Continuo a dire :" Mi dispiace, mi dispiace tanto, mi dispiace per tutto, per tutto questo, per tutti i problemi che ho causato, per tutti i danni, sul serio, mi dispiace davvero tanto..." Mi sento ripetere quelle parole ancora e ancora e ancora e non riesco a fermarmi. È come se nel mio cervello si fosse guastato un pulsante, come se avessi contratto una malattia che mi costringe a scusarmi di tutto, di esistere, di volere più di quello che mi è stato dato, e non riesco a smettere. Mi comporto così. Mi scuso di continuo. Mi scuserò per sempre. Per quello che sono e per quello che non ho mai voluto essere e per il corpo con cui sono nata, per il DNA che non ho mai chiesto, per la persona che non posso smettere di essere. Sono 17 anni che cerco di essere diversa. Ogni singolo giorno. Che cerco di essere qualcun altro per qualcun altro. E non sembra importante.

I love how Warner went from evil to literal perfection so fast I got whiplash.

Sometimes I wish I never had to sleep. Sometimes I think that if I stay very, very still, if I never move at all, things will change. I think if I freeze myself I can freeze the pain. Sometimes I won’t move for hours. I will not move an inch. If time stands still nothing can go wrong.
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me. (HarperCollins November 15, 2011) (via The Vale of Soul Making)

Umm so I disappeared for a little while and that’s fun but I’m back and have been reading the Shatter Me series and let me say I have been completely destroyed so you might see some posts on that 😐

Ignite me is the third book in the Shatter Me series and it was a good read. i cant say much without spoilers but (i’m assuming because it’s your typical YA) it did get frustrating at times. there was a lot of unnecessary arguments which weren’t needed and because of that i personally loved Unravel Me more than Ignite Me. BUT i did enjoy it! i feel like if i had read this series when i was younger i would have enjoyed the constant drama 🥴 i’m excited to read the fourth book (Restore Me) but i’ve heard it isn’t the best.. which makes me nervous

Aaron Warner’s obsession with Juliet makes nearly no sense in the first three books of the Shatter Me series. It’s sweet, but makes no sense. It is scary! Why the fuck is he willing to make so many exceptions to his life for her? But also like, my favorite thing is that when Juliet is having a panic attack because Adam is fucking douche that deserves to be punched several times and tells her to get the fuck out of his house Or ElSe, and Warner burst in he’s like, Do you want to leave? Do you want me take you back with me? Do you want ME to leave?
That right there! That is love! He doesn’t care if it hurts him, he will respect her boundaries! And this obsession is scary but his love is real because he is willing to do what’s right for her, respect her above all else! Even if she doesn’t like him!
But then in the next two books this shit is cleared up. His love for her makes so much more sense! And if I didn’t get an explanation I wouldn’t respect these stories really because love like that isn’t realistic and it isn’t even love and if Warner wasn’t willing to give Juliet her space I would have stopped reading promptly! But Tahereh Mafi came through! So anyway, I’m back on my Shatter Me shit.

It's not insane to imagine that sometimes even horrible people are searching for a way out of their own darkness.

The moon is a loyal companion. It never leaves. It's always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it's a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human. Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.

An emotion of great delight. Tahereh Mafi ⭐⭐1/2⭐
Tumblr media
If this book had been posted on Ao3, my god, the wall of warning tags would have looked scary.
Spoilery tags incoming. And then the actual review.
Just a few things that fit as warnings: Grief. Death of sibling. Mention of drug abuse. Racism. Islamophobia. Self harm. Suicide attempts. Hospitalization. Depression. Car accidents. Domestic abuse. Dark thoughts. Angst. Heavy angst. Little to no comfort.
But also, Eventual hope. Slice of life.
Oh, and Open ending; which a lot of people probably won't like.
This entire book felt kind of like an angsty fic; except I don't know the character, so it's all just... sad. I felt bad for the characters, but that's about how far it went.
I liked Shadi at first, but as the book went on I really started wondering what had happened to this kid to make her so... broken(?) Insecure(??) And that was before her brother died. The relationship to her friend that she keeps clinging to... like, gurl, I know you're just 17, but you should just rip that band-aid and move on. She'd probably start treating you better if you grew an actual backbone. (And I'll bet that despite that nasty fallout they'll meet up in four years and catch up with each other when they go home for spring break during college. Speaking from experience here.)
And also, Stop wishing people dead, Shadi.
One small thing is that there's no sense of setting. It says 2003 on the back, but it might as well have been 2019. Yeah, they talked about the FBI in correlation to the war on Iraq, but that doesn't tell me much since I was born in 2000. I don't even remember if they say where it takes place. It's like a void with a series of tragic events.
I really liked the Farsi dialogue and cultural references. I can kind of imagine what an Iraqi Muslim home could look like.
But that's about it for me, which is why I'm giving it 2.5 stars. I've read angsty fanfics that did it better for me.
