“Imagine me 
master of my own universe
I am everything I ever dreamed of”

I’m truly ashamed of how long it took me to read this. With COVID-19 and working from home, I have no excuse for reading 2 books in the last 4 months of WFH. Still, I’m glad I got this finished before I head back into a new normal daily grind and put this beloved series to rest.

“It’s not insane to imagine that sometimes even horrible people are searching for a way out of their own darkness.”

 

After spending the better part of the last year moping since the release of Restore Me, I’ve been anticipating reading this. I needed answers for the excruciating cliffhanger Tahereh Mafi left us with and Defy Me had all the answers.

After expecting the series to be over after Ignite Me and accepting it (for almost 4 years, might I add), Restore Me swept in and ruined me. Okay, okay, I’m not ruined but my heart hurts and this book ripped open wounds I never thought I’d have.

Book Quotes

Book Quote of the Week

“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”

“You can’t touch me,” I whisper. I’m lying, is what I don’t tell him. He can touch me, is what I’ll never tell him. Please touch me, is what I want to tell him.
