This week pick is: Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi.

In Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me, Juliette escaped from The Reestablishment by seducing Warner—and then putting a bullet in his shoulder. But as she’ll learn in Destroy Me, Warner is not that easy to get rid of. . .

Back at the base and recovering from his near-fatal wound, Warner must do everything in his power to keep his soldiers in check and suppress any mention of a rebellion in the sector. Still as obsessed with Juliette as ever, his first priority is to find her, bring her back, and dispose of Adam and Kenji, the two traitors who helped her escape. But when Warner’s father, The Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment, arrives to correct his son’s mistakes, it’s clear that he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner simply cannot allow.

Tahereh has a way with words that just sucks you in and when I first read Shatter Me, I was hooked. When I read Destroy Me I knew that I would read anything she writes. This book gave me a kick in the feels and started my rule of not picking teams without reading at least two books from a trilogy.

What are one of your favorite reads?


  1. My husband just bought mt Shatter Me for Christmas so I'm really looking forward to finally reading this series, because everyone seems to love it!

    1. Eee! I hope you love like I do! It takes a bit to get to use, with the cross out but Tahereh just has a way with words that you can look past it. Enjoy!

  2. I looooove this series. I have been thinking about re-reading the entire thing because all the feels and swoons it contains, but I'm not sure if I have the time for that. Blogging makes re-reading things hard (at least for me). This was definitely a fantastic pick!!

    1. I definitely know what you mean. With blogging, everything I read goes to the review pile so it makes it hard to reread. I'm certainly hoping to find a way to change that this year since I have a few I want to reread. But if you do end up rereading, enjoy!


Thanks so much for passing by and for commenting. I read and appreciate each and every comment.
