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?
I read the Shatter Me series back in 2015. They were on sale in the iBook store and I was looking for something to read. I knew they were quite popular but I haven’t heard much on the story. I pretty much dove into the series blind and it ended up being the best reads of the year. I’m pretty sure I flew through them. So it was no surprised when I learned that there was going to be a sequel to the series, it got me excited to read again, something that I haven’t felt in a while. I quickly went through the trilogy to remind myself of the pig lines of the plot and the world so that I wouldn’t be too lost when Restore Me would come out. Re-reading some parts of the book really reminded me why I loved the series and how beautiful Tahereh Mafi’s writing is.
Fairy Loot has done it again! The first time I ordered FL, I absolutely loved what I was sent and I knew that I was going to buy another box soon. When they announced their theme for July in their newsletter, I was intrigued. I don’t know many YA novels about pirates so I was curious to what kind of book they were going to sent. I’m not gonna lie, when they said that they were going to include an ARC, I was definitely on board. I’ve never received an ARC before so I’m still excited about that concept 😛.
In other news, I am extremely behind in my reading because I’ve been so obsessed with Pokemon Go. I’ve never taken so many walks outside, I don’t think anyone can imagine how this game has changed my life 😂. The addiction is real 😭.
I’ve recently ordered the March box from a new subscription box called Fairy Loot. It was waiting for me on my doorstep, this morning. I was so excited to open it because the theme for March was retellings and I know I love them. I really like the concept of a subscription box, when I open one I feel like it’s my birthday 😂
★★.5/5 | Goodreads
After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother-or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
This was the first book of 2016 that I read and I was plunging deep into a bad bad bad reading slump. As most of you probably know, the best way of getting out of a reading slump is by reading something of quick-paced, short, easy to read, something to get you back into the beat. I read this book back in January and I’m writing this review probably more than a month later because I got caught up with some stuff so I might not remember exactly everything about the storyline and I could omit some informations by mistake but I still wanted to write my thoughts about this book.
