Summary: Add to your TBR pile.
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 feelings:
Okay since this was a birthday present, I started Reading it with all the love I have in my heart, plus I’ve been waiting it since a year ago. So the right word to say how I was feeling was: excited!
I’m not going to lie; I devoured this book just to read the infamous CHAPTER 62 as soon as possible. Hell yes! I was running through the chapters, I needed to read that one!
But my biggest surprise was that I loved every chapter, it doesn’t matter all the anxiety to reach chapter 62, I loved every word, every line of Unravel me.

The plot:
I loved more about the plot was Juliette thoughts, of course. Yes, I loved the action, the drama, the development, but I enjoyed Juliette’s ways to think, to see the world around her.
Those shitty thoughts she had sometimes. Those things that made her unique.
She’s lost, the feel alone, and yet, she always finds a way to see the good side of people. I think I never see any other character as good as her.
So, she had to control her power and the people at Omega Point was there to help her. Specially Kenji, who (to be honest) I never cared about. But this time, Tahereh gave us a plot where we can see how Juliette is growing and starting to feel stronger.

The main characters:
Juliette: I said enough about Juliette already.
Adam: Oh! Poor sweetest thing alive!! I love love love Adam, I always see him as that strong boy who saved Juliette, that sexy man who drives her crazy. It started this way. But while I read more and more pages, I saw a side of Adam that I never expected. He’s lost and he loves Juliette too much to give up on her, but life is a mess and always is screwing with the best personas.
Warner: “You destroy me” hot hot hot hot hot hot hot hot hottest man ever. What can I say about Warner that somebody ignores? You have to read Destroy me to realized how difficult is his life, how broken is him, and how much he’s just like Juliette. So please, do not hate him, he deserves a chance because he is as victim of his father as everyone else.
Kenji: He is so honest that you can't help but love him! Juliette really needed someone like him to make her see her reality.

The romance:
Before that burning amazing chapter 62, there was a pretty lovely love moment between Adam and Juliette that makes us melt.
The romance was the best a great factor in this book. If there is a thing that I really love about female POV is the passion that some of them put on that scenes. That’s why I love Mara Dyer, she is so passionate when she describes her feelings, that why I love Juliette. I love the manner the made that scenes swoon-worthy.

The ending:
Another “hell yes!” for the ending. That last line is memorable! I can’t wait to read book 3. I can’t wait to know what is going to happen.

Final thoughts:
Unravel me is one of the best books I’ve read. Mafi’s writing style makes Juliette’s voice remarkable and unique. Expect for great characters, a beautiful prose and utterly shocking moments that will stay with you until the day you read that last word.
