tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life -quoted from GoodReads

Unravel Me is an intensely additive read with danger, hot romances, and a few shocking twists that will leave you begging for more! Tahereh Mafi out did herself with this sequel. When you finish the last page you'll fight the urge to want to sit there and re-read it all over again. This is a book you will not be able to put down. 

This has been one this year's most anticipated books for me and holy awesome Tahereh Mafi writing this book not only lived up to my exceptions, it blew them away like I knew it would. It wasn't only those shocking plot twists that did it for me, but that kissy scene towards the end of the book is just as hot at the holy water scene between Tessa and Will. Infernal Device fans know exactly what I'm talking about. Holy hotness batman! I can't even talk about this scene without giving anything away. All I will say is Tahereh left me speechless after this scene and that's not something that happens very often. *fans self* There's more to this scene that just the kissing, and no, I'm not talking about that... get your heads out of the gutter. I'm talking about the twist that is this scene. *fan girl dances around and runs off to read it again*

This book!! I'm sorry. I've turned into a total fan girl over this book. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Shatter Me, but Unravel Me, seriously unraveled all sorts of shocking twists and then it ENDED! Seriously, this book was not meant to end, and especially on the note it ended on. I love this sequel. Really, truly love it. Normally when I'm reading a series I pick up the sequel not excepting to love it as much as the first book, but there are those few series that completely sweep me off my feet and make me love the sequel as much or more than the first book. Those series turn into me into this fan girl reviewer who wants to just by in all caps READ THIS BOOK! I LOVED IT and be done with my review. There are so many things I want to gush about with this book, but I can't because of spoilers. I will say, Tahereh threw me for a loop a few times with the storyline. I did not see some of the events that happened, coming. Talk about shocking plot twists, there are some awesome twists in this story! 

Aside from the shocking twists and that those HOT, HOT kissy scenes (yes there is more than one scene), I loved getting to see Juliette in a different light. She's still that incredibly strong women I loved from the moment I met her in Shatter Me, but this time around I felt I connected with her a bit more on an emotional level. She's not only coping with living in the compound, which would drive me as crazy as it's driving her,  she's also battling with her heart, and her urge to want to seek revenge over things that happen in this book, on top of learning to control her power. In the mix of all this Juliette has to make some tough choices. When your power of touch can kill the person you love, is it worth being with them? It is worth you're killing them or worth loving them from a distance? I felt like I was anguishing over the choices Juliette had to make, especially when it came to Adam. These two are so ridiculous cute together. I also cheered on that "I will kill you if you mess with those I love" side of her. She's my hero right now. She's fearless, brave and this girl can kick some butt. 

Call me demented, but I fell for Warner a bit in Shatter Me. Yes I know he has his issues, and by the end of the book I loved that Juliette did what she did to him to get away in that one scene. But with UNRAVEL ME, Tahereh made me fall in love in Warner all over again! Yes I know it's probably wrong to admit that, but dang it, she made me see him in a completely different light and I couldn't help it. I actually felt bad for him, and have this hope he might/could change. At the same time, there's something that seems a little off.  He's cunning, and he knows what to say, how to say it and how to win the game he's playing. I'm torn with him. Part of me wants to know what he's getting at, and the other part of me thinks he really can change. Curse you Tahereh for making me fall for Warner. He's that classic broken bad boy that I can't help but fall for. 

Unravel Me is AWESOME! READ THIS BOOK! I LOVED IT! I don't know what else to say. If you've read this book and want to talk spoilers, email me or message me on Goodreads! I'm dying to talk about this book with someone.
