[EPUB] ✶ Cress Author Marissa Meyer –

Well THAT was fun Why Why did I wait so long to read this series Cress Thorne Freaking cuteness overload Yep, I m going to talk about it because I may or may not have squealed aloud several times while reading this book They are easily one of my all time favorite ships.Cress herself is just so stinking cute She s so not like a typical heroine She s extremely intelligent but is primarily a daydreamer and tends to be swept up in her imagination Ahem that sounds familiar Anywayyyy I love how socially awkward and naive she is to the outside world And Thorne, who is obviously brother from another mother to Nikolai Lansov Grisha Trilogy because they are both so completely snarky, cocky, down right hysterical divas.So if it isn t already completely obvious I had some major Cress Thorne feels and their slow burn actually drove me a little nuts with my impatience I still need so muchI enjoyed them SO much They are so similar the characters in Tangled but different too Of course, they tended to take the front seat in this novel but the rest of the characters storylines were not far behind This book was definitely action packed and full of fun surprises Not to mention the hole left in my heart for Cinder Kia from book one definitely tugged at me again in this book Was it resolved I guess you ll have to see And Iko I did not expect her to take on a bigger role in this book but she easily became one of my favorite characters Such a pleasant surprise.The world building is still fairly mediocre to me nothing super unique but it wasfun just based on the fact that all the fairytales we grew up with are intertwined I still fail to see how Levana is anything beyond a typical evil villain I don t feel strongly about her I m hoping she getscomplex Additionally, while some of the other characters aren t as strong as others, their vastly different personalities kept me intrigued Plus, the plot was just down right fun The pacing was perfect in this one.Do I recommend this series Heck yeah I do So far all three books have been light and fun while still managing to get some pretty strong emotions out of me It s been a nice change of pace for me a refreshing break from my average fantasy reads SOOO here I go to book four I m hoping it doesn t disappoint because I STILL need so much resolution for my ships My Blog Instagram Twitter Etsy 4.5 Dannnnnnng that ending I totally get why a lot of people say this is their favourite in the series, it s definitely mine In This Third Book In The Lunar Chronicles, Cinder And Captain Thorne Are Fugitives On The Run, Now With Scarlet And Wolf In Tow Together, They Re Plotting To Overthrow Queen Levana And Her ArmyTheir Best Hope Lies With Cress, A Girl Imprisoned On A Satellite Since Childhood Who S Only Ever Had Her Netscreens As Company All That Screen Time Has Made Cress An Excellent Hacker Unfortunately, She S Just Received Orders From Levana To Track Down Cinder And Her Handsome AccompliceWhen A Daring Rescue Of Cress Goes Awry, The Group Is Separated Cress Finally Has Her Freedom, But It Comes At A Higher Price Meanwhile, Queen Levana Will Let Nothing Prevent Her Marriage To Emperor Kai Cress, Scarlet, And Cinder May Not Have Signed Up To Save The World, But They May Be The Only Hope The World Has FAVE.May or may not be because of Thorne It totally is. Maybe great, epic romances don t just happen We have to make them ourselves. Fun, lighthearted and delightful I absolutely love how each book in this series is better than the last As with the previous two, we have a fairytale themed futuristic dystopian adventure While each book follows a different couple, we get to catch up on the previous ones and get hints at the new This one focuses on Cress Rapunzel She s a Shell a Lunar who is immune to Lunar glamours She s spent her entire life in a satellite in orbit and while her isolation drives her a bit mad, but hey, at least she has the internet.And on that internet, she discovers Thorne excuse meCaptain Thorne He s the daring and dashing hero the defender of innocents, the savior of all things good and Cress is completely, and irrevocably enthralledCaptain, she murmured I think I m in love with youFinally, Cress makes a harrowing break for freedom and much to her delight, she is accompanied by Captain Thorne Only, she soon discovers that the man she s dreamed of for the last few years is nothing like the man before her A hand landed on Cress s head She gasped and recoiled, but Thorne was already wrapping his arm around her shoulders and squeezing her against him Just checking it was you, he whisperedWith the revolution starting and the plague spreading, does Cress even have the time to get to know the real Thorne Overall LOVED it Cress and Thorne have got to be my favorite couple I loved her joyful innocence and his blustery confidence cinched them as a couple in my mindHow are your eyes she asked Well, I ve been told they re dreamy, but I ll let you decide for yourselfCress and Thorne have such a natural chemistry Every time they were on screen I was ecstaticYeah, I guess you re right, he said, squeezing Maybe there s a little bit of a hero in me after all But really, Cress Only a littleIn addition, I feel like the other couples have gotten stronger in particular Scarlet and Wolf are really hitting it off However, Cinder Kai just don t click for me To be fair, they haven t been in the same room for a couple books I still maintain that Cinder EASILY could ve sent him an email and thus completely resolving the issues of book 2 and 3 Hopefully they will be together a bitlater on Anyway, I really feel like Marissa Meyer has hit her stride in this series the characters are fabulous, the banter is witty and the plot is just swimming along I could not beexcited to see how this series turns out P.S Is it just me or does Iko really need to fall in love Give the poor girl a robot boyfriend Audiobook CommentsRead by Rebecca Soler and she was a fabulous reader Cress sounded so freaking adorable throughout If you are curious about Rebecca Soler, check Tucker the Reader s interview Blog Instagram Twitter Even in the Future the Story Begins with Once Upon a TimeOnce Upon a Time, there was an avid reader let s call her Teri who lived and breathed words When she was sad, she bought a book to cheer her up When she was happy or successful, she bought a book to celebrate When she was worried, she bought a book to forget her problems One cold winter s night, she found herself in a magical place known as the Bookstore A place full of wonders and fairydust, a safe haven from a world so mundane and self destructive A place to be herself She spent hours strolling in the corridors illuminated by the brilliance of Luna, and when she left she took a piece of Luna with her She took CressI promise, I will not let you die without being kissedAfter Cinderella and Red Riding Hood, it was Rapunzel s time to contribute to the interplanetary efforts to ger rid of Evil Queen Levana and her bloodthirsty minions whose only life purpose was world domination and extermination of mankind And Cress story reminded Teri so much of Disney s Tangled that she kept trying and failed to supress the urge to squeal she will get angry if she finds out I told you this but she s watched Tangledthan five ten times When Cress crossed paths with the crew of Rampion and everything went to Hell, Teri wasn t sure whose story she wanted to follow the most Kai s decent attempts to make peace with his painful but noble decision, Cress and Thorne s adventures in the desert, Scarlet s struggles to survive, or Cinder and Wolf s journey and their unlikely alliance with Jacin Each chapter had magnetic powers with a hint of compulsion, and Teri s heart was ready to explode from the emotions that kept piling up Every feeling was a star and together they shaped a constellation so bright that Marissa Meyer could see it from her house and admire the effect of her work If she also rubbed her hands in a villain fashion, that I cannot tellMaybe there isn t such a thing as fate Maybe it s just the opportunities we re given, and what we do with them I m beginning to think that maybe great, epic romances don t just happen We have to make them ourselvesTeri wasn t sure if she liked Cress She was really naive, really childish and her fantasies were wilder than her hair But Teri couldn t help but admit that Marissa Meyer s ability to paint so many different yet interesting characters was admirable There were no similarities between Cinder, Scarlet and Cress besides the fact that their destinies were interwined, that the fate of Earth and Luna would be determined by their joint efforts and sacrifices The diversity and complexity of the female characters, the smart humour, the sassiness, the suspense, the action and the unpredictable turns of the events made Cress such an addictive book And the swoonworthy male leads And the sweet, innocent and pure romance.Teri was in love with Thorne His attempts to convince Cress that he was no hero or a good man but instead an opportunist thief that treated everything as a big joke failed when he showed compassion and kindness He was lost, but he had a hero quality that no one can question There was also Wolf Shy and awkward and scary and savage Wolf that loved Scarlet so much that made Teri weak in the knees.And Kai who was torn between his hope that Cinder actually cared for him and his anger for everything that happened is one of the characters that hold your heart and you don t even realize it And finally Jacin, who is cryptic and kind of an asshole but Teri is positive she ll fall for him in the next book But even though Thorne is Teri s favorite male character, Scarlet her favorite female character, Scarlet Wolf her favorite ship, the entire gang, their banters and their loyalty and friendship is after all the main reason the Lunar Chronicles is a series so special.P.S Wanna bet who is Teri Cinder review Scarlet review Winter review Stars Above review This is my 100th book of 2013 and it was magnificent NEED WINTER NOW When I first jumped on the Lunar Chronicles bandwagon, I was late to the party I tend to avoid any novel in the blogosphere that is garnering a ton of hype, due to past experiences where the hype completely killed my enjoyment However, I dove into Cinder trepidatiously and came out completely in love, mostly thanks to the sweet nostalgia feelings from the cleverly added Sailor Moon references And if that wasn t clear before, I m somewhat of a huge Sailor Moon fangirl Like, it s a little scary Perhaps you should run Unfortunately, with Scarlet, I didn t get the same warm fuzzies and I began to worry that this story was simply too big for Meyer to conquer Don t get me wrong, I did enjoy Scarlet, but the pacing and connection to the characters didn t happen for me It wouldn t be the first time I read a series where the best book was the first book So, again, I found myself wary for Cress, but those worries proved to be unnecessary Ahem, allow me to eat my words Cress is a complete improvement over Cinder and Scarlet Where Cinder had its issues with predictability, Cress s plot was noticeably tighter While Scarlet had parts where the pacing felt off due to the dual point of views, Cress kicked it up a few notches with perfectly timed highs and lows At no point did I find myself bored to tears, banging my head against the wall from frustration, throwing the book across the room, or simply suffering from major disappointment It s action packed, well plotted, and exciting I should probably take this time to mention that if you haven t read Cinder and Scarlet, 1 it s time to re examine your life choices 2 the rest of the review may contain slight spoilers for the first two books But you should know by now, that s just how I roll.The novel begins with the gang Cinder, Thorne, Scarlet, Wolf, and Iko on a mission to rescue Cress from her satellite STUFF happens and things go horribly wrong, causing them to separate What I loved about this was it gave the reader the perfect opportunity to get to know each individual character in aintimate manner Thorne and Cress end up stranded in the Sahara Desert, which is interesting because Cress has never stepped foot on Earth and being isolated for years didn t exactly grant her the best social skills, and due to certain circumstances on the satellite, Throne is left blind I didn t like this one bit How could Meyer do this to my precious Throne MY PRECIOUSSS MY PRECIOUSSS He is sacred and must not be touched Still, it makes for an unlikely team and optimal time for character development and revelations The only thing that I m not too sure of is the romance brewing Why does everyone in this series have to be paired up with someone There is absolutely nothing wrong with self love Even Oprah knows this That s probably something you never wanted to see Welcome to a Steph Sinclair review.Cinder on the other hand, struggles with decisions that she made on the satellite, ultimately leading to unfortunate outcomes for both Scarlet and Wolf Can she really do this, lead people and start a rebellion Should she simply give up and continue hiding from Levana Is she slowly becoming the very woman whom she fears She s conflicted for most of the novel and tends to second guess herself a lotonce she realizes how severe the consequences of her actions can be Basically, Cinder is no Mary Sue and carries mistakes and flaws just like any other character in this series.Scarlet is not as present in Cress, but her role looks like it ll beimportant in the final installment, Winter I can t really talk about what Scarlet endures in this novel because I m tip toeing around a minefield of spoilers here, but I was very surprised to see how far Meyer was willing push her character s limits And if you ve already read Cress, I think you know exactly what scene I m referring to Can we say, SHIT JUST GOT REAL I m resisting the urge to throw in a Brace Yourself meme.Oh, what the hell Overall, I m left both amazed and impressed with Cress I can confidently say that this series just gets better and better and I d consider this my favorite so far With the sneak peek of the newest character, Winter she s adorably certifiable , at the end, I m eagerly waiting for the final book Gimme, Gimme, Gimme An ARC was received from the publisher for an honest review.More reviews and other fantastical things at Cuddelbuggery. Her satellite made one full orbit around Planet Earth every sixteen hours It was a prison that came with an endlessly breathtaking view vast blue oceans and swirling clouds and sunrises that set half the world on fire Whatcan I possibly say about this series that I haven t already mentioned in Scarlet and Cinder That Marissa Meyer is an auto buy authorCheckThat her writing makes me feel everythingCheckThat this world made me somehow enjoy its dystopian natureCheckThat I M ATTACHED TO A CAST OF CHARACTERS LIKE THORNE AND CINDER AND CRESS AND IKO AND WOLF AND SCARLET AND KAI AND AND I NEED TO CALM DOWNChecksort off That there are unexpected plot twists and turnsCheckThat there are lots of intense, gripping momentsCheckThat there are lots of brutal action well to be fair, it only got brutal in the middle of Scarlet, all the way through to CressCheckI m also crying for Wolf because view spoiler he called Scarlet hisbrightest star , now that s so much better than alpha hide spoiler THIS BOOK DEFINITELY LIVED UP TO THE HYPE FOR ME OH MY GAHHHHH ACTION ADVENTURE MADNESS BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY MY NEW SHIP THORNE AND FREAKING CRESS I LOVE THEM TOGETHER SO MUCH AHHHH sorry not sorry for my not so professional review ALL THE CAPS LOCK ALL OF IT. BEFORE READINGOH MY GOD I THINK I HAVE MADE A MIRACULOUS DISCOVERY So, I was re reading Cinder when I came upon the part where Dr Erland is explaining why he hates the Queen so much and it s because his daughter who is a shell was supposedly murdered by the Queen His daughters name is Crescent Moon CRESCENT MOON CRESCENT SHORT FOR CRESS BY ANY CHANCE That was not my only discovery but, we all know that the 4th book called Winter will be about Snow White Does anyone else remember in the beginning where Cinder was talking about all the rumors about the Queen and said They said she forced her stepdaughter to mutilate her own face because, at the sweet age of thirteen, she had becomebeautiful than the jealous queen could stand MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL WHOSE THE FAIREST OF THEM ALL I may be wrong this is just a guess AFTER READINGOh my This book was just am Characters were absolutely incre Plot was spot o.Seriously I don t even know where to begin this review for this undeniable master piece of a novel For one, it totally lived up to every single one of my expectations which was pretty surprising since I had such high expectations there s nothing worse then hyping up a novel movie event so much that when you do read watch go to it , it s all a bit anti climatic because of all these impractical hopes you had So when I did read Cress I was in absolute awe on how much I loved it The characters were all so dearly loveable and each one of them had a clear distinct personality Thus when reading all the different point of views you could clearly distinguish a unique voice making each chapter a refreshing breath of new air As for the new characters Cress was a brilliant actress in the making and captured the dreamer inside of us all perfectly I particularly adored how Meyer made view spoiler Cress totally idealize Thorne Took away the fabricated fascination Yet, she still had the ability to make Thorne perfectly imperfect hide spoiler
