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

Okay, this story was kind of boring…hahaha!  Just kidding!  I loved it!  The story was seriously really, really, very, very good.  I’m so happy that it didn’t fall under the curse of the second book in a series.  It’s not just a filler book, not even close!  I’d say it was even better than Shatter Me.  A lot happened in Unravel Me and there was a lot of action, a lot of romance, and a lot of new discoveries.  We discover more about Juliette’s power and all of its glory, we find out Adam’s power, and we meet new character and learn more about Shatter Me‘s secondary characters.  I also loved that some areas are more developed in this book, which is nice because I felt like they were missing in Shatter Me (such as the development of Juliette’s relationship with Warner and her internal conflict).

I think that Juliette is loveable.  I definitely connected and identified with her.  She can be frustrating at times, like when you know she should be using her power but she’s too afraid or freaked out to do so.  But, she is so incredibly badass when she does use it!

Adam (love interest #1) is sweet and kind and secretive.  We don’t actually see as much of him as in Shatter Me, but don’t worry…he is still present and accounted for.
Warner (love interest #2) is very confusing and frustrating and I just wish he would be strong enough to stray from his shitty father and do the right thing!  Ugh…Warner is likeable and hateable at the same time.
Kenji!  I have to talk about Kenji.  He is one of my favourite characters in Unravel Me!  He’s just awesome. Kenji has some kind of broken past, that we don’t get to know very much about, but he still manages to let it go and embrace the good in life.  He also whips Juliette into shape (so to speak)!
Overall, I would definitely recommend this book!  I thought Shatter Me was good, but Unravel Me (this one) was fantastic!  I cannot wait to read the third book!!  If you like Shatter Me, or even just though it was okay, you should read this one; it’s even better than the first, which is rare.  Dystopia, YA, Romance fans will love it!

  1. Great review! I read the first sentence and I was like, what, boring?! LOL 🙂 I really hope we get to see more of Kenji in book 3 or maybe in his own novella, love his character. I also liked this book more than book 1, Juliette and nice-Warner are such an interesting couple!

  2. Hi Sam,

    It’s nice to meet you! Great Review! I’ve been meaning to check out this series, and I’m glad that it didn’t suffer the curse of the second book in a series! I love Dystopians, and this one sounds perfect with action, romance, and new discoveries! I can see where you would be frustrated with Warner. Which guy do you like better, Adam or Warner? Thanks for sharing your thoughts 🙂

    • You should check it out! Umm…oh my…Adam or Warner? I really don’t know who I like better! Adam is, of course, good for Juliette; but I think she might want Warner more (even though she won’t admit it). I’m leaning toward Warner, but he’s so back and forth and confusing and probably bad for her! If he were to change and be on the good side of things, then I would pick him for sure. But, then I feel bad for Adam! Ugh…why would you ask me such a question? Lol.
