Review: Imagine Me

Title: Imagine Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Date of Publication: March 31st, 2020

DA2A1583-4450-4E19-AFD3-E7A6C9C57FBC

Goodreads Summary:

Juliette Ferrars.

Ella Sommers.

Which is the truth and which is the lie?

Now that Ella knows who Juliette is and what she was created for, things have only become more complicated. As she struggles to understand the past that haunts her and looks to a future more uncertain than ever, the lines between right and wrong—between Ella and Juliette—blur. And with old enemies looming, her destiny may not be her own to control.

The day of reckoning for the Reestablishment is coming. But she may not get to choose what side she fights on.

My Review:

So this was the final book to my favorite series ever and I was so scared! Thankfully, it did not disappoint!

I loved being in Juliette’s head again! Kenji was funny as usual! I just wish Warner had more POV chapters this time but that’s okay because my boy was still there a lot! And I always love the scenes between Juliette and Warner! Swoon!

There was awesome action in this one along with perfect, beautiful writing! Books 2, 3, and 5 are still my faves but this was addicting too! I still have some questions, but the story ended on an excellent note! However, there could totally be more!

Review: Reveal Me

Title: Reveal Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Date of Publication: October 8th, 2019

1E8056A1-3402-4789-8A1C-21A71696046B

Goodreads Summary:

This fourth companion novella to Tahereh Mafi’s New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series is narrated by fan favorite character Kenji Kishimoto!

The explosive revelations in Defy Me have left readers reeling and desperate for answers. This fourth and final novella in the series will bring readers back to the world of the Shatter Me before the final novel installment hits shelves in winter 2020.

My Review:

This series has been my favorite since I first read the original three and still continues to be! I was excited to be back in Kenji’s head because he’s such an awesome character! He feels real, and his head is a mess with so many thoughts. And he’s funny! But also emotional, caring, and loyal.

I really liked the scenes between him and Nezeera because, like him, we never know whether to trust her or not. But from this one novella, we learn so much, about him, about her, about the others! Of course there is a freaking cliffhanger that makes me want the next book ASAP!!

Review: Defy Me

Title: Defy Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Date of Publication: April 2nd, 2019

007ED5EB-FEF5-4B3C-90C1-AF86D1727893

Goodreads Summary:

Juliette Ferrars isn’t who she thinks she is.

Nothing in her world is what it seemed. She thought she’d finally defeated the Reestablishment. She thought she’d finally taken control of her life, her power, and her pain. But Juliette has only just begun to unravel a lifetime of lies, and she finds herself faced with a familiar choice:

Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

This time, she’s not alone. Stronger, braver, and more resilient than ever, Juliette will fight for life and love with her friends by her side—but first, she has to survive the war being waged against her mind:

She has to remember who she was.

My Review:

After the last book I was so scared to read this one, seriously! Juliette and Warner had gone through such a mess in the first three books, and then the last book was like, nooooooooooo! And then this, tear my freaking heart apart with the back flash scenes, already. I was balling like a baby!

I loved Juliette in this, loved Warner in this, really loved Kenji in this! Those are my three little children! Nazeera was awesome too, and her character ARC really opened up and shined here!

There are a lot of twists here, a lot of shocking moments, a lot of me with heart eyes and teary eyes and all kinds of emotional eyes! And that freaking ending was perfect, which only makes me scared for this last book! But I need it now!!!!!

Review: Shadow Me

Title: Shadow Me

Goodreads Summary:

Juliette is still reeling from Warner’s betrayal, and Kenji is trying to balance his friendship with her with his responsibilities as a leader of the resistance against the Reestablishment. Things get even more interesting when an unexpected person from Omega Point’s past surfaces.

My Review:

Oh, yes, it’s Kenji’s turn for a novella! And being inside his head was even better than expected! He’s funny, he’s emotional, he’s giving while being perfectly flawed!

The novella pretty much goes along with book four, but seeing things from Kenji’s perspective puts a whole new spin on things. And after reading this, I want a whole book just being inside his head!

Tahereh can write such amazing characters, and this only makes me want the fifth book even more. The world has become a mess, and I want to see what these characters do to help stitch it back together!

Review: Restore Me

Title: Restore Me

Author: Tahereh Mafi

Date of Publication: March 6th, 2018

Goodreads Summary:

Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?

My Review:

Okay, so I was super duper scared to go into this one since Shatter Me is my favorite series ever. But of course I was intrigued. Especially when I found out it was going to be told in two perspectives, and one of those being Warner!

I loved that this book was dark, depressing, and addicting. I already knew going in, since it was going to be book number 4 and there are going to be six total, that there were going to be things that would piss me off and drive me crazy. And boy did they ever!

I’m also so glad that Mafi writes these teens like teens and not like their forty. Because when I was a teen I was an idiot and made dumb choices—I’m pretty sure I still do now! Also, the chemistry between Juliette and Warner was just as good as before. Whether they are happy or arguing it’s all ignited!

Just don’t go into book four expecting all sunshine and rainbows! I absolutely loved it! And am aching for the next book because holy smokes, that cliffhanger!

Date of publication: August 30, 2016

furth

Goodreads Summary:

There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.

But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit—and with a liar by her side in land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father Alice must first find herself—and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.
