U: Unravel Me Review #AtoZChallenge

UU is for Unravel Me, the second book in Tahereh Mafi’s NYT Bestselling trilogy. You can read my review of the first, Shatter Me, here. The last book, Ignite Me, released earlier this year.

Unravel_MeJuliette 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.

Book Review: Shatter Me by @TaherehMafi

Shatter Me is the first in a YA trilogy. Unravel Me is the second and the third, Fracture Me, is released next February.
Shatter_MeJuliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The 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 a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The 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 more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

Review: Edgewood and Wanderlust by @KarenMcQuestion

Edgewood and Wanderlust are the first two books in the Edgewood Series. The third, Absolution, is scheduled for release in September.
Edgewood_WanderlustThe night Russ Becker witnesses a strange astronomical event, his world changes forever. Before long Russ discovers he’s developed incredible superpowers, and he’s not the only one. Three other young people—beautiful Mallory, arrogant Jameson, and mysterious Nadia—have had the same experience and all of them now have powers of their own. Mallory can control peoples’ minds, Jameson moves objects with his thoughts, and Nadia has empathic abilities.

At first the four relish their newfound gifts, but things become serious when they learn they are being hunted by an organization that wants them for its own nefarious purposes. When Russ’s family is threatened, he’s forced into action. What transpires will change all of them in ways they never imagined.

Space? Teens with superpowers? Sign me up!

Edgewood‘s plot and characters were extremely engaging (I flew through the book). The biggest thing that stood out to me after reading it was McQuestion’s excellent job of narrating the mind of a fifteen year old boy. She handled the topic of YA sex well without being distasteful or ignoring it completely, both of which can be pitfalls in YA books.
