Scarlet
Scarlet | Marissa Meyer
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. An NPR Best Book of 2013

This was between a pick and a so-so for me. I chose pick because I might read the next in the series. I liked Cinder (the character) much more than Scarlet. While I liked the story, it's at times too YA for me. The plot thickens, though...

hannah-leeloo I love this series! Hope you really enjoy it. 2w
PickwickPlockPlock @hannah-leeloo I really like that it's a female-driven sci-fi/fantasy series. 2w
hannah-leeloo @PickwickPlockPlock me too its really good. The book Winter had me hooked 2w
readordierachel The series got better as it continued, imo. I thought the next one was pretty fun. 2w

I wasn‘t sure if I should read this after Cinder but I had to know where the story went! I‘m so glad I did. Such a great book!!!! Definitely going to move right along to the next in the series! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ruthiella Yes. You have to read all the way to the end. I rolled my eyes a lot- YA romance is not my thing - but I had to know how it all turned out! Plus I developed a thing for Wolf...❤️ 2mo

An excellent second installment. It took me a while to get through because I was doing it on audio and I had limited listening time, but I really enjoyed it. The new characters added quite a bit to the narrative.

I liked this one better than the first. Actually I didn‘t not like the first one I just didn‘t know if I‘d continue the series now (because of some of you all) I am super glad I did continue this... now on to Cress

Book number 2 in the series, and I loved it so much more than the first! I‘m so glad I stuck it out and kept reading the series, because I really liked this book. A lot more action, exciting plot, interesting characters, and overall fun to read. I still don‘t like the audiobook narrator, and the characters are undoubtedly flawed, but I‘m really looking forward to the next books.

Scarlet was a wonderful sequel to Cinder, adding in great new characters on top of those we‘d already met. Though I did indeed predict correctly whose side Wolf was truly on, I liked how the book keeps up the suspense through Scarlet‘s POV.

🌟 🌟🌟🌟 The 2nd book in the Lunar Chronicles, and like most series, the second book isn‘t as strong as the 1st, but I enjoyed it. The story jumps back and forth from one story (Scarlet‘s) to the other (Cinder‘s), and it is honestly a little abrupt, but the reader adapts and begins to enjoy both stories. I will finish the series, but I‘m also predisposed to loving fairytale adaptations. I‘m also curious how the characters and the story develops.

Scarlet was a really great book. I was wondering which books I was forgetting to do on my Litsy. Scarlet was really enjoyable to read. There was a lot of twists and turns in this book. Scarlet is based off of little red riding hood and is kind of based off the story but filled with more action, romance and mystery. I enjoyed this book more then I enjoyed Cinder. It really drawed me in. I rate this book a 9/10

Cfischbuch I think this might have been my favourite from the series. 6mo

Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles and while I didn‘t enjoy it as much as I did Cinder, it was still a fun read. I enjoyed the introduction of the new characters, the building on Cinder‘s story and how the author weaves several fairytale characters together in one tale. Meyer does a good job outlining the back story around Cinder, so even if you haven‘t read that, you can still enjoy this one. Great for tweens. Audio was great

The series isn‘t bad, with the limited time I have to read there are many other worlds I‘d rather be experiencing. Marissa Meyer did a great job world building, but it‘s not a place I want to be, I‘m sure many other people will love this book a series, it‘s just not for me.

I am really enjoying this series. Cinder is a fugitive on the run with the help of Captain Throne. She is trying to figure out what do to. What she doesn't know is that someone else may hold the key to her past. This book introduces a version of Little Red Riding Hood. Scarlett is looking for her grandmother that went missing when she meets Wolf who wants to help her. I can't wait to see where the next book takes all the characters.

Scarlet meets mysterious Wolf while searching for her grandmother and Cinder is still on the run from the Commonwealth when their stories intertwine.

I'm loving this series! Fast paced, humourous, and interesting. The author did a good job of keeping two story lines going, not leaving me disappointed when i switched from one to the other. On to the next!

I've started the second book in this series which switches between Scarlet, whose grandmother had a secret and has therefore been captured, and Cinder from the first book in the series. Eventually they will meet up and I am eager to see how their stories intertwine.

I‘m more in love with The Lunar Chronicles than I ought to be. I guess I REALLY enjoy Cyber Punk when it involves creative fairytale retellings, a fascinating world, vibrant characters and is just well written in general. I already ordered “Cress”. “Scarlet” had such great action, added more to the world, & introduced great new characters. Bonus for the Flynn Ryder-based character owning a ship called “The Rampion”.

Stephaniereads1 There are two graphic novels after the series is complete! I loved this series. I read the novellas and the graphic novels. 9mo
Jess_Franzino @Stephaniereads1 Ooh! I knew about the novellas, but not the graphic novels. Thanks for telling me! I‘m seriously surprised with how much I adore this series! I can‘t get enough of the world & characters! 9mo
Stephaniereads1 Right. I was surprised. I fell in love hard! And I found the graphic novels by accident. I can‘t even tell you my favorite character because it‘s a three way or four way tie. Lol 9mo
Jess_Franzino @Stephaniereads1 Right now I‘m crazy about “Captain” Thorne, simply because Flynn Ryder is one of my favorite Disney characters, and “Rapunzel” is my favorite fairytale (sooo excited for Cress). But, I adore them all! 9mo

And this is why I should never start reading a book from the “Lunar Chronicles” series at 1:30 am with the plan of getting in “a chapter or two” before bedtime. ESPECIALLY during a #24B4Monday weekend.
