    Kinda disappointed. (view spoiler)[I love Tahereh Mafi, but it is clear that world-building and action-writing are not her strong suits. The action scenes felt rushed. Anderson died too fast and too easily. We didn't get to witness a large-scale epic war. The ending provided no real closure to the story. What happens to Juliette after she killed Anderson? How will a 17-year-old girl with barely a middle school education lead a global movement, let alone governing any country? (hide spoiler)] I wanted more.However, Warner, Kenji, and Juliette's emotional maturity almost made up for the things that lacked.About Warner: Dear Kenji:Hey, Juliette:And Adam: Edit after cover reveal:WOWOWOWOWOWOW I can't believe our "Ignite Me" guess was right! Good job Shatter Me fandom.Original:Here's an interesting observation: I've noticed that the titles Shatter Me, Destroy Me, and Unravel Me are all referring to the manners of what Juliette does to Warner. In Destroy me Warner said: "That this girl would know exactly how to shatter me." Then he went on and said in Unravel Me: "You destroy me." In addition to that, Juliette, also in Unravel Me, related to the term when thinking about Warner: "I want to unravel him." So....is it delusional to hope for the seemingly impossible?["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    SpoilersI knew it. Ugh, what a ridiculous book. I think these YA romances are getting more and more unhealthy, creepy, unrealistic, and silly. The romance in this wasn't just cringey and fucked up, it was also cheesy, predictable, cliched, and nonsensical. The plot and the main characters weren't much better. Why did Juliette even have to end up with anyone? Why couldn't she have told both Adam and Warner to piss off and just enjoyed being a teenager with other interests who dated around before settling down. She didn't need to choose her life partner at age bloody seventeen.Random, Repetitive, Ranty Thoughts:-Juliette thinks Adam, Kenji and the rest of Omega Point were killed in the war against the Reesablishment/Anderson/evul government regime. Now she wants revenge not to mention sexy times with psycho Warner.-There was hardly no action or plot, the majority of the book was spent on Juliette's whining, Warner being all emo, Juliette and Warner moaning about their pwecious feelings for each other, and Adam being a dick. The rest of Ignite Me consisted of Juliette and co coming up with a poorly thought out plan to kill evul leader Anderson and take over the Reestablishment with their x-men like powers. It was all so underwhelming and poorly executed.-I'm not even Team Adam or Team Warner but the way Mafi twisted things and made 180 character changes so that Warner was the perfect love interest and Adam was the abusive, jealous, bitter psycho ex was beyond infuriating. I HATED Mafi's attempt at manipulating readers to hate one love interest and root for the other, it was insulting and plain lazy writing. -I rolled my eyes at Warner's 'redemption' and at the attempt at making him seem more like a good guy than a bad guy. The whole thing was pathetic, some examples:1. Juliette hated that Warner made her torture and possibly kill a toddler… It turned out the whole thing was just a simulation and nothing of the sort happened. And while Warner was enlightening Juliette of this he acted as if she was somehow magically meant to realise that the whole thing had been in her mind.2. Juliette hated that he forced her to spend time with him and made her wear stupid dresses for him… Apparently, he only did that because he liked spending time with her and wanted her to feel happy.3. Juliette hated that Warner kept her away from his soldiers and made her feel all alone… Duh, every single one of his soldiers were sex starved would be rapists. Silly Juliette, not realising that.4. Juliette was disgusted by Warner killing one of his soldiers just because he stole some food… Aw, the poor baby only killed that soldier because he was an abusive wife beating douche. 5. Juliette wasn't happy that Warner read her journal and was generally a creepy monster… Well, Warner admitted that he was a selfish douche so naturally him admitting that made all his previous douchey, pervyness a-okay.6. Juliette hated that he wanted to use her as a weapon… Well, it turned out he didn't, he was just pretending so he could study her and possibly find a way to save his mummy who had similar powers to Juliette.-And on top of that Warner had a mean daddy and a sick mummy. So yea, he wasn't an evul, crazy, obsessed fucker at all he was a tortured hero who was doing his best to survive. Ugh.-It was funny how hurt Warner was when Juliette thought he was an irredeemable wanker. What did he expect? Why would he think that Juliette would give him the benefit of the doubt after all he'd done? He hadn't done anything to earn her trust, loyalty, and friendship. And no, him helping her now and again meant nothing. He only did those things because he fancied her/was obsessed with her, not because he was a good person.The whole thing was positively stupid, if Warner spent all his time acting like a freaky fuck then of course everyone would think he was a freaky fuck. How did Warner not get that?!-Warner wasn't a psycho at all, he was just a poor, misunderstood, lonely boy who wanted to be loved. Yea, it was totally cool that he had Juliette imprisoned in his compound, mentally tortured her, watched her go nuts, and tried to force her to kill people. After all, it was all for her own good. Fucker.-It was ridiculous that Warner got all pissed that Juliette thought badly of him. What did he expect when he acted like a controlling monster, made her believe she killed a toddler, and shot one of his soldiers in front of her?! Why did he get so outraged and righteous about Juliette's opinion of him?! How the hell was she to know that the toddler she thought she killed was just a simulation and that the man he killed was an abusive prick? How could she possibly know those things weren't as they seemed? After everything she witnessed and went through it was only natural that she'd think the worst of him. If he wanted her to think otherwise maybe he should have told her exactly what was what. He had no right to act all hurt and pissed at Juliette's opinion of him.-I hated Adam's portrayal, I was never a fan of him to begin with but he was always depicted as a decent guy. In this though he turned into a grade A son-of-a-bitch-idiot-fucking-wanker-bitch. He was verbally, physically, and emotionally abusive towards Juliette all because she deigned to choose someone else over him. And he never once apologised for his disgusting behaviour, for some reason he thought he owned Juliette and thought he had a right to abuse her. He was awful. The thing that annoyed me most was that the Adam in the first two books and the novellas was a good guy — he was calm, reasonable, considerate, and caring but in this he was a completely different person. The 180 change in his character was beyond ridiculous, I didn't buy it, there was no hint of Adam being a cruel, bitter, fucker in the rest of series so him suddenly being like that in this was nothing but manipulative shit just so he could look like the more rubbish love interest.Why couldn't Adam stay as he was instead of being so threatening and abusive?? Why did his character have to be assassinated just so Warner could look good and he could look like a scumbag in comparison?! Why did the author have to resort to such contrived, lazy, pathetic, poorly written bullshit?! Why couldn't she trust readers to make up their own mind about Adam and Warner instead of spoon feeding us rubbish and trying to force us to feel a certain way?! Ugh, I'm so pissed.-I rolled my eyes at Juliette banging on about how Warner understood her and how Adam never did. The only reason Warner supposedly knew Juliette better than Adam was because he used to perv on her in her cell, he could sense her emotions with his powers, and because he read her journal full of crazy thoughts. There was no real organic connection or understanding between Warner/Juliette.-Why the hell did Juliette let Warner take her journal a second time?! It was private, but Warner took it anyway because he wanted to finish reading it and Juliette did nothing about it. WTF?! Why didn't she protest more? If someone stole and read a diary full of my thoughts I would flip the fuck out. Yea, I didn't buy Juliette being all passive and cool about Warner reading her inner most thoughts. If Warner really loved and respected Juliette then he wouldn't have read her diary and personal ramblings. It was like he was studying her so he could groom her into falling for him. It was sick.-This whole book was manipulative in how it twisted things to make Warner seem like a good guy and the perfect match for Juliette whilst making Adam come across as a douche who never understood Juliette. I didn't appreciate Warner/Juliette's supposed suitability being shoved in my face, if they were really right for each other then the author wouldn't have needed to bang on about how perfect they were together instead of letting us readers see for ourselves.-The secondary characters were pretty good. Castle, James, Alia, Lila, and Kenji were all decent characters, I wanted to know more about them instead of reading about insufferable Juliette, Warner, and Adam. -I didn't like how Juliette was constantly surrounded by guys, she had hardly had no female interactions. And the female secondary characters that were around her had very minor roles. They only spoke rarely and when they did it was just a few sentences here and there. Yea, not impressed. -WTF was with Warner constantly calling Juliette love and dear, it made him sound like a cross between an old grandma and a pretentious git.-Was it really necessary for Juliette to call Warner Aaron? It was cringey and dumb.-Are you kidding me with Juliette ending up being the leader of everything?! She was a clueless, crazy, idiot who was more concerned about her love life than anything else no matter what she claimed. There's no way she could be a great leader, anyone would have been better than her.-All in all, I LOATHE LOATHE LOATHED this. If the author had written Warner/Juliette as the HEA without resorting to sabotaging Adam's character I might have actually enjoyed it. Sadly, he was just a tool purely used for making Warner look amazing and yea, I'm not impressed with cop outs and lazy writing. I doubt I'll read any of Mafi's future books.Review before reading:Ugh, it's so obvious that Juliette will choose psycho Warner because he ignites her or some bullshit. I want Juliette to fuck both Adam and Warner, then dump them, and then shag her way through America. That would be awesomely beautiful.

    After reading this book, I have one thousand and one thoughts running inside, trying to escape out of my head. And I think it took a while before I processed everything that I have just absorbed. And they were plenty. So many. As a forewarn though Ignite Me was different from what I expected it to be but in some ways all the same. I’m still reeling everything in to be quite honest. But here I go; I’m going to spill my guts right about now:The Shatter Me series is for me not really a dystopia novel per se. It’s not about the world they were living in but it’s about this girl, namely Juliette, and her personal journey. And that’s why I wasn’t completely surprised when it ended when things normally should be just starting. In a way it feels like it was halted in the middle of the story but I liked how the author ended where things were about to begin. I think it was clever way to end a story making readers think while leaving glimmer of hope for the characters we all fell in love. Although I think that that build-up was stretched-out and it fast-forwarded the last events. In fact, despite the all too many disclosures there were still questions that were left unanswered. Yes, I would have wanted more but then I realized that it’s not about Anderson and the war. The story always led me back to Juliette. It’s not about the result but it was how she got there.I really loved reading Juliette’s journey; from this timid little girl who only had pen and paper as an emotional outlet to being this brave girl leading a rebellion. And while I do like how strong and confident she was now, I can’t help but still doubt on how fast she transformed to this new persona of hers. I also do think that she isn’t capable of leading. At least not yet as she’s still didn’t feel whole to me. She isn’t ready, that responsibility is too big for her, even for the new Juliette.Here’s a revelation that shocked me: I cannot hate Adam. I just can’t. From all of the people in there the only person who I find the most transparent and vulnerable was Adam. No, I don’t condemn his actions towards Juliette. But really, can you blame him? He was just speaking his mind. He had his emotions on his sleeves; his reaction to Juliette’s changes was acceptable as it was real. I can’t fault him; the guy had a bruised ego and a broken heart. And those made me see him more. In fact, I actually came to like him now as opposed to the two novels. He was so raw in here, so exposed, that I get to glimpse the real Adam amidst this big brouhaha between him, Juliette and Warner.Is that my cue to tackle my most favorite part of this book? I think I have said everything I need to say in this manifesto. I might tweak it up a bit later on but basically I sort of hit right on the mark. So I don’t think I need to add more. But in the first two books we’ve seen him too closed, expression clipped and emotions contained. But reading about Warner’s vulnerability and struggles were still shocking. So it was delightful to see him, well, happy. I must say the intimate scenes between Warner and Juliette shared were scorching hot. I think I came to a sensory overload. But basically my ship is sailing pretty far to dreamland. I completely and totally satisfied. (You should see my huge grin after those hot scenes. I will never look at a boardroom table the same way ever again. And these honeysuckle soaps, where can I buy them?)Ah, Kenji. This man is just so awesome beyond words. I couldn’t even count how many times he cracked me up but surprise, surprise when he admitted that he too was broken as everyone else. It also tires him to be this jokester, masking the pain behind his jokes. But I really, really loved his platonic relationship with Juliette. They interact so animatedly, whether they sharing moments on the rooftop or teasing Juliette’s when she kept on ogling Warner while he bench-pressed. It’s not even Warner or Adam who had been there on her mission—it was Kenji. Oh Kenji, you also had me.I’m bit sad that one of my favorite series had come to an end. It’s always bittersweet to me. Only a few books that got me this overly excited, and definitely this is one of them. I’m still too hang up and I probably will take a while before I completely get these emotions out of my system. I don’t think I will ever be.***Plug: My little project called Project Sixty-TwoPre-Reading Comment #3: (10/17/2013)“That this girl would know exactly how to shatter me” – Warner (Destroy Me)“You destroy me.” – Warner (Unravel Me)“I want to believe in the boy with a tortured childhood and an abusive father. I want to understand him. I want to unravel him.” – Juliette (Unravel Me)And there’s Warner’s tattoo: IGNITE NOW GO FORTH AND FANGIRL!Pre-Reading Comment #3: (08/08/2013)Oh sweet baby pandas & all the cute kinds!!! We have a title & cover people: IGNITE ME!!! IGNITE ME!!! So many feels. I'm drowning in joy!!! The title has Warner's name written all over and under!!! Pre-Reading Comment #2: (06/28/2013)I just saw the teaser summary of Untitled Me (well, still no title…)Juliette now knows she may be the only one who can stop the Reestablishment. But to take them down, she’ll need the help of the one person she never thought she could trust: Warner. And as they work together, Juliette will discover that everything she thought she knew—about Warner, her abilities, and even Adam—was wrong.This indicates that: 1. More Warner scenes.2. More time together: more Warner + Juliette interactions.3. More Warner. I’m solid Team Warner. And I approved this plot!PS.

    O.M.G.I can't even.I've lost the ability to can.This book didn't go anywhere that I thought it would, but wow, did I like it! I haven't felt this emotionally attached to characters or a story since I read Clockwork Princess. I devoured this book in a day, and now I don't know what to feel because the series is over.I don't want to say too much, for fear of spoiling something. But if you want to know what I'm feeling, proceed with caution: (view spoiler)[OMG WARNERRRRRRRRRRRRYW#[email protected];[email protected]%#*(Q#AHis character arc through this series was incredible, almost as incredible as Juliette's. I can't believe they ended up together. Like. Wow. I don't think I've read a YA book that surprised me this much in terms of the love triangle. PROPS TO YOU, TAHEREH MAFI! And Kenji. My beloved Kenji.He might be even funnier in this one than he has been in the previous two. If that's possible.Basically, I was a bottle of emotions reading this book. And I exploded during the not one but multiple steamy scenes that I'm still kind of shocked she was allowed to include in a YA book. Like, Warner + Juliette have way more chemistry than Adam + Juliette. That's all I'm saying.*le sigh* (hide spoiler)]Basically, all the mad love to Tahereh Mafi.This is an epic conclusion.All I have left for this review is:["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    *spoilers*Love triangles make me cry tears as salty as the ocean. They wash up on the shores of my cheeks and flow around the inverted palm tree of my nose, over the conch shell of my lips and off the cliff of my chin. I can hear them screaming like a thousand tiny fairies as they hurl themselves into the abyss. Drip.Drip.Drop.SCREECH.In the beginning of this book the relationship drama was overpowering. It was like that guy that stands idly in the back of the band, banging a metallic stick against a metallic triangle, hoping that the dull chiming is heard by the audience. Except someone has put a microphone to it. And taken away the rest of the band. And turned the volume up to eleven. The chiming is all you hear. It drills into your skull slowly, like a worm moving through rich soil. It burrows into your brain like a bear readying itself for hibernation and makes a nest there among your synapses like a bird ready to lay.ChimeThe men are yelling at each other, wearing their emotions like armor, swinging their rage like swords.ChimeThe MC is confused. She gasps in horror as her gladiators’ battle each other in an arena made out of her heart, with an audience made of her feels.ChimeA winner emerges. He’s the one you never guessed but always hoped for. The one you thought a monster. But wait, what is this? The horrible things, the inexcusable things he did…were all misconceptions. The explanations for his actions sit inside a paper box. When you lift the lid, what falls out? The interesting character you thought you knew is gone, his face dashed away by the pounding of waves upon a rocky coast. Seeing what emerges is like living in a house full of furniture that isn’t actually there. You think you’ll bump into an edge, trip over a rug, but in the end, there’s nothing. It’s just perfect, empty space.And the one you thought kind? The one you thought you knew? His gentle nature is conveniently stripped away layer by layer. The deeper you delve, the uglier it gets, until all you’re left with is regret. Regret that you thought this would be interesting, that you thought the MC might CHOOSE to love the bad guy even though he was bad.Perfect excuses fly off of these pages like a thousand migrating monarch butterflies. They flutter past your outraged face and linger teasingly in your peripheral vision like snow falling in a forest.Drip.Drip.Drop.SCREECH.This review can also be found at The Alliterates.

    VIEW MY REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQj1x...March 2018What can I say. This is my favorite book of all time. Nothing brings me more strength than chapter thirty-nine. Nothing brings me more peace than chapter fifty-eight. I will never get over how every single chapter feels like a roller coaster. I will never not have to put this book down to catch my breath, to cry, to bring myself back to the real world. I've written enough essays about how much this series means to me so i'll stop being emo, but Juliette's growth and her resilience in this book is awe-inspiring. And so incredibly relevant and inspiring to my own mental health. When I annotated this book last September, I attacked the pages with blue highlighter to mark my favorite quotes from Juliette about staying strong, and there's one that makes me cry every time I read the book:I've been here before, I tell myself. I've been lonelier than this, more hopeless than this, more desperate than this. I've been here before and I survived. I can get through this.Last semester when I had a relapse of my anxiety that was so debilitating I nearly dropped out of school, I would tell this quote to myself. Rereading it after recovering from that point in my life just slammed into me because I'm so grateful for it. I'm going to cry again right now as I'm typing this just remembering how much this book touches the deepest corners of my heart and speaks so true to my own fears and the way my anxiety influences my life. I know Juliette's not real, but if she were, I would want to hug her and never let go. I want to hug this book and never let go. I truly want to sob every time I remember this isn't the last book in the series anymore. There's 2 days left until Restore Me comes out and I'm so terrified but so, so thrilled. This series has healed me enough to last for a lifetime; I can't wait to see where we go from here.September 2017YES I already read this book once this year buT THEN RESTORE ME WAS ANNOUNCED AND DYLAN SENT ME A COPY TO ANNOTATE SO LET ME LIVE!!!! So 50% of me reading this book was me being like "omg restore me prediction omg easter egg i didn't notice before omg new theory omg restore me foreshadowing," and the other 50% was me roasting warner and how much i still hate the ending of this book. a lot of people accuse me for putting shatter me on a pedestal but i wish i could mail this copy to anyone who says so because half of my annotations in the first half of this book are like "warner can fuck off instead of trying to get her to be in love with him" and "i hate when he does stuff like this." the boy is problematic, but what can i say. I think this reread really just solidified how much I fucking love this book for Juliette's character growth. I had an entire highlighter color to highlight the quotes and scenes in which Juliette was particularly badass, and there were entire sections that I think are really undiscussed in the fandom that Juliette really shines through on her own. She has an entire conversation with Kenji about, "It's not about Adam or Warner, it's about me and finding my own strength," and I think it's one of the most important parts of the series and an absolute turning point. It makes me want to cry every time I reread the scene that she talks about, "I was locked up in an asylum for 264 days because I made myself a prisoner to my own thoughts and suffering, but I never even contemplated that my own strength could have broken me out of there with my bare hands." It's so sad, but so revolutionary for Juliette's character development. The way that she unendingly fights for her friends and her world, as well as how she is ALWAYS nice and considerate to people no matter the circumstance, is always really inspiring to me. She's such a good person even when she doesn't need to be, and her empathy and compassion is really something I envy. I really won't be able to stand her suffering in Restore Me because she is such a precious child of mine that I want to protect.And since this is the fifth time I've reread this and I think you understand the depths of my feelings for it already, I'll go. But EEEEEEEEPPP RESTORE MEApril 2017This is the first time that I've read this and finished it, clutching it to my chest, thinking, "this book is flawless. there are zero issues. every action has a meticulously cultivated intention behind it. every single one of these characters deserves love and happiness. (except for adam, he can choke.)when i reread unravel me i was scared that i was losing my passion for this series because it really didn't make me as emotional as it used to but i legit cried during this reread at least 10 times so i guess i just wasn't feelin unravel me at that moment because i was feelin this every goddamn second. (i also hate rereading these because it makes me realize that half the fanfictions i have written are super out of character and i have so much wrong info that i forgot about. but oh well.)March 20152nd reread (idk why i didn't re-review this after i reread it the first time) what can i even say. it gets better every time i reread it, every time i notice new small details. (did you know delalieu has a mustache??????) i can still point out its flaws and i still am really frustrated with the ending but at this point, i know this book so well that i can see it like it's a freakin movie. it's insane. i love juliette so so so so so so so so so so so so so much, holy shiitake mushrooms. okay. i don't know how to pull myself out of this slump coming on. jeez.January 2014I'm filming a review but it will not be up until a couple days after the release datebut guys, prepare yourselves.anything feelings you had about anything are probably gonna do a 180.August 2013I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW ITI THOUGHT IT WOULD BE IGNITE ME AND THE EYELASHES WOULD BE FLAMESBUT THIS IS SO MUCH BETTEReven though i hate the color orange BUT THAT'S OKAY OH MY GODS THIS IS MORE THAN FANTASTIC BUTwarner. why would she. warner. shes just making it seem like. warner. i don't like this. i do like it but i dont like itja feel?June 2013WE HAVE A DESCRIPTION ADFHJASKHFLASJDHFLSDIAHFKIDUSHAFLIDAHokay but you can totally tell that she and warner are gonna be together a lot, so it becomes clear that all the questions she's answered about there being a lot of intimate scenes proves it'll all be with warner unless adam becomes a third wheel which might suck even more.BUT I NEEEEED THIS BOOK :( April 2013I haven't read Unravel Me yet but i'm already excited about this one. Don't judge me.

    ”Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures.No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.”Do you still remember my review of “Unravel me”? Yes?! Okay! Then let me tell you something:“Ignite me” was so much better than the last book!!!!I don’t know how Tahereh Mafi did it but she killed me!!!! I died about a thousand deaths while I read this book and I have absolutely no clue how I even survived to read this!!! Gosh, that book left me reeling and laughing and gasping and crying and swooning and drooling and I had absolutely no idea what to do with all those feels!!!I bit my nails, I was desperate, I was hopeful, I wanted to smash the book against a wall - which would have been pretty bad because I read it on my e-reader and I’m quite certain it wouldn’t have survived this special kind of treatment *lol* - I wanted to shake some of the characters, wanted to yell at them, I wanted to laugh with them, I wanted to punch some sense into their heads. (Yeah, Adam it’s you I’m talking about!!!) And most of all I really, really wanted them to be happy and fine!!!So yeah, I think you get the idea! ;-)It was an emotional rollercoaster and I actually loved every second of it! *lol* That said I guess I can finally jump to the actual review! I hope you manage to read until the end. If not: You’ve been brave and I don’t blame you! ;-PThe plot:"My eyes are filling fast with tears and I blink and blink but the world is a mess and I want to laugh because all I can think is how horrible and beautiful it is, that our eyes blur the truth when we can’t bear to see it."The book basically starts where “Unravel me” left off. Juliette has been saved by Warner and was brought back to base while she was unconscious. In the first chapter we learn that Omega Point has been destroyed completely and that Warner had no other choice than to smuggle Juliette into his private quarters. Of course our heroine is not happy about the bad new and wants to find out what truly happened and if anyone is still alive. So yeah our golden boy and our lethal girl decide to take a trip to the place where Omega Point used to be and it’s actually there, where the plot thickens and everything gains momentum! ;-) Since I don’t want to spoil you I decided to leave it at that, I’m pretty certain that most of you have already read the entire trilogy though. So for everyone who’s already read the books and for everyone who doesn’t want to be spoiled: The character’s section is going to be full, I repeat, full of spoilers!!! So beware my fellow readers! Ye be warned!!! ;-P *lol*The characters:Juliette: I loved how self-confident and strong Juliette has become. She’s finally capable of forming her own opinions and she doesn’t take – forgive me my crude choice of words – shit anymore! *lol* The old Juliette would have cowered and accepted the way Adam treated her, the new Juliette kicked ass!!! Quite literally as well! XD I was so proud of her! She finally had the courage to stand up for herself and her beliefs and she didn’t only make her own decisions but also made sure to follow through with them! It was amazing to watch her transformation and I was so glad she finally found herself!!! There was only one thing I didn’t like about her and that was how she let Warner suffer! How dare you Juliette! How dare you to break his wonderful and gentle heart!!!! I mean jeez I know you had to think things through, but seriously!!!! It’s WARNER we’re talking about!!!! That awesome hot guy who’s crazy and madly in love with you!!!! XD Open your freakin eyes!!! *lol* Okay, okay enough of the rant, everything is fine! ;-)”Or,” I say to him, “I leave, find your father, kill him, and deal with the consequences on my own.”Warner fights a smile and fails.He glances down and laughs just a little before looking me right in the eye. He shakes his head.“What’s so funny?”“My dear girl.”“What?”“I have been waiting for this moment for a long time now.”"I can’t be that girl anymore.For so many years I lived in constant terror of myself. Doubt had married my fear and moved into my mind, where it built castles and ruled kingdoms and reigned over me, bowing my will to its whispers until I was little more than an acquiescing peon, too terrified to disobey, too terrified to disagree.I had been shackled, a prisoner in my own mind.””I remember it so well.” I hesitate. “Dying. It was the most painful thing I’ve ever experienced. I couldn’t scream because my lungs were torn apart or full of blood. I don’t know. I just had to lie there, trying to breathe, hoping to drop dead as quickly as possible. And the whole time,” I say, “the whole time I kept thinking about how I’d spent my entire life being a coward, and how it got me nowhere. And I knew that if I had the chance to do it all again, I’d do it differently. I promised myself I’d finally stop being afraid.””This isn’t about Adam or Warner,” I tell him. “This is about me and what I want. This is about me finally understanding where I want to be in ten years. Because I’m going to be alive, Kenji. I will be alive in ten years, and I’m going to be happy. I’m going to be strong. And I don’t need anyone to tell me that anymore. I am enough, and I always will be.”Adam: Well, I think I’ve to take that back. Nothing is fine when it comes to Adam. Adam… that name… I just have to think about him and I become aggressive. Oh man, I seriously have issues with that boy!!! I already wanted to slap some sense into him while I read “Unravel me”, reading about his character in “Ignite me” I was actually tempted to punch him in the face! Gosh!! That stupid, stupid, stubborn, selfish, obnoxious and incorrigible jerk!!! And that’s actually me putting it more than just mildly! I hate him, I loathe him, I want to scratch him with my fingernails! How dare he to be so egoistic and mean!? When I read chapter 27 I was so angry I wanted to slap him in his stupid pretty face!!! Saying that he was happier when he thought Juliette was dead?!!?? I mean seriously!!??? WHAT THE FREAKIN HELL!??!!! Don’t you have any decency?! And then he even has the nerve to throw her out and to keep his relation to Warner a secret? *grrrrrr* I could go on and on about how much I despise him now, but I think I’ll just leave it at that. ADAM is dead to me and the fact he decided to get to know Warner in the end still doesn’t change anything about my opinion! What a stupid fool!!!”It’s not charity,” I snap. “He cares about me – and I care about him!”Warner nods, unimpressed. “You should get a dog, love. I hear they share much the same qualities.”What do you know about being alive?” he demands. “You wouldn’t say a word when I first found you. You were afraid of your own shadow. You were so consumed by your grief and guilt that you’d gone almost completely insane – living so far inside your own head that you had no idea what happened to the world while you were gone.”You don’t even know what you’re saying,” Kenji tells him. “You’re acting crazy – ““I was happier,” Adam says, “when I thought she was dead.”“You don’t mean that. Don’t say things like that, man. Once you say that kind of shit you can’t take it back –““Oh, I mean it,” Adam says. “I really, really mean it.” He finally looks at me. Fists clenched. “Thinking you were dead,” he says to me, “was so much better. It hurt so much less than this.”“And right now, I can’t say I know what Adam would do if I were dying in front of him. I’m not sure if he would save my life. And that uncertainty alone makes me certain that something wasn’t right between us. Something wasn’t real.Maybe we both fell in love with the illusion of something more.”Warner: He’s standing at the front door, hands shoved casually in his pockets, no fewer than six different guns pointed at his face.”Oh Warner… *sighs dreamily* With every book I read I loved that boy more and more! He still is awesomeness on two legs and if possible he got even more awesome throughout the book. Gosh, how much I love him!!! I’m Warner trash, I want to have his babies, he’s the perfect man and he’s easily become my no.1 book boyfriend. (Well, truth be told Will and he seem to share that place now. *LOL*) We finally saw more of his vulnerable side and I loved E.V.E.R.Y single S.E.C.O.N.D of it!!! I loved how he came to Juliette rescue when Adam and her had that argument back at Adam’s house and I was so heartbroken when he tried to hide his scars in chapter 32. And good god, I swear when I read chapter 50 it broke my heart into tiny little pieces. I was crying so hard I was even forced to take a break. That chapter literally killed me! I was so overwhelmed by my emotions I could barely breathe. My heart ached so much… that poor lost boy, to read that chapter was pure torture and just to remember it is actually enough to cause me to weep again. *sniff* Warner suffered and hurt so much throughout the entire book and all I wanted to do was to cradle him and to take his pain away. No one deserves to be so miserable and alone and I really hated Adam for hiding his and James’s true identity. If I’m entirely honest I also kind of hated Juliette for being so indecisive and when they finally hit it off I was so happy I grinned the entire time. =))))))I’ve said it before, love, and I’m sorry I have to say it again, but you do not understand the choices I have to make. You don’t know what I’ve seen and what I’m forced to witness every single day.” He hesitates. “And I wouldn’t want you to. But do not presume to understand my actions,” he says, finally meeting my eyes. “Because if you do, I can assure you you’ll only be met with disappointment. And if you insist on continuing to make assumptions about my character, I’ll advise you only this: assume you will always be wrong.” “He wasn’t trying to patronize me.He was enjoying himself.Aaron Warner Anderson, chief commander and regent of Sector 45, son of the supreme commander of The Reestablishment.He has a soft spot for fashion.””I have no one to impress,” he says. “No one who cares about what happens to me. I’m not in the business of making friends, love. My job is to lead an army, and it’s the only thing I’m good at. No one,” he says, “would be proud of the things I’ve accomplished. My mother doesn’t even know me anymore. My father thinks I’m weak and pathetic. My soldiers want me dead. The world is going to hell. And the conversations I have with you are the longest I’ve ever had.”Warner takes a hard, shaky breath. “Then what did you say to him?”Seven seconds die between us.“Nothing,” I whisper.Warner stills.I don’t breathe.No one speaks for what feels like forever.“Of course,” Warner finally says. He looks pale, unsteady. “You said nothing. Of course.””The bed is empty.Warner has collapsed in the corner.He’s curled into himself, knees pulled up to his chest, arms wrapped around his legs, his head buried in his arms. And he’s shaking.Tremors are rocking his entire body.I’ve never, ever seen him look like a child before. Never, not once, not in all the time I’ve known him. But right now, he looks just like a little boy. Scared. Vulnerable. All alone.””It’s the only way I know how to exist,” he says. “In a world where there is so much to grieve and so little good to take? I grieve nothing. I take everything.”I stare into his eyes for what feels like forever.He leans into my ear. Lowers his voice. “Ignite, my love. Ignite.”Kenji: I think that boy is the most complex side character I ever had the pleasure to come across. *lol* He’s funny and serious at the same time and he cares so deeply for his friends that it’s sometimes even kind of painful to watch. I loved how he cared about Juliette and how he tried his best to support her. It was pretty obvious that he didn’t agree with her opinion about Warner, yet he still accepted her decision and tried everything possible in order to understand her motives. I really wish there would be more Kenji’s out in the world and I truly hope that Kenji finds true love in the next book. Do you hear me, Mafi? I want Kenji to have a girlfriend in “Restore me”!!! He deserves it, he sooo does!!! XD If you haven’t written a girlfriend for him already, you still got plenty of time to change this!!! ;-) So yeah, do it!!!!! Oh and by the way: That’s an order and no request!!! *LOL*“You’re not bothered by all the heavy breathing going on over here?” He makes a haphazard gesture towards us.I jump away from Adam reflexively.“No,” James says, crossing his arms. “Are you?”“Disgust was my general reaction, yeah.”“I bet you wouldn’t think it was gross if it was you.”A long pause.“You make a good point,” Kenji finally says. “Maybe you should find me a lady in this crappy sector. I’m okay with anyone between the ages of eighteen and thirty-five.” He points at James. “So how about you get on that, thanks.”“Good for you. I’ll buy you a balloon the minute the world stops shitting on itself.” “Thank you,” I say, pleased. “You’re a good teacher.”“I’m good at everything,” he points out.“Humble, too.”“And really good looking.”I choke on a laugh.“It just gets really heavy sometimes.” He looks away. “Too heavy. Even for me. And some days I don’t want to laugh,” he says. “I don’t want to be funny. I don’t want to give a shit about anything. Some days I just want to sit on my ass and cry. All day long.” His hands stop moving against the mats. “Is that crazy?” he asks quietly, still not meeting my gaze.”Who’s Bruce Lee?”“Who’s Bruce Lee?” Kenji asks, horrified. “Oh my God. We can’t even be friends anymore.”“Why? Was he a friend of yours?”“You know what,” he says, “just stop. Just – I can’t even talk to you right now.”James: Oh that little boy was just so adorable and I had to laugh so hard whenever he spoke with Warner! Those two brothers had such an awesome chemistry and I loved how open and unprejudiced James was! Unlike Adam he actually saw the good in Warner and I just loved him for it! XDWarner studies Jame’s face with rapt fascination. He bends down on one knee, meets James at eye level. “And who are you?” he asks.Everyone in the room is silent, watching.”Why do you call her ‘love’?” James asks. “I’ve heard you say that before, too. A lot. Are you in love with her? I think Adam’s in love with her. Kenji’s not in love with her, though. I already asked him.”Warner blinks at him.“Well?” James asks.“Well what?”“Are you in love with her?”“Are you in love with her?”“What?” James blushes. “No. She’s like a million years older than me.”“Would anyone like to take over this conversation?” Warner asks, looking around in the group.”So, wait – then you’re not the bad guy,” James says all of a sudden. “You’re on our side, right?”Warner turns slowly to meet James’s eyes. Says nothing.“Well?” James asks, impatient. “Aren’t you on our side?”Warner blinks. Twice. “So it seems,” he says, looking as though he can hardly believe he’s saying it.Anderson: Thank god he was finally shot and didn’t even get a proper chance to say anything! I swear everything that man ever said revolted me immensely and I’m just glad that it’s over and that no word is ever going to escape his lips again. XD”And shoot him in the forehead.Twice.Once for Adam.Once for Warner.”So yeah, I loved the entire book and if there is one thing I didn’t like than it’s just the fact that the trilogy is over and that the ending was too fast. I would have liked to see more of the aftermath and I kind of hoped for some sort of epilogue, but considering the fact that Tahereh Mafi is going to write three other books I don’t feel the urge to complain! *lol* All told, I highly recommend the “Shatter me” trilogy and if you haven’t read it already you definitely should!!!! ;-)And last but not least: This was a buddy read with the awesome Megha and I was sooo damn glad I was able to talk about all those feels!!! Thanks a lot! You rock!!! XD”You know,” he whispers, his lips at my ear, “the whole world will be coming for us now.”I lean back. Look into his eyes.“I can’t wait to watch them try.”

    This book this book this book was just so PERFECT.OH GOD, it was everything I wanted and more! It has been a really LONG time since a book left me so happy and warm inside. I'm floating. And I flew through the pages of this book, I finished it in just one day and I couldn't stop. I couldn't get enough.GOD, Warner. Warner was so beautiful in this book. Every single word he spoke was beautiful and REALLY, every time he was in the pages of this book I was grinning like an idiot, because that is the effect Aaron Warner Anderson has in me. I'm totally in love with this beautiful broken boy. I love the way he always believed in Juliette and how much he loved her and MY HEART IS IN PAIN BECAUSE THE FEELS. We learn so much about Warner in this book and I can't thank Tahereh Mafi enough for that. And for writing such an awesome, badass, interesting and beautiful character. Warner have just made it to the TOP 3 of my book boyfriends, and I have to tell you, is really hard to earn a spot there (yeah I know I'm crazy).I also really loved the whole development in Juliette's character. She was so PROACTIVE and FEARLESS in this book and I was so so so thrilled for her! I liked this Juliette a lot. She didn't frustrate me at all and I am genuinely happy for all she has achieved :')...And ah... I highlighted half of the sentences in this book. Tahereh Mafi's writting never ceases to leave completely BREATHLESS. And Kenji, I loved him in this book, too...Why can't I have more of this trilogy? I want an epilogue and I just want more Warner please.OH GOD I'm so in love with this book.

    Not only we're getting a Vampire Academy movie in February 2014 but we'll get to read about King Warner slaying all the competition around Juliette. Any other option is not available and will be ignored. *bursts in*Here's my review! Warning! There will be spoilers. I won't hold my tongue for anyone. I want to be free to express my thoughts since I can't explain how much my life is ruined by fictional character to my family or friends. So if you don't want to know about which guy Juliette chose in the end, shoo! Another warning. This review won't make any sense. My thoughts are scattered all over my brain and I'm still pretty much not sure how I'm going to continue my life without a new book every winter. What mind fuckery is this? I felt like I was going crazy while reading this book. I would clutch my hair, flail all over the room, cry, yell This is my ship!, shimmy and pretend I'm taking a part in those gifs where people are REALLY excited about something. Ignite Me was better than seeing your favorite band perform live for the first time. I don't get excited easily but I was acting like a mad woman today. I never felt this way about any book/series before. Tahereh delivered again, so surprise there. I had some doubts about whether she would kill off characters. I was worried about my King getting hurt. I'm not gonna lie, if I had to choose between saving everyone else or just King Warner... well, do I even need to answer that? Readers didn't like Juliette in Shatter Me and Unravel Me but I was one of those who loved her manic ass right from the start. She grew up and learned who she really is. She's someone who fights no matter what, tried to do the right thing every time, has a kind heart and thinks positive. She's a true fighter, is determined and I love her. Adam was an useless POS, most of the time. Who'm I kidding?! He was awful towards Juliette after he found out they wouldn't be getting together. He was being an ex from hell. Juliette was being nice but he wouldn't let go of his anger. The only person he treated nicely was James. Not even Kenji could get on his good side. Kenji! The sweet sidekick. He's always helpful. He's still a mystery. Hmmm... I wonder if he'll get his own novella because I don't think he got to shine properly in this trilogy. I'm actually pissed Fracture Me ended up being Adam's novella and not Kenji's. No one asked for Adam's POV, ok?! People were demanding another Warner novella while I was the only one in there asking for more Kenji. No one wanted to read what is not inside Adam's head! Here's the part I was saving for the end. King Warner. His Stylish Majesty, Aaron Warner Anderson. AAAHHHHHH!!! Sorry! How to describe this man? He's perfect. I have nothing bad to say about him. I am ready to be ravished on the table. haha And I'm not even done there. I want him in the bathtub while we try out his soaps. I want him on the bed, bench press in the training room and in the elevator. Sorry! I got carried away again. I swear, I didn't mean to go there but my thoughts just drift. I'm gonna be serious for a second now. Warner turned out even better than I initially thought and all the haters will probably change their mind. If not, then you can just re-read Shatter Me for the rest of your life and pretend the other two master pieces never happened. A couple of weeks ago I had a conversation with one of my friends. We were discussing our exes and she said she would never like her ex now because she grew up and changed a lot. She doesn't want to cuddle a guy who's too insecure about himself and them in general. She was right. So many relationships fell apart not because people stop loving each other but because they changed. And that's the main reason I knew Adam and Juliette would never work. He would never get used to Juliette's powers, her desire to be free and to want more from life just like she doesn't want to be 'all' he wants. Chapter 55 made me cry. I was seriously freaking out while reading it and then it was over. I had to set the book down and cry for a couple of minutes. Why did I cry? Well, because my ship is canon!!! King Warner found happiness and it made me happy. Just when I thought nothing can top Chapter 55, Chapter 58 comes along and I start levitating. I can say thing with certainty- Aaron Warner is the best male character in whole bookdom. Move over Mr.Darcy, Jace, Dimitri, Will, Adrian, Eric, Barrons and all others. You can't fight me on this because there's just no way anyone has all the qualities for the sexiest man ever. He's Juliette's bird for God's sake! If you still want to comment about some other dude, please do, I'll just laugh his peasant ass off. I could write for hours about this book but I'll just stop here. Tahereh Mafi is finally replacing Richelle Mead as my favorite author. After so many year, Richelle has lost the throne. Never saw this coming. Thank you, Tahereh. For your incredibly unique prose, for your impeccable style and for giving antagonists a completely different side.

    [Updated 11/28] [Updated 11/03] So I was able to see a few snippets from The Mafi Mafia's website (Tahereh gave them an 8-chaptered excerpt of Ignite Me) and here are the current snippets we have so far! "He's on his knees."—(???)"And we are quotation marks, inverted and upside down, clinging to one another at the end of this life sentence."—(???)"No. I am not going to kill you."—Warner"I am an hour glass."—Juliette (very first sentence in the book!)"You were harmless and beautiful and you always yelled at me." —Warner"The memory of his kisses along my torso; his hands exploring my back, my bare legs, the backs of my thighs, his fingers hooking around the elastic band of my underwear— Oh."—Juliette"I never realized Warner was unaware of how deeply I detested him."—Juliette"Aaron Warner Anderson, chief commander and regent of Sector 45, son of the supreme commander of The Reestablishment.He has a soft spot for fashion."—Juliette"It makes me feel ashamed for ever having felt sorry for myself."—Juliette"My seventeen years have collapsed and buried me from the inside out."—Juliette (sentence number two!) And my favorite thus far in page 1... wake upwake up"Wake up," he whispers. If I made some mistakes please do correct me for I have only gotten these quotes by squinting for two minutes at the blurred picture of the excerpt, trying to figure out what those words are. Well that's it for now! I'll give you guys some updates soon! And have you guys seen the cover for Fracture Me? Extremely beautiful and breath-taking! [Updated ??/??]The cover and title is finally revealed! And it is beautiful!!!Another reminder: In one of Tahereh's interview, she said that there will be a conclusion on who she ends up with...and we will find that out on the beginning portion of the third book~ So what I'm trying to say is: Juliette will be having sexy times with only one of these boys in the third book and I am hoping that it is Warner <3 [Updated 6/29]Hey guys! So for those of you who want to know about Warner's tattoo, I have a hint as to why it says IGNITE:In Destroy Me, he said in one of the chapters "I grieve nothing. I take everything." And if you get all the first letters in each word, it'll spell out IGNITE.

    (more of a 3.5) While I was satisfied with the ending of this book, I still had a few issues with it. I'll talk more about it in my monthly wrap up video. :)

    ‘‘Ignite, my love. Ignite.’’Shatter Me is the kind of series I wish had more books. A trilogy is not enough. I want more.More Juliette& Warner& Adam& KenjiI had been shackled, a prisoner of my own mind. But finally, finally, I have learned to break free.I’m truly delightfully surprised at how I couldn’t stop reading this emotion-filled book, because the plot is actually very poorly developed and there is sincerely maybe three or four events happening in the whole book. But, if you’ve read book one and two, you already expect(ed) that. I’m definitely not saying it’s a bad thing: not in this case. The author wanted to focus on the characters and their thoughts, personalities and relationship with one another. And it’s fine! And different! We need these kinds of books. And, because of the author’s choice to put the characters before the main plot, I met some protagonists that I will never ever forget.Words. I think, are such unpredictable creatures. No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and failing to rip their skeletons from our flesh.What I love most about Ignite Me (and the series), however, is the writing style. It’s just so beautifully mesmerizing and can hold you captive for as long as it wishes. I believe that is why I couldn’t stop reading. I’m certain this author will become even more acclaimed than she already is and that her next series (please let it be that she will write more) will surely be even more incredible! That’s not me being a seer: it’s me loving what this author crafts with only her own imagination and looking more than forward – craving –for more. Again. This author has a hold on me it seems.I narrow my eyes. ‘‘It’s not charity,’’ I snap. He cares about me—and I care about him!’’ Warner nods, unimpressed. ‘‘You should get a dog, love. I hear they share much the same qualities.’’I’m grateful for the character development that Juliette has, because I was not entirely sure, having read the first and second when I was not reviewing books yet and so did not feel like being so severe and annalistic, if I’d enjoy this protagonist, today, in 2014. She used to be whiny and too calm and definitely way too ‘perfect’ but now she has changed and it is obviously the best change ever for her…and I mean it.The love-triangle and Juliette’s choices regarding it are not spectacular. I mean, I have heard all the reasons Adam may not be a right fit for her, but I still wasn’t happy about how the author made him look awful on purpose, it seemed, for us to appreciate Warner better. I’m okay with characterization that is different from one book to another, because of situations that happened and changed a person, but Adam always felt like an angel and the sweet and perfect boyfriend to me. And I wanted him to stay that way. That is one of the reasons why book two is the one I loved least of the series. It absolutely does not mean that I did not enjoy the romance – I did! – it only shows that I do not want to be manipulated into liking a character or not…and I felt as if I was, in this and the previous book. Still, Juliette and the person she has chosen – I can’t wait to know what you think yourself of it – will live happily ever after and that is something we at least are sure of, by the end of the story.Warner laughs out loud. He looks like he might cry. ‘‘I am going to kill your father,’’ I say to him, ‘‘and I’m going to destroy The Reestablishment.’’ He’s still smiling. ‘‘I will.’’ ‘‘I know,’’ he says. ‘‘Then why are you laughing at me?’’ ‘‘I’m not,’’ he says softly. ‘‘I’m only wondering,’’ he says, ‘‘if you would like my help.’’The pacing may be very slow since, as I said, it’s not focused on the plot much and the dialogs are actually overshadowing it quite a lot, but it still did not bother me and that due to my love toward the writing style and its originality.Oh, this is a series I would eagerly recommend you if you love dystopians + lots of romance & sexual tension + swooning + great secondary characters + unearthly beautiful writing + superpowers!Art source.

    Re-read (01/03/2018):This book is everything, I LOVE it so much !. No doubt, as I said before, I think it's the best book of the series, is the most solid and is where most of the important things happen. I loved the Julliette & Warner scenes , I can't help it, they're my babies and I'm so proud of them and of theirs growth as characters, but above all I'm so happy to have read about Kenji again, he's one of the best characters I've ever read, it's so fun and such a great friend. I can't wait for the release of Restore Me, I could cry just thinking I'll read about my babies again and I hope it doesn't ruin everything, that kind of fear is always inside me, but I have faith that it will be epic, after all, Tahereh is an incredible writer and she improved alot in her career since this trilogy, which I think will be reflected in the next book and I'm super excited about itAgain I would give it 100 stars if I could lol, but since I can't, I give it the same beautiful 5 stars that I've given beforeOriginal Review (07/07/2016)“Ignite, my love. Ignite.”I NEED TO GIVE IT MORE STARS!!Omg !, This has been so incredible !. I have to put my thoughts in order and start .... but guys, it was awesome!I have many mixed feelings right now from a lot of excitement and joy , until nostalgia and sad . :(.Speaking about the serie in general, I think it's one of those that I'll remember forever, it has made me so happy and has made me feel in love with the characters, it is a book I would recommend without doubt ever . You can find yourself in a super interesting dystopian world and with the most original characters that give a lot to the plot , which has one of the most beautiful scripts I've read .So good !.“It's the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world.”The characters have grown so much in the trilogy, I'm really very proud of them, Tehereh has achieved with her so wonderful writing give the characters an incredible progress, especially in this book, we see the clear growth of Juliette, which has gone from being a helpless frightened girl , to be the kicks-ass hero we all wanted to see !. I'm so happy about it,I love Juliette!I have come to understand the so beautiful covers that these books have, as the evolution of Juliette through time and I loved it, very symbolic and beautiful.“I like the way I feel about myself when I'm with him." I say quietly. "Warner thinks I'm strong and smart and capable and he actually values my opinion. He makes me feel like his equal--like I can accomplish just as much as he can, and more. And if I do something incredible, he's not even surprised. He expects it. He doesn't treat me like I'm some fragile little girl who needs to be protected all the time.”Ok, try to talk properly about Warneris just impossible, I can't describe with words how much I love this character. Oh I'm so in love !.It goes without saying that I love him, especially in this book, Warner's progress is incredible. I've always loved the way he supports Juliette despite everything, even though she has not left him anything easy , he just never surrendered with her .. That's so sweet. And the way this story has ended for him has been perfect, I think he has won a lot in his life and I feel that really is striving to change and open up to others, that's excellent. P.S: I need a Warner in my life right now. He is so hot“I promise myself then, in that moment, that I will hold him forever, just like this, until all the pain and torture and suffering is gone, until he's given a chance to live the kind of life where no one can wound him this deeply ever again.” Juliette and Warner FOREVER!(view spoiler)[The scenes of sex/love between them! .. Guys, still not created a word for that. PERFECTION! (hide spoiler)]Kenji has given a special seasoning to the history always bringing humor and sweetness. I love him!.The dialogues with Juliette are gold, so honest!, Gives much pleasure to read. Fully one of the most beautiful friendships I've read! :)“Hey, um, I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm looking for a friend of mine," he says. "Have you seen her? She's a tiny little thing, cries a lot, spends too much time with her feelings-""Shut up, Kenji!""Oh wait!" he says. "It is you.”I've never felt love for Adam and personally think that he was so annoying in this book, I think it still is a character who needs grow up. I can't help it , but I have to give him the credit because I think that thanks to him Juliette has become who she is today, with his defiant personality , Adam achievement awaken the warrior on her.So guys, super recommend this saga now and forever !, is so magical and amazing, not wasted ... The world is unique, the characters are incredible and has a captivating plot !. So amazing!["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    “Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures. No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence. Swords may cut and kill, but words will stab and stay, burying themselves in our bones to become corpses we carry into the future, all the time digging and falling to rip their skeletons from our flesh.”Story ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Stories end when you’re shot in the heart. It’s over. There’s no story left to be told. Except the person is not dead. And now she finally found her rage, her bravery, her power. There’s nothing to stop her to kill the one responsible. There’s nothing to stop her going to war. But she doesn’t need to do it alone. There are friends, a self selected family.There is a soldier who’s heart is in her hands. There is power to be controlled and people to be killed. And Juliette is ready. This book is my favorite book of the whole series (but I haven’t read “restore me” it’s coming out in a few days - so, who knows?). There is action, there is loss and there are so many emotions. I laughed, I cried and I smiled like a crazy maniac. Never stop at the first book, because the third one is the absolute best - a wonderful way to write a finale. Characters ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Juliette changed, she’s not the whiny, scared girl anymore. She is ready to fight, ready to give up her own life for the right cause. She trains to control her powers, to fight and she becomes braver every day. And with that the walls in her heart are being destroyed one by one until finally she can admit her own feelings and doubts. She’s not afraid to be herself anymore. I loved that about her. I was a little bit annoyed when she was useless, lonely and sad all the time. She was crying so much, but then she finally had the character development we all needed (and wanted) from her. She finally became a strong powerful female leader. I loved it!“I am not longer afraid of fear, and I will not let it rule me. Fear will learn to fear me.”Warner - first of all - calling someone “love” will forever be the death of me. It’s like my favorite thing ever. Every time he said “love” my heart jumped and I smiled dumbly. And that’s just the first thing about him. He is also the best partner and best love interest anyone could dream of. He has his flaws and issues, but nevertheless he is so supportive, so filled with love and concern for this special person. He’s caring, full of love and makes my heart jump every time he smiles. He never doubted her or her powers. He never saw her as a weak girl. He wanted her to use the powers that were given to her. He wanted her to fight, to be strong, to be her true self - A true leader. He was a fascinating and powerful character and I love him so so much ♥️Adam - well, I won’t say anything, because it will spoiler everything. But I can say that everyone changes being surrounded with war, stress and loss. He’s not the nice boy he was in the first book. He grew, he showed more and more of his character. And maybe I was mad at him for being like this, but he still was the boy who showed Juliette kindness, when no one did. He cared for her, tried to save her. Tried to be everything for her. He is a nice guy, I never doubted that. He’s just not the right guy. Relationships ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Oh, my heart ♥️Finally, finally I get what I craved from the moment I started the first book. I got a happy, strong female character with a love interest that knows that she’s in no need of a hero. She needs someone who supports her, someone she can trust with her life, someone who’s caring and strong, but would never think about Juliette as a weak girl who needs saving. And finally she found her way to him. My heart was so happy all the time, I can’t even describe it. After reading this book I was so satisfied with the whole story. (Even though I wanted more! - thank god we get another book!) I was smiling the whole time reading this. I love those two so much together ♥️ This relationship, this friendship is everything I wish for myself.“It’s the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world.”Did you ever read about a character that you loved from the start? A character you wished would be your best friend? Yeah, that’s Kenji. Do you want a sassy friend who makes you laugh? Check ✅Do you want someone who you can talk to no matter what? Check ✅Someone who supports you even though you could kill him with your touch? Check ✅Who hugs you and trains you and is just the best friend ever? Check ✅ “Hey, um, sorry to bother you, but I’m looking for a friend of mine. Have you seen her? She’s a tiny little thing, cries a lot, spends too much time with her feelings...” “Shut up, Kenji.”GIVE ME A BEST FRIEND LIKE KENJI! 😍😍😍😍Writing style ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Oh Tahereh Mafi, you talented mastermind. You were my author role model from the moment I read the first page of your book.The writing is just so beautiful. It’s poetic and filled with metaphors from the beginning. But the more you read the more you get to know that the writing changes. Because the writing shows you the character change - the development of Juliette’s character. It was beautiful, it was awesome and it was the best thing ever. I’m so glad I found this series and started it. And I’M SO EXCITED FOR RESTORE ME 🤩🤩🤩🤩

    “Ignite, my love. Ignite.” I feel so ashamed for giving this book just three stars. In fact, I've been thinking that this series has the potentials to climb up to the top of this genre easily, at least for me. It has the abilities to push those characters further and the relationship is great even if it's overly sweet but acceptable for me, but sadly the ending ruined it all. After two books, Juliette and Warner are my only focus, they're so outstanding I can't think less of them. Besides, the romance in this book, as I said, is very intense you can't peel your eyes off even though you try so hard. It captured my attention since these two guys stepped on the scene I felt as though everything was right, just right.“It's the kind of kiss that inspires stars to climb into the sky and light up the world.” At first, the story got me excited and I couldn't do anything more than just kept reading. Warner is a charming character, he pushes and motivates the whole book towards the ending pretty well, and when it finally comes, this skyscraper helplessly falls down. I was a bit let down by how easy it is, I knew that Juliette has her superpower to conquer everything but I didn't expect it'd be this simple. The magic is gone. So this is what I felt toward the ending ...“I promise myself then, in that moment, that I will hold him forever, just like this, until all the pain and torture and suffering is gone, until he's given a chance to live the kind of life where no one can wound him this deeply ever again.” Despite the disappointing ending, this series is worth reading and I enjoyed almost every part of it. Shatter Me is a story about a girl who has a gift she doesn't ever want. She meets two guys playing in the big part of her life. The war between love and power. True love being found in the world of ruination. The gargantuan development of the girl who has nothing except herself and power.Highly recommend !(view spoiler)[For Adam, I wanna kick your ass so badly. You're such a jerk. Damn it ! I really want my old Adam back. You shouldn't have done that.

    THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS I think I read chapter 55, like 100 times. Warner and Juliette finally got together (It's about time). Reading this book made me fall in love with Warner all over again. The compassion and care he has for Juliette is truly astounding. I was extremely disappointed with the ending of this book as I think Tahereh got lazy in the last 20 chapters and just rushed everything! (Or she got annoyed with my constant emails asking for the book to be released) The death of Anderson went way too quickly and she could have included a twist there! I didnt like Adam at all in this book, he annoyed me beyond belief. My favourite characters were Warner (OF COURSE), Kenji and Sonya and Sara. I was also disappointed that Kenji didn't get with either Sonya and Sara (as I said the ending was brief). Juliette certainly took her sweet time deciding if she loved Warner or not and that certainly annoyed me but thank God we got there in the end. I'm very sad the series is over but I look foward to reading more from this author as although she rushed the end she is a very descriptive and talented writer. Hats off to you Tahereh Mafi

    Well I loved this book the most. Juliette and Warner FINALLY get together. There are a lot of revelations between them. Warner lets down his guard in a lot of areas. The Omega's have been wiped out . . . well most of them. There is way too much drama with Adam going off his rocker. I think it was all written out very clearly why there was supposedly love between Adam and Juliette. It wasn't really love, but you have to read the book to find out! Ha! Kenji is his same funny self. Although, he did have a little bit of a break down because we can't always keep everyone up and laughing. I'm glad him and Juliette are best friends, we all need someone like that. But some of the funny things he says and I agree with him on the Bruce Lee matter! Everyone was looking at me. "What do you think?" I ask. "Your suite looks just like mine." Kenji frowns. "I'm supposed to be the one with the black suit. Why can't you have a pink suit? Or a yellow suit-""Because we're not the freaking Power Rangers," Winston says, rolling his eyes. "What the hell is a Power Ranger?" Kenji shoots back."Are you out of your goddamn mind? You think we can take on two hundred soldiers? I know I am an extremely attractive man, J, but I am not Bruce Lee.""Who's Bruce Lee?""Who's Bruce Lee?" Kenji asks, horrified. "Oh my God. We can't even be friends anymore.""Why? Was he a friend of yours?""You know what," he says, "just stop. Just--I can't even talk to you right now."Juliette does master the control of her powers. A bunch of them get together with her and Warner to defeat Anderson. It was too cool the things that Juliette does. And even though there isn't a lot of action in the book, the parts that were, I loved! And that's good enough for me :-)Now, Juliette is in control and they will have to fight many wars. But with her friends and Warner by her side, anything is possible. Fin . . MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading List

    This was perfect! Everything about it. The only thing I would change about it is maybe making it like 2 times thicker, because I need MOOOORE. Right now! I'm going through some really weird withdraws, because I need Aaron Warner. I used to dream of a character like him, desperately hoping someone would materialize it, and I must say, Taherah. You did an amazing job.I am so happy that this happened. I just want to scream out everything that happened but it's all super spoilery. So I'll just talk about Juliette's awesome transformation for a sec. I wasn't necessarily a fan of her, I only really liked her when she was with Warner, because she would get all sassy and break through walls and doors and stuff. But when she was with Adam she was mushy and would blink and blush all the time. I was in a constant state of over dramatic eye rolling.But in Ignite Me, she was.... Just..... Awesome. Like everything Warner was trying to convince her she could be, she was becoming. And it was an amazing transformation to watch. She wasn't letting anyone tell her that she couldn't, because she was going to do this regardless.Juliette becoming her own person, also brought out this supportive, amazing-man, side of Warner that just melted me. All he wanted was to be there to witness her amazing ness, and he had all the faith in the world, that she could do whatever it was that she wanted to do. Oh gosh I need to reread this but I can't stop my overflow of emotions right now. And Adam supporters, this is all I have to say to you: Chapter 55

    This is probably more like a 4.7ish but WOW. I honestly wish there was a fourth book...or an epilogue...or something. But overall I loved this.Knocking this down to a four a few days after. Still obviously really enjoyed it, but after talking about it out loud I just realized I had some issues with it that don't really line up with the five star rating.

    BRILLIANT! MINDBLOWING! FIVE STARSFIVE STARSFIVE STARSFIVE STARSIf I could give Ignite me more than five stars, I definitely would. I read this novel about a year ago but never got around to writing a review. This was the perfect end to a brilliant series. And Warner *sighs* he is officially my best book boyfriend ever. This series was just WOW DEFINITELY FIVE STARS

    Find me on Instagram & Twitter!I can't believe how much this series has grown and evolved to get to where it has ended. It just feels so bittersweet that I'm finally done!I really liked Ignite Me, but I didn't love it as much as Unravel Me. In fact, I did have a few complains. I'll go more into this later but I wasn't too fond that this final book focused way too much on the romance. I could say that only 100 pages out of the 400 total had to do with bringing down The Reestablishment. And because of that, we really didn't have too much action going on. You can tell that Tahereh Mafi spent too much time with the romance because once you get towards the final chapters, everything just feels so rushed. The Big Bad Wolf that everyone is afraid of dies within like two minutes of coming face to face with Juliette. Lol really? I don't know, but I do feel a little unsatisfied with the ending. It was a happy ending, just not a very good one since it ends so abruptly. I wished Tahereh actually wrote a heartfelt, bittersweet ending to wrap this whole trilogy up. Instead you're just left thinking, "Oh... that's it? That's the ending?"So, let's talk...Characters:1. Juliette: Wow, I can't even begin to explain how much Juliette has grown as a character. ABOUT FREAKIN TIME. I was tired of the self-pitying crybaby that Juliette was in the first two books. No more of the "I want to die", "I don't deserve to live", "Everybody hates me" speeches. Thank god! She's definitely gotten stronger and determined.2. Adam: I liked Adam. But after reading Ignite Me, I really DON'T anymore. He was just whiny, overbearing, selfish, everything a boyfriend shouldn't be. Of all the books I've read, I can easily say that he's the biggest asshole ever! He treated Juliette like shit and I'm glad she actually fought back and didn't let him step all over her and hold her back. Adam is the type of boyfriend that would make you give up everything you could ever want or work for, just so you can settle and be with him. I don't get how he had the heart to tell Juliette all those things! I understand that he was upset, but he was a loose cannon in almost every chapter and I just wanted him to shut up because he was destroying all the good qualities I liked about him.3. Warner: <3333333333333333333333 I've never had a book boyfriend before, nor did I ever want one because no male character has been able to sweep me off my feet with just a turn of a page... UNTIL NOW. Aaron Warner Anderson is officially my book boyfriend and husband. <3 He was just all kinds of perfect. I just loved how we got to see the real Warner and the soft side that nobody knew he had. Ahhhhh, marry me.4. Kenji: I'm just glad that Kenji was always there to make us laugh even at the most inappropriate of times. He just made this whole series better with his sense of humor! However, I enjoyed seeing his more serious side as well and his friendship with Juliette. I loved the fact that we actually got a relationship between a male and female without the romance.But I really wished we had more girls in this series. All the girls that were introduced were only in the background and had very few lines. We needed more girl power! We needed more girls that could kick ass! Juliette was surrounded by all guys, and it would've been really refreshing to see her interact with more girls and break up all the male testosterone.Romance:I'm a HUGE sucker for romance, but I felt like Ignite Me focused a little too much on the love triangle. I could say that 95 percent of the book consisted of Adam and Juliette's post-relationship drama and the development of Warner and Juliette's relationship. The remaining 5 percent includes the final "battle" and everything leading up to it.I'm definitely not complaining about the romance though! I was swooning and loving every single moment of Warner/Juliette. And I'm the happiest girl in the world because THE COUPLE I WAS SHIPPING FINALLY ENDS UP TOGETHER FOR ONCE. I could cry from happiness because my couple never ends up together! :')I was never really on board with Adam/Juliette but after reading Shatter Me, I really thought they were endgame considering how their relationship was perfectly convenient. However, that didn't stop me from catching the feels when Adam and Juliette officially go their separate ways. Their drama was annoying the living crap out of me, but at the same time, I just felt bad. They gave up everything to be with each other and put their feelings out there for the first time despite everything that was going on. It was literally them against the world at one point, and I really felt for them. BUT, my couple ends up together so those sad feels were short-lived. :POkay. Now, I'm just going to go sit here and wallow in my withdrawals because it's over. :'(

    “Ignite, my love. Ignite.”You can find my thoughts on thoughts on the entire series and what I hope we will see in Restore Me HERE!Thoughts on book three:Hands down the best book out of the seriesAll of the Juliette Warner scenes, literally all of them were amazing, especially Chapter 55 😍Warner uplifting Juliette throughout this book yet againAdam needs to remove his shitty ass attitude from this book, when he told Juliette to drop dead, I was like ” did he just say what I think he said?” AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THAT, ADAM! GET LOST.Warner’s mom, I cryI do wish that the actual fighting/war with Anderson would have lasted a little bit longer. It was SO quick and felt a little rushed at timesFinally seeing all of Warner’s intentions laid out on the table was amazing, I cry againI now understand why Restore Me, still needs to happen because there are SO MANY questions I still haveAll in all, guys, this series was just a breath of fresh air, and I am so sorry at mad at myself that I slept on this series for so long. If you haven’t given this series a shot already 10/10 would recommend. You can bet that I already have Restore Me, pre-ordered and will be binge reading the shit out of it the day it comes out, especially because it has Warner’s POV in it. What did we do to deserve that? I am so excited.

    "It's like a soap opera." Ian nods. "But with worse acting."I couldn't have said it any better. That's what this book actually is.It's been a while since I read a dystopian book. I read the first 2 back in 2015 and while I wasn't hard to please then, I still didn't like them. The writing style annoyed me, the characters irritated me, and the books bored me. Not much has changed since. So this is the final book in the trilogy (yeah yeah, I know we have extra books now but it's something recent). Normally, you expect the last book to be action packed with and an actual resolution. This one was neither. It took Juliette 350 pages to decide if she wants Warner or Adam. Don't get me wrong, she knew she didn't want Adam but, but does she truly love Warner?I'm not sure if this a bad or a good thing but the characters we met in the first 2 books are not the same. ➺Juliette is not the same girl, she's more confident and she thinks she's the one who should lead the rebellion and not anyone else.➺ Warner is the angel now. All his actions are lamely excused. It was all to make her better *snorts*➺ Adam is suddenly the jealous obsessed boyfriend. The used to be nice is now suddenly awful. How else can Juliette choose between the boys? One of them should be obviously bad.➺ Kenji, the only decent character, is now kissing "J"'s ass. A 17 yo barely educated suddenly wants to lead a nation. A teenager who has 0 experience in politics or how governments work. She can't even decide who she really loves, how is she supposed to make judgments affecting the whole nation? I'm sure her nation will prosper. After the death of all their peers, she blames them for not wanting to fight back anymore. Yeah, right. Suddenly she's the suphero. She only needs a cape now.The author was obviously trying to make us love Warner but justifying his actions by "because he wanted to help her". All he ever did, was for her benefit. What about torturing Adam? We never get an excuse for this action. You know why? Because there are none. When Juliette is wary of him, he's shocked. How can she act like this? After all, he did everything for her. He was trying to help. No, he didn't lock her for over 200 days and isolated her from any human contact (you know pervert soldiers), no he didn't make her go through hellish experiences (stimulation, of course), and he didn't look like an obsessed psycho (whom I very much preferred). He's just a misunderstood person who doesn't give a shit what other thinks about him, oh poor boy. He tells her sweet things thinking what he's doing is right which is not. Then Adam is acting all crazy and calling Juliette and Warner for their shit so he's the bad guy (he overreacted too much). I've been across many love-triangles but this one is surely one of the worst because the author is forcing us to love a used to be psycho character by making him a martyr of his own society (daddy used to beat him) and the one who is supposed to be a saint became an asshole. No logic here. I didn't even like Adam but here am I, defending him. Some authors subtly manipulate their readers looking at you SJM but for it to be done so obviously done and so sudden? Come on!Kenji my sweet funny boy is NOT funny anymore and being a loyal poppet to Juliette, the understanding best friend. Oh, please *eye roll* The other minor characters Ian, Sarah, James, etc... were better than the MCs. Too bad they didn't get much attention. This book is pure drama and the action part (it can be summed up in 20 pages from 400) was too easy. Suddenly Juliette is so strong and Warner too. Perfect, right? They're the ultimate couple, after all. They can now keep everything under control. This trilogy could've been summed up in 1 book without all this angst bullshit. I read 400 pages in less than 4 hours which is a record for me but not so much because I was skipping sometimes paragraphs while understanding everything BECAUSE NOTHING WAS GOING ON. I did not fall under Warner's charms nor admired Juliette's growth. The book is a romance set in a very simple dystopian world.(view spoiler)[ Then she comes up with a ridiculous plan to save the day and of course, it works. (hide spoiler)]Many things in this book made me cringe:- Warner's sweet talk.- Kenji's obsession with Juliette- WARNER USING THE WORD LOVE. Oh, the cringe. It was used over 50 times... This made cringe so hard that I was trying to find any possible way to avoid reading the sentences in which he says love.While the list of my the eye roll moments is infinite, here are some worth mentioning:- Juliette's power enlightening moments.- Warner justifying badly his actions.- Juliette-trying-to-be-badass moments.- Overall, the romance.-The over dramatic writing styleThe ending was so abrupt, so fast, so illogical. I can see why she's making a sequel but isn't including an epilogue better? Three more books, seriously? I bet they'll be mostly romance. Like Ignite me. A theme like this one was barely handled 3 books. I can't imagine how much adding 3 will make it drag.I honestly had no interest in reading this book but my friend had the paperback and I don't read printed copies so often... Plus I only have one book left which is not much, I don't like to leave series unfinished when I can read it all. I had -93501230713092 expectations and I knew I'll hate this book, it did help honestly. For an instance, I was considering giving it 2 stars but then again, that's mostly the physical book playing charms on me (I find it harder to give them a low rating than ebooks). I am not sure I will read the new book when it comes out, we'll see. However, I know I won't be reading any of Mafi's other work.
