Book Review- Unravel Me

I finished reading Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi last night for an Around the World ARC Tour.

From Goodreads:

tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
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.

Unfortunately, I am horrible about remembering what has happened in previous books in a series.  So when I get the chance to review them close together, I always feel more relieved.  And luckily, I was able to do that with the first 2 books in the Shatter Me series.

Since I had just read Shatter Me less than a month ago, I remembered how unusual the writing was and was able to get absorbed into it right away.  And I loved it just as much this time around.

For some reason, this book reminds me of the X-Men.  Except I don't like that movie and I love these books!  I love how all of these superpowers are coming into play.  It has me on the edge of my seat.  And there are definitely some surprise twists and turns.  Especially with Juliette and Adam and his power. 

I didn't want to put this book down and I don't know how I'm going to wait until the third book comes out.  I did just discover that there is an e-book set between the first two books, Destroy Me, so I'll be downloading that one right away!

I gave this book a rating of 4.5/5.

Unravel Me will be released on February 5, 2013.
