Okay so it’s been a couple days since the reveal but I’ve been really busy and I’m only able to do this now as I’m on the way to college, BUT I’M SO DARN EXCITED. I’ve also never done a “reaction” post before, so this should be interesting.
For any of you who don’t know, Tahereh Mafi is writing three new books set after the Shatter Me trilogy.
I wouldn’t go so far to say that the Shatter Me is trilogy is life, but Ignite Me (book 3) IS life because it’s the BEST EVER.
I’m also really glad she’s writing further as there was quite a lot left open at the end of Ignite Me and I’ve been living off rereading the best fanfiction I found.
We’re definitely keeping up with the same theme as the previous books, with the single eye. But the colour scheme ❤
I have to say, this might be my most favourite cover yet. I love the green contrasting the white.
It also says the past will not forget me on top. In the previous books, the line on top of the cover describes Juliette’s mood through the book, so this seems ominous.
Something coming up from the past? Or is this her vowing that the past will not forget her?
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?
Ooh okay so it looks like the events in Restore Me are quite after the ending of Ignite Me. I really hope there are flashbacks because I want to know EVERYTHING.
I’m reading the excerpt from this EW article.
Ooh it says that the book will be written in dual POVs. I’ve read the novellas as well, and Warner’s voice is VERY different from Juliette’s. It completely matched with how I imagined it would be and I was so sad we only had that novella. But now we’ll get more from Warner and this is going to be GOOD.
It’s not too far after the end of Ignite Me, turns out, and obviously Juliette has not gotten over the war just yet.
I love seeing Kenji and him being playful again. And it is SO NICE to see Warner being playful. That, too, with Kenji! That’s my LIFE. RIGHT. THERE. I can die and go to heaven now.* I legit just laughed out loud in the bus and the guy sitting next to me must be thinking I’m crazy for being so giddy over an internet article, but whatever.
*Lol not really I want to read the books first
WAIT WHAT?! THAT’S IT?!
I might be going through withdrawal symptoms already. THAT WAS WAY TOO LESS! I NEED MORE!
Damn it, I KNEW reading the excerpt wasn’t going be a good choice. Now I’ll spend the days until release day rereading the books and fanfictions again.
Restore Me releases on March 6th, 2018, as per Goodreads, and that’s too far! Noooo.
