Ok ! Will be starting soon.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments Spot. :)
Will be starting soon also.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments Finished part 1 and till now I like it.

It is so different from other Cinderella tales with cyborgs and androids.

Mayim de Vries | 2948 comments It's one of my favourite YA. And Scarlet is just perfect. Enjoy!


Olivia (vinjii) | 1085 comments I loved all of these :) Hope you guys have fun and will definitely read your comments!


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments Thank you girls. :)

End of Book 2

(view spoiler)

I know I'm supposed to read other books also but this caught at me and I just have to see what happens next.

So ... on to Book 3. :)


Beste | 1163 comments I read this book before but definitely need a re-read before I continue with Scarlet. So I'm dropping The Autumn Republic for a few days and starting Cinder tonight. Yayyy:)


Joanne I am going to start this one! Hello Laura! I have missed you.


Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments Hi Joanne! I've missed you too!!! 😘😘😘

Good to have you here.

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments Right you are! :D

Laura, I see that you are thinking of just reading this series back-to-back instead of going monthly. I actually like that idea, since these books are short YA maybe we can do that. Instead of monthly do a weekly BR?

What do you guys think? We haven't scheduled the rest of the series yet.

If not monthly, can we do it every 15days? I still have Perdido Street Station, Embassytown and most importantly 1087pages long Words of Radiance :/

I'm also doing Perdido, WOR, and Memories of Ice too!

I was suggesting this because Laura mentioned something I've been thinking of. I never really spread out series like this before I started doing BRs, and sometimes I just want to marathon a series instead of waiting weeks between books. I understand why BRs are set up like this, especially for the long adult fantasy, but for these light YA reads...We do get 1 week before and 2 weeks after the BR to start if that helps. It was just a suggestion. We can schedule fortnightly if that fits better.

I have been in a lot lot of BRs in the last year and the whole planning for books started to become a chore for me. I almost went into a slump and to avoid that from happening again I'm leaving some space for free reads. Stuff that I feel like reading at that time.

This series is one of those for now. I finished Cinder this morning and already finished Book 1 of Scarlet by now. That end made me so curious to see what happens next.

If you girls decide to BR the rest of this series I'll be on the thread with you and chat the same way I do now, but I'll probably finish the entire Lunar Chronicles by next week.


Beste | 1163 comments Thats faster than I thought. Yanique!!! Can we at least say 25May for Scarlet and then weekly BRs??


Beste | 1163 comments Also girls do we read the other books of this series (Fairest and Stars above)?


Beste | 1163 comments Btw I finished the book

Sure. I'm starting Cinder today, and these seem like one-sitting books.


Beste | 1163 comments can you ask for a thread with these dates? Im on the phone can't go into the mods please add this thread today.

So I’m planning on reading this tonight. 1/4 into it and my thoughts are that it’s super simple, and maybe a little too straight forward, but it’s interesting. I knew nothing about plot or characters going in, and this would not be what I guessed at all.

I finished it last night, and I'm so glad we scheduled the following book so soon after the first. That ending... not really a fan.

I liked the story generally, though I did find it a bit too simple. I wasn't sure how the whole re-telling aspect was going to work for a fairytale in sci-fi, but it was interesting.

Joanne End of part 1. Wow! you are really fast readers! I am now doing messaging with Laura on Cinder as well. I feel that the part with Cinder being taken was awful. Too bad I read it at bed time! I had to read it until it wasn't as scary. I agree with what you all said. I think Adri should have just said she did it for the money instead of blaming Cinder.

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments @Sha - slowly chanting *me and you! you and me!* :D

I've finished this one but have so many others that I didn't even start! MoI - oh man! That one started on the 18th and I didn't even add it... (*sigh*)


Beste | 1163 comments We have Scarlet starting today. And we go with weekly schedules.

Sha | 1522 comments Adri is a ridiculously over the top character though. The biggest emotion this book has wrung from me is a meeting desire to strangle her.

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6217 comments Since even Sha is joining, I'll wait for you ladies with the rest of the books. I finished Scarlet already but will hold the rest back and read them with you.
