Stacking the Shelves [#4]

Yeah, I did it again. One book was a easter gift though, and the others are paperbacks, so my purse didn’t suffer that much. Since I’ve finished reading The Fault in Our Stars, I had this urge to complete my collection of John Green books. It cannot be ignored, that’s for sure!

Book Review: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

[Update, May 2014: I just reread Shatter Me and then read Unravel Me, because I wanted to know what the fuss regarding this ominous Warner person was all about, because Tahereh Mafi seems like a lovely person on her social media and because I couldn’t resist the new covers, so I decided to give it another shot. While I still think that Shatter Me has its flaws, I was pleasantly surprised by Unravel Me. I found the sequel to be a lot more thoughtful & well-conceived, and I could even relate to the main characters. Let’s just say that it kept me up all night marking beautiful passages – I’ve come to appreciate Mafi’s writing style. So if you didn’t like Shatter Me, even though it’s a book you’d normally enjoy, do give it another chance once you have some time to spare.]
