Unite Me [Shatter Me #1.5 & 2.5]
by Tahereh Mafi

Perfect for fans of Tahereh Mafi’s New York Times bestselling Shatter Me trilogy, this book collects her two companion novellas, Fracture Me and Destroy Me, in print for the first time ever. It also features an exclusive look into Juliette’s journal and a preview of Ignite Me, the hotly anticipated final novel of the series.

Destroy Me tells the events between Shatter Me and Unravel Me from Warner’s point of view. Even though Juliette shot him in order to escape, Warner can’t stop thinking about her—and he’ll do anything to get her back. But when the Supreme Commander of The Reestablishment arrives, he has much different plans for Juliette. Plans Warner cannot allow.

Fracture Me is told from Adam’s perspective and bridges the gap between Unravel Me and Ignite Me. As the Omega Point rebels prepare to fight the Sector 45 soldiers, Adam's more focused on the safety of Juliette, Kenji, and his brother. The Reestablishment will do anything to crush the resistance . . . including killing everyone Adam cares about.

The Shatter Me series is perfect for fans who crave action-packed young adult novels with tantalizing romance like Divergent and The Hunger Games. This captivating story, which combines the best of dystopian and paranormal, was praised as “a thrilling, high-stakes saga of self-discovery and forbidden love” by Ransom Riggs, bestselling author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
I couldn't resist putting this one on my Wishlist Wednesday this week. Recently I've really been into the Shatter Me trilogy, having read the first two books within a month of each other (which is really rare for me ... I'm terrible at finishing series or trilogies (it took me over two years to finish The Hunger Games trilogy!). This has really got me hooked though, and I couldn't resist reading the second book so soon after the first. The only reason I haven't read book three yet is because I'm still waiting for my copy to arrive – hopefully it will be here later this week.
And then I will get my hands on this beautiful thing! I'm really looking forward to reading something from Warner's point of view – I'm hoping it will help me to understand his character better and help me decide about whether or not I actually like him!!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

I've heard this series is amazing and I've been planning to read it too. When series are too long I don't usually go for the companion novellas, but when the series is that good, I can't help it. So go for them!
