Memory Lane Monday: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Have you heard about the new format?

Memory Lane Monday will now consist of five simple questions I will answer about a book I haven't reviewed. Most likely this will be books that have been out for a year+ or novellas that I feel are too short to dedicate an entire review to. 

So, without further ado, let's get started!

This week's Memory Lane Monday is...
Scarlet By: Marissa Meyer
The fates of Cinder and Scarlet collide as a Lunar threat spreads across the Earth...                                                                                                                                       
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She's trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she'll be the Commonwealth's most wanted fugitive.                                                                                                                              
Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

1) You've got five words! Describe the book!

Cinderella meets Red Riding Hood!

2) Pick a quote. Any quote.

“I knew they would kill me when they found out, but…” He struggled for words, releasing a sharp breath. “I think I realized that I would rather die because I betrayed them, than live because I betrayed you.” 

3) Hit, Miss or Meh?

Hit! This sequel to the Lunar Chronicles does not disappoint!

4) Best or Worst Quality...

Best Quality:  The fact that Marissa Meyer manages to keep pushing Cinder's storyline forward while also introducing and tying in Scarlet & Wolf's storyline into the main plot !  In short, she makes multiple POV's really work!

5) Most Memorable Character...

Thorne, a male character who is equally hilarious and lovable  :P

Have you read Scarlet?  What did you think about reading from so many different POVs? Be sure to let me know in the comments below! Keep Reading!
