#3 - Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
Unravel Me - Tahereh Mafi

This is my second read of this book and I totally fell in love again with it. Tahereh Mafi has such a unique way with words I totally adored it. I decided to mark the pages with beautiful quotes but I had to stop because I did it with every single page (if you follow me on Instagram, you know I'm all about Unravel Me quotes these days). Mafi's writing style is quite different from what I usually read and I just loved it.

 

The story was interesting as well, but it is definitely not what captivated me most about the book. I remember reading it the first time and starting to kind of like Warner a bit and starting disliking Adam (a lot). Now, it’s just all about Warner (I mean, come on, he’s such an amazing sexy villain).

 

I also remember disliking Juliette a lot. Yes, she is annoying and just complaining all the time, but I have to admit I think I’ll definitely be like her if I was in her shoes. She is also determined to help those she loves, even if she sometimes makes really bad decisions, her intentions are true. I admire her a lot now and I can’t wait to read more about her in the next trilogy.

 

I’ll re-read Ignite Me next month and I’m so excited about what is to come!! I’m so happy I decided to re-read this series, it’s a great way to start 2018!

Unravel
Unravel - B.V. Holt Unravel - B.V. Holt There are some (very minor) spoilers in this review, but those are not really spoilery enough to spoil the reading experience, in my opinion. Just a FYI.

So. This one was a bit of a rollercoaster for me.

John is one cynic, mysogynistic, misanthropic, homophobic, conceited piece of shit--totally full of himself, hates everybody, thinks everybody is below him. And I hated him.
But, oddly enough, I grew to love to hate him. Figure. (Well, maybe not that odd considering that Filth--with James McAvoy's performance as Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson--is one of my favourite films ever, so there's that.)

So, there's me, starting to seriously love the book, intrigued beyond words about John and Goodrich strange dance around each other. John detesting him as the new member of his division, but being strangely drawn to him at the same time, not really knowing why. Him "bullying" (not quite) Goodrich in a way that practically amounts to them pulling pigtails. It was fun. It was well done. Really.

And then, at around 66% it all went to hell. It seemed like the author either wanted to A. come to an end with the story due to losing interest in their own novel or B. didn't know how to write his characters finally getting/being together. Because all of a sudden John makes a total 180° change and suddenly he's sweet and tame like a kitten. Flirtatious. Sugary, even. Talks about love. (When he, before, was more than contemptuous of both the idea/sentiment and people falling for it.) Having no problem that the object of his loving is, on top of that, a man. (A Man! It was made quite clear that men loving, even just fucking, other men was more than a weakness, was absurd, was despicable.) Now, though, it is not a problem at all. Riiiiiiiight.

Oh, and then, on the last couple of pages of the book, he does it again. Does something totally against his character (or that what the reader was made to believe was his character in the first 2/3 of the book). He suddenly recognises the error of his ways, grows a conscience, gains a moral compass and deems himself not worthy of Goodrich. Where the bloody hell did that come from? I certainly have no idea. (But don't despair, that is a very short development in the very end and resolved just as quickly. There's a HEA, don't fret.)

Well, this was a solid 4 (maybe even 4.5) star read for the first 2/3 of the book. It went downhill from there. Rapidly. I find myself incapable of rewarding more than 3 stars due to that reason.

Warner is the only saving grace with this book. I hate how Juliette was treating him & I hate how she kept leading him on. The love triangle is unnecessary, Juliette just needs to make a decision which she's not capable of doing. I just don't like her. I'm so disappointed that I'm not liking this book series that's been so hyped up.

Reading progress update: I've read 54 out of 461 pages.
By Tahereh Mafi - Unravel Me (Shatter Me) (12.1.2013) - Tahereh Mafi

Hmm.....this series is like X-Men. Juliette is Rogue, Castle is Professor Xavier, Omega Point is the mutant school he runs, while they all hone their skills while hiding from the outside.
