Scarlet by Marissa Meyer


I had this book checked out at the library and ended up buying it so I could read it on vacation! And then my 70 year old grandma asked what I was reading and explaining that was a pretty interesting experience. Also all the people on the airplane kept trying to talk to me at all of the most intense parts and it made me want to stab them with a fork okay not really but actually yes really.

Rating: [5/5]

Reading Challenge: A book with a color in the title

Goodreads Summary: 

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.

Likes: I was really worried that Cinder and her story were going to be barely involved and I’d have to wait for forever to get resolution, but I was actually really impressed by the way that the author integrated the stories. The plot twists and the way the author took the fairy tale and made it her own were also really wonderful. I loved all the new characters too.

Dislikes: [SPOILERS] Scarlet and Wolf’s relationship felt a little bit unhealthy at times. I have a feeling it was just situational and that once their relationship is developed a little more, it’ll be fine. But some of the parts in this book reminded me a little of Edward and Bella in Twilight and how he was always talking about how he really wanted to kill her.

Tune in next week to read my review of Cress by Marissa Meyer!
