Word Revel

Book blogger, recent Sociology grad in her twenties. Stares at labels when no books are in sight. Disproportionately reads YA. This is a companion blog to http://wordrevel.com.


I've been completely absorbed in the Shatter Me trilogy by Tahereh Mafi, even devouring the two novellas. I'm in the midst of Ignite Me right now though sadly, can't wait for it to end.


Somehow I expected a lot more action and explorations of the world than the trilogy offers. It has a very interesting premise as the book trailer conveys but so far I feel that the romance overshadows everything else a bit to much.


On the other hand, some of the readers who recommended the series to me absolutely adored the books precisely because of the romance. I think it really comes down to personal preference. I for one am particularly enamoured by the writing style.
