What are the Marissa Meyer books you HAVE read? Which are your favorites?

I loved Heartless by her so, so, so much.
-Review on my Blog https://www.dbooksandreviews.com - I have read basically all of them except for the graphic novels and I am currently reading Renegades (which I got signed...)

I LOVED The Lunar Chronicles. I've read all of them- except the graphic novels.

I have not read Heartless yet, but I really really want to.
Same with Renegades :(

Addison Carmichael | 77 comments Recently read Cinder, and of course loved it. Was a bit disappointed with the ending (slightly). I know she meant to lead into the next book, but there were just a couple of things not revealed that were obvious reveals. I wish she would have written it a bit differently (won't spoil it for anyone else who has not yet read it, but I'm dying to tell you how I wish she would have ended it!).

I didn't focus a whole lot on the reveals- I was like ''just let my precious cinnamon rolls live!!'' So there were certain things that were huge surprises, but I did still guess some things.

Addison Carmichael | 77 comments Oh, that's weird, because one problem I had (at least with Cinder) was the obviousness of the "surprises", yet no one seemed to figure out anything (although it was obvious to the reader--way obvious). **SPOILER--It would have been nice for the prince to guess who and what she really was, yet love her anyhow. That's the true story behind Cinderella.**END SPOILER

True, though throughout the series we see him trying to ignore his obvious feelings for Cinder. And in his world Cyborgs are like...a big no-no so his love has to overcome everything he's known and been taught about cyborgs. Which he only begins to question once he realizes that Cinder is one.

Addison Carmichael | 77 comments I figured the author was going for that, but I still think that's always a no-fair trick to try and make you buy the next book. It was good writing and a good story--we would have bought it anyhow. Think it would have actually enticed me to grab the next one, eager for the happily-ever-after.
