The book was great, I’ve just finished it and I’m still shocked over the ending, but I felt like the book was so short, still loved it though. The Shatter Me series is one of my favorites and I’ve been waiting so long for this!!! I can’t wait for the next book!

I always enjoy these books but also think they are all far too short, especially this one (250 pages). I am, however, a fan of the new developments this book introduced and am definitely excited for the next book!

I was not disappointed! I feel like two more books are needed for the characters to complete their journeys in this next round of adventure. Please don't stop, we, the readers/fans, need more!

Wow. WOW. I honestly loved this book so much. My favorite thing was how real Juliette and Warner were and how much they continue to develop and change throughout this series. Tahereh Mafi's writing is so unique and beautiful that it made me not want to put this one down. It's save to say I'm PUMPED for Book 5!

I’m always apprehensive about giving unfavorable reviews to books targeting outside my demographic. With that said, young adult to new adult are my guilty pleasure so I often find myself conflicted as to whether my opinion is even relevant. At any rate, it should be noted that this Shatter Me installment is definitely YA in content and mannerisms. First off, Restore Me is a bit of a misleading title; nothing is restored except absolute chaos and most of that is mental. In fact, I would say 75% of this read is introspective and it’s not pretty. Juliette has all but completely regressed and Warner is a basket case. It’s just shy of character assassination for both, disappointing to say the least. I probably under-appreciate Mafi’s poetic flare because this read amounts to 448 pages of flamboyant chatter for me. There are several major past revelations but the storyline is very shallow; the new information is basically planted for the next installment and the one notable event seems disconnected. I think the information could have been easily incorporated into a comprehensive plot. More thoughts... Kenji, as always comic relief with hints of evolution into a three dimensional character, we aren’t there yet but I’m intrigued by the prospect. Castle is the tool of all tools, I don’t like him and I don’t trust him! James is a prop, I’m ok with that, but Adam deserved better. Wait wasn’t he super upset in his first appearance?!? Either I missed that point or it was an abandoned subplot. Either way I’m not a fan of Adam but as a former major player he needs to be written off or given significance. I actually like the new characters.. pretty much. Lena is a bit ridiculous. Mild spoilers... I assume the shooting will have significance later but since it’s literally the only event in the book until the last few pages, I feel like it should have tied in better. It’s kind like we need some action, stick something in there towards the middle. I experienced serious frustration over the ridiculousness of Warner having a previous relationship. Can we just get a blinking sign that says “foreshadowing”? Of course a 19 year old man has been in a relationship or two. And it’s very Warner not to mention it, just as it’s very Juliette to not ask (she is a bit self absorbed). Anyway her whole grudge against Warner is forced, it’s all about her “not being able to trust him” which IMO is contrived. More believable would be an inability to accept his past brutality.

It's been a while since I read the first three books of this series and I'm definitely thinking of doing a complete reread before the next book is released. I loved this, but I would have enjoyed it more if I would have remembered the finer points. 1. The characters. Something that I've seen everyone obsessing over is the fact that we now get Warner's POV and I can say with confidence that I was not disappointed in the slightest! I loved getting to see both sides of their relationship, and since the plot revolves majorly on the secrets Warner keeps from Juliette, it really emphasized the situation. After stepping away from the series for so long, I think the author did a wonderful job in staying true to her characters. Adam is slowly fading to the background (I'm taking that as a sign that he'll play a pivotal role in the next book!) and Kenji is still amazing and lovely and hilarious. We also get to see a more serious side of him which really helped to develop his character into something more than just comic relief. As for the MC, Juliette, I loved being in her head again! 2. The plot. I have... mixed feelings about this. Generally speaking, I loved it (illustrated by the fact that I finished it in 2.5 hours) and I was sucked in completely from the very first page. My one complaint is that it all seemed a bit thrown together. I suppose Juliette's reality at the moment is a bit thrown together but all the same, there was just this torrent of feelings all the time coming from both Juliette and Warner about different revelations and I just wanted something substantial to happen. Additionally, I wish the ending (the whole speech bit) was given more than one chapter. SO much happened there and it needed so much more than one chapter. Beyond that, though, I thought it was all lovely and intriguing. The plot line constantly kept me on my toes. Overall feelings, though? Definite bridge book. 3. The romance. This is also where it gets interesting. As I said in the section above, a lot of the plot is centered around certain secrets and revelations that alter Juliette's reality. This impacts Warner and Juliette's relationship substantially and also leads to some more great character development on Juliette's side of the bar. Recently, I haven't been loving the romances in books but this book gave me hope that I'm not completely burned out on them. I loved Warner and Juliette's relationship and how the author structured their uncertainties with each other. 4. The writing. I felt like I had to mention this as Tahereh Mafi is one of my favorite writers in terms of style. I absolutely love her creative use of line spacing, strike-outs, and repetition. She does such a great job of using these techniques (and others) to create a unique atmosphere for each mind in each POV. Her writing also does so much to bring emotion to life; something that is difficult to accomplish effectively. I can imagine that her style of writing doesn't appeal to everyone, but to me, it's positively beautiful. The Final Verdict: With a heart-pounding plotline and constantly evolving characters, this installment of the series has left me excited to read the next section. Warner and Juliette's relationship continues to get a thumbs-up from me, as well. However, despite all this, Restore Me is, at it's heart, at bridge book. 4 stars

The Shatter Me Series had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I've been waiting for this book for so long and I finally finished yesterday. It took me a while to read it because at times I got so annoyed by certain characters I just had to take a break from it. Apart from that, the book was great like the others, but the ending had me wanting more. I hate cliffhangers.

The book ended during the climax... The characters did not even act following their personalities from the previous books... It just feels like a different author wrote this book and I was extremely dissapointed. The first books were absolutely amazing and I reread them multiple times, but this book ended weirdly... I wouldn't even call it a cliffhanger. So much was jammed into the last 20 pages that it didn't make sense and it was just confusing and frustrating. I am giving this 3 stars only because the first books were really good. Even though this one wasn't I would still recommend the series. I hope the next books are better...

I feel like everything I thought I knew about this series is being completely obliterated and my heart can't take it. I dont know what I expected but it wasn't this. I'm very intrigued and curious about the children of the supreme commanders. And that ending just about killed me.

Restore Me by Tahereh Mafi was an unexpected continuation of one of my favorite series. The Shatter Me Trilogy leaves us with a 17-year-old Juliette as the new supreme commander of North America. Readers had questions about the rest of the reestablishment, what the world is like, and many a character backstory. Let me just say Mafi delivered answers in spades. Because of the POV, information is always delivered in interesting and often skewed ways, something that only increased with the addition of Warner’s POV. Warner is just trying to make it through and Kenjo was completely right when he said that Warner literally does not know how to be himself or share anything that’s happened to him. Sure it comes off as super questionable and untrustworthy to Juliette, but Warner actually thinks that if he mentions anything about his past he will lose her because he believes he deserves all isolation and punishment. But then you have to think that from Juliette’s perspective her life is a lie and nothing is really so it’s just incredibly frustrating. I genuinely enjoyed how they mentioned the amount of boring work goes into running the entirety of North America. This book deals with the hard problems not a lot of YA actually confronts. Kenji continues to be the rock of the novel and let’s be honest if it weren’t for him their rebellion would not leave the ground. Warner getting closer to more people like his brothers and Kenji. I think some time apart might help them be a closer pairing. I hope so at least. It is unfortunate that that separation comes in the form of the biggest plot twist to shake my life I.E. imprisonment. I had a feeling Juliette’s new friend was going to stab her in the back after Warner mentioned her thing was mind games. I think everyone can agree with Castle in saying that these kids need some serious peace and quiet and a ton of therapy to deal with their tragic pasts. I love the inclusion of racial conversations, mental health, and healthy relationships. They were conversations that needed to be had at some point and I give her credit for their seamless integration in the plotline. I could not recommend this book or this series more. EDIT: I can’t believe I forgot to mention the fact that she killed 600 people in seconds. Also, everyone else was taken away somewhere. So what’s going to happen? How will she live with that kind of guilt? Will Warner be ok? How are they going to get out of this one?

Speechless ? I don't understand the end. Was she asleep the whole time and the experiment was in her head? Did none of it even happen? Does Warner even exist? I'm lost. But it's still such a good series. Would totally read all of them all over again.
