Book Review: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

Book Review: Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi

How on earth can one review this book? Seriously. How do you review when the feels are one billion but the story itself was a biiit meh? *sigh* I’m conflicted, but overall, I was very pleased with this series ending.

Critique came mostly from the excessive use of similies and metaphors, and the lack of world building. In Shatter Me it never bothered me. The similies and metaphors I found quite beautiful because it fit so well with the main character, Juliette. Someone who’s been locked up in an asylum in total isolation for almost a year has got to be unique. Through her narration […]
