shatter me #3
The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love.”
With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all.
Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.
The Shatter Me series 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. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end.

I don’t know what it is about this series. It’s just so damn satisfyingly enjoyable. Is it some amazing novel full of life metaphors and will change your life? No. But it’ll make you smile. It’ll make you laugh. It’ll make you swoon.
Keeping it short: Juliette has left Omega Point and is staying with Warner trying to take down the Establishment. Again, bland world-building, because it is a drab, grey world and we’re in I think one or two locations? Though I do feel like this is more of a character driven book. We go through a lot of character development in this one after last books’ regression.
What made me actually love this book was Juliette. If you thought she could never come back the where she was in Unravel Me, BE PREPARED TO BE PROVEN WRONG. She found her self worth (through love… yikes) and was taking none if Adam’s sh*t. It was glorious. However, the relationship progression between her and Warner did take a while because of again, last books’ events. But it’s okay because-
“I like the way I feel about myself when I’m with him.” I say quietly. “Warner thinks I’m strong and smart and capable and he actually values my opinion. He makes me feel like his equal–like I can accomplish just as much as he can, and more. And if I do something incredible, he’s not even surprised. He expects it. He doesn’t treat me like I’m some fragile little girl who needs to be protected all the time.”
They are amazing together. And that scene? You know… that scene? I don’t know if this scene or Unravel Me’s scene was better. No idea. At all.
My only issue (besides finding your self worth through love) that made this book a four star was that ending. It came out of nowhere and was the most ridiculous thing I’ve read in a while. I can’t describe it. It was like the movie Wonder Woman- at the end, she kind of becomes invincible and cannot be hit and is amazing and all powerful… Bullsh*t. However, we are getting 3 more books (yay 😀 ) so maybe this will be explained? Overall, this was borderline a guilty pleasure read series and I can’t wait for more.
