Currently Reading: The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

If you like any sort of post apocalyptic society type books (Hunger Games, Divergent, etc.), The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer is for you! I feel like the biggest nerd when I talk about these books because they have characters called Lunars who live on the moon and cyborgs - humans with mechanical elements built into their bodies and they are computer programmed - and all of this sci-fi-esque content. There are 4 full length novels and 2 novella type books that give a little more insight into the backstory of specific characters. Each of the full length novels is based off of a different fairytale and they all intertwine into some edge-of-your-seat/must-know-what-happens-next goodness!

Book 1: Cinder is based off of Cinderella if you couldn't guess that already.
Book 2: Scarlet is based off of The Little Red Riding Hood.
Book 3: Cress is based off of the story of Rapunzel.
Book 4: Winter is based off of Snow White.

Novella 1: Fairest is all about the evil queen and why she turned out to be so completely twisted.
Novella 2: Stars Above is the backstory to the several of the other characters and how they came to be.

I'm currently reading the 4th book and I cannot tell how it's all going to end! All of the books so far have such a good balance of action and love included in the stories so they keep me fully entertained the entire way through. If you've read The Lunar Chronicles and loved them, let me know what you are currently reading because we obviously have similar tastes :)

Happy reading! xoxo, Chelan
