I was full on ready to read this book and love it but sadly I was mildly disappointed. Maybe my expectation were to high. I found the first half of the book to be a bit slow, around the half way point things start to pick up.The writing style of course is beautifully written.Shatter Me was a trilogy that is now going to be a 6th book series, and Restore Me is book 4. I feel like this is a bridge book setting up the series to keep moving forward.
Restore me picks up exactly where ignite me left off with Juliette becoming Supreme commander of North America. I really like how this book is told in the POV of Juliette and Warner’s. A lot of things that left me wondering from the original trilogy where explained in this book. There were so many revelations and twists in this book and I’m so excited to see where this series goes.
Juliette has come such a long way since book 1, she is stronger and able to better control her powers. But she’s not perfect and that makes her such a relatable character. She discovers a lot of intense information about herself and her past in this book, it was incredible.I love how the more Juliette emotionally heals the more in -tuned with her powers she gets.
Warner I’m STILL COMPLETE TRASH FOR HIM !!He’s still swoonworthy and I love him so so much !! I really loved his point of view , we get to see how he views the world.We see him deal with anxiety which was so well done.
There relationship is still full of so much drama. These two need to learn to communicate better. Warner’s life has always been mysterious, no real information about his past. So it shouldn’t have been a surprise to Juliette that there was still things he was keeping from her. In Unravel Me and Ignite Me it’s hinted at that Warner had to do something to become in charge of sector 45 but it was never revealed what he did. But I think that now that all these secrets have been revealed will make there relationship stronger.
Kenji deserves the world! I love how supportive of Juliette he was, and he finally got some much needed bonding time with Warner. They have so many good interactions, they were so funny together!! I have always loved Kenji and I’m super happy he stayed relatively the same character. I love his witty banter.
I think Adam deserved a bigger role in this book, he was barely mentioned.We spent most of the original trilogy with him and for him to be excluded left me missing him.
I have no idea how in the hell Tahereh Mafi expects us to wait a WHOLE YEAR to read the next book. The ending scene I felt was rushed, I wanted more!
