My feelings are torn betweeen OMG I´m soooooo glad I found this story and OMG I can´t believe it´s already over. Seriously, I have constantly been watching the little progress numbers on my kindle and prayed that this story would never end. I GIGGLED, I CRIED, I THREW MY HANDS UP IN THE AIR, I WAS ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING Yes it´s a romance, but oh so funny. Imagine, a boyband - a very famous one, that is - moves in with you, because during a show someone shot at them, your dad´s a special agent and he hides them at his mansion where his family lives. Of course all guys are swoonworthy. You´d think they´re so caught up in their success, their looks. But then you live with them and find a new BFF-boy and the love of your life. Not bad, eh? I mean, the scenes were straight hilarious: A Twitter feed on the fridge, to save one of the boys from his Twitter withdrawals, a bored Zombie-style walking boyband member, a nearly-naked-boy-in-a-girls-room misunderstanding? Hell, yes!
Cloe, 18 and Aralie 17, are no fans of the famous canadian boyband 'Spaceships around Saturn' contrary to their smaller sister Emery, 6. She is the epitome of fangirlism and can´t seem to contain herself, when her favourite SAS boy moves in with her together with the other band members.
I mean Emery, she´s exactly how a 6 year old crazed fan would be and she caused innumerable of my LOL moments. I connected with the story so much, I thought I lived with the family and the boys. I loved the constant banter, Emery´s fangirlism, the boys pranks, the beautiful stolen moments. It was so totally funny but beautifully written at the same time. I could list a ton of unforgettable quotes here. Finally I have to say, that I especially loved the families mom. I´m hoping I might be a little as cool as she is.
I truly recommend this book to everyone who loves a really funny, yet beautiful romance with incredible characters. It´s a MUST-READ and if I had 20 stars, I´d happily give them.
Oh I love these series more and more with each book. I thought it was great from the very beginning, but this turns out to become an EPIC MUST-READ.

If you think each book (Cinder, Scarlet and now Cress) only deals with one character at a time, you´re so wrong! With each book, Marissa Meyer´s universe evolves and new characters are added to the story, which is done perfectly. Even the multiple POV is flawless and after every scene I was thrilled to know more about what everybody was up to. The story flows so smoothly, it´s a pageturner from the beginning through the end. Captivating, thrilling, everything a great book needs. At times I thought I was in the middle of an 'Ocean´s eleven' movie, that´s how suspense-packed it was. And the characters: you´d think that those princesses and princes are all the same, but the girls first: Whether it was Cinder, Scarlet or Cress, they all have their very unique personality (oh, and let´s not forget IKO, the funny and precocious android girl)and I loved every single one. During hard times like they have to go through in the books with the evil queen Levana (I thought that Levana and Leck - the vicious king of Kristin Cashore´s series Fire-Graceling-Bitterblue would make an awesome evilness-personified psycho-mad couple of the century)it´s really good they have their guys at their side. I was excited to see, if Kai finally gets his Cinder or how Scarlet and Wolf interact with eachother. Cress gets the guy of her dreams too, but I won´t tell who it is because I don´t want to spoiler anyone :) Just as much: Cress gets the most perfect kiss one could ever have.
At the end of Cress, there´s a sneak peek at Winter, the final installment of this series and it will be oh so weird but oh so good, I´m sure. As I don´t want to get any older I hope this year is over soon, so I can finally turn the first page of WINTER!
