“She did not know that the wolf was a wicked sort of animal, and she was not afraid of him.”
3 1/2 stars. I do not know that this is actually an amazing book, but dammit, it was entertaining. Honestly, I pretty much hated Cinder when I finally forced myself through it last year. It was a 1-star, ranty hate at all the wasted potential and - worst of all - tediousness. But so many commenters told me to read Scarlet anyway.
At first, I wasn't going to. Seems kind of stupid to read the sequel to a ...more
I really enjoyed this installment in the Lunar Chronicles, but I didn't think it was as good as Cinder. I was annoyed reading about Scarlet throughout this book. We really didn't get to know her, we only saw her concerned about her grandmother and wolf. I did love the sections that were focused on Cinder though! I also really liked how the two story lines came together. I'm looking forward to jumping into Cress!
Some months ago, after struggling with SO MANY science fiction reads, I came to the conclusion that, perhaps, it may not a genre for me. Dur. I didn’t take it well, let’s say, because that meant the hundreds and hundreds hyped sci-fi books out there would most likely not appeal to me either. I know that not every genre can work for everyone, but it’s always unfortunate to learn something like this. I just realized how dramatic my confession must have sounded, b ...more
“Even in the Future the Story Begins with Once Upon a Time.”
Once Upon a Time, there was a little girl (let's call her Rina) who loved fairytales. Her favorite was Red Riding Hood, and she knew this story by heart since she was 2-years-old (everyone thought that this was a sign of her intelligence but in my opinion it was a warning. A warning that she'd never shup up). The girl grew up and decided to become a lawyer (so that people would pay her to talk non-stop) and she came across a horrib ...more
I don't even know what to do with myself right now. This review probably won't make sense, and I'm probably leaving a shit ton out, but here goes.
I was lucky to score an advanced copy of Scarlet from Marissa Meyer while at Comic Con.
I was in the middle of another book which I quickly finished in order to start this. So, Cinder left us with our heroine basically on the run after finding out that she was Princess Selene. Scarlet opens by introducing us to the new character in this univ ...more
I have to give it to Ms. Meyer for one again combining your favorite fairy tales with sic-fi/fantasy. Seriously, well done! The Lunar Chronicles is quickly becoming one of my new favorite series and for good reason. It has kick-ass protagonists like Cinder and now Scarlet. When we first met Cinder in book one, she was shy and timid, eventually coming into her own strength. And when I heard that we would be introduced to a new main character, I was a little nervous. I was worried that I'd end up ...more

and she was not afraid of him."
She is sassy and fiesty.
He is dark, mysterious, and ADORABLE!
What more do you need people?!
. . . Did i mention she carries a gun around?? Yeah, you don't mess with that one. ;)
"Wait until morning," he said.
"The world wont be safe tonight."
Still cant find a perfect Wolf! This will do for now. Who do you guys picture as Wolf?

THIS BOOK WAS TEN THOUSAND TIMES BETTER THAN Cinder.
Scarlet and Wolf will be the literal death of me. I'm incapable of writing a review for this. It's just....READ IT PLS.
THIS LAST IMAGE KILLED ME. I actually screamed you guys.
I love Wolf so much it hurts.
I need a Wolf in my life.
The first sign that Scarlet and ...more
“I just think we shouldn’t judge her, or anyone, without trying to understand them first. That maybe we should get the full story before jumping to conclusions. Crazy notion, I know.”
PREACH. And while most people would react to Wolf's "enhancements" with disgust:
“So are there any other oddities I should know about? A tail, perhaps?”...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.
Also, CAPTAIN THORNE! Damn, I love that guy. He's like a slightly dumb yet still totally charming Han Solo. I even pictured the Millennium Falcon as his ship for the whol ...more
Ye-ah, that self-imposed wait did not last very long.
And now that I’ve finished Scarlet, you have NO idea how hard it is to write a coherent review when all I want to do is flail my arms and fangirl about the book. Because it. Was. SO GOOD.
In this retelli ...more
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
So this book was actually the weakest one in the series for me but I still loved it in the end! The characters and their stories haven't all come together or synced up ye ...more
“I just think we shouldn't judge her, or anyone, without trying to understand them first.”
I read Cinder almost a year ago, and was very underwhelmed. In fact, I didn’t really plan on continuing the series. Except bestie kept bugging me about it.
So I started this, a little reluctantly.
THIS WAS SO MUCH BETTER THAN CINDER. LIKE WHAT.
By far my biggest problem with the first book was how predictable it was. Like we all could all pretty much guess what the dea ...more

“I know.” A flicker of kindness passed over him and he pointed at his temple. “You’ll want to aim for the head. That usually makes for a fatal shot. Or, if you’re feeling really shaky, the torso. It’s a larger target.”
“Your head looks pretty big from here.”
He laughed — the expression changing everything about him. His stance relaxed, his face warmed.
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 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
She did not know the wolf was a wicked sort of animal, and she was not afraid of him.
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...more
You know what to do when you can't stop thinking about a book that you finished four days ago and having a slump because of it? And you so desperately want the sequel to it? And more embarrassingly, having dreams about it? Well, you put it in your favourites shelf.
I could NOT put this book down! Seriously!
I loved everything about it, from beginning to end.
I couldn't stop fangirl-ing every time Scarlet and Wolf spoke to each other. >\\<
I absolutely loved ...more
If Cinder wasn't for you and you don't want to continue the series, pick up Scarlet because it will change your mind completely. I'm currently in a bit of review slump so this is going to be short and sweet.
I love the characters. I adore Iko and CAPTAIN CARSWELL THORNE, aka love of my life. I also like Scarlet. I hate Wolf. I hate Scarlet and Wolf together. But, everything else I love. I feel the whole thing with Scarlet and Wolf happened too quickly and I find him quite creepy. I don't ...more
While it’s a little on the snout to both name the Little Red Ridinghood-inspired character “Scarlet” and give her red hair, I tended to like this book. The world built in Cinder is expanded upon and I actually liked imagining the French countryside in this story. Not to mention that this one is heavy with the food descriptions.
