Book Review #1 – Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet_book_coverScarlet Benoit is a girl living with his grandmother in a farm. This is her story. This one is the modern day adaptation of The Red Riding Hood. Though you should know, this is nothing like it.

The next will be called Cress and will feature a uniquely new version of a classic character we’ve read about for years that is Rapunzel.

It’s amazing how Meyer can take words and spin tales that are so addicting. It makes you want to treasure those books forever, maybe bury them in a treasure chest (if you are pirate. Aye!) Or keep them in a locker where no one but you can find them.

Plotting, storytelling, introduction of conflicts, world building and character development, in a whole, were just fantastic.

Being a dystopian novel and as you should know, I love science fiction, I honestly loved this book. I’m a huge fan of any and every book that falls under this category. This book had much more to offer than the previous one, which I also loved reading. Mostly because there are two characters now. To whom we like to relate to and crush on. (Who doesn’t like a girl with a metal hand! :P)

Cinder and Scarlet are both unique characters with their own opinions, motivations, beliefs and of course, problems, a bundle of them.

A book you cannot miss and shouldn’t leave out of your reading list. If you haven’t yet read Cinder, the first book of the Lunar Chronicles. Go read it now and you’ll know what I’m so excited about.

I can’t wait for the next book to be released. Cress! I’m waiting for you.

I rate it 5/5.
