Young Adult Book Review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
I finally found time this summer to pick up the second book of The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. I wasn’t sure I would be into Scarlet so much because I loved Cinder and entire first book is told from Cinder’s point of view, and Scarlet changes that up, but I quickly fell in love with Scarlet.
Cinder is loosely based on Cinderella, and Scarlet is loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood, but she’s strong and fearless and easy to love. Just as the entire futuristic world of the Lunar Chronicles is easy to love.
I’ve already started reading Cress, who is loosely based on Rapunzel, though I’ve left that book at home while I roam the country on my epic road trip, more on that later.
