Despite finishing all the books in this series more than a year ago, The Lunar Chronicles (Goodreads) still springs into my thoughts fairly often. When someone asks me what this series is about, I struggle to answer them. “Um, fairy tales retold in a dystopian, romantic, action-y kind of way with lots of heart-eyes, wolves, sci-fi fun, and moon people.” Honestly, this book has so much going … Continue reading 5 Reasons to Read The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
*Spoiler Alert: This review reveals some info about the other books in the series!* Hello!

First of all, I apologize for any and all spoilers. It was unavoidable. Second, I also apologize for the excessive use of gifs in this post. I got excited. I couldn’t help myself. Third, Aaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Their selection isn’t the most varietal, but they … Continue reading Book Outlet Haul!
I think that gif properly sums up my feelings for this book- for this series. Honestly, though, what’s not to love about The Lunar Chronicles? The characters are all unique and so much fun, the world is complex yet easy to understand and visualize, and the relationships are slow and natural and, for those of the romantic variety, swoon-worthy! If you haven’t read Cinder or … Continue reading Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer
First, I couldn’t believe I waited so long to read Scarlet. Now, I wish I’d waited longer, because now I have to wait to read Cress! However, it’s only a few more months, so I guess I can stick it out. ; D I’ve probably said this before, but I don’t like science fiction very much. Just never been into that genre, but I loved … Continue reading Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
What I liked: I loved the fairy tale twist that was spun out so cleverly that it was impossible to put down. Cinder was unique and different, yet at the same time so easy to relate to because she was in some ways just a teenager trying to fit in. There were so many plot twists and unexpected revelations throughout the book that held my … Continue reading Review: Cinder – Marissa Meyer!
