Ignite Me

Ignite Me - Tahereh Mafi "Because the more I discover about him, the fewer excuses I have to push him away. He's unraveling before me, becoming something entirely different; terrifying me in a way I never could've expected.
And all I can think is not now."

Have you ever experienced having your heart shred into pieces? Well, I certainly did while reading this one. Tahereh Mafi's final installment of the Shatter Me Series is definitely a must-read. It will literally leave you begging for more.

I love how the author wrote the series as a whole. How she managed to channel Juliette's character through the readers. I think that's one of the greatest capabilities an author could have. Juliette's emotions are literally radiating off the pages. I even picked up her confusion between Adam and Warner.

Speaking of Adam and Warner, I'm really on Team Adam but reading this book (and the Unravel Me) gave me a completely different perspective regarding Warner and his life. It made me hate myself because, like Juliette, I'm denying myself from the fact that I really really like Warner's character. There goes Warner's character development (HURRAY AGAIN FOR TAHEREH!!). Seriously, how can you hate that guy? He just wanted to get back to his father because of what happened to his life and his mother's life. Okay, enough for Warner, let's go to Adam.

Okay, sorry about that. I just can't believe that Adam would act like that (you really have to read the book in order to understand where this is coming from, so you better grab this book). In a way, Adam got his resolution from Juliette and also with the Warner-being-his-brother situation.

Kenji has become a favorite of mine. I wish I had a friend like him (Although, I do have a friend named Kenji). I love his sense of humour and the way he copes up with Juliette's emotions, unlike other guys who backs out at the sound of a crying girl. I also liked how the author gave him more exposure in the novel.

Let's get back to Juliette. I also loved her character development. I loved that she finally had the guts to face reality and the newfound confidence of her character is really inspiring. Even with the way that she came clean with her feelings for Adam and Warner, I wish I had her guts (and superpowers).

To people who are looking for novels with heroines, I would gladly recommend you this series. It's a great summer read. :)

Also, I would like to thank Tahereh Mafi for creating these novels. I love you from the bottom of my heart (and I wish I saw you last April)!
