    Another Fun Addition To A Unique Series

    Ever since her brief cameo in CINDER, I've been eagerly waiting for a more "formal" introduction to Cress. I found her to be very unique, and I'm happy to say I was not disappointed! CRESS is a long book but it focuses a lot on character development. That said, there is a lot of action and adventure and, of course, a hint of romance. The story was pretty good and filled with a lot of work for the characters as they were separated across the stars. As far as the very main characters, Cress was just what I hoped she would be. Completely awkward but easy to relate to, a girl with imagination and hope and more strength that she gives herself credit for. Thorne's personality was what I thought it would be, but his interactions with Cress were super sweet and fun. New characters were introduced and older characters were expanded upon. Cinder was of course very strong and worked on growing as a responsible young woman who's thrown into a situation that she's not prepared for. Kai also got a little more time credited to him as he struggled to keep his country under control. Dr. Erland was a tragic character who's story and discoveries were intriguing and endeared him more than ever before to me. I absolutely love Wolf and Scarlet, and seeing her story really has me engaged into what will happen to her next. I didn't really like Jacin at all, though. I thought he was a jerk the entire time. That said, as with most characters written by Meyer, I'm sure there's more to him than meets the eye. Despite some slow pacing at times, the action was far more brutal and solid, especially at the end. I'm very excited to see where the rest of the story will wrap up, who the new characters will be, and if Levana can be defeated after all.

    Top Tier YA Fairy Tale Adaption

    W-O-W-Z-A. I love fairy tales and their adaptions, but Marissa Meyer takes this to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL. I haven't been this glued to a series in a very long time (almost a decade... back when I was in high school). It's seriously amazing that Marissa can pull my attention so well. Seriously, I just ordered the last book of this series. I have read almost an entire series in a few months, which is super rare for me as a reader. And, I have to say, this series pulled me out of my reading slump. It made me fall in love with reading again, so it'll have a special place in my heart. Onto the review: I did not enjoy this book as much as the first two, but it was still mind-blowing. The first half of the book did not pull my attention as much as I wanted it to, but I still love our little Crescent Moon... I mean, Cress. I even had to laugh because Cress and her lover boy gave me serious Tangled vibes. I'm not sure if that was intentional or not, but I dig the giggles! This book moves faster than the last two. There's twists and turns in almost every chapter and kept me thoroughly hooked. It was disappointing when I had to put the book down because I knew something else was going to happen. I also really enjoyed this book address Cress and her instant love for her rescuer. It felt like a parody as it was also participating fully in the narrative. At times, I felt like it was insta-love but then it'd go and make fun of it. By the end, Cress isn't fully in love with Captain Thorne so it did actually pay off. I'm rather impressed with how this YA tackled that trope. Seriously, Marissa got some real respect from me. And then, the ending. This book leaves on a bit of a cliffhanger (which I hate, by the way), but it did it in a very good way. The book had giggles but it also had absolute terror - murder, genocide and the likes. It seems weird to put that in a review about a fairy tale adaption, but it's true. There were some really bad scenes in this book to show how cruel Levana is. With one book left, Winter is going to have some seriously work to do (but we all know Marissa is a genius, so she'll be just fine). To top it off, this book had some seriously amazing one liners thrown in. Kai talking about his wedding vows was killing me - remove love, respect and joy - like, Marissa, you're killing it! The most frustrating parts of these books for me is the last section of the books either "extra content". I always think I'm getting 400-500 pages full of Lunar plot, but it seems like half the book is reader questions and Q&As with authors. It makes me feel a little cheated, but it obviously doesn't affect the story at all. It's just a pet peeve of mine. In the end, this book was another epic-ly fun read for me. I enjoyed every second of this book (even if it didn't live up to my super high standards). I absolutely will be reading Winter (it's being shipped as I type this!) and I can't wait to see what else Marissa does in her writing career. Books like these make my heart sing - they make my love of reading SO much stronger. But, she does raise my standards a lot higher for other authors... P.S. Thorne gives me Han Solo vibes and we all know I love Star Wars. <3 Five out of five crescent moons!

    She did it again!!!!

    Myers delivers another piece of literary genius in this third installment of the Lunar Chronicles. Unlike the second book where I didn't get a full understanding of the title character, in this edition I definitely got a good sense of Cress as a character. The Lunar shell is a meek, computer genius that dreams of a life of romance, freedom and bliss. I thought the character was a bit too naive compared to her predecessors but you start to understand where it comes from as you learn more about her personality and upbringing. Cress gets the whirlwind course in being free person and while she had to get with the program really fast, she catches on really nicely and matures into a pretty lovable character while still keeping the more endearing part of her naivety alive. In alibi think she makes a nice contrast to her predecessors Cinder and Scarlet. She's still a strong and capable character but a bit more softer and feminine. And as for her male counterpart, I couldn't get enough of Captain Thorne and his witty dialogue and i think he and Cress blend very well with their contrasting personalities. A good pairing. The story gets more nail biting as we get further into this war with Levana. I can't wait to see how the group pulls off this master plan especially since Levana is turning into a pretty formidable opponent in all of this. Cinder is becoming more and more of an incredible character so am I also anxious to see how she further grows into a leader and a revolutionary.

    Excellent blending

    I enjoy how all the storyline (viewpoints) blended together nicely to create the 3rd part of this journey. Definitely, a page turnner and cannot wait to see how the whole story will conclude.
