If you don’t already know (um, where have you been??) there’s a new SHATTER ME book coming out. Not just one book actually, Tahereh Mafi has a whole trilogy of new books planned!! *unintelligible high-pitched noises* If you can’t tell, we’re very excited, and want to share our excitement with you.
With RESTORE ME coming out, it came to our attention that not everyone has read the original trilogy. Frankly, we couldn’t not at least try to convince those readers to give it a shot. If you haven’t started this series yet there is SO MUCH you are missing out on. Seriously, this list doesn’t even begin to cover it. Here are just a few of the reasons you reallllly need to be reading this series! (TBH, we kind of just wanted a chance to rave about these books)
1. The writing style is super unique! ✍️
First of all, Tahereh Mafi is one hell of a writer. Her prose is so stunning it’s almost poetic, and the books are written as first-person narratives with an inner monologuing main character so she crosses out and she rewrites her thoughts.
Yes, it’s as cool as it sounds.
2. THE ROMANCE WILL HAVE YOU SWOONING! ❤️
When you’ve lived your life thinking your touch would kill anyone who got close, it’s pretty exciting to find out that some people are immune. Especially if one (or two) of those people are brooding, hot guys.
PSA: Don’t read chapter 62 of the second book, UNRAVEL ME, in public. You can thank us later.
3. It’s got some of the best character arcs OF. ALL. TIME. ?
Do you like your characters dynamic? What about snarky? And how about characters that are pushed to their limits and come out the other side an entirely different person?
Luckily, you don’t have to choose, because you can find all of the above in the SHATTER ME series. From Juliette to Kenji, Tahereh Mafi has you covered.
4. One word. Superpowers. ✨
Amidst the romance and character development, there are superpowers as well. Casual.
You know you like seeing all the big superhero blockbusters in the theater, so why not read about them on the page as well?
5. Finally, you don’t want to be left out. ?
When RESTORE ME arrives on shelves March 6, 2018, everyone who already read the original trilogy will be talking about it. If you haven’t caught up by then, you won’t be able to get in on the conversation. And no one likes being on the outside of the conversation. Just look at how sad poor Stitch is being left out. Don’t be like Stitch.
And you know you don’t want to have to go through the effort of muting all possible mentions of the book on Twitter to avoid spoilers.
Convinced? Pick up your copy of SHATTER ME and get to binge-reading!
