Worth The Hype? Cinder & Scarlet

July 24, 2015 in Bookish Posts, Worth The Hype?, YA, YA Fantasy

I read a lot of bookish blogs and invariably there are titles that appear again and again, usually because they are adored and highly recommended. The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer definitely fits into this category.  I’ve just finished the second book, Scarlet (so no spoilers please) but as I closed the back cover last night I wondered…

was that worth the hype-

The answer is simple, a resounding YES!

I’ve had Cinder and Scarlet on my shelves for a while but I must admit I was nervous to read them. Would my expectations be too high? I’d heard only great things about the series. They are a regular feature in many Top Ten Tuesday lists. Basically, everything I’d seen lead me to believe these books would be awesome and I was nervous that they might not live up to their hype. I needn’t have feared, they absolutely do! So far I’ve found this series to be fascinating, gripping, clever and, quite frankly, brilliant.


I’m just about to start Cress but I felt the need to gush about the first two books in the series. I’m not going to review them though, there are plenty of reviews out there on this series. If you want to know more then check out the Goodreads pages (links above)

Right, I’m off to start Cress now – I can’t wait to see where the story goes from here!

Have you read this series? Without any spoilers, do you think this series is worth the hype?
