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.

My Review
Guess what? I liked this book.
I still shock myself by saying that.
I. Liked. This. Book.
And I think I have finally put my finger on the general reason that I liked this book so much more than I liked Shatter Me. There was a lot more action, therefore more dialogue, which then led to less time for Juliette to...think.
That sounds harsh, but what really bothered me about the first book was that the author had a strange way of putting Juliette’s thoughts onto paper, and I didn’t really like the way that she was going about it. (If you didn’t read my Shatter Me Review, go ahead and read that for more details on why I did not like Shatter Me.)
Another big reason that this book was a lot better than the first was because of our good friend Kenji. Kenji, thank goodness, voiced my thoughts and told Juliette that she had to quit crying about her own problems and man (or should I say woman) up. Hallelujah! It was about time! And because of his words, Juliette actually started to turn into a character that I enjoyed to read about. She still struggled to let go of the whininess that had plagued her for years, but she was without a doubt more promising.

If it was so great, then why did you only give it 3.5 stars?

Glad you asked, wonderful reader. There is really only one answer that I can give to that - I didn’t like the love triangle.
In order to avoid spoilers, I will simply say this - it felt like the author was forcing me to take sides with one of the guys by making the other undesirable. I love love triangles, but I only like them if it is hard to pick between the two of them. What’s the fun in a love triangle when one of the boys is hot, and the other is not?

Overall Rating of Unravel Me

Song: Warrior by Beth Crowley (I know that it's a TMI song, but it works for this book so well)


  1. YES. Because if you liked it, that means I'll LOVE it.

  2. You know what's funny? I actually loved Shatter Me. It was so different from anything that I ever read, and I loved Tahereh Mafi's writing style. So when I got to Unravel Me, I honestly thought I was going to enjoy it as well, but unfortunately I didn't. I DNF'd the book around 50 or so pages, (maybe more than that) because Juliette and Adam's relationship became a bit ridiculous after a while. Constantly kissing when danger was arising, it was like OKAY GUYS CHILLLLLL! lol. Idk, I want to pick it back up because I honestly loved me some Warner, and I heard there's some type of love-triangle between the three, so hopefully I can find the motivation to do so. I like love-triangles btw, atleast well written ones lol.
