Google+ YA Romantics: Countdown to Ignite Me!

Countdown to Ignite Me!


Welcome to The Countdown Giveaway for Ignite Me

I was excited that I got to see my friend Lauren from Love is Not a Triangle this past weekend. In addition to all the other bookish things we discussed, we had a long conversation about the Shatter Me trilogy. We talked a lot about our apprehensions about Ignite Me  and, though she and I have different hopes about how things work out -- she's a fan of guy-next-door Adam and, though I'd pick Adam if I were matchmaking for a friend of mine, I think that Warner is a better fit for Juliette. I mean, they're both a little crazy!

However, the point of these posts will be to distract all of us from thinking about the triangle. And the ending. All all that. 

I'll have a few posts this week about the trilogy, which will include trivia questions on Shatter Me and Unravel Me and chances to win a copy of the book, either ordered from Amazon or The Book Depository. Yes, this is open internationally :)

Today will be trivia questions. They're just for fun -- even if you get them wrong, you can still enter to win!

Question One:  Juliette's Craziest Metaphors
Juliette loves metaphors. I mean, she's crazy ... about them.

Which of these metaphorical statements did Juliette NOT make about her heart in either Shatter Me or Unravel Me?

A) My heart is a raging woodpecker.

B) My heart is thundering hoofbeats.

C) My heart is a water balloon exploding in my chest.

D) There are wirecutters carving holes in my heart.

Question Two: Juliette's Craziest Sensation Descriptions
Juliette is also very attuned to her feelings. Very very. She's hyper-aware of every single feeling, and often translates her emotional pain using very unusual imagery.

Which of these statements did Juliette NOT make in either Shatter Me or Unravel Me?

A) Someone is sticking forks in my back.

B) Blood is bleeding all over my mind.

C) The sky is raining bricks onto my skull.

D) Sharp knives are carving patterns all over my skin.

E) Every fist in the world has decided to punch me in the stomach.

F) My arms and legs are filled with plaster.

Answers way down at the bottom of the post!
Coming later this week -- quotes about Warner and Adam...


a Rafflecopter giveaway Answers: Juliette did not say B in question one, and D in question two.

  1. Oh man those were tough questions! I had no idea about either. I personally prefer to read about Warner (though I still haven't read the second book yet) but I also think he's a bit psycho so not really prepared for a relationship of any kind.

    1. Read the second book then because it's so going to change your mind. I didn't even like Warner before the second book but damn now I love him

  2. Oh boy, I don't remember any of those. lol How awesome that you got to see Lauren this weekend! i'M VERY NERVOUS TO READ THIS FINALE. i JUST FEEL LIKE IT WILL BE A DISAPPOINTMENT. Oh oops, sorry for the caps lock. I started to see reviews popping up on my Goodreads TL so I think I'll be steering clear of there for the next week.

  3. I'm not entering the giveaway since I'll be going to a booj signing, but I love this! I like Adam too, but I do think Warner is the better fit for Juliette. I'm all kinds of nervous about this last book, but I trust Mafi with whatever ending she's come up with.

  4. Super fun! I love when you do these!!! I still have to read these. Should I have confessed that? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  5. Bahaha...this is pure genius. I actually could see Juliette using ALL of those metaphors. :) How fun that you got to see Lauren! I am definitely Team Warner...you're right...they're both a little crazy and would work better together. And there's actually some passion there. I cannot wait for release day!

  6. Haha! The two educated guesses I made were completely wrong! I also agree with you Jen that Warner is the better match for Juliette. I feel like Adam is the 'safe' choice but I don't think he compliments her as well as Warner does.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I thought for sure I had these answers nailed down! ... and then I got them wrong hahaha.

    (Also, I'm with Lauren - Adam all the way!)

  8. OMG this is so hard. I could literally picture her using every single one of these. You're good!

  9. Haha, totally wrong on both, and wow - those are pretty crazy descriptions. I still haven't read this series, although I have a signed copy of Shatter Me that I won from you last year, So thanks again for that!!!! I've been saving it for when Ignite Me was about to release, and I plan to start by the end of the week. I already bought a Kindle copy of Unravel Me and both novellas, so now the only one I don't have is Ignite Me! Fingers crossed :)

  10. 1. I got only one right. Grr. 2. I love the way she writes. Makes me grin.

  11. Oh I can't wait to read this book. Your blog has given me great new books to read. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  12. What a great idea! And so fun! Okay, honestly, I had no freaking clue what the answers were. I have a horrible memory lol. But I love the series and I absolutely cannot wait for Ignite Me! Squeeee! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. So funny because last night I opened UNRAVEL ME back up and started skimming through it--of course re-reading Chapter 62 in ITS ENTIRETY first:) But I have NO idea about any of these quotes--I mean they all sound like Juliette! Still it serves as a reminder that to get the full effect when IGNITE ME releases in a few days, I think I better go back and do some reviewing:)

    And you know that I am totally with you on the Team Warner front :)

  14. Those were hard. I'll answer with my two favorites instead - C and C. Waterballoons and bricks, the most imaginative ones there. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  15. I got the first one but not the second one! I love her writing style and I can't wait for Ignite Me! Thank you

  16. I haven't started reading these books yet but I do have the first one on my bookshelf so I picked A for both answers.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Everyone's been making Ignite Me post lately and it's driving me insane! I can't wait for this book and every day reminder is not a good thing. Thankfully, it's coming out soon.
    I need a Warner fix as soon as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ha ha ha wow, did I ever get those questions wrong! That was a lot of fun though :) Can't wait till Ignite Me is out, it will be fun to read.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I've had the first book for so long now, but haven't read it. I feel like a loser. I'm going to read it in February or March though, and hopefully read the series within a small amount of time.

    ReplyDelete
  20. See.... I'm not the only one who is a fan of Adam! I haven't read Unravel Me yet so that could change, but I'm also pretty stubborn like that ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. What an awesome idea! I haven't read any of the books in this series yet. I figured I wait until it was finished, so I'm still really excited about this book's release.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I thought "There are wirecutters carving holes in my heart." was the wrong one for some reason! Reading these quotes out of context is sorta disconcerting!

    I don't think I've ever been excited for a book like I'm excited for Ignite Me-And I'm definitely shipping Warner and Juliette too! They are both CRAZY awesome. XD

    Can't wait for your next countdown post, Jen!

    ReplyDelete
  23. haha those quotes! They sound really weird isolated but they probably sound a lot better in context Like "someone is sticking forks in my back". By itself it's like, um, okay haha.

    So pumped for Ignite Me :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  24. I't time I read the both books again, I've completely forgotten everything!! I'm soooo excited for Ignite Me!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. What fun! Even though I got one wrong. lol Can't wait for Ignite Me too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh man, I've had Shatter Me sitting on my shelf gathering dust for a long time now. Hopefully I can get around to it soon - and at this rate, I can read the whole trilogy at once! ;)

  28. I initially thought A was the answer for the first question, lol! But I got the second right. :)
    Can't wait for the conclusion!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I got one right. ;) I am SO excited for Ignite Me, I can barely stand it. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh my God, I can't remember!
    I have to read the books again!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I thought the answers would have been D and A, the others sounded so right! I guess it's time for a re-read.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Got first question right and missed the 2nd one. Oh well.. Excited to get my hands on Ignite Me. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I didn't know those! I felt like she could have said all of them! I'm super excited for Ignite Me! I need to know what happens next! I'm still team Adam though, although Warner...I don't know anymore!
