Juliette Ferrars thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she’s got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?
It’s been sixteen days since Juliette Ferrars killed the supreme commander of North America and took over as ruler of The Reestablishment on the continent.
Sixteen Daus since she assassinated Warner’s father.
Juliette thought she’d won. She took over Sector 45 and how has Warner by her side. But she’s still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—-and with so much power in her young hands, the world is watching her every move, waiting to see what happens next.
Juliette and Warner have risked everything. But when tragedy strikes, they must confront the darkness that exists both around and inside them. Will they be able to control the power Juliette wields, or will it control them?
For those of you who may not know, Restore Me (by Tahereh Mafi) is the 4th book in the Shatter Me series.
My thoughts on Restore Me are that we thought we knew everything, but little did we know, there’s so much more, way more, that we find out in Restore Me. What we find out just raises more questions for me.
What I didn’t like about Restore Me was the cliff hanger at the end. I felt like we should have known what actually ended up happening happened. It was such a plot twist and feels like it was thrown in at the last moment. The ending feels like it was written like this: “such and such happens *light bulb goes off in head* oh SH*T THEN THIS HAPPENS AND AHHH IT SOUNDS AMAZING!!! I’m putting that in the book nO ONE CAN STOP ME!!!!!” The ending feels like it was thrown together haphazardly, is what I’m trying to get at.
Tahereh Mafi’s writing still lures me in and holds me captive until the very last page. I’m actually pretty glad that Mafi decided to rip open this series again and add onto it.
We see how Juliette is at the beginning of Restore Me, and then three-fourths into this book we realize that Juliette, as much as she puts on a brave face subconsciously, she isn’t ok.
What I liked about Restore Me was how the book started off with Juliette’s POV, and the scene included the 3 people I most like: Juliette, Kenji, and Warner. Even though I was thrown off by the fact that so much was kept secret. I liked that we finally get the nitty-gritty details of how The Reestablishment came to fruition.
So there are two points of view within Restore Me. I don’t remember how I knew this was going to be a thing, but I probably heard it fall down from the grape vine that there were going to be dual points of view from both Juliette and Warner.
Juliette goes through so much in this book and that is legit no joke. I’m not making light of what she goes through in Restore me. I didn’t know what would happen since I avoided reading the synopsis. Juliette had her world thrown upside down and she, once again, didn’t know whom she could trust.
I was not ready for Warner’s point of view, at all. I really like Warner’s character and his point of view on things, so once I got used to his way of thinking I started enjoying Restore Me more. Actually enjoying Warner’s point of view made me realize he brings a whole other side of the story that is only just now being revealed within Restore Me. He offers so much more insight and just proves that Juliette is as ignorant to things as ever.
Overall thoughts about Restore Me are that, Restore Me ends on one hell of a cliff hanger. I need the next book ASAP! I had no idea what to expect from Restore Me. I avoided almost any and all spoilers at all costs. I didn’t even read the synopsis for Restore Me. What I got though. What I got from Restore Me was that the Shatter me world is now in a huge upheaval (at least for me) and there is sooooo much that could happen. Like, what? I am still reeling from that ending!
The next book better start from Warner’s point of view! That’s all I’m saying!
I give Restore Me 4 of 5 stars.
Have you read Restore Me, yet?
