Unite Me by Tahereh Mafi
Books 1.5 & 2.5 in the Shatter Me series
Genre: YA dystopian
Unite Me consisted of two novellas, Destroy Me (Warner) and Fracture Me (Adam). They were both good and I enjoyed reading them both, but I have to say that personally, I liked Destroy Me better.
Warner’s novella took place after he was shot at the end of Shatter Me. I learned a lot about his personality, his reputation, how he copes with things, and small bits of his past. It made me like him more, and I started to feel bad for him. His dad made an appearance, and he made everything worse; as if Warner didn’t have enough on his plate. Even though not a lot really happened, I thought it was great. 😀
Adam’s novella was the ending of Unravel Me in his perspective. If I’m honest, I didn’t enjoy it as much. I was worried about James and the ending seriously shocked me (on that note, WHAT EVEN?!), but I just didn’t like it. I didn’t learn anything new about Adam and my feelings for him weren’t changed. Plus, all he seemed to think about was James’ safety and Juliette’s vulnerability. That was a bit annoying to me. I think James and the ending are what kept me from lowering the rating (in this case; I did love Destroy Me).
All in all, Unite Me was a quick but great book. It had a few flaws, but I still enjoyed it. I can’t wait to read Ignite Me! 😀
