in all, it’s still a really great book that’s worth reading even though it gave me some headache XD Mafi is incredible.

How much I loved it?
