March To Be Read Books:
School has been overwhelming these past few weeks so I decided to reread two books, Anna and the French Kiss and Divergent (since the movie will be out this month!). I’m about a quarter of the way through with The Evolution of Mara Dyer, looking forward to finishing it this month!
View of my bookshelves from my bed. I rearranged again and made some space on my bookshelves. For new books maybe? 😈❤️📚
buying books makes me so happy :)
some people hated ignite me ‘cause of how it ended but i personally thought it was 10000x better than the first two books combined! if you liked unravel me then you need to read ignite me NOW. as in NOW.
I still have to get Ignite Me, but I won’t be getting it for like 20 days because the paperback will not be available to me until then. *sigh*
Juliette 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.
There are things about this book that I really liked, but there were also things about this book that made me clutch my stomach and groan like I had a stomach illness. First off, this book has a really interesting concept. Juliette cannot touch people or they die, which of course makes you wonder “WHY? HOW DOES SHE COPE?” The idea alone if very attractive and sucks you in. It’s a pretty quick read, so you fly though the story without realizing it.
This book is very often tagged as a dystopian, but it doesn’t really focus on that too much. We get some details, but it just doesn’t seem too dystopian-y. I got much more a paranormal romance vibe, but hopefully, we’ll get a better look into that in the next two books. *fingers crossed* The book focuses really on Juliette’s relationship with Adam, and for someone who was so distant and cold and has psychological damage, she sure does do a complete 180 very fast (
and it gets kind of annoying, whoops.)
This book really sucks you in whether you’re enjoying it or not, and has a very interesting concept and antagonist that really makes it hard to hate him. (Warner was definitely the most interesting character.) The other characters like Kenji and James adds light in a dark world and they warm your heart and make you laugh, which is lovely.
I didn’t love this book, and I didn’t really hate it or think it was okay. I just liked it. It’s not a book I want to take to see my favorite bands or share secrets with, but I still like it enough to see it’s good qualities and appreciate it.
