Waiting on Wednesday (29): Unravel Me

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. Visit Breaking The Spine to see more entries!


This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi
Release Date:  February 5th 2013 by HarperCollins
Format: Hardcover


 Goodreads 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



Reasons I want to read & own this book: 
1. The genre. I really am falling in love with young adult dystopian novels. Shatter Me (book 1) in this series was a mix of a post apocalyptic world with a dash of xmenish vibes because some characters have unique powers and are willing to risk it all to get away from the oppressive system/government in the story.

2. The villain. Warner. I just loved how complex he was. Beautiful on the outside, corrupt and tyrannical on the inside yet somewhat vulnerable with a hidden longing. When you hate and love a character, all at the same time, and feel confused as a reader on how to feel, you know you have a winning character in terms of depth.



What do you guys think? :)

  4. This is my choice for next week ;) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Shatter Me & I'm absolutely dying for Unravel Me. I am a little disappointed about the cover change. I love it, but I have to admit, I'm actually a fan of "girls-in-pretty-dresses" covers. Best pick this week! Thanks so much for sharing and for stopping by!

  9. I'm waiting on this one too! I'm disappointed in the cover, though. If I hadn't read the first book, I would never pick up Unravel Me based on the way it looks!
