I am really sorry if this review doesn't make any sense. I am really tired but I just wanted to write this before I forgot what I wanted to say, so it may slightly over the place, but considering I think theres about four people who actually read my reviews, I think it'll be fine :P
Anyway, I got this book a few weeks ago since I had been seeing it around Instagram and Booktube for a while now (also because seirously, that cover is just perfect). So the other day I finally picked it up and considering I am not a big fan of the Dystopian books, I am pretty surprised with how much I enjoyed it.
I thought the characters were great, and the story line was fantastic although I find it a little bit hard to explain exactly what it is about as I am still a little bit unsure. This was a Young Adult, dystopian romance novel, and I really enjoyed that there was more romance than there was action. I know there would be a lot of people who would disagree with that, but for someone who is a big romance junkie, this book was perfect.
I thought that he writing was good, but I felt there were a lot of things left unanswered considering the first book of a series, is usually the one to set the story up. In Shatter Me, you don’t really get any history as to why the world is the way it is, so I think it would have been better with a little more back story behind it. In saying that however, I did really like how (AUTHOR) described what the world was like and what was different about it, I could definitely picture it in my mind and I love that.
The writing itself took me a bit to get used to as it is written as a journal (but without the “dear diary” stuff) so is has a lot of words and sentences crossed out throughout the book. Not going to lie, this bugged me a lot, but I dealt with it.
I will definitely be reading the next one, as the ending to Shatter Me was where it just started to get interesting. I would definitely recommend this book though, especially for someone who is either just starting out in the Dystopian world, or someone like me who isn’t a big fan of the Dystopians.
Let me know in the comments what you thought! I’d love to hear your opinions. Also, how awesome was Kenji? I loved him so much, absolutely hilarious and adorable.
