A Demon Made Me Do It (Demonblood, #1)Currently Reading:  A Demon Made Me Do it. (Demonblood #1).  I took a break for Christmas and put off reading this until two days ago.  I absolutely LOVE it!  I am almost finished and will post a review as soon as I finish. 🙂

Next for me? 

Since I am enjoying A Demon Made Me Do it so much, I downloaded the second book Fire with Fire (Demonblood #2) by Penelope King.

Fire with Fire (Demonblood, #2)

And of course I am dying to get to Divergent by Veronica Roth and Stir Me UP by Sabrina Elkins since they keep staring at me on my kindle and whispering read me first, read me first!

Stir Me Up Divergent (Divergent, #1)

And as always you never know what little treasure will show up and DEMAND to be read.  Happy reading everyone.

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi

Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2) Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi.  Published Feb 5, 2013 by Harper Collins.  CDN $11.99 Kindle Edition.

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. (goodreads excerpt)

Where to start?  I absolutely love Mafi’s writing style.  It is so unique and engaging that it gives a different insight into Juliette’s thinking.  It makes her feel real.

I really enjoyed this second installment into the Shatter me series, despite the fact that it took me a long time to read.  That has more to do with my busy schedule than the book itself.  Granted it didn’t make me so enthralled that I couldn’t put it down, but every time I picked it up I had no problems reading it. The story itself was engaging and well thought out.  I have to admit as well that I didn’t read the novella Destroy Me, but it wasn’t necessary to enjoy the story.  I might go back and read it now given that it is Warner’s point of view and I have found a  but of a soft spot for him.  More like sympathy than I want him to win Juliette’s heart.  I still think he is a psychopath…lol.   I’m not a big fan of love triangles, but this one makes the story more real and engaging given that these are the only two people Juliette has encountered in her lifetime that she can touch-one good and one evil.

Shatter Me was very intense and I loved that.  I kept trying to imagine living Juliette’s life and having to deal with her powers and not being able to touch anyone.  In Unravel Me, she finds out more about her powers and others of her kind.  She learns how to deal with things much better and comes out of her shell that she has created.  We are introduced to a resistance group and some friends that Juliette learns to bond with.  I am really impressed with the Author’s unique insight into Juliette and her feelings and emotions.  She feels like a real person and you can’t help but empathize with her.

I am really looking forward to the next book.  I hope Juliette’s powers are explored further and her character becomes more developed.  You already see her growing more confident and sure of herself, but a lot is still held back.  I am interested to see how the love triangle plays out as well.

Overall I enjoyed the book very much.  It wasn’t quite as good as the first one, but still a great read.  I give it 4 ½ stars.

Teaser Tuesday (Nov 26)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

All I know is that Warner’s last words are caught in my chest and I can’t cough out the cold or the truth hacking at the back of my throat.

Adam has no idea that Warner can touch me.

No one does.
