Scarlet by Marissa Meyer: Book Review + Winner Announcement!!!

scarletTitle: Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles, #2) 

Author: Marissa Meyer

Started Date:  March 03, 2013

Finished Date: March 05, 2013

Rating: 5/5 stars

 

Summary from Goodreads:

The fates of Cinder and Scarlet collide as a Lunar threat spreads across the Earth…

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 THOUGHTS.

 

AWESOME! AMAZING! This is the best sequel I’ve ever read in my entire reading life!!!
If I could just give it more than 5 stars, I would! Thousand stars or millions!
I love it so much, I freaking love it! Marissa Meyer, I’m a fan of yours!!! Definitely a huge fan now!

It took me 2 days to finally write something about this book, because I couldn’t find the right words to describe how I actually felt while and after reading it. I know you may think I’m a bit exaggerated, but I’m telling the truth! I can say that this is so much better from the first book, I really liked it, but not how I like this sequel. It contains the complete recipe of an amazing read – action, adventure, romance, lessons and characters everyone will love!

As you all know, this is a retelling of The Red Riding Hood with a heroine named Scarlet. Her grandmother was missing and she turned to Wolf for help. Oh my, I love Wolf! I don’t know why, but I do love him! He may be a big bad wolf, or boy rather, but he’s got a soft heart. To those who haven’t read it yet might not believe me, but he’s such a charming guy! And I love him more than Prince Kai. Haha! Please forgive me for the revelation and my change of heart. LOL! Anyway, Scarlet is a fantastic character too, she’s brave and determined! She loves her grandmother so much that she did everything just to find her. One character I also like is Captain Thorne, he’s with Cinder all the time! And I will not spoil why! He’s such a witty character and very funny! Of course, I can’t forget about Iko, she’s so cute and funny too! I’m glad that she’s back in this book!

Anyway, I really like the turn of events, the adventure, especially the three settings – Cinder’s, Scarlet’s and Prince Kai’s, though there are only small parts from him. They are not point of views, since this is written on third person, so imagine how creative Marissa Meyer in developing this book. I can’t literally wait for the next installments, and read again about them! There will be more new characters and I’m sure that I’ll also love them! I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE!

***********

If you don’t want spoilers, don’t read the below line, my favorite from Wolf:
“I know you must want nothing to do with me, I don’t blame you. But you’re the only one Scarlet. You’ll always be the only one.”

I love everyone who reads my blog! LOL! Thank you so much!!! I really appreciate all of you!!!
