Book Review and Giveaway- Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

It's time for YA Friday! Today I'm taking a look at a much anticipated sequel- Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi. I have my advanced review copy to give away, just fill out the rafflecopter form at the bottom. If you don't see it, click 'read more'.

The Story-
Juliette is now at Omega Point with Adam and Kenji. She tries to fit in, but people are afraid of her ability to kill by touch. Soon Juliette finds herself withdrawing, and worse, Adam is losing his resistance to her powers.

Juliette struggles to harness her powers, knowing that a conflict with the ReEstablishment is fast approaching. Complicating issues is the capture of Warner, who still loves Juliette, and seems to have turned a corner in his evilness.

Decisions need to be made, and quickly. But, can Juliette allow herself to use the full extent of her devastating power, and if she can't, will she end up losing Adam,Warner or both?



My Thoughts-
Oh wow, this is a great sequel! First off, we have Juliette, a character who is both strange and intriguing. In book 1, Shatter Me, I found her a little too passive. This book begins that way too, but then Kenji gives Juliette a little talking to, and it is everything I've want to say to her character since book 1. I was so excited, and it looks like Juliette's character is finally evolving into an action based, pro-active heroine.

Then we have the love triangle. It is steamy hot. In this book we see Adam take a back seat, and become almost a desperate character. Then we see Warner take front stage, and with the author delving into his past, we become sympathetic, and want her with him.

This book is action packed all the way. You won't want to put it down. Now I can't wait for the next one :)

  6. I liked Adam from the very beginning! I never liked Warner, but it seems like everyone who's read Unravel Me likes Warner. I feel like she'll leave Adam and it makes me sad, I'm scared to read the book, but I want to read it, because of what will happen between them.
