ACTION. ADVENTURE. MADNESS. BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY MY NEW SHIP: THORNE AND FREAKING CRESS. I LOVE THEM TOGETHER SO MUCH. AHHHH.
(sorry not sorry for my not so professional review. ALL THE CAPS LOCK. ALL OF IT.)
NEED. WINTER. NOW.
When I first jumped on the Lunar Chronicles bandwagon, I was late to the party. I tend to avoid any novel in the blogosphere that is garnering a ton of hype, due to past experiences where the hype completely killed my enjoyment. However, I dove into Cinder trepidatiously and came out completely in love, mostly thanks to the sweet nostalgia feelings from the cleverly added Sailor Moon references. And if that wasn’t clear bef ...more
"When she was jut a child, the witch locked her away in a tower that had neither doors nor stairs."
Cinder?...and Rapunzel?...in a desert?...in 2014?
Can life get any more depressing?!?!?! It sounds so interesting but also sooooo far away! I just read Scarlet and now I have to wait a whole year!!!!
(was that the perfect gif or what?)
Oh and Scarlet and Wolf better be there too or I'll just...I'll just:

“The people of Luna don’t need a princess. They need a revolutionary.”
Cinder furrowed her brow. “A revolutionary,” she repeated. She liked that a lot better than princess.
WELP. I'm sad to say that Cress still drove me mad for the first 75% of this book, but once again, she inexplicably improved in the end. This is one series that benefits greatly from multiple POVs.
Onward and upwards.
THEORIES: (view spoiler)[

Are you absolutely sure you don't want to give it to me now??
Oh, and I had it straight from Marissa herself that, yes, Scarlet and Wolf will be in Cress with POVs!!! (I think the POV is Scarlet's though)
Sorry but this book just dragged on and on. I get that the author is trying to pull multiple POVs together now into one story, but it was very stop/start when done in the same scene. I didn't care very much for this entry in the series. I was so bored with this one that I have very little to say about the dry plot.
And thinki ...more
BEST YET. WINTER, WHY YOU SO FAR AWAY? WHAT IS BRAIN.

Okay. Words. I need to put together words for this book, but I can't because THIS BOOK.
It's a big, honking long book, and trust me, that's the best part. You never want this ride to end. We're thrust into action and adventure from the get-go. The characters you've come to love throughout the series su ...more
“You said yourself that the people of Luna need a revolutionary.” She lifted her chin, holding his gaze. “So I’m going to Luna, and I’m going to start a revolution.”
Blurb: Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.
Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cre ...more
THINGS HAPPEN. AND IT IS AMAZING.
Full review to come.
Original Review 03/09/2013
Just got back from Marissa's signing in Toronto. She told us a number of interesting versions of fairytales which have given me a number of different theories about this book. The biggest being?
(view spoiler)[CRESS AND THORNE FALL IN LOVE! <\spoiler>
Basically Rapunzel's parents pawned her off to a witch after the witch gave her mother lettuce (her mother was craving lettuce while she was preg ...more
We swing into action from the very beginning of this novel, during which we meet Cress and get to know the kind of life she lived inside this satellite for almost a decade. Like always, I love the references t ...more
I adored this book so much it makes me want to pull a Cress, hack into Goodreads and create a special sixth star just to bestow on it's awesomeness.
I also had so much fun doing my first ever buddy read on such a brilliant book with Margi, Gavin and Sha :)
I think I've pinpointed the reason why I didn't like Cinder in the first place. I couldn't connect with Cinder the character or Kai, and the writing/plot wasn't great enough to make up for it. But then came Scarlet with the unlikely pairing of Scarlet and Wolf and completely knocked my socks off, leaving me tentatively hopeful that maybe, maybe I had been too hasty with my judgement and this series is like Legend, t ...more
For some reason, I almost feel like I have to defend my love for these books. Is that weird? Or are there really a bunch of you out there giving me the Judgy Eye for being all aflutter every time I read another installment of the Lunar Chronicles? I'm just paranoid, right?
Ok, so...Cress = Rapunzel (or Tangled, as my little girl calls her).
She's been imprisoned in a Tower (read: satellite orbiting the Earth) for years by an evil witch (read: Sybil) Her parents were forced to give ...more
I know each book will have more about its main character, Cress in this case. I liked her, don't get me wrong. She is a really sweat and innocent girl, I just wasn't really into her head. I know she was isolated from people and wouldn't mature a lot. However, she sees a lot of "earthen" dramas, what wou ...more
“You can help me pick out a tiara when we’re done saving the world.”
I am obsessed with this series.The characters are so amazing,especially in this book,and once I started reading "Cress" I just couldn't stop.I mean,come on,TOO MANY OTPs FOR ONE BOOK.I loved Cress,she is so cute,and I loved Thorne in this one.Swoon-worthy male characters & smart and loyal female characters = win win win.I have to mention Kai and those last few pages- I died. WINTER I'M WAITING FOR YOU BABY.
“I will not be shackled to this satellite anymore.”
In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army....more

"Do you think it was destiny that brought us together?"
He squinted and, after a thoughtful moment, shook his head. "No. I'm pretty sure it was Cinder.”
Cress leaned forward, propping her elbows on her knees, "Like the star?"
She stiffened, instantly embarrassed, and scooted back from him again. "Oh. Um. In a constellation, the brightest star is called the alpha. I thought maybe you meant that she's...like...your brightest star." Looking away, she knotted her hands in her lap, aware that she was blushing furiously now and this beast of a man was about to realize what an over-romantic sap she was.
But instead of sneering or laughing, Wolf sighed, "Yes," he said, his gaze climbing up to the full moon that had emerged in the blue evening sky. "Exactly like that.”
