I had to bail on After Alice I will try again but my next jar pick is this one. I do love Marissa Meyer so I have high hopes.

Linear I saw this and assumed it was another part of the Cinder world. Am I wrong? 1mo

Happy Friday! 💕📚💕📚 I hope everyone has a nice bookish weekend lined up! I have two Harry Potter library programs tonight that I'm running back to back- one for teens and one for adults so it's going to be a loooong (but fun!) day! Luckily I'm off tomorrow so I will be indulging in a day of reading!

I'm starting this today and super excited about it! I love Marissa Meyer so I've got high hopes for this one! ❤📖

KateReadsYA This sounds like a lot of fun and that book looks like a good read too! Happy weekend :) 2mo

This book was on my “to buy” list but my daughter bought it before I got to it so I‘m borrowing it from her.

This is incredibly creative and it works really well as an #audiobook. It's sort of a Rumpelstiltskin retelling but this author does her own thing with it, as expected.

If anyone can do fairy tale retellings, the it's Marissa Meyer. I don't even mind the romance in her books. Me! This one is dark and scary, uncanny. No Happily Ever After to be found in this story. And that's one of the strong sides of this book: so much atmosphere. I could dive into the story and didn't want to come back to earth again. The ending was a little bit disappointing, even for a book in a series. But now I can look forward to part two.

Suet624 Great review. 😊 3mo

Marissa Meyer's writing & storytelling are whimsical, but with a fantastic dark edge. Fairytale retelling with a lot of atmosphere, lyrical language, mythical creatures, & fabulously gothic locations. I was hooked from the start & devoured this like my life depended on it. A great construction of light & dark, plus sacrifice of perfection & the happy ending style. Excellent writing, fun characters, and a gripping plot. Prepare for a cliffhanger.

I finished Guilded and gave it 3 1/2 stars. It was ok but I really licked The Lunar Chronicles better. But I was interested enough to pick up the second book when it comes out.

Gilded is such a great twist on a classic fairy tale. I really enjoyed Meyer‘s characters. They are relatable--as relatable as fairy tale characters can be--and are well developed; I took a real interest in their lives, the obstacles they faced, and their successes and failures. The descriptions and figurative language are extremely effective, transporting me to this fairy tale land. I love how I could tell that Serilda‘s story isn‘t finished.

First book haul of the year. I finally got to spend my Christmas gift card/money. Got some long awaited books, a few I'd never heard of, and a reading buddy. (Squishmallows make some of the best book pillows, and much cheaper and cuter than a lot on the market.) And, I managed to only go over by $3!

KateReadsYA These all look so good 4mo

This book… I didn‘t want it to end, and when it did, I was happy to learn the sequel comes out next year. The descriptions are lush, the Rumpelstiltskin storyline is cleverly played out, and the doomed romance is as engaging as the characters. Marissa can weave an excellent tale!

On a related note: I hope FairyLoot offers an exclusive edition of Cursed, too.

This book made my day! It‘s been too long since I read a Marissa Meyer book and this one did not disappoint. It was definitely darker than her previous books, but I enjoyed every page! I can‘t wait for the next one!

The first thing you ought to know
is that it wasn‘t my father‘s fault.
Not the bad luck, not the lies.
Certainly not the curse.
I know some will try to blame him,
but he had little to do with it.
And I want to be clear that
it wasn‘t entirely my fault, either.
Not the bad luck, not the lies.
Certainly not the curse.
Well.
Maybe some of the lies.

My 5th book Marissa Meyer in one month. The cover is gorgeous, but I didn‘t like it as much as The Lunar Chronicles.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️,5 / 5

Rather than #AudioColoring, I did #AudioDecorating while listening to this Rumpelstiltskin re-telling! While I have many titles by Meyer in my TBR, this is my actual first experience with her writing-& I absolutely loved it!! Serilda‘s storytelling combined with her golden flecked eyes have always made trouble for her- but her life spins in an entirely new direction when on the Winter Solstice she encounters the Erlking & dares to lie! Loved it!!

Bookzombie All your ornaments are lovely, but I really love the Chip one! 5mo

I really enjoyed this Rumplestiltskin retelling. It does end in a bit of a cliffhanger though so I'm curious if there's going to be another book.

Marissa Meyer is my go to for fairytale retellings. She always creates such wonderfully modern worlds that make the story and the characters come to life in a whole new way. Fun read!

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 6mo

Inhaled this one. This is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin and it is very well developed. Be prepared this does end in a cliffhanger. Great holiday read with a cup of tea.

one was SO good! It hooked me from the very first page, and despite saying I'd take my time with it, I binged the first 400 pages in a day. I was slightly disappointed with the ending, but that's my fault. I totally thought this was a standalone, so the cliffhanger killed me.

Saw this today at the store while buying my new amanda lovelace collection. I loved the Lunar Chronicles and can't wait to get into this one.

Paperback.Propensity I put it on hold at my library. Can't wait to read it! 6mo
literarymermaid @Paperback.Propensity I did the same. I may end up just buying it but it's on hold for now. 6mo
KristiAhlers I just bought my copy yesterday. Library had a waiting list and I‘m impatient. I‘m finishing Dark Tarot and swan diving into that one next 6mo
literarymermaid @KristiAhlers I'm reading through the Lunar Chronicles with my son first and we're gonna read it together so it'll depend on if the hold lasts longer than it takes him to get through the others for me. I'm super excited about it! 6mo

4/5⭐ The story is a great weaving of a Rumpelstiltskin retelling with original plotlines. I loved the incorporation of so much German and Slavic folklore. The ending felt a little off since it started to shift more toward the original storylines without fully wrapping up the Rumpelstiltskin part, but I enjoyed the ride and am greatly looking forward to the sequel. #bookspinbingo @thearomaofbooks

Gilded by Marissa Meyer is an amazing fairy tale retelling that will appeal to fans of Little Thieves or Six Crimson Cranes. The story revolves around Serilda, a young woman whose only talent is spinning tales. One day, she tells the dark Erlking that she can spin straw into gold. Soon, she's kidnapped and given a night to do just that. Desperate, she makes a deal with a mysterious boy, and he grants her wish of spinning the straw into gold.
