Book Review of “Unravel Me” by Tahereh Mafi

I loved Unravel me, almost as much as Shatter me. For the first half of the book, I disliked Juliette a lot. She was selfish, rude, and lacked respect for those in the Omega group. All her thoughts were about her and Adam. It was very frustrating. But once she snapped out of it, and realized that she could make friends, that she could help, and that she could be a better person, I started to love her again.

I really enjoy the interaction between her and Kenji, I like how someone was finally able to help Juliette tap into her powers. I like that he is 100% honest with her and does not put up with her whiny crap. I also like the bond developing between Kenji and James, because it looks like Adam doesn’t really seem to pay any attention to his brother, he is to wrapped up in his drama with Juliette.

In comes Warner, and boy might I say Juliette better end up with him. At this point she is so hung up on Adam, I believe it’s because Adam is the only boy she has ever felt close to. But the connection with Warner is amazing. The love that pours from him, the words that flow out of his mouth. That kind of takes my breath away. And besides, I love the bad boys. I am so sick of the good guys always getting the girls.

The plot twists in this book were great. Warner’s father is insane and I hate him with a true passion. Sweet baby Jesus, I hope that Warner gets to kill him. I cannot wait, to start and finish Ignite me. I really am going crazy already trying to figure out who Juliette will end up with.

 

“I want to be the friend you fall hopelessly in love with. The one you take into your arms and into your bed and into the private world you keep trapped in your head. I want to be that kind of friend. The one who will memorize the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them. I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body.

I want to know where to touch you, I want to know how to touch you. I want to know convince you to design a smile just for me. Yes, I do want to be your friend. I want to be your best friend in the entire world.”- Warner (Tahereh Mafi)
