    DAMNIT WARNER. couldn't put this novella down... THAT NEVER HAPPENS WITH NOVELLAS.

    Update 06-19-15: Tahereh Mafi has just announced that Shatter Me is going to be a tv show! OHMYGOD. I have so many feels! We are finally going to see a physical manifestation of Warner! WHY ISN'T EVERYONE ELSE FREAKING OUT?! It would be a huge mistake if they don't cast Hunter Parrish because he looks perfect as Warner!----- SHE WILL CHOOSE ME. October 16, 2012! I watched Tahereh Mafi's video of this saying that Destroy Me is written EXCLUSIVELY ...

    *3.5 stars*Possibly, the reason why I am not loving this as much as everyone else – even though I still enjoyed it – is because I’ve finished the Shatter Me trilogy weeks ago and only now decided to pick this #1.5 novella up.It may not have been the most intelligent thing to do, but, in my defence, novellas are not my favorite types of reads and I prefer to leave them be, so they don’t risk ruining characters or…some scenes for me. Like...

    ...from the perspective of the villain we all love to hate, Warner.But I don't hate Warner. I looove him. I didn't thought I could possibly love Warner more but I was wrong. My God,he is such a sweetheart. That scene with the dog killed me. I recently saw Equilibrium and something similar happened over there. I don't usually rate novellas/short stories but in this case I will make an exception. Full review to come.
  • Sofii♡ (A Book. A Thought.)
    Re-Read : (13/02/2018) I love Warner so much !, I've possibly already mentioned in my old review down here, but I'll say it again. This book is so necessary if you're reading the Shatter Me trilogy, I think that will give you a new perspective of Warner and his personal story, you can't miss this one, of course it's a 5/5 Stars for me, always Original Review: (26/06/2016) “I almost forget that she still hates me, despite how hard I've fallen ...

    English - Español In Shatter Me Juliette seduced and then wounded Warner with his own weapon to escape and help Adam, but Warner is still obsessed with her.For people who do not like spoilers, I suggest to leave this supplementary book to the end because it gives way too much information. It is written from Warner's point of view and for me it is as wonderful as I thought.✨✨✨En Shatter Me Juliette sedujo y luego hirió con su propia arma a...
  • Regan
    I honestly i thought i was with Adam all the way. But reading this has completely changed my perspective on everything, i am so TORN. I cannot wait to read unravel me now..Also the new perspective was refreshing an allowed more insight on what was happened. I almost cried twice when i found out various truths while reading this..
  • C.G. Drews
    This is actually so so important to the series?! And I'm mAD. I should've read it years ago! But I always feel like novella are "oh you can read it or not it doesn't matter"...but this one is a "YOU GOTTA READ IT AND UNDERSTAND WARNER." So I hereby say: I think Shatter Me should've been dual narrated between Warner and Juliette! heh. It would've made him seem like slightly a less creepy controlling sadistic cauliflower patch.Although tbh his obse...

    UPDATE! FUCKINGAWESOME UPDATE!♥ BOOK TRAILER and an excerpt of this book.^ Lets just say, I died after watching the trailer. Like.seriously. <.

    Warning: Do not read if you didn't read "Shatter Me" and don't want to be spoiled?! *lol*I'm not quite sure if an additional short story to a series can really spoil you, but I thought I might warn you just in case! ;-PBut then again the only people who will read this will be people who loved the series so umm.... We're good?! *lol*Anywayyyyyyy!First of all: I already liked Warner in “Shatter me” and to read his POV in “Destroy me” only c...
  • Booknut
    Everyone! Quick! IT'S A BOOK FULL OF WARNER AWESOMENESS!! This book is amazing. Poor Warner - he's feelings for Juliette are so beautiful (and often screwed up, but who doesn't love a good-looking and witty psychopath, eh?!!). He's all like: And I'm like: And I still am. Yeah, Adam is a winner (no arguing there) but Warner has my heart! As does Kenji, the brilliant and foul-mouthed lad he is :DSo let us have a moment to appreciate the genius that...

    “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.” Story ⭐⭐⭐⭐This is a novella in Warner’s point of view where we see what’s going on in his mind after Juliette shot him. We get to meet Warner’s dad who is the...
    4.25 SHE WILL CHOOSE ME. ★'s“Watching her talk to someone else made me crazy. I was jealous. Ridiculous. I wanted her to know me; I wanted her to talk to me. And I felt it then: this strange, inexplicable sense that she might be the only person in the world I could really care about.”I can't believe I did not read this before now! In all honesty, I usually don't enjoy these short filler story's all that much. They usually bore me, there for...

  • Mariah of the Night Court
    WARNER MY LOVE.***Contains Spoilers***I HAVE NEVER READ A NOVELLA SO QUICKLY AND INTENSELY LIKE THIS IN MY LIFE.The whole entire 109 pages were from Warner's point of view and made me love him more than I already do. And he thinks about Juliette a ton, which may sound a bit obsessive, but it still makes me all happy inside. The ways in which he thinks about her though are so, like, I can't even put it into words. Even though Juliette hates him, I...
  • Christy
    4 stars Love is a heartless bastard. I’m driving myself insane. After reading Destroy Me, I am completely softened to Warner. I wasn’t sure if I would like him, but there was something in the first book that intrigued me. After reading this, I can most definitely say I understand him much better and I truly do like him. Warner isn’t perfect, but he’s not the man I thought he was. He’s so much more. I loved being in his head and seeing ...
  • Angelica
    Warner, my baby, you deserve so much happiness in this world!
  • April (Aprilius Maximus)
    2019 - still shook at the difference between this warner and shatter me warneroriginal review - I really didn't know how Mafi was going to convince me to like Warner, but alas, she's done it. I don't like him, I just kind of understand him now, which I really appreciate before going into Unravel me. I can't wait to read Unravel me now! :D
  • Jessica (The Psychotic Nerd)
    Warner is a complete psychopath and is literally insane...Is it weird that I like him better than Adam?
    Reread. “Some days I wonder why I insist on keeping myself alive... I will give no one the satisfaction of my death.” So i am a huge Warner fan and this book was a sweet sweet treat! This explains his beyond creepy behavior in Shatter Me. Don't get me wrong, i have no problem with him being creepy and evil but it was still fun seeing his vulnerable side. I mean, come on! Who doesn't want to know what goes on in that psychopathic head of his? ...
  • Ari
    Oh, my dear Warner, I love you so much it hurts. (4.5 stars) I saw right through him.You see, I love it when my heart is right.. and right now it still loves Warner to pieces.Yes, he’s the bad guy.No, he doesn’t need to convince me otherwise.If I liked this amazing and complex character in Shatter Me, well now I feel like I’ve been bewitched by him, his dark mind, his fears, and his struggle. I repeat, Warner is not a good person, the world...
  • TheCrazyWorldOfABookLover
    God damnit Warner, you little bastard. Why'd you have to go and make me like you? “I almost forget that she still hates me, despite how hard I've fallen for her.And I've fallen.So hard.I've hit the ground. Gone right through it. Never in my life have I felt this. Nothing like this. I've felt shame and cowardice, weakness and strength. I've known terror and indifference, self-hate and general disgust. I've seen things that cannot be unseen.And y...
  • Ashwood (애쉬 우드).
    “Love is a heartless bastard.” This book definitely intrigued me. Being able to see the world through Warner’s eyes was not at all what I thought it would be. The world sees him as a detached, heartless, cruel, and obsessed monster when the truth is much more complicated than that. His life is a deadly chess game and the playing board is a landmine. Juliette turned his life upside down but also gave it meaning and hope. She’s his saving g...
  • Anne
    ⚫ THIS IS NOT A REVIEW. THIS IS A STORY. A TRAGEDY. Years ago when I was only but a young - and fairly impressionable too, fairly- girl, I met a boy. Dark and beautiful he was, intense too, and I unwittingly fell in love with him. Abominably madly, completely in love with him. That chapter of my life's been over for almost 4 years now, almost 4 years the story's been over, and still I can't forget him. I never will.✔ Reread. Again: Jan 31st...
  • Sarah
    I love Warner, he is adorable. Getting to see that there was a whole different side to him was good. I loved plain old evil Warner but knowing Warner has another side to him made me love him even more. I do believe that he loves Juliette and I want them to be together because they're actually exciting. Warner is my favourite character and he's the main reason why I love this series as much as I do. I preferred the writing in this because Warner's...
  • Claudia Ramírez
    Yes Warner, yes, I will marry you.I really liked this novella, and I'm glad I read it after Ignite Me, because I was discovering these great things about Warner at the same time Juliette was <3. And I just knew it! I knew Warner had so much more inside of him and this just made me love him more if that's even possible.
  • Jessica
    Reread Feb 2017 -- 4/5 stars after rereading itFirst Read June 2014 This is a first. I just gave this novella 5/5, but it's prequel (the 1st book in the series) a 4/5. So weird. Really excited for book 2!
  • Jeff
    Yaaaahhhhh!!!!*squeals*It's Warner everyone. Who doesn't want to read his POV?It's brilliant and has Warner's beautiful voice narrating, so what could go wrong??!!!.....Um.....IT"S BORING!!!That's the only thing. THE ONLY THING. I personally don't like these 1.5 thingamabob-books. What's the point of these??!! They're thin, easy to get through, and what's the point of reading a 100-200 page book that retells only two freaking parts of the story??...
  • Zain Otoom
    Poor Warner :( I really liked reading from his perspective. There's a lot we don't know about Warner, and it was very interesting and very sad to see his relationship with his dad. His dad just deserves a kick to his groin ^_^Also, definitely team Warner.
