Book Series Of The Week: “The Lunar Chronicles” by Marissa Meyer


Once again I’m recommending a series instead of one book but these novels were so good. Let me introduce “The Lunar Chronicles” by Marissa Meyer.Lunar Chronicles, Books, Marissa Meyer,

“The Lunar Chronicles” are made up of 5 books: “Cinder”, “Scarlett”, “Cress”,  “Stars Above” and “Winter”. I actually stumbled across book 2 – “Scarlett” – when looking through the library catalogue for something new to read. Since I Love YA and fantasy/sci-fi, these books immediately caught my attention. But once I looked a little more deeply into the descriptions for all the books, I realized they were a retelling of old fairytales but with cyborgs, spaceships, evil queens, handsome princes, androids and more. Plus, there had to be princesses and romance!

Ms. Meyer does a wonderful retelling of “Cinderella”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Snow White”, and “Rapunzel” but in a futurist, science fiction way. These might not be your kind of books but I know some people that don’t usually enjoy fantasy fiction but liked the retelling of the fairytales they had heard all their lives.

I found that as soon as I finished one book I would immediately move to the next one. I read them order once I found out they were a series and I encourage you to do the same if you can. As I said earlier, these might not be the type of books you would normally read but you might want to give them a try. You will definitely see your favorite fairytale in a different light!
