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

** this is a (very) spoiler review **

My reaction to this book is literally just “what the hell just happend”.

I feel like Tahereh Mafi should just change this book’s title from Restsoemore Me to “Bombs, bombs everywhere”.

Because this is exactly what this book is. Bombs.

I don’t even think there’s any real plot-line in this book. Restore Me is literally a 400-page collection of Tahereh Mafi just dropping every Shatter Me bombs and twists ever. Boom, Juliette has a sister. Boom, Aaron has been unknowingly torturing this sister for about 16 years. Boom Juliette is adopted. Boom, Juliette’s entire life was The Truman Show. Boom, Juliette is a child of the Supreme Commander of Oceania. Boom, Warner and Juliette have met before as a child. Boom, WARNER AND JULIETTE GONNA HAVE SOME HAIR MAKEOVER –

That’s mainly the reason why I’m only giving this book 3.5 stars, the other being how I HATE when my ships fight. I hate when they’re like that, I want to see them together, not separated.

I’m not hating this book. I’m just saying it wasn’t the best, but definitely did something to the series story-line alright…(Mafi I think you need to chill down a bit with the bombing, you’re killing a little bit too many people with the heart attacks). If Mafi did this to keep us involved in the series, congratulations, because it worked. Some serious things are definitely going down in the Shatter Me universe, and I do not know if I can be ready for it…

My rating:
