I’d heard about the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer for a while, but I’d never gotten a chance to pick up the books. When I booked the awesome Marissa for my YA Lit series at 92Y, I knew I had to grab Cinder and start reading. I’m so glad I did! Cinder was a wonderful re-imagining of the Cinderella fairytale and had a total feminist take. After I devoured Cinder, I moved on to Scarlet and that is where I really fell in love with the series. Both Scarlet and Wolf are made of awesome sauce, and their story was more mature than Cinder and quite frankly pretty hot. I can’t wait to devour Cress!
Like I said before, I had booked Marissa for my YA Lit series, and I’m happy to report she is just as delightful as her books. The fans who came to the event were also a delight; they were very respectful and creative. It was such a wonderful event. Meeting such great authors and fans makes my job really worthwhile.
If you haven’t started the Lunar Chronicles yet, what are you waiting for? Don’t be scared of Queen Levana, go get Cinder and start reading!
