Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi (Shatter Me #1.5)


“Sometimes I wish I could step outside of myself for a while. I want to leave this worn body behind, but my chains are too many, my weights too heavy. This life is all that’s left of me. And I know I won’t be able to meet myself in the mirror for the rest of the day”




I just recently finished reading Shatter Me, and I thought that there was absolutely nothing in the world that could ever compel me to like Warner, even a little bit. I was completely wrong.

Destroy Me is a novella set between Shatter Me and Unravel Me, told from the point of view of Warner after he was shot. You see how Warner’s mindset works, the rigidity of his behavior and mannerisms. Furthermore, you have an opportunity to see his father and learn about Warner’s childhood. Some of the actions of Warner that seemed especially despicable in Shatter Me from Juliette’s point of view take on an entirely different slant when you understand the truth from Warner’s perspective.

Over time you can also see how his interactions with Juliette have destroyed the person he was.

I don’t think that any review of a Mafi book would be complete without commenting on her unique writing style. It truly has a unique voice that captures the story that she is telling perfectly.

Seriously if you are a fan of Shatter Me, this novella is a MUST.
