Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Reading Scarlet for the third time was all kinds of precious. I had forgotten how much I loved this book. I mean, I knew I loved it like crazy, but still. Reading it again just now reminded me of how much I love this book. And why. I'm so glad that I'm re-reading these books right now. They mean so much to me. Sniffs. And Marissa is the most awesome author. I adore her. So excited about all her upcoming books. Anyway. I shall try my best to speak about my love for Scarlet. Which might be difficult. But I will try.

The writing is all kinds of beautiful. And the story is so exciting and fast and heartbreaking and just the very best. I adore all of the characters. Cinder and Kai are still my favorite characters, but, well, I do think that I love all the characters just as much. Because oh, how I loved reading about Scarlet and Wolf again. They are both incredible. And so cute. I adore them so much. And I need more. And knowing what is coming in Cress is breaking my heart. I cannot take it. Yet dying to read Cress again next. Can't wait.

This book is about a new character, Scarlet. But it is still about Cinder, and there is still a lot of point of views from her. And from Kai too. And that was awesome. I love how Marissa managed to write them all into one book. And then even more characters in Cress. And even more in Winter in a few weeks, ack. So excited. But anyway. I love how these books connect. How it is all just one big story, and we get to meet some precious new characters for each book. And oh, how I loved them all. Scarlet was the best.

My favorite part of the book was getting to know Scarlet. She is such an amazing character. I adore her like crazy. Her hair is fierce. And her personality even more so. I love how she stands up for herself and others. How brave she is. How she just wants to save her grandma. And oh, her grandmother. I cannot. My heart is breaking. Reading about that one scene in the prison was the most heartbreaking thing ever. Well, so far. It was so sad. So evil. Yet I loved it like crazy. Her grandma was awesome to read about.

Another favorite part was reading about Scarlet and Wolf together. I loved how they met. The time they spent together. How they got to know each other. And even though they only spent such little time together, they both like the other so much. It is the cutest. Their romance is adorable yet also oh so heartbreaking. Sniffs. I just want them together and happy and in love. Wolf was such an amazing character. I adored reading about him. My heart broke for him too. Sad face. He was so interesting.

Then he was pulling her toward him and bundling her up in his arms. 
Scarlet gasped as Wolf buried one hand into her mess of curls and kissed her back.

There was so much that I loved about Scarlet. I don't know how to talk about all of it. It is such an easy book to read. Yet I spent some time dreading what would come, lol, as I already knew it. Yet I loved every moment. It is such an intense book. So much happens. A lot of awful things. And gorgeous things. The plot is all kinds of exciting. And getting to know the characters more was so good too. I also adored getting to know Thorne more. He's an awesome and weird new character in this book. I liked him a lot.

There wasn't much of my precious Kai in Scarlet. But I loved what little there was. He's amazing to read about. But oh, my heart is aching for him all the time. He has no one to love him. No one to help him. Well, he has Torin, whom I liked, but it isn't the same as having someone to care for him. Hmph. I wish for that for Kai a lot in Winter. Fingers crossed. Anyway. I adored reading about all of the characters in this book. They are all amazing, interesting and exciting to read about. Couldn't have loved them more.

I'm not going to say more about Scarlet. I might have said most of this before; I'm not sure. But either way, I wanted to share my thoughts about reading this precious book for the third time. I loved it so much. There books are just the best. The story is so exciting. Ack. If any of you still haven't read Scarlet, then I don't know what you are waiting for. It is such a perfect sequel. One that everyone should read. Right away. I cannot begin to explain to you how much I love these books. I love them the most.


  1. I wish I have the time to do this too. It'll be nice to get a refresher course.

  2. I still need to re-read this whole series! Scarlet is definitely my favorite. Her and Wolf are perfect together. *sigh*
    Love that your re-reading these hon and sharing your thoughts! Winter is so close!

  3. So glad that you loved Scarlet even more after picking it up the second time, you shall be pleased to know that I finally picked up Scarlet today, here's hoping I enjoy it just as much as you did :)

  4. Scarlet is a great character and although on my re-read the romance felt a lil bit too instantaneous, I still love them both and adore the book! I still need to finish my re-read of Cress, but so excited to get Winter finally NEXT WEEK!!
