Unravel Me is the sequel to Shatter Me, a story about tortured teen Juliette, as she escapes the corrupt Reestablishment in search of a revolution against the man who terrorized her. Juliette contains a gift, or more like a curse, that allows her touch to be lethal. As Juliette joins the rebellion, she must face coming to terms with her love Adam, and new love Warner, which pushes Juliette to put her trust to the test.
WOAH WOAH WOAH WOAH I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS AT ALL. I had some troubles with Shatter Me, I found it to be kind of a let down. Ironically, a girl at my school who has read the entire series told me to keep going, as it would get better. AND LET ME JUST SAY THAT SHE WAS RIGHT! This book was suspenseful, cunning, romantic, and one big thrill-ride! I'm glad I put my trust in the sequel.
I don't know why, but this book was just so much more interesting! We get to see Juliette in a form like never before, where she is more stable and aware of her actions. I loved how Mafi this time didn't include too many repetitive words; (that drove me insane) and instead gave a more developed character. I loved the introduction of new characters; (Kenji being my favourite) and I even grew a soft spot for Warner; (and began to hate Adam's guts). Overall the character development in this book was INSANE.
I loved how this book did a love triangle, but in a good way. The romance was descriptive but not cheesy, and I actually enjoyed reading about the romantic conflicts. I found this love triangle to be done a lot better than in the first book, and I feel as if the characters had a lot more chemistry with each other. WILL SHE PICK ADAM? WILL SHE PICK WARNER? I DON'T KNOW!!
Basically, I would say that even if you didn't like the first book, you should still give it a try. I found it a lot more organized and put-together than the first, and I also really liked the romance, which is weird for me because love triangles aren't normally my forte. It almost seems like this book put me under a spell.
So give it a go!!! I'm so happy that I went along with reading this book because it proved to me for the first time that sometimes you can't just give up on a series.
Have you read Unravel Me? What did you think?
