Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Title: Scarlet
Author: Marissa Meyer
Published: February 5th, 2013 by Feiwel and Friends.

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison--even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

My Musings 

ANOTHER GREAT BOOK BY MARISSA MEYER. My god I bow down to her talent. At first I was kind of reluctant to have another set of characters in the story because Cinder and Kai, but then as things progressed I found that every person was necessary for the greater good of Earth. (heh) 

Cinder has a special place in my heart but I have to say that Scarlet is a really great character. Initially I thought she was a farmer girl, who was all about her tomatoes and stuff but then we find out that her grandmother is missing and we get to see how determined Scarlet is, she will do anything to find her and it's really refreshing to see a teenager so close to a member of their family in YA. Usually the young girl or boy is so infatuated with their new love that there isn't really a family relationship. She is also very sarcastic and that is a nice balance to Wolf's more quiet personality. 

Wolf was a very sweet man and a very complex character, my feelings toward him constantly changed, I swooned because of his actions, then I raged because how dare he do what he did but he was mostly cute, so I am going to leave it that. Carswell Thorne, oh *sigh*. New YA crush, like okay it is constantly said that he is handsome and even Kai hates him when he sees his photo (HAHAHAHAH) but it's his personality that I love the most, his sense of humor, his wit, he always has a comeback and I do love his relationship with Cinder, they are like a brother/sister. 

There is always something happening in this book and I don't really know how can an author pull that off, because HOW DO YOU COME UP WITH CONSTANT STUFF?! But maybe that is what the multiple points of view are for in these series. I admire her ability to come up with more and more stuff. I could not put this book down, that's how good it was. The fact that I keep talking about the characters and what I liked most about them and am unable to keep this review profesional-ish should tell you that the world building in this saga is unbelievable. I don't find myself second guessing or doubting things as they happen, they seem possible and that is fundamental when reading a story. Oh! I want to emphasize on one thing: Things are never predictable in The Lunar Chronicles, and I LOVE THAT. I love to gasp and to hold a ~book (tablet if you will) to my chest because 'I can't believe thit is actually happening'. 

I could write more of an essay on this book but I'm not going to. Have you read this book? What are your thoughts on it? Have they become your faves just like they are mine now? Tell me everythinggggggg. Until next time!

  1. YAY for loving SCARLET. I knew you would :D

    I love how everyone adored Thorne, haha. He's gorgeous, I must admit. His sass is my favourite aspect of his personality, and even though I like Cinder and his friendship, I DID ship them a little bit. But only a little bit because Cinder and Kai MUST be endgame in this series. Seriously.

    I definitely understand your thoughts on Wolf! I was so in love with him, and then you think he's kinda evil, and then everything happens and just *swoon* I happily say that he is my favourite of the three Lunar Chronicles boys so far ;D

    I really need to read CRESS because apparently Thorne has a huge role in that one, and I'd love to see more of him! Plus, it's a retelling of Rapunzel, which should be epic!

    Lovely review, dearie ^.^ <3

    1. Omggggggg what do you mean you shipped Thorne with Cinder! Thankfully you said 'a little bit', I was about to freak out here because CINDER AND KAI FOR LIFE. Oh, man. You SO need to read Cress ajkdsbasjkdbkjaba. *whistles*

      Wolf gave me headaches, because I'd make up my mind about him, like I decided I'd love him and then boom! I'd hate him. I think Kai is my favorite of the boys. What is it with me and princes!? UGH.

      Like I said in the other post YOU MUST READ CRESS LIKE NOW. I promise to hold your hand and hug you and jump with you.

      Thank youuuuuuuuu for taking the time to comment! <3
