Review: Imagine Me by Tahereh Mafi

Synopsis:

The explosive finale to the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Shatter Me series.

Juliette Ferrars.

Ella Sommers.

Which is the truth and which is the lie?

Now that Ella knows who Juliette is and what she was created for, things have only become more complicated. As she struggles to understand the past that haunts her and looks to a future more uncertain than ever, the lines between right and wrong—between Ella and Juliette—blur. And with old enemies looming, her destiny may not be her own to control.

The day of reckoning for the Reestablishment is coming. But she may not get to choose what side she fights on.

Favorite Lines:

“To the world, she is formidable. To me? She is the world.”

“Imagine me
master of my own universe
I am everything I ever dreamed of”

“Here. This. My bones against his bones. This is my home,”

My Opinion:

Imagine Me is the last book in the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi. I wasn’t able to put this book down and finished it in one sitting. Originally, Mafi had stopped after the third book but I am so happy she picked the series back up and was able to continue it without it feeling forced.

The story follows Juliette/Ella, Kenji, and all their friends in the climax and conclusion of the war against the Reestablishment. I really love Juliette/Ella and Aaron/Warner as a couple. Reading about them was honestly my favorite part of this whole story. I do wish that there was more of them throughout, but I also understand why there wasn’t and that is just me being selfish. I also do with I had just seen more of Juliette/Ella as a whole because she is the main character but, again, I understand why we didn’t.

Also, as a total side note… Aaron/Warner could have given Juliette/Ella his jade ring?? I kept waiting for it to happen and it never did.

There were some parts of this book where I think they could have been expanded on. For instance, I think there could have been more about Emmaline. I know she wasn’t a main character but she was pivotal to the storyline and I think it would have been really interesting to read more about her. Mafi also brought in more characters without giving them much detail to the point that they were almost unnecessary except to see the end of them.

In my selfishness, I would have liked to see more of an epilogue and being able to see how the world is going to be now that the war is over.

Summary:

Overall, I really loved this book and this whole series. I am sad to see it go and will definitely be doing some rereading in the future. All of my comments that can be perceived as negative are actually coming from me being a selfish romantic. I highly recommend this book and the Shatter Me series as a whole if you love romance, action, dystopian societies, and the supernatural. Happy reading, everyone!
