Gilded by Marissa Meyer is the first in an as yet untitled series or trilogy and a haunting retelling of Rumpelstiltskin. Addictive, dark, and romantic, this fairytale will sweep you away and have you checking the phases of the moon.
Heartless by Marissa Meyer
I was ecstatic when I picked up a signed copy of Heartless by Marissa Meyer at BEA 2016. I love her Lunar Chronicles series and have long been a fan of Alice in Wonderland penned by Lewis Caroll. Everyone loves to hate the antagonist the Queen of Hearts, who declared, “off with his head” at the slightest provocation.
Winter by Marissa Meyer
Winter is the last book in the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer and at over eight hundred pages; Meyer took readers on one heck of a ride as we faced down Queen Levana. It was brutal, intense and frustrating. Winter was epic, beautifully written and a brilliant retelling.
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Whenever I review a book from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer I immediately want to go all fangirl. Cress introduces “Rapunzel”, and is perhaps the strongest book in the series to date. Mini review: Intense and emotional with twists and turns that will hold you spellbound.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Cinder earned a spot on my top ten young adult reads in 2012 making Scarlet one of my most anticipated reads for 2013. The dystopian world and characters she created in Cinder captured my heart. Scarlet hailed as a companion book offers a retelling of Red Riding Hood and drops her right into Cinder’s world; it was captivating, original, filled with danger and I loved every minute of it.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Cinder is Marissa Meyer’s debut novel, and in this readers opinion she knocked the ball out of the park for a Grand Slam home run. Cinder offers a futuristic, steampunk re-telling of the fairytale Cinderella. The world-building is magical with amazing characters and a plot that has endless possibilities. Meyer’s writing style is lovely and the tale was beautifully written. While some of the tale is very predictable Meyer’s creates a storyline and world that are both unique and fascinating.
