This was just Fun!!
Cinderella would be proud!!
Inventive and Invigorating. Surprisingly original and refreshing for a fairy tale retelling!
I really did love this story. Even if the world building fell short, just a tiny bit, it certainly didn't take any thing away from the awesomeness of the story :) I loved all the characters, the bad ones, the sick ones, the androids and even the stepsisters.
I especially loved Cinder's character. Even with grease stained clothes and cyborg parts. She is just a teenage girl, who's witty and smart, and a highly skillful mechanic. She faces strenuous obstacles like a fatal plague, a persistent Prince and an unpleasant Stepmother. All she wants to do is run away from it all but she can't.....
Not after what she has just found out!
Her world is on the brink of an Intergalactic war with the Lunars. Cinder is caught in the middle of it all and we won't know what will happen because of the bloody cliffhanger!
That's okay! hahaha I have the next book, which I've already started reading (and love so far)
That's one good reason why I'm glad it took me so long to read this series. Now I don't have to wait for the next... OH WAIT!!!!!
There's one more book. "Winter" and it doesn't come out til next year.
I guess I'll just try and read the rest of Scarlet and Cress really
But seriously, If you haven't read this book yet, I highly recommend that you do! A simply spectacular story!! And if you get the chance, listen to it on audio. I listened to it while driving in my car. Half the time I found myself parked in my driveway after running errands just listening away. It's extremely entertaining!!!
Check out my complete and full review at:
It's hard to believe that this day has finally come.
It feels like I waited forever to read this book and finally write my feelings about it. While I was anticipating the release of the book I could not help but read the reviews on it, which just added fuel to my anticipation.
Everything said about this book is true! It is phenomenal, brilliant and bold. This book just dominates all other dystopian's. It kick all of their butts. RIGHT IN THE ARSE!
So I'll make this quick and not go into what the book is all about. You can read the summary/blurb about the book or you can read any of the following reviews above and below this one. I'm simply here to let y'all know that:
YOU GOT TO GO AND GET THIS BOOK!! READ IT!!!
This book will make you feel emotions you never thought you could possible feel. For instance, this book brought me to tears and brought the most outrageous crying sounds out of me. I sounded barbaric!!
Once that subsided the rage came.
This book was Intense. Nail biting, edge of the seat, what the fuck is going to happen, INTENSE!!! This book deserves the hype it's getting and Pierce Brown deserve a reward for writing such an extremely fierce story. I can not wait to read more about the heroic Darrow, to see how much more awesome he get the older he becomes.
But here we are again. Playing the waiting game, anticipating the release for Red Rising's second installment. UUUGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
It is a vicious cycle that we must succumb to when we are introduced to a new series. A pain that I will suffer continuously!
Oh well! Til next time! Go read this book! and HAPPY READING Y'ALL!
