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. (Goodreads)

I couldn't be more satisfied with how this series wrapped up. I really have to say, Tahereh Mafi's writing is stunning, so poetic and beautiful, I couldn't get enough. Juliette really grew into a strong awesome woman by the end of these books, she started off so weak and whiney and by the end she was just such an inspiration. I loved Warner's story line in this book and he is one of my new top book boyfriends!! Adam on the other hand... HATE HIM, every time he spoke I cringed he was the most annoying character Ive read in a long time. Kenji is also one of my new all time favourite characters, I don't think I've ever loved a side character this much before. He reminded me so much of my best friend and I just love him to death, he adds such a perfect dynamic to the series.

Overall I absolutely loved this book and this series as a whole. I highly recommend you pick it up!!

Juliette is pretty Kick Ass!
This one is for ADAM... ugh He is the worst!
Warner and Juliette... <3

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. (Goodreads)
 Oh I loved this book! 

I was a bit sceptical coming into this book because the first book in the series didn't really hook me, I thought it was okay, but nothing special. This second book however has completely turned me around, I mean wow! Tahereh's writing was so beautiful and poetic and I couldn't put it down! I was so glad to have more Warner in this book and the development of both his character and Juliette's character was amazing. I'm still no fan of Adam, sometimes I wish he would just go away!! ha This book had everything you could ask for, love, action, and adventure! I hope someone turns these books into movies! I also surprising love they way Warner calls Juliette Love, I think its SO adorable!!

Overall I thought this was an amazing second book to this trilogy. I cannot wait to read the third book and see how this all wraps up! TEAM WARNER!!

Poor Juliette

In this sequel to the bestselling fantasy thriller, Angelfall, the survivors of the angel apocalypse begin to scrape back together what's left of the modern world.

When a group of people capture Penryn's sister Paige, thinking she's a monster, the situation ends in a massacre. Paige disappears. Humans are terrified. Mom is heartbroken.

Penryn drives through the streets of San Francisco looking for Paige. Why are the streets so empty? Where is everybody? Her search leads her into the heart of the angels' secret plans where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go.

Meanwhile, Raffe hunts for his wings. Without them, he can't rejoin the angels, can't take his rightful place as one of their leaders. When faced with recapturing his wings or helping Penryn survive, which will he choose? (Goodreads)

I really should have waited to read this closer to the release date of the next book! This just left me wanting more! The story picked up right where it left off in book one and it was full steam ahead! I was hooked from page one! I absolutely love Penryn as a main character, she is so brave and has a great sense of humour. Her relationship with Raffe is fantastic and I love the chemistry between the two. 

If you haven't picked up Angelfall yet I hight recommend you do! This is going to be a GREAT series!

Everyone in this world is like....
