Book Reviews: The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

LOVED. LOVED. LOVED this book.

The writing is excellent! The character development is excellent! The plotting (throughout the series) is excellent!

My only pet peeve with series is that I wish each book had a stand-alone plot. I enjoy series, because I love getting to know the characters and following them from book to book. But lately in the book world, a lot of series end on cliff hangers or simply an unfinished plot line.

However, I loved this book so much, I did not even care that the story wasn't finished on the last page of the book. I simply picked up the next book in the series and kept reading.

So ... you might as well buy them all. I did.

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

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

At first, I was sad when book two did not pick up immediately with Cinder, but I quickly fell in love with Scarlet and Wolf. I have trouble keeping track of a lot of characters, but Marissa Meyer does a great job of reminding the reader of what's going on when the point of view shifts to a different character. I immediately started book three when I finished this one. There is violence, but there's no sex or foul language. Readers of most any age would enjoy this series, especially if you enjoy a retelling of Cinderella and Red Riding Hood. :) Oh, that pesky wolf.

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)Cress by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

And guess what? Even after book three ... I am totally and completely in love with this series and this author. Marissa Meyer has done an excellent job developing the plot and characters. The plot continues from book to book, and story questions remain unanswered at the end of each book. I would highly recommend these books to anyone and everyone.
