My library love affair

The adventures of a geeky girl and her love of books. Yes I smell them, and they smell like adventure <3 Where shall we go today?


Cinder & Scarlet

Scarlet - Marissa Meyer Cinder  - Marissa Meyer

I enjoyed the start of this series more then I was expecting. Usually I'm skeptical about retellings of classic fairy tales but I really loved this twist on the classic. Set in a future with hover cars and cyborgs we meet Cinder.


I found the first book to move at a steady pace. It kept my interest from the first few chapters all the way through to the end, and when I finished I wanted to go out and find the second book to continue the series.


I moved straight on to book two - Scarlet and we meet new characters and continue on with the story that Cinder started. I recommend reading them in order as the story continues throughout the series. I did find the plot to be a bit predictable in places but still enjoyed the ride.


I would recommend this YA book to any looking for a quick, enjoyable read. The language is clean and the content clean as well. The book carries you through young crushes, the trial of life with an evil stepmother & sister, plague, the heartache of death and other similar themes.


I'm looking forward to reading book three in the series, Cress, set to be released February 4th, 2014
