Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) Reviews
Even better than CINDER! I could NOT put it down yesterday. And when I was forced to put it down (yes, FORCED), I could NOT stop thinking about it. It was absolutely amazing. Beautiful and heartbreaking and action-packed and just...wow. Can't wait for the next book!!!
This series is adorable. I'm not sure how else to put it- but it's come a long way and been a pleasant surprise. I love where it's going! In general- it's not a super emotional series so far, but I'm definitely invested in Cinder's journey throughout the books.
Obviously this book brings in a new main character based off of Red Riding Hood. I liked Scarlet and her story- and Wolf was alright. I don't think I was as connected to her story as I was Cinder's - but it was still fun to try and figure ...more
How in the world do people rate this book any lower than a five? Seriously, I'm over here loving Scarlet and her "alpha" personality and everything that she stands for. How do people think she is annoying?
This was me this whole book:
Like literally constantly sucking in a breath and holding it, then after I have processed what happened, I do it again. So again, why you be mad about this installment? Was it because it wasn't only Cinder and Kai's point of views anymore? Scarlet ...more
I put off reading this for like two years because I really didn't like Cinder, but holy crap. I liked this 382827282x more than I liked Cinder. Wow. Wowwwwww.
Actual rating 4.5 Stars
I liked Cinder, it wasn't anything magical or something that really stood out to me, it was just okay. However Scarlet the second book in The Lunar Chronicles has made me think again. I honestly really liked this book, I liked the new characters. I can't even decide between Scarlet, Wolf and Thorne because they al bring something different to the plot.
The building of the story progressed really well, I was curious as to how these two stories would entwine, but it was appar ...more
There should be more to this book.
I'm a sucker for a good fairytale rewrite - so I (mostly) enjoyed this retelling of Red Riding Hood.
BUT, the couple in this one (Scarlet and Wolf) and the book in general seemed to be missing something.
“What’s your name, anyway?”It's like they are on the cusp of being truly great but fell a smidge short. Their rapport just seemed...off... like it was forced.
That awkward shrug again. “They call me Wolf at the fights.”
“ Wolf? How … predatory."
“Wolf, are you...more
I loved this book! I don't think I liked it as much as Cinder but I still really enjoyed it. I just love being in this world.
Things I loved:
-Cinder and Thorne's friendship
-Iko being a ship
I read the majority of the book in one night, I was so addicted to it. I'm very excited to move onto Cress now as it seems to be most peoples favorite.
"It would be easy to abuse a person when they never recognized it as abuse."
It probably shouldn't come as a surprise for those who have been following my progress updates on this but I enjoyed reading this a lot more than Cinder :')
Firstly, the characterization was what grabbed my attention from Cinder and I'm so glad that Marissa Meyer introduced even more characters for me to fall for in Scarlet. Her writing makes it tough not to feel a certain emotion for every single one of them. Secondly, ...more
