Book Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Winter by Marissa Meyer

Ever since I first read Cinder, almost three years ago, I knew that this series would likely be one of my all-time favorites. Now here we are. The end of the road. And I was not wrong. At a whopping 824 pages, your first thought upon opening Winter may rightfully be, “Holy crap this book is massive.” That size is daunting to most readers – especially to me. But it’s a testament to Meyer’s skill as a writer that the story never truly drags and no moment ever feels unnecessary. Every book introduces two additional main characters – so by Winter, with Winter and Jacin […]

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

It’s probably worth noting that I very rarely read novellas or prequels unless I am heavily invested in the series. Now, Fairest was at the top of my wishlist anyway because The Lunar Chronicles is one of my all time favorite series. This prequel novella gives me a new appreciation for Meyer’s craftsmanship in terms of her story and her characters. One of the things I love most in books – particularly in sci-fi / fantasy series – is getting a good understanding of the villain. A villain should never be evil just to be evil. There should be a reason for that – they […]

ARC Book Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

ARC Book Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Before Cress, I was already listing The Lunar Chronicles as one of my favorite series at the moment. But Cress freaking cemented it as one of my all-time favorite series. This book. THIS BOOK. With its 560 pages. It was amazing and addictive, and by far the best of the series so far. Cress has to be pretty much my favorite character. Right from the first chapter, I was in love with her. She reminded me a lot of Clara, as Oswin, in the Asylum of the Daleks, the first episode of series 7 of Doctor Who. Nope, I can’t pass up a Doctor Who […]

Book Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Took me long enough to get around to this sequel, right? I’m sorryyy. But I’m here now, ready to put my piece of mind out there and reaffirm that, yes, this is an awesome book and an awesome sequel for an awesome series. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite series, guys. First off, I want to give serious praise to Marissa for her ability to create interesting, captivating characters. Introducing new (main) characters after the series has already started is quite a difficult thing. And most times, for me at least, it doesn’t work. But Scarlet is awesome. Wolf is amazing. Thorne is […]

Book Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer (+ Audio Clip)

Book Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer (+ Audio Clip)

Thank you forever, Marissa Meyer, for this book. Not only was it an extremely creative and enjoyable sci-fi retelling of Cinderella, but I was craving good young adult sci-fi for so long, and now I finally have found a great one. I knew about this book for a long time, kept seeing the title on Goodreads, but something just kept holding me back. Though the idea (Cinderella is a cyborg) sounded interesting, at the same time it kind of gave me chills. But being a sci-fi fan, I finally decided I should check it out. And now I only regret not having read it sooner. […]
