Cress – Marissa Meyer

“Maybe there isn’t such a thing as fate. Maybe it’s just the opportunities we’re given and what we do with them.”

Cress by marissa meyer

๐Ÿ“–โ€Cinder and Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together they are plotting to overthrow Queen Levana. Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood with screens as her only company, although that screen time has made her an excellent hacker. When an attempt to save Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price. Cress, Scarlet and Cinder May not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.โ€๐Ÿ“–


This series has me hook, line and sinker. Each book just gets better and better. I love how much creativity Meyer uses in retelling/rethinking these fairytale characters.

This was by far my favorite book in the series thus far. Cress and Thorne are my favorite characters in these stories and I donโ€™t think that opinion will change. Why? Because they are so REAL. They are flawed people, just like you and me. Cress is adorable! I loved her right away. Her naivete is so charming and cute. Pair that with Thorneโ€”good-looking, self obsessed, riotously funny and loveableโ€”and you have a pair who you will fall in love with.

This was by far the funniest book of the series, which is all due to Thorne. His hilarious foolery reminds me of a Gilderoy Lockhart, only maybe a bit smarter ๐Ÿ˜‚ There were some great one liners that made me physically laugh out loud.

Overall I continue loving this series, and I absolutely love the couple pairings. Iโ€™m super looking forward to the next book!
