Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi



Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this has to be one of my all time favorite Novellas (the .5's of series). I love Tahereh Mafi's writing so I decided I needed to add my 2 cents of this wonderful short story of Warner.

Oh Warner.. How I am so drawn to you. The bad boy of all bad boys! Broken, so broken and yet so unbelievably attractive. This book definitely changed my view on poor Warner. I read this before Unravel me so I went in with a whole new perspective since I finished Shatter Me.

Mafi is a genius.. Have I said that before? YES! Her talent far exceeds anything I have read in a long time. Her writing style is phenomenal, artistic, beautifully mastered. I can't say enough about it! Can you tell?

If you have read Shatter Me, this Novella is worth the quick read. It might change your whole idea of Warner!

 “She is a soft, deadly creature. Kind and timid and terrifying. She's completely out of control and has no idea what she's capable of. And even though she hates me, I can't help but be fascinated by her. I'm enchanted by her pretend-innocence; jealous, even, of the power she wields so unwittingly. I want so much to be a part of her world. I want to know what it's like to be in her mind, to feel what she feels. It seems a tremendous weight to carry.
And now she's out there, somewhere, unleashed on society.
What a beautiful disaster.”

Tahereh Mafi, Destroy Me

That traitorous bastard. The idiot who thinks he's won himself a pretty girl. He has no idea who she is. No idea what she'd about to become. And if he thinks he's even remotely suited to match her, he's even more of an idiot than I gave him credit for.”

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi



Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Summary:
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.



Oh my oh my! Mafi's writing makes my heart and breathing speed up. I could read her words over and over and never get tired of them. Not to mention her creative mind. This book goes everywhere except where I expected it to go. Shocking twists and turns all throughout the book.

My only complaint was Juliets attitude in the beginning, which seemed to drag a little. She got lost in her self pity and doubt....But I was excited to get a little more Kenji. Loved his happy self.

There really isn't anymore I can say without spoiling, so I will just leave you some great quotes. 

“Hope.

It's like a drop of honey, a field of tulips blooming in the springtime. It's a fresh rain, a whispered promise, a cloudless sky, the perfect punctuation mark at the end of a sentence. And it's the only thing in the world keeping me afloat.”
― Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me


“He's looking so deeply into my eyes that I'm surprised I haven't buckled under the intensity and I realize then, right in this moment I realize that everything about him is intense. Nothing about him is manageable or easy to compartmentalize. He's too much. Everything about him is too much. His emotions, his actions, his anger, his aggression. His love.”
― Tahereh Mafi, Unravel Me
