Juliette Ferrars thought she'd won. She took over Sector 45, was named the new Supreme Commander, and now has Warner by her side. But she's still the girl with the ability to kill with a single touch—and now she's got the whole world in the palm of her hand. When tragedy hits, who will she become? Will she be able to control the power she wields and use it for good?
"Restore Me (Shatter Me, #4)" Reviews
Here's the notes I typed up for my second predictions video!
*pg 42 is the page where the POV changes and all it says is JULIETTE
-t is REALLY COMIN FOR MY WIG HUH
-Juliette is kidnapped? Juliette uses her power too much and passes out?
-At the end of 31 it switches back to her POV
-Oh wait nevermind it literally only means the POV changes
*"It made me wish I’d had a sister. Or a mother. Someone to learn from and lean on. A woman to teach me how to be brave in this body, among these men"
-Juliette gets friends!!!!!
-I want juliette to get a makeover and people who give her boy advice and talk with her about girl stuff and ugh girls
-She was never this way with the twins it always felt so awkward
*Will Kenji a love interest?
-kenji totes flirts with international people
-is the ex-girlfriend his?????
-tahereh said kenji doesn’t get anyone in this book but thats ok we'll have a slow burn over a 3 book arc it's what he deserves
-T said it’s someone we don’t already know which is fair bc everyone we already know he said is too much like a sister to him so it would be weird
-Wait this also proves that him and warner aren’t a thing. Hm.
*Juliette’s favorite color is black? Sounds fake but ok
*JAMES AND WARNER JAMES AND WARNER JAMES AND WA
-“were you CRYING?” ummmm just fucking punch me in the lung next time
-honestly is every character in this book just gonna witness a warner breakdown why we gotta do him so dirty like that
-james is gonna be so mad when they find out they’re brothers because in unravel me he gets pissed about not being told stuff/getting left out
-I don’t think it’ll happen this soon
*WARNER’S EMO POWERS IN HIS POV
-THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE THING I’M EXCITED FOR AND SHE HASN’T SHOWN IT YET IN THE SAMPLER SO I WAS WORRIED BUT YIPPEE I CANT WAIT TO GET CUTE WARNETTE SCENES WHERE WARNER IS AWARE OF JULIETTE'S FEELINGS AND ASKS HER ABOUT IT AND WANTS TO VALIDATE THAT SHE FEELS OKAY ASFUGHJKL;;
*JULIETTE DRINKING ADFSGUHDIJ’K
-I always wanted to write this but idk
-Juliette is happy drunk / warner is emo drunk
-Warner super concerned taking care of her
*More people with powers? [we been knew reaction pic]
-I honestly couldn’t guess any of the powers without just reciting powers from twilight or something lol
*Kenji calling warner a dick and warner wanting to punch him
-Tahereh is teasing so much kenji & warner dialogue that it makes me wonder about them. Why are they together so much. Why does warner trust kenji. What. Help. Slow down
*THE KIND OF MUSIC WARNER LISTENS TO
-Either smooth jazz or beyonce, there’s no in between
*What warner did to be leader of sector 45
-Pressure waves dude???
-No other predictions. no clue. help.
-I honestly can’t tell you what state my anxiety will be in if there’s a cliffhanger
-I think it’ll mirror other books where there’s certainly stuff unsolved but it’s not like someone dies then it’s like “aight, see ya next year”
*She keeps hinting about deaths but tbh I don’t think anything will happen until book 6
-She did this with ignite me thinking big deaths would happen but it was nothing
-I think she teases to create angst and fear but we’ll be fine
-I trust her (t don’t let me down)
*Another chapter 55 (◕‿◕✿)
*lgbt characters !!!!!!!!! kenji, Brendan, Winston, whatever mans kenji gets
*nO ADAM AND KENJI BRO MOMENTS HAHAHAHA
-I ALWAYS thought kenji would hate adam
-I’m lowkey happy this book follows my predictions with characters and stuff
-Kenji roasts adam at every opportunity
*“kenji feels sore” uhhhhHHHHHHHH WHAT HE DOIN
*wARNER SPEAKING SEVERAL LANGUAGES UUGHGHHHHH WHAT A MAN!!!!!! WHAT A MAN, MY DUDES!!!!!!!!!!!!
-Seven languages? Oh my lORDDT
-I’m not even gonna predict what they are but hooooleeeee mollleeeeeey
-We get to see him speak “a couple” ugghhhh I can’t wait to see juliette hear him break into Arabic or something and she’s just like !!!!!!!!!!!!
*When asked about juliette and adam’s friendship growing, tahereh said “he’s a part of the story and there’s more left to come” and im just like noooooooo
-At the same time, juliette is so forgiving I don’t doubt they’ll finally talk
*PPL ROAST ME ABOUT AN ADAM REDEMPTION ARC BUT JUST THINK ABOUT WARNER AND ADAM’S FRIENDSHIP AND ADAM BEING SOMEONE WHO CAN SAVE THEM ALL IF HE PROJECTS HIS POWER AND DISABLES OTHERS’. I’M JUST SAYIN G
*WARNER NAKED CRYING ON THE GROUND
-WARNER HAS ANXIETY??? PLS LET WARNER HAVE ANXIETY I WANT ANXIETY REP
-But at the same time I don’t because #tooreal
-I feel like she posted this quote so out of context and it could be nothing but I leapt to the worst conclusions
-Why isn’t juliette there? Did they have a fight? Did something happen to her? Did he read his dad’s journals?
-DOES KENJI SEE HIS SCARS?
-Is warner completely naked?? I’m so confused. I’M SO CONFUSED
*Kenji calling cute warner constantly mY HEArt
*WHY IS JULIETTE’S POV SPOILERY
-Is she kidnapped??? Is she miserable??? Is a character with mind control powers harming her??? Is she separated from warner? Like WHAT??? It’s so spoilery that she can’t even find one quote to give us?
*A “badass quote” from juliette is “too spoilery” buT WHY
-“if I stop moving, my mind might kill me” that’s literally what warner said during his snippet on page 84…… bruh
*THE VALENTINES DAY SNIPPET
-WARNER’S POV SEXYTIMES
-I was legit sobbing I was so happy for the first warnette kiss in 4 years
-(lowkey wish there was more dialogue and description but that feels almost gluttonous at this point because we are so fortunate for having it at all)
*Tahereh said she “likes” the ending of restore me
-I don’t think we’ll have a cliffhanger, like I said.
-She said “I don’t think it’s sad” so I hope it’s empowering like previous books
-T said juliette is her favorite, ever, by the end of RM, so I think she’s fine and she doesn’t die clearly lol
*AN EX-GIRLFRIEND COMES INTO PLAY
-WHOSE??? WHAT IS THE TRUTH??????
-WHO IS GONNA CLAIM THIS WOMAN
-Warner? Is it one of the overseas people? MY MANS IS A HOE!!!!! He out here saying “I didn’t have friends” but he actually meant “I had friends with benefits”
-Kenji? Adam? Castle? I literally wish it were anyone else lol I’m solid on my theory of juliette being warner’s first everything but the internet and the author say otherwise
*It’s confirmed that juliette MEETS her parents!!!!!! Oufhaouhilvgudyahisjkop;pzfx;ia I’MS O EXCITED SHE’S GONNA ROAST THEM I’M REA DY FOR HER TO ROOOAST THEM!!
-Also warner said in unravel me he wants to kill whoever made her miserable as a kid so I want warner to threaten them or pull a gun or something and im just ready for there to be tea
-The biggest question I have—more than what warner did to be leader of sector 45—is what her parents are like. Not even just physically and with their personalities. I’m so split on wondering if they’re sorry or if they still hate her. Are they happy without her? Do they regret it? Will they accept her as she is now? Will they learn to trust her?
-I was shocked we didn’t get one before this book.
-Whose POV? We get a kenji short story so maybe from him. Since we get warner POV in the book, it’s not as important anymore as a separate novella. So it’s gotta be kenji, adam, castle, Anderson, someone, idk. james? new characters?
-Maybe it’ll have bonus content from previous books in the trilogy (LS PS LP PL SP L S PL SPL S PLS PLS PL SPL S PLS PL S PLS)
*The bird symbolism comes back I’m emo
-Juliette flying (ie. Airplanes, she becomes the bird herself? Idk)
-I always thought it was so weird that the “the bird I imagined is the bird on adam’s chest” conflict/coincidence was just randomly dropped.
-Does juliette become adam’s bird?
-DOES MY GIRL FINALLY GET TO SEE A BIRD???? AHHHHHHH
--i used to want ignite me to end with her seeing a bird so maybe i can finally have my dream come true and one of these books has her seeing a bird in it
*Juliette’s powers are still growing
-Ok….. honestly….. can she rest
-I know I’ll get dragged for this but like her power is already unrealistic with how much she’s able to project and idk how much more believable it can be
-Unless it has to do with killing people and not physically moving stuff like castle then idk. I’m conflicted about this one.
*More about warner’s mom, it’s ok I’m just gonna cry over here
*Warner’s virginity better not be a hot topic in this book because I am tired and I’m so happy not knowing
-Same how I feel with sex scenes like ty for having them but I don’t need to be ~too~ well-acquainted with their anatomy, ya know? pls no sarah j maas porn in these woods, thank you
*There’s unnoticed details and easter eggs throughout the trilogy
-NOW I GOTTA REREAD THEM ALL EVEN MORE AND SLAVE AWAY ABOUT THEORIES AND I’M SO TIRED UWUGHGHHHH
*Juliette and warner get to travel!!!!!!!
-Now that warner knows how to drive a helicopter I just imagine them being like “hey Barbie wanna go for a ride” “sure ken” “hop in” then I don’t wanna live forever starts playing because wasn’t there a helicopter scene in fifty shades
*Warner and his 5 o’clock shadow sounds fake bc in unravel me when he was being held captive there was no beard [angery frog meme]
-Why my mans so stressed he aint shavin????????? He needs a hug and 3 advil
*SHE EITHER GETS A HAIRCUT OR A TATTOO IN THIS BOOK
-I’m 50/50. On one hand, she mentioned in ignite me that she needs a haircut, but I really really reall yreally hate haircuts in books so I’m salty
-Also Ive always wished she’d get a tattoo bc it’s so empowering and she has a lot of mantras she lives by and warner is such a cheerleader for them and he would love it too
*WARNER IS LITERALLY THE EMBODIMENT OF CAR RADIO ABOUT OUTRUNNING SILENCE OAUHOSJIKO;DI;FSLDGYHIJ MY MANS IS EMO AND I LOVE AND SUPPORT HIM UNCONDITIONALLY
-I’m concerned that he and juliette aren’t together more in this book. She’s in a meeting he’s not invited to??? Aaron warner? More like aaron burr, not being in the room where it happened
So the sampler for Restore Me came out, giving us 31 beautiful pages of content. I filmed a reaction and theories video, but here's my notes about it.
Restore Me title significance
-restoring the sector
-restoring life to the people
-restoring justice to the country
BUT ALSO restoring warner back to a healthy self because he’s grieving
*I just love powerful juliette who takes no crap from anyone and isn’t afraid to shoot a gun
*KENJI REFERRING TO WARNER AS HER BOYFRIEND
*there’s something really hyperbolic about the very first scene that makes it feel fake and idk if it’s me or the book. the fact that the buzzcut happens and then it's not mentioned again afterward is shaky to me, so I hope someone comments on it later on. otherwise it still kinda seems unnecessary?
*warner holding a gun to kenji’s head i’m SCREAMING
*Warner pronouncing “idiot”
*i was dreading the buzzcut scene but i dont mind it
—warner cutting of the hair was symbolic, not just something kenji did jokingly. i don't hate it anymore.
*warning calling himself hideous / says “i hope you’ll still love me" HURTS ME DEEPLY. and also, juliette never counters him and supports him?? where's my loving and supportive power couple??
*I was anticipating this book would be about their wholesome love story (until "tragedy strikes") but it’s already emo on page 1 so finE
*WARNER’S TRYING TO BE NICER EEEPPPP
*when they were about to kiss oh LORDT
—tHE LINE ABOUT “his sharp gasps for air” i NEED AN INHALER
*WARNER BREAKS APART THE KISS TO GO SHAVE HIS HEAD I WAS DONE SO DIRTY
*"we’ve held memorials for people who passed away” so what about warner’s parents?
—i’ve almost written fanfics about this. i wanna know so bad if they did anything for leila.
*so far, this isn't what i expected at all—i figured juliette would fight her way to victory over the rest of the country, but not internationally. it's already so complex and setting up to be so wide-reaching
—the mind games, though. whoa. it’s gonna be so cool and smart how sector 45 leaders deal with manipulative international assholes
*I predict Castle is gonna grow to be a new fave (supporting juliette, getting her and adam to make up, learning more about his relationship with kenji)
*WE’VE NEVER SEEN JULIETTE FROM WARNER’S POV AFTER THEY CONFIRM THEIR LOVE FOR EACH OTHER AND I’M W E A K
—she’s so beautiful and caring and ahhhh
—i’m really looking forward to scenes where warner talks about feeling her emotions, i think that’ll be really cute and ugghhhh i want it
—the scene where juliette crawls into his arms when he comes to bed late is what i think about every day. just soft cuddles and love. it’s what’s been replaying in my head for 4 years.
*warner's inner turmoil about losing his dad and not knowing if he should be upset is so complex and compelling. there’s already so much depth to this to explore and there’s no way i can make a single video encompassing all my thoughts about every little facet but I LOve THIS
*at first i was terrified of warner’s identity crisis but i actually think it’s so smart. i was worried about where this would go because ignite me ended well with everyone happy, but surprisingly, i think this is a very organic place for his mind to be. it’s not forced at all, and although it worries me that he’s not eating or whatever, it gives me room to theorize how he’ll recover from it. like… BUILDING A RELATIONSHIP WITH ADAM
*Warner was being emo and said “The last words I ever spoke to my father—“ then it cuts off and i nEED TO KNOW WHAT WERE THE WORDS OH MY LORDT
*he hides his emotions around juliette and i’m tired of it. i hate it.
—is it him hiding it from her, or his natural response to cover his emotions because of his mom telling him to hide his heart?
*I used to be so worried about why warner’s POV is here but I think it makes sense now just to flesh out his inner turmoil that he doesn’t share entirely with Juliette. The biggest person he can relate to in the series is Adam. I think it’s important that we see his head space as much as Juliette. Also, he knows so much about the other supreme commanders and I think his memories and perspective will shed a lot of light on the new characters and world building
*BRENDAN AND WINSTON ARE INSEPARABLE!!!!!!
—brendan and kenji, my bisexual kings. i called it.
*juliette and kenji having a routine of eating breakfast and then taking a walk together actually completes my soul
*warner & not enjoying food hurts me
—a theory i’ve had: juliette teaches him to love himself and take care of himself-- but we don't see this :/
—the cookie w/ knife and fork lmao
*i’m not mad about adam. drag me.
—redemption arc: he didn’t deserve villainization (reread shatter me. he’s the good guy. he trained her how to love herself and was first to tell her that she’s not a monster)
—she owes him nothing and she still goes out of her way to ask if he’s okay i loVE JULIETTE
*one of my favorite things about juliette is how she sees the good in people and wants to be optimistic, but i see how that can harm her in this book. warner has always said to shoot first, and i think we’re gonna see that with the international leaders and she’s gonna have to learn to be more ruthless. they’re acting really sinister but she’s naive and happy about it, and i don’t want her getting hurt
*The tentative and subtle relationship between Warner and Delalieu warms my soul
—i never even thought about juliette inheriting them (actually i did, but i assumed warner wouldn’t care that she saw them)
—ANDERSON’S JOURNALS OMMGGGG. i’ve always been curious about an anderson backstory and i really really really want more into his mind. (info about why he’s so cruel? why he was with adam’s mom? info info info i want it)
*Oceania: I wonder if the family of the supreme commander are gonna be horrible or on sector 45’s side
-why would warner dread meeting them?
-is he “friends” with anyone there? what happened to them as kids? (warner’s virginity??)
-if they’re good, why does he dread meeting them?
—why does warner hate that they’re coming so much?? why is it disregarding and entitled?
So far, I would rate this five stars if I could. And that's not just because it's a Tahereh Mafi book--trust me, I was worried about this book. But everything so far is done really smartly and anything I'm upset about is almost entirely driven by the fact that it's not matching up with my expectations, which is an entirely unfounded criticism to make, so i'm withholding it and getting over it.
I NEED MOOOOOOOORE!!!!!
Well. Here we are again. I missed you, my babies. It's overdue we meet again.
Today I woke up at 10 AM to my friend (hi Olivia) spam texting me my name over and over, and from that moment, I knew. There was Mafi news today. I was thinking maybe a novella. Maybe a rewrite from Warner's POV. Maybe one sequel. But three books added? I didn't hear anything in any of my classes today. I've cried on and off all day. I can't focus on my homework, can't do anything except refresh Twitter. Only five hours after learning the news about the new book, I filmed a reaction and my theories for the sequel, which totaled over an hour of footage.
I've been waiting so long for this. And since i've been so calm throughout the duration of this review, allow me to release my true feelings:

Oh my god I was hooked
TWs: mention of paste abuse, mention of alcoholism, alcohol abuse, meds abuse, transphobic comments @ 90% (I don't know the exact page)
Me: I don't know are we really sure that expanding this series is necessary
Book: I'm going to have Juliette and Warner's PoV
MORE WARNER OMG. CRYING.
RESTORE ME BECAUSE I AM DECEASED.
Here is more info on the three new books in the Shatter Me series!
