Fracture Me by Tahereh Mafi | Book Review

(Shatter Me #2.5)

Published: December 17th 2013

Synopsis:

In this electrifying sixty-page companion novella to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, discover the fate of the Omega Point rebels as they go up against The Reestablishment. Set during and soon after the final moments of Unravel Me, Fracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective.

As Omega Point prepares to launch an all-out assault on The Reestablishment soldiers stationed in Sector 45, Adam’s focus couldn’t be further from the upcoming battle. He’s reeling from his breakup with Juliette, scared for his best friend’s life, and as concerned as ever for his brother James’s safety. And just as Adam begins to wonder if this life is really for him, the alarms sound. It’s time for war.

On the battlefield, it seems like the odds are in their favor—but taking down Warner, Adam’s newly discovered half brother, won’t be that easy. The Reestablishment can’t tolerate a rebellion, and they’ll do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam has ever cared about.

Fracture Me sets the stage for Ignite Me, the explosive finale in Tahereh Mafi’s epic dystopian series. It’s a novella not to be missed by fans who crave action-packed stories with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.

Hey there! This review’s on Fracture Me, if you haven’t realized. 😛 I didn’t enjoy this as much as the other books (Why? *cough* Adam *cough*) but it was still a good read. (Previously reviewed of the series: Shatter Me, Destroy Me & Unravel Me)

So Fracture Me is in the POV of Adam, Juliette’s first love interest, and is set in one of the scenes of Unravel Me, near the end of the story, the reason for which I’m not going to be writing a quick summary this time.Read More »

Oh my god. Tahereh Mafi’s amazing-ness was shown through Shatter Me & Destroy Me, but I had no idea how much farther her awesomeness extended. This book was simply amazing!

I’m going to be skipping the quick summary this time, just to make this a spoiler-free review for everyone. 🙂 You’re welcome.Read More »

Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi | Book Review

(Shatter Me #1.5)

Published: October 2nd 2012

Synopsis:

Perfect for the fans of Shatter Me who are desperately awaiting the release of Unravel Me, this novella-length digital original will bridge the gap between these two novels from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Set after Shatter Me and before its forthcoming sequel, Unravel Me,Destroy Me is a novella told from the perspective of Warner, the ruthless leader of Sector 45.

Hello! I finished this quite a while ago, but I still remember my love for this book like it was yesterday! I love Shatter Me, the first book in the Shatter Me series, and this novella was no exception!

This is going to be a more shorter review, as it is only a novella, but read on for my fangirling over this book! Note: This is a spoiler-free review, unless you haven’t read the first book. If you haven’t read the first book, DO NOT READ THIS REVIEW. You have been warned. Read More »

That’s What HE Said Thursday #8 (May 28)

Aloha! Time for another That’s What He Said Thursday, a meme hosted by Chapter Break! I’m still reeling from Ignite Me’s amazingness (by Tahereh Mafi) and so here’s a quote brought to you by none other than Warner, one of the love interests in the story. (Whose review is coming soon!)

And I’ve fallen.

So hard.

I’ve hit the ground. Gone right through it. Never in my life have I felt this. Nothing like this. I’ve felt shame and cowardice, weakness and strength. I’ve known terror and indifference, self-hate and general disgust. I’ve seen things that cannot be unseen.

And yet I’ve known nothing like this terrible, horrible, paralyzing feeling. I feel crippled. Desperate and out of control. And it keeps getting worse. Every day I feel sick. Empty and somehow aching.

Love is a heartless bastard.

-Warner, Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Destroy Me_bookcoverThe feels, the feels! Oh my god I just about died from the feels reading this book! Isn’t this just so heartbreaking?

Come on Warner, you can do this. If Tay-Tay can, so can you. ❤

What do you think of this quote/tidbit? Have you read the Shatter Me series or this book? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments below! Planning on reading the series? Also let me know! I’d love to hear from you. 🙂

Happy Thursday!

WWW Wednesday #5 (May 06)

Another WWW Wednesday! This meme was formerly hosted @ Should be Reading, but is now hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. Let’s get started!

What are you currently reading?

I am currently reading Hereafter by Tara Hudson, which I started 2 days ago, (Hereafter teaser HERE) as well as The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter, which I started today.

What did you recently finish reading?

Most recently (yesterday, in fact) I finished reading A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray & Tales from the 23rd Precinct by Kevin Eleven. Other books I’ve recently finished would include The Giver by Lois Lowry, Sense & Sensibility by Jane Austen, & Shatter Me and Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Continuing with books on my Popsugar Challenge reading list, I have decided I will read Skinned by Robin Wasserman, as well as Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern. After that I will possibly read Ghost Story by Peter Straub. Sometime between these novels I will also probably read my ARC of Frankly TWISTED by Kevin Eleven, the forthcoming novel to Tales from the 23rd Precinct.

So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! What are you currently reading? Recently finished? Will read next? Let me know in the comments below or link your post! 🙂

Happy Wednesday!
