Restore Me

RESTORE ME by Tahereh Mafi is the fourth installment in the Shatter Me series. It takes place 16 days after the events that occur in IGNITE ME. Juliette has taken over Sector 45 and has Warner plotting by her side. But she can still kill with a single touch; there is no getting rid of that title. Juliette will have to figure out how to control her powers as well as Sector 45. They will face many challenges and the whole world is watching and waiting to see what happens.

Besides the Shatter Me series, Tahereh Mafi has also written the middle grade books, FURTHERMORE and WHICHWOOD. I have not read those yet, but after reading her new book I remembered how much I loved her writing, her stories and her characters. I will definitely be picking up her middle grade books soon.

"This book was captivating and the author’s writing just sucks you in from the first page….Mafi’s writing just flows and it is so elegant."

This book was very highly anticipated by me and many fans of this series. When I found out that Tahereh Mafi was writing RESTORE ME I was embarrassingly excited. Even though this was a long awaited book, it did not disappoint!! If you are skeptical about picking this book up because you liked how the trilogy wrapped up and you do not think it needed a fourth book, I suggest rethinking that and giving it a try.

I sped through RESTORE ME and could not put it down as hard as I tried to! This book was captivating and the author’s writing just sucks you in from the first page. The writing is so gorgeous and well thought out and you could tell that every word that was on the page was there for a reason; none of the words were there on accident. Mafi’s writing just flows and it is so elegant.

I am so happy we got to see more of Warner. He is so witty; from the first page I found myself smiling and sometimes laughing at what he would say. He is such an amazing character and Tahereh Mafi wrote him beautifully so it was hard not to fall in love with him. He is definitely flawed and we see that a lot in this book, but besides Warner all of Tahereh’s characters are lovable and fun and I loved reading about them. Their flaws are so realistic that you could see their types of flaws in the real world.

Additionally, this cover is gorgeous!! It is probably my favorite one in the series. The color scheme is perfect and it definitely matches the mood of the story in general.

This book, and this series in general, is great for all ages. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you will fall in love with these characters and the plot. If you have not read the Shatter Me series yet I strongly recommend it. You do not see a lot of dystopian books nowadays that draw you in and keep you reading but this one definitely does. You will not regret picking this book up!!
