You've Seen Me

« Hayden waits until he’s sure he has all their attention, then says: “Would you rather die… or would you rather be unwound?” Esme is the first to break through the firewall of silence. “Die,” she says. “No question.” And Nasim says, “Die.” And Lizbeth says, “Die.” And the answers start to come faster. “Die.” “Die.” “Die.” Everyone answers, and not a single one of them chooses unwinding. » - Unwholly, p. 384-385

Neal Shusterman, Unwind

That’s what law is: educated guesses at right and wrong.

UnWind by Neal Shusterman

UNSOULED WAS SO FREAKIN’ AMAZING I AM JUST LIKE

STUNNED

No one knows how it happens. No one knows how it’s done. The harvesting of Unwinds is a secret medical ritual that stays within the walls of each harvesting clinic in the nation. In this way it is not unlike death itself, for no one knows what mysteries lie beyond those secret doors either.

What does it take to unwind the unwanted? It takes twelve surgeons, in teams of two, rotating in and out as there medical specialty is needed. It takes nine surgical assistants and four nurses. It takes three hours.

Roland is fifteen minutes in.

unwind by neal shusterman

"When, she wonders, did she stop being a child? The law says it was when she turned eighteen, but the law doesn’t know her."

Unwind by Neal Shusterman

Boo, whatchoo readin'? X)

I’m reading Unwholly the sequel to Unwind.

I SUGGEST YOU READ IT RIGHT NOW. Unwind is just, it’s so intense. It messes with your emotions and makes you think of things that you rather not think about, but then you have to think about and makes everything gray instead of black and white and leaves you thinking about it for days, months after it’s over and done with.

THAT IS WHAT I’M READING.

If you’ve never read Unwind then you need to get on that right now.

❝ At last, he allows himself the wonderful luxury of hope. ❞
Neal Shusterman, from Unwind
(via bunsofcheese)
❝ Statistically speaking, there’s a better chance that some part of me will go on to greatness somewhere in the world. I’d rather be partly great than entirely useless. ❞
Unwind (the most messed up, yet, genius YA book ever written).

I finished Unwind, read an entire different book, yet I still can’t get over my feelings.

i just can’t.

FUUUUUUU

HOW COULD THEIR PARENTS DO THAT. HOW COULD THEY EVEN THINK OF DOING THAT.

Like I feel even WORSE for Risa. She was sent to be unwound because of budget cuts. She doesn’t even have parents, but the damn government. BUDGET CUTS. Just because she wasn’t the best student, the best pianist, the best ward, she’s sent to the chop shop (the fuckin’ chop shop. that’s what they call it, god).

And then Lev. Oh Lev. Everything that you went through. You poor thirteen year old. You were raised to be slaughtered. YOU WANTED TO BE UNWOUND. And then, the meaning of your life just shatters and what are you left with? WHAT ARE YOU LEFT WITH.

AND THEN THE STORKING. THE BABIES. CONNOR TOTALLY TAKING THE BABY. YOU ARE. OMG STOP UGH CONNOR. YOU WERE THE ONE OUT OF THE THREE WHO FELT LEAST USEFUL YET YOU RAN AND YOU FUCKING BAMF GOD. YOU JUST LOOK AT YOU NOW.

AND THEN CY-FI. GOD “PLLEEEAASSSE DON’T UNWIND MEEE DON’T UNWIND ME. I’M SORRY, DON’T UNWIND MEEEE”

THEN THEN THEN THEN 

roland

roland.

no one likes

roland

but no one deserves that

no one.

omg

AND THEN IN THE END THEY’RE ALL IMPORTANT, THEY’VE ALL MADE A DIFFERENCE THEY’RE NO LONGER JUST DISCARDED CHILDREN BUT NEEDED BY OTHERS AND GOD

OMG

WHY

UGH

THIS BOOK

IS GENIUS

I WANT THE DAMN SEQUEL NOW

my goal is to bring the Unwind fandom to life.

The Hunger Games Recommendation List:

➵ If you liked The Hunger Games, I’m sure you’ll enjoy these books. There are plenty more books just as awesome as THG, but these eight books all pertain to the same type of book the THG series is—young adult and science fiction (some dystopian, some not) and are, of course, all great reads. Enjoy.
