Review: Unravel Me, by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me #2)

Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)Amid all sorts of shenanigans, I really liked Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi,  the first book in the Shatter Me series, and was excited for Unravel Me to land on my Nook!

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).

Before I even started, I had heard cries of support for Team Adam, as well as Team Warner (though debated if that even was a know who you are...)

Originality: 6- though there were some surprises in this story, it was mostly lovey dovey romance.  But the world has been built, super powers discovered, now we are at war, so I am willing to look this over.

Absurdity: 5- eh, yeah this is totally absurd, especially Juliette's wishy-washy attitude towards Adam.  Didn't we learn anything from when Edward left Bella in book 2 of Twilight? Not helping anyone. 

Bella, wallowing in the dirt when Edward left "to protect her"
Level of Paranormal Romance: 9.  So many levels of teen angst and super powers, it is quite similar to X-Men in a lot of ways.  O Adam, I love you.  Warner, you are a handsome, disturbed, but creepy.  What is Juliette THINKING?
Level of Harry Potterness: 5. While with the first book I loved the writing style, it wasn't as endearing this time, but none the less I was swept up in the story and am looking forward to Juliette toughening up a bit and making things happen in the final book.
