Ultimately I thought it was a lot better than Shatter Me. I felt most of the characters progressed well throughout the novel but I definitely still feel like there is room to grow.
Unravel Me continues two weeks after Shatter Me concluded. Juliette how started her training and is discovering how much power she actually has and how to control it whilst still remaining herself and not turning into a monster. She’s having trouble fitting in and socialising with everyone and has found herself to be kind of ostracised.
I still enjoy the premise of the story and how its unfolded so far, its just a little bit too angsty for me. There is only so much I can take of Juliette agonizing over every single decision she makes in regards to Adam and then her guilt and remorse over her feelings for Warner. She is kind of just getting on my nerves at the moment. Adam as well not taking the news of his powers and its limits well and how he crumbles in on himself and won’t communicate. All of that side of the book annoyed me, however, the action and the politics and schemes were entertaining and interesting.
I like that we got a full backstory about Warner and his father and that plot twist was juicy and necessary at that time in the story! It gave us a lot of context in relation to Warner’s motives and why he acts and thinks the way he does. I’m kind of starting to like him to be quite honest. He’s unpredictable and unforgiving and he’s exciting to read as I don’t know what he is going to do next. I also like that he is so endearing and loving towards Juliette, I like the dynamic they have together and how different it contrasts to her and Adam’s relationship.
All in all, it was a pretty fast paced book that I finished very quickly. I am still intrigued and I definitely want to know what happens next. I just felt like it could of been a lot more high stakes and engaging than what it was.
⭐️3.5/5 stars I’m still enjoying the series, just hasn’t blown me away yet
