Book Review | Unite Me by Tahereh Mafi (Destroy Me and Fracture Me)

Unite Me (Shatter Me, #1.5, #2.5)

Unite Me (Shatter Me, #1.5, #2.5)

Author: Tahereh Mafi
Publisher: HarperCollins
Page Number: 197
Genre: Dystopian
Publication Date: February 4, 2014
Synopsis from Goodreads: 
Perfect for fans of Tahereh Mafi’s New York Times bestselling Shatter Me trilogy, this book collects her two companion novellas, Fracture Me and Destroy Me, in print for the first time ever. It also features an exclusive look into Juliette’s journal and a preview of Ignite Me, the hotly anticipated final novel of the series.

Destroy Me tells the events between Shatter Me and Unravel Me from Warner’s point of view. Even though Juliette shot him in order to escape, Warner can’t stop thinking about her—and he’ll do anything to get her back. But when the Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment arrives, he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner cannot allow.

Fracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective and bridges the gap between Unravel Me and Ignite Me. As the Omega Point rebels prepare to fight the Sector 45 soldiers, Adam's more focused on the safety of Juliette, Kenji, and his brother. The Reestablishment will do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam cares about.

The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent and The Hunger Games. This captivating story, which combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, was praised as “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love” by Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

My Review:
Merp. This book wasn't anything special to me, it didn't really change my opinion of Adam or Warner.
I still didn't like them all that much, although I might be Team Warner. 
Like all novellas, they are just short little insights into what happened before/after, and although they weren't good, I don't like most novellas, so that's fine. 
Out of the two novellas, I think I prefered Destroy Me better, probably because since he has a pretty complex mind, it was interesting to take a sneak peek to how much he really loved Juliette.
Fracture Me would, alone, be a 2.5 to me, but it was okay. It wasn't action packed, in fact, none of them were action packed, so I didn't enjoy them much.

I don't want this to seem like a completely negative review, so I'll put some positive feedback as well!
Kenji, as all ways, is sassy and awesome. He probably was the one who influenced me to keep reading. It was well written, descriptive as always. 

Despite my mostly negative reviews, this is a must read for any Shatter Me fan, so I suggest you pick them up!
