Robin (thebookbin) I finished Cress last night and I've read both Cinder and Scarlet and I honestly can't wait until November I don't know what I'm going to do. This series is phenomenal!!

You have to read Fairest Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5) by Marissa Meyer . You will learn just how evil the queen really is and why. The short book also introduces Winter...so you get a little of her backstory. I can't for November either!

Robin (thebookbin) Im planning on reading it for sure! Do you happen to know if there is a paperback version of Fairest? I've only seen hardcover in my local stores which won't match the rest of the series on my shelves (So particular I know I roll my own eyes at myself.)

It is available in paperback. If you ever want to check out other editions like paperback just locate the book on Goodreads look for other editions just above the "Get a Copy" buttons - click other editions and look for paperback. You can also use the dropdown arrow and select paperback.

I absolutely love this series!It hooked me from the start. The adaptations were very interesting and the characters are so likible. I recently finished Fairest and although it made me understand her a little bit, her motives and even got me to pity her a a little, I still despise her. Cress and Scarlett are by far my favorites. I CAN'T WAIT FOR NOVEMBER!

Andalynne Moore (mikkiemoore) | 6 comments I love this series! It's my favorite! I need to read Fairest, though. I have it, I've just been so busy I haven't had the chance to read it. I really want to read it!

Cristal (cristaliscool) | 6 comments I have Cinder on Kindle, and I can't wait to read it!! Just trying to finish some other books, there's so many :o lol i will update when I start to read it. :)

Fiona (fionapplepie) | 3 comments I'm currently reading Scarlet and I find it waaaaay more interesting than Cinder. Because I find it more straightforward and unnecessary parts were lessen. But the only perk I found in Scarlet is the intechanging of POVs that sometimes I tend to be confused and a bit lost in the flow of the story.

Nonetheless, I'm looking foward to new jaw-dropping revelations in Scarlet just like how I was in Cinder. :)


message 16: by Kelsey (new)

Kelsey (kelseypartridge) I've already read Cinder and I own Scarlet, but probably won't read it until summer. Cinder just kind of dragged at first, but I'm sure I'll like scarlet more since it's little red riding hood.

I've read Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles, #2) by Marissa Meyer Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3) by Marissa Meyer Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles, #3.5) by Marissa Meyer Fairest is the 272 page short bridge book between Cress and Winter. I loved the way each book has it's own new lead character and new story, yet they are intertwined with the continuing story. Fairest proved that Levana is one Evil, Evil, heartless, sick and twisted queen. I can't wait for Winter, except it's the last book. Goodreads shows that it will be 800 pages!

My favorite book so far is Cress. I thought Cress' story was an interesting spin on Rapunzel. I just loved her right away. I loved the new characters and the progression of the story.

Sinead I've read the first 3 books and have yet to read Fairest as it isn't released on Kindle in the UK/Ireland for some reason, and I adore them all, but Cinder is my favourite as I love Cinder and Kai they're just so swoon-worthy. However I love the spin Meyer took on these fairytale characters and can't wait to read Fairest to see her background story, I think it'll be very interesting to read!

Gretchen Mary | 2 comments I loved the series so far. Fairest is a very short read. I was able to read it in one sitting. I can't wait for Winter to be released.
