Scarlet | Marissa Meyer
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison--even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive. Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner. An NPR Best Book of 2013

This is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles. I highly enjoyed this book with a Little Red Riding Hood focus. I am hooked.
I have to read the rest of the series to know what's going to happen to Cinder and Queen Levana.

Good mix of Cinders continuing story mixed with Scarlets. Their mutual story is to find Scarlets grandmother. found myself drawn towards Wolfs nervous ticks. I have that extra energy too. This book also answered a question from the first book. It adds to the stakes. This felt more gory and dark, more mysterious. This order of the wolves is insane. Now that the setting is set, we get gritty.

Started my Journey into the lunar chronicles. I‘m a sucker for a badass MC with red hair and a cinnamon roll boyfriend, so I connected quickly with the characters. I loved how there was a switching of povs too. Cinder gave me life once again with her sarcastic attitude and cargo pants. Thorne was an amazing character and I can‘t wait to see how his love story progresses. 4⭐️

I liked it! Not quite as much as Cinder. It felt like it took awhile for the story to really get going. It took me a minute to be invested in Scarlet. I also don‘t love when I figure stuff out way ahead of the characters and have to wait for them to catch up. At least it ended well! I‘m stoked to see what happens to Cinder & co next.

I am really enjoying the Lunar Chronicles and can't believe I have waited so long to read them!! I found Meyer's suggested reading order that includes where to read all the short stories in Stars Above, so next I am going to catch up on those before jumping into Cress. This one was a little slow in spots/overly long, but that could have also possibly been because I am reading six other books in the chapter-a-day method, which really does eat into⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) my reading time overall. But I'm totally engaged in this story/world/characters and looking forward to seeing where things go!!

Ruthiella I normally am allergic to romance, but I totally fell for Wolf in this book. The third book is probably the best. But if you thought Scarlet was over long, just wait till you get to Winter! 😂 5mo
TheAromaofBooks @TheSpineView @BarbaraJean - Sometimes it's kind of nice to wait until later to read a series like this - now I can read the short stories interspersed where they are suggested to read, and I've seen several people recommend reading Fairest before reading Winter, even though it was published later. 5mo
TheAromaofBooks @Ruthiella - I'm already half in love with Wolf and can't wait to see how his character grows during the rest of the series. And I noticed that Winter is quite the chunkster! We'll see what happens!! 😂 5mo

Scarlet is a continuation of the first book of the series, Cinder. By that, society around the world is now keeping an alert for a criminal fugitive that had escape from the Eastern Kingdom. Being the most wanted person in the world, she is ought to find a way to stop Queen Levana from destroying her beloved planet.

khristen.samson On the other hand, Scarlet Benoit lives on the other side of the world and living a peaceful life until her grandmother suddenly went missing. Likewise, she met a fighter named Wolf who knows some information of her grandmother's whereabouts but he is too suspicious to be trusted. 6mo
khristen.samson If you like books that revolves around the world buildings of hidden organizations and fighting actions then you might like this book. The point of view used by the author for both protagonists are a Third Person Omniscient Point of View that the author uses on the story. 6mo
khristen.samson Furthermore, the writing technique used in the story is telling the story between Scarlet and Cinder's side of the story before encountering one another, 6mo
MissYaremcio Nicely done Khristen! Such a good series and I'm glad that you've been enjoying it! 6/6 6mo

Meyer's writing is mesmerizing & her storytelling prowess is just magnificent. The characters are interesting, partially retold, partially imaginative, making them both nostalgic & entertaining. The pace is good & fast & there is always something happening. The dual POV was fantastic & Cinder's story was able to weave around this one in a way that felt so natural. This series is so much fun and I cannot wait to see where things continue to go.

I think of the four books Scarlet was my favorite simply for the sake we got a lot of Scarlet and I think she really was my favorite character in the books. I mean, I loved them all but Scarlet‘s fierce no-nonsense attitude is just something I really enjoyed. Also, watching her relationship develop with Wolf.

Major Spoils for just after the beginning of chapter five

This is a bit sudden (I.e. I just paused the audiobook and logged on as fast as I could) but Cinder is so BADASS in this book and she. Just. Used. Her. Glamour!!
Thorn is a pretty interesting character and I kind of like him. I definitely see where the author is going with her obvious annoyance by him- they‘ll definitely become lovers or at least close friends by the end of this book.

Fantasy_bookworm Update from listening to a bit more: suspicions confirmed, she thinks he‘s handsome and he probably thinks she‘s pretty even without glamour, kiss is GUARANTEED by now (edited) 2y

Here‘s something annoying that keeps happening to me: my holds come in as soon as I borrow something!
I put a hold on Scarlet as soon as I finished Cinder, which was when I started The Rithmatist. I just finished that today and borrowed A Court Of Thorns And Roses, which I‘m about 13 minutes into. I opened up Libby a few minutes ago to start reading, and now my hold is ready. Maybe it‘s because people read at the same speed as me? Ugh!

All Cinder had ever wanted was freedom. Freedom from her stepmother and her overbearing rules. Freedom from a life of constant work with nothing to show for it. Freedom from the sneers and hateful words of strangers who didn't trust the cyborg girl who was too strong and too smart and too freakishly good with machines to ever be normal.

Now she had her freedom - but it wasn't like anything she'd envisioned.

quote
selinaansshelf

“I'll take it,“ said Thorne, stretching out on the floor beside her and enjoying the cold hardness of the dock's floor, the obnoxiously glaring lights overhead, the stink of sewage on their clothes, and the perfect sensation of freedom.

The towering skyscrapers of New Beijing dropped away and then it was only him and the sky and the endless landscape of space.

Whilst I would recommend reading Scarlet if you've already read Cinder and want to know what happens next, I'd advise going into it knowing that it might be boring to read at the beginning, so you have to put a little more effort in than with Cinder. I didn't enjoy it as much as Cinder, but I'm excited to keep reading and find out what happens next!

Leaving the first book we do continue the story, but this book adds characters and knowledge about this world. Scarlet is this worlds version of red riding hood. The story is complete with a missing grandmother and a wolf. I was not as absorbed in this book as the first one. However, I did enjoy the new characters who should continue in the series.

When I went shopping at the B&N yesterday I saw these lovelies! I LOVE The Lunar Chronicles sooo much! I wonder if the Winter copy has come out or not, otherwise I probably would have purchased these for myself! Scarlet and Wolf are my favorite couple! 🥰

I also picked up a lot of goodies for one lucky winner of the #LBD Lizzie Bennet Diaries giveaway! (Winner announced November 1)

Enjoyed that one maybe even a little more than book one. Throne is awesome, but he has to be. Otherwise Scarlets story would be even more sad than it already is. Well done again by Marissa Meyer. I think she also does a great job of mixing the genres - they just fit so perfectly well here.

#️⃣9️⃣ a strong-willed character
The characters in this story definitely were not short on strong will. I love the badass girls in The Lunar Chronicles and I definitely won‘t wait 4 years between books in the series again!
This book will also be counted for my county library challenge as a twisted fairy tale.
🦾 Start with Cinder.

Playing catch-up here - it‘s been a tough couple weeks for me and I‘ve been laying low. Luckily I‘m still reading a lot.

Started reading this one yesterday. They‘re quick reads and check off a bunch of SRP items, but I find them just ok. The author‘s grammar is poor, which drives me bonkers.

Also, it may have been a poor choice to read a series about a prejudiced society being ravaged by a plague and threatened by a violent and power-hungry dictator at this particular moment...

ravenlee @PickwickPlockPlock good to know. I have the whole series from the library, so if it continues to be just ok at least I‘m only out some time. 2y
