Review- Scarlet by Marissa Meyer


Scarlet
Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 5 2013
Hardcover: 464 pages
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends (Macmillan)
ISBN: 0312642962

Rating: Obsessed!
From Goodreads.


Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-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 and 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 has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.

 Holy crap Scarlet was flipping fantastic! I loved Cinder and how Marissa turned a fairy tale into something new and sci-fi but, kept the Cinderella elements there. She did the same with Scarlet but in my opinion she did it even better!

What I loved about this book is we still get Cinder’s POV but we also get Scarlet’s as well and now we have two kick ass heroines in one book! Also we get to see Kai’s POV (but not very much I hear he has a bigger part in Cress) and a newcomer Captain Carswell Thorne who is so funny he made me snort in a few parts! The one character I was really intrigued by was Wolf. When I met Marissa all she would say was “He’s sexy… a street fighter with a dark and mysterious past. That’s all I can say for now.” Ok well she had me hooked with sexy lol but, what I didn’t expect was that I’d fall so damned hard for this guy. Prince Kai fans may not; they are two completely different people but I like my guys a little rough around the edges and Wolf was definitely that! He now owns my heart completely. Don’t get me wrong I still love Kai but he’s not my dude.

Scarlet is Red Riding Hood on steroids people! This story has so much action and pure craziness you will love it!  I love that Marissa seemed to up the sci-fi aspect too more ships and aliens, also more danger and swoon-worthy moments! I cannot tell you how much I am dying to read book 3 Cress now! 

This wait is going to suuuccckkkkkk!!!!!

I chose a couple passages because I couldn’t choose just one lol.

Cinder and Thorne:

“It seems that you’ve stumbled into the wrong jail cell. Do you need directions to get back to yours?”

She blinked.

Thorne smiled.

The girl frowned.

Her irritation made her prettier, and Thorne cupped his chin, studying her. 

He’d never met a cyborg before, much less flirted with one, but there was a first time for everything.

“These cells aren’t supposed to be occupied,” she said.

“Special circumstances.”

She surveyed him for a moment, her brows knitting together. “Murder?”

His grin grew. “Thank you, but no. I started a riot on the yard.” He adjusted his collar, before adding, “We were protesting the soap.”

Her confusion grew, and Thorne noticed that she was still in her defensive stance.

“The soap,” he said again, wondering if she’d heard him. “It’s too drying.”

She said nothing.

“I have sensitive skin.”

Scarlet and Wolf:
“It wasn’t me,’ He said, his tone unwavering. “There are other tattoos like mine. It was someone else.”

“Oh, really? Like you’re part of some cult or something?” The feathered body of one of the chickens pressed against her leg and she started, barely managing to keep the gun level.

“Or something,” he said with a flinching shrug. One foot crunched against the gravel.

“Don’t come any closer!” Scarlet yelled. The chicken clucked and dawdled away. 

“I will shoot, you know.”

“I know.” A flicker of kindness passed over him and he pointed at his temple. 

“You’ll want to aim for the head. That usually makes for a fatal shot. Or, if you’re feeling shaky, the torso. It’s a larger target.”

“Your head looks pretty big from here.”

He laughed—the expression changing everything about him. His stance relaxed, his face warmed.

Review- Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi


Unravel Me
Tahereh Mafi
Release Date: February 5, 2013
Hardcover: 480 Pages
Publisher: Harper Teen
ISBN: 0062085530
Source: ARC from the Publisher
Rating: Obsessed
From Goodreads.


tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life.

I loved Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi but, I will admit that with the twist at the end I was a little afraid of where she might be taking the sequel. Was it going to be more like X-Men? Was it going to lose its beautiful lyrical style? Were there going to be more strike-throughs? What would happen to this beautiful relationship that Juliette and Adam had formed? And most importantly what happened to Warner? Because yes people I am Team Warner and damned proud of it!

Tahereh took my worries and quickly put them at ease. Dare I say Unravel Me was better than Shatter Me? I think I will! Where Shatter was brilliant Unravel dazzled! It was another beautifully written story that had me screaming, pulling my hair, swooning, crying (bawling actually), and left me absolutely speechless!

I won’t go into much detail as to where the story goes because I don’t want to be yelled at for posting spoilers. I actually got yelled at on twitter for posting page numbers! Yes just page numbers people not even what was going on! Let me just say we meet more people with unique gifts some are pretty damned cool. Also there are some really cool twists to the story that left me saying “No Way!”. We also get more of our favorite characters; don’t worry Team Adam people there’s plenty of him in this book! We also get to know Kenji better and I absolutely fell in love with his charismatic smile, quick wit, and snark. If Warner didn’t have my heart completely Kenji would. I will say Juliette’s adjustment to being around people left her kind of whiny and standoffish but, that is only in the first part of the book. And my Warner *sighs*, my Warner he is so amazing! You get to see a more human side; and yes people I know that were adamant Warner haters who have read Unravel now love him too! Don’t believe me? Read the book when it comes out!

I chose a couple passages that I loved each for different reasons……

Adam and Juliette:

Adam isn’t looking at me anymore but he’s not letting go, either. I lean forward and leave a light kiss on his heart. He finally meets my eyes. Offers me a smile, pained smile.

“I love you,” I tell him, quietly, so only he can hear me.

He exhales a short, uneven breath. Whispers, “You have no idea,” and pulls himself away. Pivots on one heel. Heads out the door.

My heart is beating in my throat.

The girls are staring at me. Concerned.

Sonya is about to speak, but then.

a switch

a click

a flicker

and the lights are out.

Warner (sighs) and Juliette:

“Do you know,” he says, closing the cover of the journal only to lay his hand on top of it. Protecting it. Staring at it. “I couldn’t sleep for days after I read that entry. I kept wanting to know which people were chasing you down the street, who it was you were running from. I wanted to find them,” he says, so softly “and I wanted to rip their limbs off, one by one. I wanted to murder them in ways that would horrify you to hear.”

I’m shaking now, whispering, “Please give that back to me.”

He touches the tips of his fingers to his lips. Tilts his head back, just a little. Smiles a strange unhappy smile. Says, “You must know how sorry I am. That I”---he swallows---“That I kissed you like that. I confess I had no idea you would shoot me for it.”

Top 10 of 2012 Day 4- Book Boyfriends of 2012 and a Giveaway!



Today’s post is a long one so bear with me! It’s Best Book Boyfriends of 2012 (MUST be from a book released in 2012 and from a book you've READ in 2012)

And make sure to stop by my co-hosts sites Fiktshun, Confessions of a Bookaholic, A Life Bound By Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads for their lists! Oh and make sure to sign up with the linky to share your lists! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway! Details at the bottom of this post.

This is by far one of the hardest categories for me! There’s so many swoon-worthy guys so there are honorable mentions but they deserved to get as much attention as the others! I’m not doing covers for this post I’m sharing quotes and scenes from the books!

1. Hector de Ventierra from The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson. He will always be in my heart and he will always be on my top 10 list. Anyone who says this deserves it!
But Hector chuckles deep in his throat, and I feel it all the way down to my toes. Softly he says, “My life has ever been yours, Elisa.”

My limbs tingle and heat fills my cheeks as we stare at each other.

I snap back to myself. He’s talking about his duty. Of course his life is mine. He is Queen’s Guard, after all, sworn to jump in front of a crossbow bolt if that’s what it takes to save me.

Carefully I say, “You’re a good friend, Hector. And I’m grateful to have you at my side.”

His gaze drops to the ground, and his chest rises and falls with a breath. “Always.”

2. Gavriel Duval from RL LaFever’s Grave Mercy. He is one of the most romantic dudes on my list at least in my mind. I swoon whenever I think of him. One of my favorite scenes with him in it check this!
“I fear it is what my convent expects,” I tell him.”They may train us in the arts of love, but in their minds our hearts belong firmly to Mortain.”

“I disagree with your convent,” he says. “Why give us hearts at all then?”

Slowly, as if afraid I will bolt, he reaches for my hand, which has somehow escaped from the covers. When he laces his fingers through mine, my heart does its now familiar panicked flight, bumping painfully against my ribs. My shoulder twitches as if to pull my hand back, but my heart overrules it.
                                                                                            His hand is warm, the skin firm. We sit together in silence. I do not know what is going through his head, but my own mind is unable to form a single thought. At least, not a coherent one. After a long while, he squeezes my hand, then leans down to kiss the back of it. His lips are warm and soft and I am filled with the memory of them on my mouth, my throat. Slowly, as if with great reluctance, he pulls away, and I shiver. “Perhaps,” he says. “When this is all over.”

“Perhaps, my lord.”

3. Daemon Black from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Onyx. Pssh he’s like hotness times a thousand and he can fry a laptop with a kiss! He can feed me anytime and this is a lead in to one of my favorite scenes J
Around six in the evening. I felt that now-oh-so-familiar tingle on the back of my neck right before Daemon knocked. A ball of confusing feelings unfurled inside me as I hurried to the door.

The first thing I noticed was the large box beside him, and then the scent of roasted turkey and yams.

“Hey,” he said, holding a stack of covered plates. “Happy Thanksgiving.”

I blinked slowly. “Happy Thanksgiving.”

“You going to invite me in?” He held up the plates, wiggling them. “I come bearing gifts in the form of food.”

I stepped aside.

Still grinning, he came in and waved his free hand. The box lifted off the porch and trailed behind him like a dog. It landed just inside the foyer. As I shut the door, I caught sight of Ash and Andrew climbing into their car. Neither of them looked over.

A lump formed in my throat as I turned to Daemon.

“I brought a little of everything,” He headed toward the kitchen. “There’s turkey, yams, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green-bean casserole, some kind of apple crisp thing and pumpkin—Kitten? Are you coming?”
4. Kaidan Rowe from Wendy Higgins’s Sweet Evil. Sex on a stick that’s what this dude is! Remember I said I made my friends DEAR this book? Yeah I took a picture of page 11 in the ARC that is when I fell for him to convince them if they needed it! A gorgeous drummer with a British accent mmmmmmmm…….And then he does this!
He blinked at me, seeming surprised by my easy forgiveness. I gave him a small smile and took a sip of my orange juice. He leaned back in his chair and observed me.

“How’s your orange juice, Ann? Does it have a touch of lime?”

The glass paused at my lips as I processed his innuendo, and I took a second to make sure my embarrassment stayed hidden inside. I let the drink swish over my tongue a moment before swallowing and answering.

“Actually it’s a little sour,” I said, and he laughed.

“That’s a shame.” He picked up a green pear from his plate and bit into it, licking the juice that dripped down his thumb. My cheeks warmed as I set down my glass.

“Okay, now you’re just being crude,” I said.

He grinned with lazy satisfaction.

5. Adrian Ivashkov from Richelle Mead’s Golden Lily. Yep I’ve been in love with this dude since Frostbite what more can I say?!?!? And he’s so *sighs*
“Sage,” he said “What are you wearing?”

I sighed and stared down at the dress. “I know. It’s red. Don’t start. I’m tired of hearing about it.”

“Funny,” he said. “I don’t think I could ever get tired of looking at it.”

6. Zachary Moore from Jeri Smith-Ready’s Shine. Oh my heart from Scotland you can take me to prom wearing a kilt anytime! And Zach is definitely one of the more romantic characters in this list!
 “Aye.” He turned his head to face me, but stayed on his back. “You look beautiful.”

I glanced at my live shot in the corner. My features were as dim as his. “You can barely see me in the dark.”

“I don’t need to see you to know that you’re beautiful.”

7. Warner from Tahereh Mafi’s Shatter Me. I know many of you hate him but I just can’t. I see the goodness in him. I saw it before reading Destroy Me and Unravel Me and I see it even more now! I know most of you haven’t read it yet but here’s just a small quote from Unravel Me….
He touches the tips of his fingers to his lips. Tilts his head back, just a little. Smiles a strange unhappy smile. Says, “You must know how sorry I am. That I”---he swallows---“That I kissed you like that. I confess I had no idea you would shoot me for it.”

8. Roar from Veronica Rossi’s Under the Never Sky. Perry is the main dude I know but I can help that I fell for Roar. He’s gorgeous, funny, smart, sensitive…… ah I could go on forever. Here if you haven’t met him let Aria tell you about Roar.
 “Up close, she saw a gleam in Roar’s gaze. He had a prince’s looks but a pirate’s eyes. Roar smiled, an appealing, clever flash. Aria laughed. Definitely more pirate. Roar laughed at her laugh, and she decided on the spot she liked him.”

And then there’s this…

 ‘Yes, but this feels intimate. Don’t you think it does? I don’t mean that I think we’re being too intimate. I guess I do. Roar, sometimes it’s really hard to get used to this.’

Roar flashed a grin. “Aria, this isn't intimate. If I were being intimate with you, trust me, you’d know.”

She rolled her eyes. ‘Next time you say something like that, you should toss a red rose and then leave with a swish of your cape.’

He gazed off like he was imagining it. “I could do that.”

9. Will and Elliot from Bethany Griffin’s Masque of The Red Death. Yeah both of these are hot boys in completely different ways! One is dark, handsome, and mysterious; the other is blonde, a rich bad boy, and completely adorably infuriating. And since I can’t pick here’s a quote from each.


Will:
When he pulls me close, there is no flirtation, no suggestion of anything except comfort. My heart beats faster anyway.

“I’m sorry that you lost him. And that you’ve chosen to punish yourself because of it.”

It was my fault. But there is no point in arguing. We are almost to the end of the alley, and I know he must leave me in just a few steps.

“Be careful,” he says. “If you aren’t, I won’t get a chance to convince you that you are wrong.”

 Elliot:
“We aren’t madly in love?”

“You scorn me. But I am infatuated with you.”

“You’re a better liar than I thought,” I say lightly.

“I’m a fabulous liar.” He swings down from the carriage and walks around to lift me down. He pulls me close and says quietly, “And you need to be too.”

10. Ben Matthews from Elizabeth Norris’s Unraveling. I love this dude soooo much it’s not even funny! He’s romantic, loves motorcycles, isn’t afraid to curse,  is gorgeous, and just happens to be from an alternate universe lol.


I smile, and that’s all it takes. He leans forward and our lips touch, and it’s like his lips were made to fit around mine.

His arms tighten around me, and I reach up to the back of his neck and pull him into me. Our lips part, our tongues touch, and I taste him until a sigh escapes with my breath.

Ben pulls back just a fraction of an inch so our foreheads are touching and his lips smile against mine.

“This was perfect,” I whisper.

He closes his eyes, and his voice is quiet, like the words are simply being exhaled. “It was better than perfect.”

 Honorable Mentions


Jack from Kresley Cole’s Poison Princess. I also fell, hard, for Jack, with his Cajun accent and broken French which thankfully I understood without translation since I speak passable French lol. Here’s a swoon-worthy scene.

In answer, he pulled his shirt over his head, revealing rigid planes of muscles. Yes, I’d caught glimpses of him shirtless before—but this was the first time I’d utterly lost my breath looking at him.

His face and his broad chest were still tanned, his eyes seeming to glow in the moonlight. That onyx rosary around his neck glinted with his movements.

He was stripping before my eyes, yet I couldn’t look away. I bit my bottom lip.

Any minute I would turn my back. Any minute…

As he began to unbuckle his belt, his stomach muscles rippled.

I grew weak in the knees. Any minute—

When he reached his zipper, he cocked his head and met my gaze.

 Aiden St. Delphi from Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Deity. Hotness, hotness, hotness! And has a heart of gold too!
He cupped the nape of my neck. I heard his sharp intake of breath. Then he let go of my wrists and grasped my hips. Before I could blink, I was on my back, and Aiden hovered over me. Using one arm to support himself, he lowered his head and brushed his lips over my swollen cheek.

“How do we always end up like this?” he asked, voice rough as his gaze traveled away from my face and down my body.

“I didn’t do this.” Slowly, I lifted my hands and placed them against his chest. His heart jumped under my palm.

“No this was all me.” The lower half of his body shifted down. Our legs were flush. His eyes searched mine, “It gets harder every time.”

  
Gavin from JA Souders Renegade Hot boy with a sense of humor even in the most dire of situations! I just have two words for you SHOWER SCENE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I find a pair of black leather sandal wedges that I can run in if I need to, then I gather up Gavin’s clothes and step into the bathroom to set them on the counter for him.

In a classic case of worst possible timing, he steps out of the shower just as I look up from the clothes. My jaw drops and I have to force myself to shut it. I can’t help it—my eyes travel the whole lovely way from his muscled shoulders to his stomach and back up again. Water slides gloriously over every muscle, causing them to glisten in the lights.

I’m barely aware that I’m staring until he says, “Enjoying the view?”

Heat rushes into me and I blush from the tips of my toes to the roots of my hair. I quickly avert my gaze to the wall behind him. “I’m so sorry. I just meant to drop off your clothes for you. I, uh, I’ll see you…out there…when you’re finished.”

I rush out the door on shaky legs. The minute I hit the living room, I lower myself onto the couch and stare off into space.

Oh, Mother. My mind keeps replaying what I just saw. Wavy, golden hair. Thick muscular chest, hard toned abs. Bronzed skin. And…I shake my head. That is not something I should be thinking about.

I fan a hand in front of my face. It feels hot, like someone has raised the temperature a good twenty degrees.

Luke from Leah Clifford’s A Touch Morbid. Another that could make my boyfriend list or villain list but then he does something sweet and I have to put him here. And he’s gorgeous as all hell! And yep then there’s this….
He trailed his fingers down her face and then further. They lingered against the swell of her breast, the lace of her bustier. “Because you tempt me. You demand I fight for your affections instead of taking what I please.” He dropped his hand. “You tell me no. You say stop. And I listen.” He said the last words like a curse, anger bleeding through, each word rougher than the last.

Luke tilted his head, his neck tense, cracking with a snap. He rolled his shoulders.

“You’re a silly little dead girl.” He glared at her, his tone harsh. “You should mean nothing to me.” He grabbed her chin, forced her to meet his eyes. “And yet I covet you more than anything else on this Earth.”

Best Book Covers of 2012

1. Incarnate Jodi Meadows. I loved the butterfly and I thought this was absolutely breathtaking!

2. Embers & Echoes by Karsten Knight. I loved the simplicity of the cover and it's really beautiful!

3. Defiance by CJ Redwine. Not a girl in a dress! I loved the forest above and the castle illusion below and the redhead heroine stands out so well!


4. Everneath by Brodi Ashton. K I said there were a few and this is one of my favorites! I love the smoke at the bottom!

5. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi.Loved this book and I loved this cover! The lightening and the blues were just so pretty!

6. Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey. I thought this was a smart cover with a girl in a dress. I love how she's levitating above the water.

7. Masque of The Red Death by Bethany Griffin. The cover artist who did this one got it all right! I loved the MC didn't have a face it was blocked by the parasol. And I'm a huge fan of reds and greys!

8. The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. I just saw the cover remake for this series and I'm pretty mad. I loved this original and thought it fit the series so well. I loved that the MC was crying a tear of blood since she is a vampire.

9. Gravity by Melissa West. This cover is brill and I'm not just saying that because I work at Entangled. It was another simplistic one but it just said soooo much!

10. Luminosity by Stephanie Thomas. If you've read the book; which I hope you all will. This cover is a perfect fit! I love the darker covers and this definitely fits Stephanie's dark story!
