Goodreads Synopsis:





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.

My Review:

This book made my heart explode into a million pieces.....

In, Shatter Me, I really liked Tahereh's style of writing. She used similes and metaphors through out the book. Although it was awkward at first trying to read this interesting writing style, as I kept reading, I was able to appreciate it more. However, I'm guessing many people didn't like this and that's understandable. But her writing style stood out to me the most. She used crossed out words, which was what Juliette wanted to say, but she couldn't say and that is the most interesting part of her writing. It gives the reader an insight of what is truly going on in Juliette's mind.  

My Touch Is Lethal. My Touch Is Power.

Tahereh's writing has definitely improved in this second installment. She had it figured out in book one, but book two was ON POINT. Her writing was better. It griped the reader from the first page, the metaphors and similes held more meaning and her character development was well done. Although I'm still not sure if I like Juliette or not. 

So after running away, Adam and Juliette are now hiding in an underground facility working on the resistance. Juliette is learning how to fight, figuring out who she is, and what powers she is able to use. While Adam is undergoing tests of his own, trying to figure out why he has the ability to touch Juliette. The answers are not good for either of them. This causes a riff in their relationship and pulls them apart. At this point I thought Adam was stupider than a sack of hay. He won't talk to Juliette, he won't spend time with her, and most of all he's pushing her away. I understand Juliette's reasons for pushing Adam away, but Adam didn't even fight for her. It was very frustrating and it broke my heart to see them apart.

Oh  Warner. How I thought you were a psycho bastard?! And how hard I tried to hate you, to stay on Team Adam. But I can't resist you're charm no longer! In Unravel Me, we go deeper into Warner's mind and learn many things about him. For one, he is NOT the psycho, his father is, the Supreme Commander Anderson. Anderson was truly a bastard. He abused Warner with words at every chance he got. He laughed at Warner for being weak, for having feelings or being soft towards his mother, and for taking his mothers last name. It was sad how he was treated, but I loved the way Warner handled himself. He was proud, graceful, and fierce. Not to mention the way he eloquently spoke to Juliette made my heart melt into a puddle of much!

All I have to say is, I can't wait to read the final book in this series! I really want Warner to have a bigger part in the third installment and more scenes with Juliette. And not to mention the cover is GORGEOUS!
