'“We’re running out of time," he said.

As if time were the kind of thing you could run out of, as if it were measured into bowls that were handed to us at birth and if we ate too much or too fast or right before jumping into the water then our time would be lost, wasted, already spent.

But time is beyond our finite comprehension. It’s endless, it exists outside of us; we cannot run out of it or lose track of it or find a way to hold on to it. Time goes on even when we do not.'

Welcome to the world of Tahereh Mafi - author, expert torturer and heart ripper. Once you enter you can never turn back. Your heart will break, your emotions will explode, your brain will melt and you will have grey hair by the time you're in your early 20's.

So Juliette is part of our lovely band of merry rebels. But tragedy strikes when she finds out a horrible secret (which has something to do with Adam...!) that sends her spiralling into a world of guilt, heartbreak and despair:

Poor baby.

War is going on.
Kenji is being devilish, smart-ass and amazing (as per usual)
Adam is seriously too hot for his own good.
Castle is like an over-zealous and cuddly version of Dr. Frankenstein.
James makes you sob and wish he was your brother.

And as for the famous Chapter 62...
"I want to be the friend you fall hopelessly in love with. The one you take into your arms and into your bed and into the private world you keep trapped in your head. I want to be that kind of friend," he says. "The one who will memorise the things you say as well as the shape of your lips when you say them. I want to know every curve, every freckle, every shiver of your body, Juliette-"



Who is saying this to Juliette?
What happens after he says this?

All I'll say is that it is:
- hot
- hot
- hot
- hot
- fangirl worthy
- hot
- squeal worthy
- hot
- hot
- hot, hot, hot, HOT

A few random points:
- Juliette uses a gun. She shoots a VIP
- Adam resorts to begging
- Warner likes puppies and his actual name isn't Warner
- Adam and Warner have something in common besides liking Juliette
- Juliette makes friends!
- Kenji has a serious side *shock*
- Many people get maimed/shot in this book
- Hearts will be broken
- People will kiss
- New powers will be discovered
- You will die from the emotional torment

So grab the book today and enjoy the Rollercoaster of YA Death which is Tahereh's amazing storytelling!! :D

  1. Wow! Nice review. I'm reading this one right now. So far so good. Can't wait to finish it and get a review up! Love the gifs :). I actually read chapter 62 while still in the bookstore because I had heard so much and wanted to be in the know. Even though I don't care for that character yes it was very steamy!
