I’ve been waiting for Marissa Meyer’s new stand-alone novel, Heartless, ever since news of its release dropped. As a fan of her Lunar Chronicles series, I had really hit hopes for this novel, and I wasn’t disappointed. I received a copy of the book earlier this year when I attended the YallWest Book Convention in Santa Monica, California. It […]

Book Review: Winter (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Winter (The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer

Author Melissa Meyer’s long-awaited conclusion to her popular The Lunar Chronicles series was finally released this month, and it was everything I hoped it would be. Winter gives readers more insight into the titular character who has been very important from the beginning, but not as well fleshed out. The novel picks up right after the third […]

Book Review: Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles)

Book Review: Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles)

The Good…: Author Marissa Meyer gives fans of The Lunar Chronicles a behind-the-scenes look at the evil Queen Levana. Despite showing what made Levana who she’s become, Meyer still manages to keep Levana an unsympathetic character. Whether or not this was her intent, I appreciated this. Too many times authors try to rehabilitate villains to make the […]

Book Review: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles)

Book Review: Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles)

The Good…: Marisa Meyer’s The Lunar Chronicles returns with Scarlet. Meyer’s retelling of the classic fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood, gets spun on its head when Red (“Scarlet”) sets out to unravel the mystery of her grandmother’s disappearance. Along the way she meets Wolf, a street fighter, who may be tied to Grandmother’s disappearance. Tough and quiet, Scarlet must decide […]
