Fairest: Levana’s Story (The Lunar Chronicles 3.5) By Marissa Meyer

So this is Levana’s Story, how she became the cold-hearted, evil Queen she seemed like so far in the rest of the Series. Her story is part tragic, part idiotic, and part… I don’t even know what to call parts of her choices and history. It’ll make seeing how she acts moving forward interesting though, to see how the rest of her story will play out when it’s twisted in with Cinder’s Story.

The Lunar Chronicles: Cress By Marissa Meyer

AAAAAHHHHH!!

Cress Is… And then Scarlet..! And Poor Wolf! D: But but, Cinder! /Cinder!/

There’s just so much going on in this book, and it’s all so brilliant! There’s still lots to do though, for Cinder and the others. Lots and lots and oh man, sorry guys, I need the next story now! Eeee!!!

The Keepers #1: Museum of Thieves By Lian Tanner

I first found out about this book years ago, before I knew about Goodreads, through an online ‘spot the difference’ puzzle-game. The changing scenes from one stage to the next were intriguing, and when I found out the puzzle-game was based on a BOOK, well, I just had to read it!

And now I’ve returned to it! Goldie Roth lives in a city, where children are kept on ‘Guardchains’, tied to their parents or ‘Guardians’, and it’s her yearning for freedom that starts her on the path to a great, scary, wonderful adventure.

I can’t wait to read the rest of the series, I’d forgotten how awesome this story was, and I want to see just how Goldie and her friends handle the dangers still coming their way!

House of Many Ways (Howl’s Moving Castle #3) By Diana Wynne Jones

AAH!

I don’t see a 4th listed on Goodreads, but I wish there was!

Sophie, Howl, Calcifer, and even Morgan, are up to tricks and trouble once again, but again, they aren’t really the main characters! (They’re presence is still as powerful though! Never fear!)

This time it’s all about a young lady named Chairmain, and what happens while she’s looking after a Wizard’s house for him. Beyond that, it’s a lot of Howl-esque sorcery and Secrecy!

Castle in the Air (Howl’s Moving Castle #2) by Diana Wynne Jones

Magic takes a whole new twist in this story!

The Main Character is not the Wizard howl, or Sophie, or even Calcifer! Never fear though, they’re all here, but you’ll have to look rather closely to find them!

This struck me as a rather interesting spin for a retelling of Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, but there were certainly twists only Howl and his friends could bring about! If you liked Howl’s Moving Castle, don’t pass up this sequel just because it’s not focused on Howl or Sophie, you’ll be missing out on quite a lot of magic if you do!

The Lunar Chronicles: Scarlet By Marissa Meyer

AAAH!!

Okay so, So! If you Read this story without reading ‘The Queen’s Army’ FIRST, it might be a little weird and wonky, but I didn’t go that path, I read Queen’s army, and then THIS beautiful book, and it ALL MAKES SENSE! 8o

And the overall Story keeps growing! Eeee!! More secrets revealed, more info gained, more hints hinted at! I wanna see what happens next right away! Specially more of Cinder! I also wanna see what happens with Wolf, and Scarlet. I wanna see how their part of the story unfolds.

Glitches (The Lunar Chronicles 0.5) By Marissa Meyer

Having never read Cinder, I can’t say I have much understanding of the world this short story gives a glimpse of. It fills in the usual beginnings for a retelling pretty well. All the key elements were there. I’ll just have to see where it goes from here!
