UnRavel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi


Book Description

February 5, 2013
Juliette is still haunted by her deadly touch.  But now that she has teamed up with other revels with powers of their own, she’ll be able to fight back against The Reestablishment to save her  broken world.  With the help of these new allies, she’ll also finally learn the secret behind Adam’s  – and Warner’s – immunity to her killer skin.
Unravel Me is perfect  for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu.  Ransom Riggs, #1  New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, raves: “A thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love, the Shatter Me series is a must read for fans of dystopian young adult literature – or any literature!”
Review –
This is turning into one of my favorite young adult series of all times.  I’m again listening to the audio version and the narrator does such a top-notch job that you can truly picture all of the characters which makes the entire story come to life. In the paper version the author writes with strike outs and so on the audiobook when a strike out occurs it sounds like chalk running across a blackboard.
As in the first there are many passages that stand out because of the language used. In the following it is Juliette says these words.
1. His breath is melting my blood and splashing across my cheeks.
2. My heart is beating so hard I’m surprised it’s not bleeding.
3. I want to trust but it scares the skin off my bones.
4. I can’t see through the curtain of tears.
5.The jaws of life are stretching their joints-grinding their teeth, yawning themselves awake.
6. The ground looks around, its mouth gapping open.
7. I’m checking my pockets for spare words.
Juliette does say the word WHAT many many many times in the course of the book (the first one too)  and it makes her sound stupid, but I overlook that because it’s just a flaw in her character and no character is perfect.
I love that at the end Juliette is ready to take her gloves off, meaning she is seriously ready to fight against The Reestablishement and mend the broken piece by piece.
Can’t wait for Ignite Me.           I rated this book five stars *****
