Release Date: February 5th/13!!!
Publisher: HarperTeen

Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads:
tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
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 Thoughts:

Wow, I thought Shatter Me was epic, Unravel Me blew it out of the water!

Juliette continues to be one of my favourite YA heroines and she faces a whole new set of struggles in Unravel Me, with her powers and the men in her life.

Unravel Me, basically picks up where Shatter Me left off, Juliette and Adam have joined the rebel resistance and our currently staying at the Omega Point Headquarters, where they attempt to master their skills "powers". Although I felt that this plot point resembled the X-men Academy, Mafi does a great job of putting her own unique spin on the mutant "Super Power" theme. Of course her ability to write amazing metaphors three dimensional characters, doesn't hurt either. We're introduced to a whole new batch of rebels and it was nice to see Juliette make some actual friends!

My heart broke for Adam and Juliette in this instalment. Adam has been keeping a VERY important secret from Juliette, that has some serious consequences their relationship. But not to fear, Juliette always has Warner waiting on the sidelines. Yes, that's right, Warner is back, and he plays a very important role in Unravel Me, we actually get to see a whole different side to him that may have some Adam fans switching sides haha. I do have one complaint about the men in this instalment and that's that I wish Adam was written in more. We were given so many great Juliette/Adam scenes in Shatter Me, and don't get me wrong, there's quite a few good ones in Unravel Me, I guess I just can never get enough Adam haha. 

There's also a MAJOR plot twist regarding Adam and Warner, I won't say what but it's a good one!

Along with a great cast of characters, Mafi also does a great job of blending suspenseful action into Unravel Me- they are preparing for a war after all. 

And that ending! Why Mafi, why? I need book #3 yesterday!!!

If you loved Shatter Me you're guaranteed to love Unravel Me!

Happy Reading!!!
