Stars Above – 1.5 and 3.1

The Queen’s Army and Carswell Guide to Being Lucky. Two stories that moved me in different ways.

Series: The Lunar Chronicles

Author: Marissa Meyer

This one will be short and sweet, just wanted to showcase these 2 stories in the Stars Above compilation.

This may contain spoilers for those who had not read any of The Lunar Chronicles books. Beware.

The Queen’s Army (The Lunar Chronicles #1.5)

While I love these books, there is also something very savage about the Lunar stories. Worst of them all is seeing what children in Luna go through, like with this one and what Ze’ev had to face.

The Lunar Chronicles 4: Winter ❄️

It doesn’t usually happen that I find a book to have me gaping, almost screaming, nearly crying, laughing, insulting the characters, but the best ones do, or at least does that make you go in and be part of the story for real, feel all that they are feeling, intense, magical, heartwarming, all those little things we feel while reading Winter.

Series: The Lunar Chronicles

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Author: Marissa Meyer

Genre: Sci-fi, fantasy, romance (sort of), YA, Dystopia, Retellings

I think this is going to take a little while to come together. 

After all the scary moments, all the times I said, this is it, this is where she kills them, her, him, one of them is going to be left alone and wandering without love, then another of my fav would come into the scene and there I was again thinking the same, what a rollercoaster.

The Lunar Chronicles 3: Cress

It doesn’t usually happen, but Marissa sometimes manages to shock me and made me scream and curse at the pages of books, and I had some of those moments with Cress. And the last page took me by surprise, I was so engrossed in it, that I turned and when I saw the Acwnologements page my jaw fell. I knew I would finish this book way too quickly

The Lunar Chronicles 2: Scarlet

Book Series: The Lunar Chronicles 2

Author: Marissa Meyer

Genres: Young-Adult, Futuristic, Re-telling, Sci-fi

Recommendation: 4.5 ⭐

I liked it, a lot, I think more than Cinder, however for letting us hanging at the beginning in such a way, we wanted more of Kai and Cinder, and instead were greeted by a stranger, for that and for not grasping my attention as I know it should have been grasped, because of it, 4.5 of 5.

Now my thoughts on the whole thing, you will be surprised by how much I liked it.

The Lunar Chronicles 1: Cinder

By Marissa Meyer

Cinder, book 1 in The Lunar Chronicles, a futuristic twist to the classic story of Cinderella.

This one will be short, since for the first time I do not have much to say. Marissa Meyer knew how to grab all those beloved characters from classic fairy tales that we know and love, and somehow mixed them into a world of more wonder with a few splashes of enough strangeness to keep you guessing. Let us begin.
