I wasn’t tagged to do this but I saw Romie @ RomieWeDeserveLove do it (and loved her answers) and figured I had to do it so I could at least keep some kind of record of what I have read thus far in 2018. I don’t think I’m going to explain any of my answers within these, I will link reviews if I have them but I don’t want this review to get too long honestly.
WARNING: THERE WILL BE SPOILERS FOR THE FIRST TWO BOOKS IN THIS SERIES. I WOULD RECOMMEND HAVING READ THE OTHER TWO BOOKS BEFORE THIS. HOWEVER, I CAN’T CONTROL YOU, SO, LIKE, READ AHEAD IF YOU WANT. THIS REVIEW IS ALSO KIND OF A LOT OF RAMBLE, SO HAVE FUN.
Release Date: February 4th, 2014

The heart-stopping conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Shatter Me series, which Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, called “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love.”
With Omega Point destroyed, Juliette doesn’t know if the rebels, her friends, or even Adam are alive. But that won’t keep her from trying to take down The Reestablishment once and for all. Now she must rely on Warner, the handsome commander of Sector 45. The one person she never thought she could trust. The same person who saved her life. He promises to help Juliette master her powers and save their dying world . . . but that’s not all he wants with her.
The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent by Veronica Roth, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, and Legend by Marie Lu. Tahereh Mafi has created a captivating and original story that combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, and was praised by Publishers Weekly as “a gripping read from an author who’s not afraid to take risks.” Now this final book brings the series to a shocking and satisfying end.
WARNING: IF YOU HAVE NOT READ SHATTER ME (THE FIRST BOOK) I WOULD READ WITH CAUTION, THIS REVIEW MAY CONSIDER THINGS YOU BELIEVE ARE SPOILERS. ALSO, I HAVE NOT LISTED THE TRIGGER WARNINGS FOR THIS BOOK BUT THERE ARE MANY.
Release Date: February 5th, 2013
The thrilling second installment in New York Times bestselling author Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me series.
It should have taken Juliette a single touch to kill Warner. But his mysterious immunity to her deadly power has left her shaken, wondering why her ultimate defense mechanism failed against the person she most needs protection from.
She and Adam were able to escape Warner’s clutches and join up with a group of rebels, many of whom have powers of their own. Juliette will finally be able to actively fight against The Reestablishment and try to fix her broken world. And perhaps these new allies can help her shed light on the secret behind Adam’s—and Warner’s—immunity to her killer skin.
Juliette’s world is packed with high-stakes action and tantalizing romance, perfect for fans of the Red Queen series by Victoria Aveyard and the Darkest Minds trilogy by Alexandra Bracken.
Ransom Riggs, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, raved: “A thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love, the Shatter Me series is a must-read for fans of dystopian young-adult literature—or any literature!”
February was a bit of a strange month for me. Actually strange the wrong word. It was a fucked up month. It was busy and an absolute fucking mess. I was doing good reading and then early in the month, my mum ended up in the hospital overnight. Which resulted in me having to sit with her a lot afterwards. It was just a mess, honestly. Then a friend was moving away so I tried to spend some time with him and apparently it’s not socially acceptable to take your Kindle to a movie theatre. I know, ridiculous! I did watch Black Panther and developed a love for Michael B Jordan, just normal Feb things.
Obviously, you aren’t here to hear about my month though. You want to know how much I read. In February I read fourteen books. A decent amount but I personally wanted to read more. I didn’t enjoy a lot of books I read this month either. My favourite was probably Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi – the only book I rated five stars. What was your favourite book?
Anyway, these are the books I read in February:
