I guess that not every genre can work for everyone, but it ’ s lways unfortunate to learn something like his.

I just realise how dramatic my confession must have sounded, but I an ’ t elp it if that ’ s how I felt at that time.But, the thing is, after reading Cinder, Scarlet and some of their short stories and LOVING all of them – Scarlet the most however – I realized that, in book world too, it is not exclusively black or brown.

ow that this ‘ ‘ problem ’ ’ has been resolved, I hall start working my way to – at least – tolerating horror reads, heh.Why I preferred this sequel to the last novel is probably due to the act that this continuation to the Lunar Chronicles series contained multiple POVs, unlike Cinder did, of what I kno.

I do not now that this is neve an amazing book, but dammit, it was exhilarating.

Seems kind of scared to read he equel to ook you disliked so much, right?

It till feels very much like a light, YA sci-fi and yet the fire in his book give the pages fly by and the characters appeal to me.

I was lucky to score an advanced copy of Scarlet from Marissa Meyer while at Comic Con.Totally me.I was in the middle of the book which I quickly finished in order to start this.

Scarlet opens by introducing us to he new character in his universe, aptly named Scarlet who is looking for her missing Grandmother and along the way meets a ysterious guy who goes by Wolf.

I, like I 'm sure most will be, was more concerned with what was happening with Cinder and Prince Kai than I was with Scarlet and her journey.

But Meyer 's storytelling would not let that be, and I found myself eagerly enjoying Scarlet 's feisty personality while also searching for how Scarlet would come to meet Cinder.

In terms of plot, Scarlet suffers from predictability issues, partly because he story follows Little Red Riding Hood and partly because much of Wolf 's character is spoiled by The Queen 's Army.

I hink I shoul have enjoyed Scarlet more if Wolf 's history had been a mystery.

( view spoiler) [ There was no question in my ind that Wolf was going to betray Scarlet and that his finding her was all part of plan because of the airytale.

( hide spoiler) ] While there is no love at irst sight between Scarlet and Wolf, the love between them comes out of no where and is baseless.

( view spoiler) [ Despite having met only a week prior and having spent maybe two days together total, by the beginnin of story they have fallen in love, risked their lives for each other, and ask to be life partners.

( hide spoiler) ] Kai 's solution to the Lunar problem also makes absolutely no logical sense.

( view spoiler) [ His decision to marry Queen Levana does n't preven the Lunar threat, and, in act, increases it.

While I did actuall enjoy Scarlet, I do think most people who liked Cinder will like this one as well.

The things people loved about Cinder are still true in Scarlet.

nce Upon a Time, there was the little girl ( let 's call her Rina) who loved fairytales.

She wa to study, she wa to finish her incredibly boring/difficult essay and being a perfectionist she barely had enough time to sleep, let alone read.

But she trie to ead, to get lost inside her books, to travel in faraway lands and witness the upcoming war between Earth and Luna.

In th esperate ffort to balance her life goals, she stayed up all night to finish Scarlet so that there could n't hav any distractions from her studies.Pathetic excuse, I expect.

She read it because Marissa Meyer had the wondeful ability to ake her forget her fears, her insecurities and worries and instead she introduced her to the world where Cinderella was a cyborg and a fugitive who tried to ome to terms with the revelations that changed her life, where the Big Bad Wolf was a oy that tried to control his bloodlust and questioned the way he was raised, where Little Red was a feisty girl who coul do everything to ave her daughte and smugglers were extremely hot.

Rina found Scarlet 's story extremely addictive!

Rina could not predict his secrets and the reasons he acted this way, he hurt her many times but she always forgave him!
