Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi

Destroy Me (Shatter Me, #1.5)Destroy Me by Tahereh Mafi
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Warner, Warner, Warner…

If you loved Shatter Me, you have to read this. Actually being inside of Warner's head is pretty much…creepy, sad, scary, painful, wondrous…all of the above.

Mafi did such a great job with this story. She was able to put in so much emotion into Warner's story, I don't know how someone could read this and not feel for him. He is full of so much pain, and he loves Juliette to a fault. As with Shatter Me, the writing is beautiful. The style was different since we are inside Warner's head instead of Juliette's, but no less powerful. We also see in this story that he is maybe not the monster of a person he tries to pretend he is, and the way he is falling apart over losing Juliette makes the title apt. I'm afraid she is going to ultimately be his downfall.
