Heartless by Marissa Meyer (review)

Heartless by Marissa Meyer (review)

I liked a number of things about the book. Like how many Wonderland characters I recognized, and felt true to themselves. (Like Cheshire!) I also liked reading about the various confections Cath made, and how when she dreamed about Jest, things would appear in her room, grown by the dreams. Jest was by far my favorite character. He was charming and sweet, mysterious and had so many magic tricks up his sleeve. (Can’t say much more due to spoilers…) The friendship between Cath and Mary Ann was really good too. They dreamed together about opening up their own bakery. And… Read more »

Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles #3.5) by Marissa Meyer (review)

I’m glad we got to learn more about Levana in this book. Some of it explains why she was such an evil person, but not all of it. She seems to have no remorse about making people do what she wants even from a young age. I loved that we got a lot of questions answered in the book.

I loved Cress! She was such a cute mix of naive wonder, and super hacker! She was constantly using daydreams to get her through situations that would otherwise send her screaming. Stranded in the middle of a desert with no idea where you are? No problem, she is now a brave explorer. Lots of people staring at her? She becomes a famous actress in her head. And yet, she is also a super brilliant computer wiz. Hacking into top secret places, learning access codes and other information known only to a handful of people or less. I loved how her… Read more »

Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer (review)

I loved this take on Little Red Ridinghood. It was even better than the first book. The story switches back and forth between Scarlet’s story, and Cinder’s story. But never in a way that feels choppy, or that leaves you with cliffhangers about what the other character is doing. Of the new characters, Wolf was by far my favorite. Wolf’s mannerisms and actions were a perfect blend of human and wolf. For some descriptions, I could picture in my head exactly what he was doing in that moment, and it was what I would expect an actual wolf’s reactions to… Read more »
