[ Read Online Shatter Me Ú menage PDF ] by Tahereh Mafi ☆ You can find the full review andabout this book on my blog This was somethingand I liked it.
Okay so the first 200 pages were like the dullest,cheesiest romance bullshit,like the level of cheesiness was above normal,and you know how I feel about that.
I sometimes thought to quit,but god,I am glad I didn t.
You know when you loose all the hope but then one things clings and you see the light again Omega Point was that for me.
Like my thoughts about this book changed 100 percent.
There are 3 things that I truly cherish in life 1.
Girls in tight outfits, 2.
Dragons, 3.
Superpowers and that s what I got in the last 50 pages and it is enough for me,enough to continue with the series.
I don t know why but I got a vibe of fantastic 4,maybe with Wilson hugging himself twice if you know what I mean.
One thing I can t wrap my mind of,one things I can t get is the hype for Warner.
He is like the worst character in the book ,he is like Joffrey from Game of Thrones for me and if you know me just a little you would know how much I truly deeply hate him and I am hoping he gets killed.
But absolutely get the hype for Kenji,like that guy is a legend.
I feel like we are already buddies.
Such a cool humor,got me laughing out loud.
In the other hand Juliette,I don t know why but I got the feeling like I remember her from somewhere.
I like her like a lot,she cries much,and she literally has a million chances to kill people she wants to kill but doesn t,but god she is beautiful.
I don t know some people are just beautiful,now in what they look,not in what they say,just in what they are,and she was beautiful to me that way.
I will definitely continue the series.
I like the plot,and now with superpowers it is a million times better.
I recommend this book to every reader out there,it has a different writing style,some call it beautiful and unique,and I can t disagree,it s just that I didn t find it beautiful.
It was annyoing like hell,especially at the beginnings.
I know I will get a bunch of replies for not liking Warner,but seriously people what s there to like I deserve a medal for finishing this book.
Like, the Olympic gold medal in the Anti DNF Games, people Rant Ahead It took me three months to finish this book.
THREE Not 3, Miss Mafi Now, normally, I would have tossed this book out the window like an overwrought Silver Linings Playbook Bradley Cooper, being that I AM the queen of the heartless page 15 DNF however, I find that I have a harder time DNFing something when I am 1 Reading a physical copy as opposed to a digital copy, and 2 When I already OWN books two and three and am hoping to FUCK I didn t waste my money That said, this book annoyed me on several different levels 1 Juliette s power or glitch or whatever the hell it is, is never fully explained in detail It s skirted around in a mass of overwrought metaphors and complete bullshit 2 Said overwrought metaphors.
3 The writing itself in general Despite having a degree in English and Literature, I am usually pretty easygoing about typos and grammar, especially when it comes to self published stuff I mean just LOOK at the slang and vernacular I use in my reviews I am NOT a hard ass about this stuff HOWEVER.
When I am holding a professionally published, FINISHED copy of a mass produced book and it contains strikeouts, sentences starting in lowercase letters, and numbers one through ten incorrectly placed in number form, e.
, Juliette has 2 hands and 0 1 brain, my inner grammar maven s granny panties get twisted so far up her ass, it s impossible to focus I mean, I GET that this was all a stylistic choice, etc That the sporadic, all over the place, SHITTY sentence structure was supposed to reflect Juliette s instability, or whatever the fuck it was supposed to reflect, but I just can t get behind starting a sentence with 4, my friends Add to that the insta love between Juliette and Adam and the spindly world building of a completely unclear and poorly wrought dystopian society and you have a wreck of a book that merely has a pretty cover Now I am left with the crushing decision of whether or not I try book two since I, like an idiot, already bought it or if I just march the whole trilogy down to my favorite used book store and hope the fact that this series is about to have a new book published gets me top dollar Decisions, decisions.
I Have A CurseI Have A GiftI Am A MonsterI M Than HumanMy Touch Is LethalMy Touch Is PowerI Am Their WeaponI Will Fight BackJuliette Hasn T Touched Anyone In ExactlyDaysThe Last Time She Did, It Was An Accident, But The Reestablishment Locked Her Up For Murder No One Knows Why Juliette S Touch Is Fatal As Long As She Doesn T Hurt Anyone Else, No One Really Cares The World Is Too Busy Crumbling To Pieces To Pay Attention To AYear Old Girl Diseases Are Destroying The Population, Food Is Hard To Find, Birds Don T Fly Any, And The Clouds Are The Wrong ColorThe Reestablishment Said Their Way Was The Only Way To Fix Things, So They Threw Juliette In A Cell Now So Many People Are Dead That The Survivors Are Whispering War And The Reestablishment Has Changed Its Mind Maybe Juliette Is Than A Tortured Soul Stuffed Into A Poisonous Body Maybe She S Exactly What They Need Right NowJuliette Has To Make A Choice Be A Weapon Or Be A Warrior November 2017I picked this back up on a whim because I ve been dealing with anxiety lately and wanted to return to something comforting, so I decided to annotate one of my paperback copies And I gotta say, It s weird returning to book one Ignite Me is my favorite book of all time, and rereading that book is such an immersive experience that I always come out of feeling empowered This book, on the other hand, holds such a special place in my heart because it s so relatable that it hurts From Juliette s panic to her awkwardness to her resilience to the writing style, everything just hurts so good There s parts of me that I see in Juliette, and there s parts of Juliette that I wish I could be better at It s just such a refreshing and inspirational book to read because it s about someone who has been handed the shittiest circumstances and still looks for the best in others, perseveres, and demands what s right for her It s about learning to trust and realizing your worth and giving people second chances FUCK i m about to cry typing this review I love Juliette so much and I love Tahereh evenfor sharing a story that touches the deepest corners of my heart It s truly a life changing book for me I ve always read this as the story of a sad, self conscious, self loathing girl learning to see past obstacles to find love in herself and to let others in however, i haven t read this since summer 2016, so my experience of reading this after the election other stressful political happenings opened my eyes to a completely new underside of the story It had always been visible to me but was it never at the forefront, but this time I noticed it so vividly this is also the story about a deeply hurt and angry girl who wants justice People always criticize Juliette for being weak and annoying, especially in Unravel Me, but when she pushes back against her fear and stands up for herself, it s jaw dropping I envy her ability to know what s best for her and hold others happiness and safety above her own even though she s gone through so much turmoil and deserves to be the person being looked out for I used to think that Juliette gets suddenly really strong in Ignite Me, but reading this closely just showed how ready she was for that transformation In my annotated editions, I use blue highlighter to mark parts where Juliette is really badass, and I didn t expect to use it a ton in this one, but it s everywhere Juliette is a pure and fearless motherfucker Even in book one she has powerful quotes like I m not yours to want, and it challenges all the ideas Warner tries to install into her head.
Which is where this book gets slippery It s getting really, really difficult for me to reconcile Warner s actions in book one I ve definitely had others question how I ship Juliette with Warner after all he s put Juliette through in this book, and it s a valid concern Every time I think about this book, i m just kinda like hahaha problematic warner but whatever But theI reread, especially after ignite me came out, and ESPECIALLY during this particular reread, thequestions I have that I can only hope will now be explained in restore me Don t get me wrong, this book still means so much to me because of juliette, but there s no possible way for me to read this book with the mindset omg i love warner because he s literally the villain and he does and says so many problematic, manipulative things Honestly, I don t think it s fair to justify everything Warner does While rereading this I was actually shocked at the amount of nasty things he says to her, that I obviously must have forgotten or blocked from my memory Things like telling her she ll be miserable if she leaves him because no one else will want her, calling her a monster, professing his love for her even when she s clearly uncomfortable In Unravel Me and Ignite Me he explains why he did these things and says that he regrets doing it, but it seems to go so far in this book I almost theorize that Tahereh must have written warner in book 1 to continue being a villain throughout the series, but there s way too many threads that suggest otherwise ie the introduction of the angst behind warner s mom, the fact that she felt electricity during their kiss, etc I feel like I could write an essay about this topic the inconsistencies of Warner s personality, and whether or not it s justifiable to forgive him for his misjudgments of Juliette It s just so strange to me that Adam Kenji can say Warner is a lot of things, but he s not stupid, and yet Warner misreads her SO horribly I mean, in the scene that he corners her and kisses her, he s literally saying I want you to choose me and I love you and later admits that he thought she was into it, EVEN THOUGH she literally said You re sick you re a monster etc and physically tried to punch him before he pinned her to the wall If he s so smart, then why couldn t he tell that every time he talks to her, she s afraid and disgusted Is it really that easy to mistake fear for excitement Disgust for nerousness His behavior is so coercive and manipulative, and even though I know he was just trying to get a reaction out of her so that she would abandon her fear and finally use her power, there s not nearly enough of an apology as I would expect for things of this magnitude The reason why I don t consider Warner an outright misogynist is an incredibly nuanced and long discussion, but the difference between him and, say, a Colleen Hoover character is that while Warner is saying and doing problematic things, he is also being cast in a problematic light He is literally the villain of this story for putting her in those situations Had Juliette been like omg he s pinning me against a wall and threatening me, he s so dominating 3 then that would a lotconcerning But I m gonna have to reread Unravel Me as well to refresh my memory on how Warner addresses these actions and words because I really don t think he apologized or explained himself well enough, and I think it s totally valid for Juliette to absolutely roast him in Restore Me for treating her so shittily My outrage about it is fresh though, and maybe Juliette comes to terms with his actions in a later book that I ve forgotten about.
Also Drag me, but Adam doesn t get enough credit in this book I know we all love to shit on him myself included for the direction he goes in Ignite Me, but his place in her journey of self discovery is vital Imagine this book without Adam, without that glimmer of hope and self love that he installs in her He s the first person to reassure her of herself and humanize her Sure, they re not right for each other in the end, but it s not okay to dismiss their entire relationship as bullshit, because he DID help her see herself as something other than a monster, and I can t even imagine what this series would have been like if it were only Juliette brooding alone in her room, dreading Warner, stuck there until Warner was forced to tell her the truth about his mom or until Anderson showed up to ask what was taking so long Idk There s so many important quotes from Adam in this book Sometimes it falls into the type of narrative that feels like ugghhhh, she needed a boy to fix her, but in reality, sometimes your friends have your back and reassure you of your worth, and sometimes your friends arethan your friends I could make a LIST of all the positive things Adam said to Juliette in this book that caused her confidence to sky rocket, whereas almost everything Warner said installed panic and fear in her So clearly I have conflicting feelings, but none of them intercede with the fact that I still cannot get over how much I adore this story Sure, Warner sucks and I unironically wrote ew by half the things he says to her in this book, but watching Juliette s transformation and relating to her insecurities and thought process, as well as remembering how much I adored this book as a young teen, it s always going to be a priceless experience to me.
July 2016I think this is my fourth or fifth time rereading it I didn t plan to but my aunt showed interest in reading it and I jokingly offered to read it out loud to her, and she said yes Thus, I proceeded to read this entire book out loud to her And it was worth it.
And what can I say I love this book I fucking love Juliette Reading it out loud made me slightlyaware of how lame her stream of consciousness can sound, and how the metaphors become exhausting after a while But I ve sort of accepted that book one is always going to be slightly uncomfortable to reread just because of the fact that so much has changed by book 3 that this is almost cringe worthy There s so much set up for world building that never occurs Honestly this book isof a 3 star rating, but I can t bring myself to lower it It was due for a reread since it had been just about two years, and, like always, I noted several things that I had missed or forgotten since I read it last August 2015I m not quite sure why i ve never uploaded a review on goodreads for this book I mean, I feel like it kind of goes without saying how I feel about it but ya know This is my favorite series If you re sick of dystopian and never want to read one ever again, make an exception for this one Ignore the fact that the entire fandom and myself has probably majorly spoiled you But this book Holy shit The writing YES The characters YES The plot YES The range of emotions YES I could tell you the things wrong with it, but no book is perfect But if you want a book with characters that you will not be able to get out of your head and with a plot that will have you reading an entire trilogy in one sitting, this book is your friend reread July 2014 Shat ter Me, oth er wise known as When Cre ative Writ ing Class Goes Wrong.
I am all for exper i men tal writ ing, for stretch ing your abil i ties and try ing to find fresh ways to express ideas Occa sion ally you end up with genius, but most of the time you result in pre ten tious, awk ward prose that stick in the prover bial craw of read ers This book is that writ ing There are plenty of exam ples that I can give as evi dence but I shall stick with two rel a tively short ones His eyes scan the sil hou ette of my struc ture and the slow motion makes my heart race I catch the rose petals as they fall from my cheeks, as they float around the frame of my body, as they cover me in some thing that feels like the absence of courage The absence of courage Are you fuck ing kid ding me We have a word for that I believe that is almost the dic tio nary def i n i tion of the word cow ard I would explain what was wrong with the rest of the para graph too but I want to keep this review to a 10,000 word the sis at max I always won der about raindrops.
I won der about how they re always falling down, trip ping over their own feet, break ing their legs and for get ting their para chutes as they tum ble right out of the sky toward an uncer tain end right.
I get, artis ti cally, that Mafi wanted to expose her read ers to the mind of a girl whose san ity is frag ile and ques tion able, and that she s try ing to show this through the prose I don t think the effect works or is done par tic u larly well I think the work ings of a trou bled mind would result inthan bad analo gies and a bunch of num bers Despite the fact that Juliette s back story and premise is inter est ing, we still end up with the same mun dane, cookie cutter hero ine that can be seen in the vast major ity of Young Adult lit er a ture The only thing insane about this novel is how pre dictable and trite it is It would not be com pletely unrea son able to ques tion my san ity in regards to read ing Young Adult novels.
When are pop u lar young adult authors going to pro videto the char ac ter i za tion of their main pro tag o nists than Irre sistible, unique out sider, in love with a guy Can t male pro tag o nists have other qual i ties than in love with main char ac ter, hot, tragic back story to illicit exces sive brooding The entire premise of Shat ter Me promised some thing dif fer ent and new Yet we still end up with the same bland old fare.
The plot and pac ing is awk ward and cum ber some Even when sit u a tions are sup posed to be tense, there is a sense of bore dom and pre dictabil ity I feel sad that this is yet again, another dis ap point ing dystopian Young Adult novel that will join its sis ters in the Mediocre Hall of I Can t Be Stuffed.
But, if you do decide to visit, at least you get a free shirt One last thing view spoiler the end ing That pissed me off the most Xavier s school for Mutants in Rebel lion of the Oppres sive Dystopian R gime FML And the suit, using that word loosely, that they pro vide for her at the end Yeah, that s great Doesn t EVERY woman look at this suit and just say to them selves, Yes I can t wait to wear this This doesn t objec tify me as a woman, degrade me as a human being and make an embar rass ment out of every one involved Not At All.
It s like the mutant ver sion of fan tasy armour for women And as we all know, Women s armour sucks hide spoiler Juliette describing Adam s eyes perfect shade of cobalt, blue like a blossoming bruise, clear and deep and decided careful, curious 2 buckets of rainwater deep, fresh, clear blue and bottomless like the deepest part of the ocean tight as tight as his fists as tight as the strain in his arms bottomless blue blue blue blue midnight moment filled with memories, the only windows into my world always shining the darkness two pools of perfection, open, honest, humble a shade of blue in a midnight sky Juliette describing Adam s gaze like a white hot poker pressed against my skin touching every inch of my body locked into mine is fixed on me calm, unflappable 2 buckets of river water at midnight I d like to cry into his eyes I ve never been a purple prose type of girl A book that will forever remain nameless spoke of leaking wombs and well it made me shiver It also introduced me to the entire concept of purple prose Prose can be beautiful I ve read plenty of books where the writing touches me deeply and the author is simply writing about the sunset, or a walk in the park, or the plight of the poor If the author is able to actually tell a story without distracting the reader with the prose, I m all for it That is not the case with Shatter Me Shatter Me was like my first attempt at cooking a turkey over done It was like climbing Mount Everest tiring, watching kids play outside your window while you are taking a test distracting, and my dog throwing his bone at me silly At some point, I was drowning, desperately searching for land overwhelmed by the prose and eager for the story And don t get me started about the crossing out of passages in the book It was irritating, annoying stupid a cheap trick dumb, something I did not enjoy Overall I won t read the next book.
I might read the next book if I get a free copy.
I m curious to see where the author can go since it is clear that she can write I think someone needed to put a leash on the over playful puppy edit her prose down to acontrollable level so that people could enjoy the story rather than cringe with every every every regurgitation eruption spewing listen you need to stop crossing me off or I m gonna sick some nasty virus on your ass incident of prose.
I always wonder about raindrops.
I wonder about how they re always falling down, tripping over their own feet, breaking their legs and forgetting their parachutes as they tumble right out of the sky toward an uncertain end It s like someone is emptying their pockets over the earth and doesn t seem to care where the contents fall, doesn t seem to care that the raindrops burst when they hit the ground, that they shatter when they fall to the floor, that people curse the days the drops dare to tap on their doors.
Let me translate what Mafi was trying to say It was raining This is one of, if not THE major problem of Shatter Me she tries too hard to be clever and poetic and the story gets muddied along the way.
I apologize for not goingin depth with this review, but I read this book over three months ago now and all I remember is that I hated it and it was incredibly poorly written I think my status updates should show this pretty clearly, but to make this easier to see, I ve decided to write this somewhat brief review and sort through a few of my updates as well.
A device Mafi chooses to use early on is crossing striking out the words that crazy Juliette is really thinking As the story goes on this device gets used less and less and so it feelslike Mafi just used it in the beginning for fun and to make her book look different from the rest of the young adult books out there, which, unfortunately, it is NOT, especially when you get to the romance And that is what this story is a romance, and a disgustingly sappy one at that I don t think you ll be able to believe these favorite quotes of mine until you read them for yourself I d like to cry into his eyes His body presses closer and I realize I m paying attention to nothing but the dandelions blowing wishes in my lungs I m suddenly desperate to drink in every drop of his being, desperate to savor every moment I ve never known before I suddenly worry that there s an expiration date on this phenomenon.
The possibility of losing himThe possibility of losing himThe possibility of losing him is 100 years of solitude I don t want to imagine.
Realization is a pendulum the size of the moon It won t stop slamming into me His heart is racing so fast I can t distinguish it from my own It s 5,000 degrees in the air between us I ve run out of words My pockets are full of letters I can t string together I want to fall asleep to the sound of his heart beating in the atmosphere His eyes are a midnight moment filled with memories, the only windows into my world My heart fails for a moment.
There are 400 cotton balls caught in my windpipe James and Adam glance back at me and I melt into pink Play Doh I m up.
They found us is the only thing I can think of My stomach is a flimsy crepe, my heart a raging woodpecker, my blood a river of anxiety It s raining today The sky is weeping for us His lips are spelling secrets and my ears are spilling ink, staining my skin with his stories The sun is revolving around the moon when he responds I offer him a smile Try to keep my organs from falling out Hope the holes in my head aren t showing My mouth is sitting on my kneecaps My neck snaps up to meet his dark eyes, his smooth voice, silky and strong My jaw is dangling from my shoelace I m blushing through my bones Adam pulls back just a tiny bit Kisses my bottom lip Bites it for just a second His skin is 100 degrees hotter than it was a moment ago His lips are pressed against my neck and my hands are on a journey down his upper body and I m wondering why there are so many freight trains in my heart, why his chest is a broken harmonica And that, my friends, is that I thought it was awful Even if I didn t think the writing was trite and overwrought, later on it really starts to feel like she s borrowing heavily from the X Men mythos even though she claims she s never even seen the movies If you read the few quotes I ve listed above and they re not your cup of tea, I d say skip this one and try something else Or maybe watch one of the X Men movies instead you ll get a much better portrayal of Rogue and a steamier love story Mmm Wolverine.

I always wonder about raindrops.
I wonder about how they re always falling down, tripping over their own feet, breaking their legs and forgetting their parachutes as they tumble right out of the sky toward an uncertain end It s like someone is emptying their pockets over the earth and doesn t seem to care where the contents fall, doesn t seem to care that the raindrops burst when they hit the ground, that they shatter when they fall to the floor, that people curse the days the drops dare to tap on their doors.
I am a raindrop.
My parents emptied their pockets of me and left me to evaporate on a concrete slabHere lies Steph Sinclair, slaughtered by metaphors raindrops.
I know many found this book to have a very unique writing style, but I can t help but think how terrible and awkwardly written it was The writing Mafi s style of writing varies Let me categorize.
This doesn t even make sense writing I catch the rose petals as they fall from my cheeks, as they float around the frame of my body, as they cover me in something that feels like the absence of courage He says it with a small smile the size of Jupiter I m picturing this in my head and it s not pretty writing Every organ in my body falls to the ground There are 400 cotton balls caught in my windpipe My mouth is sitting on my kneecaps My jaw is dangling from my shoelace My stomach drops onto my knees I blush through my bones My spine is conducting enough electricity to power a city Repetition gone wrong writing I blush I blush His lips part Close I blush I blush His lips part Close I blush I blush His lips part Close Really just shit writing in general writing I am an old creaky staircase when I wake up Warner thinks Adam is a cardboard cutout of vanilla regurgitations Do I need to explain how shitty this writing is And yes, before people yell at me and tell me that I don t understand metaphors, I do But the excessive use of them and just metaphors themselves are just not my thing The characters Juliette does nothing but sulk around, wait for death, and whine I saw no potential of her growing.
Adam is just thereWarner is just Idk.
I must admit that a few times, he had potential to be a good character I thought he was the only character that brought something He made me cringe He made me angry, made me feel uncomfortable He was getting there At least then I felt like he had some sort of purpose in this story Then he would say something so cheesy, so inconsistent with his character, and just downright stupid that I lost all hope in him.
Kenji was just fucking annoying The plot Besides Juliette s constant whining and lameness and the cringeworthy romances, this story was just a sadder and lamer version of X Men It had too many X Men vibes going on On the whole Mafi, if you wanted to capture me with I m just trying way too hard to sound cool unique prose, thinking that if you repeated phrases fifty times every once in a while, had painful metaphors, and an unnecessary abundance of irritating striking texts, then reads acknowledgments You ve filled my days with shooting stars, and one day I will pluck the moon from the sky and put it in your mailbox.
She speaks like that in real life MY PRECIOUS IS NOW SIGNED BY TAHEREH I can die of happiness now 3 In case y all didn t know, not only was this book optioned by Warner Bros as a movie, it has now been optioned as a TV SHOW BY ABC STUDIOS with Tahereh as a producer This better happen I am not joking I am tired of great books cough, cough The Song of the Lioness Quartet and The Dust Lands Trilogy Blood Red Road Rebel Heart Raging Star not becoming movies or TV shows after they are optioned Dear book gods and I know you exist because you inspired Tahereh to write this series , make this real Yes, I know TV movies don t always make great adaptations and the books are 99.
9% of the time better, but please do it anyway Because I need this.
Oh, and if you decide to cast Alex Pettyfer as Warner I would be cool with that.
original fan girl praise because I am incapable of actually writing a true unbiased, unaffected review for this series Okay, I have not properly reviewed this series since I read it a year ago and I don t think I ever can because it would be ridiculously long and the book is so quotable that I would literally be citing the entire thing but Shatter Me is one of my favorite series of ALL TIME And it has my FAVORITE LOVE INTEREST of ANY BOOK I VE EVER read Butttt, to anyone considering it, watch this I just found that fan video the other day and I can t stop watching it I m sorry but if that doesn t make you want to read this book you do not have a soul read THIS BOOK You will either love it or hate it depending on how you feel about prose but if you love it than O.
G you will love it like you ve loved nothing else.
