Do you like Young Adult with strong female characters? Amanda recommends that you check out Scarlet, the 2nd book from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer - "It’s an interesting twist on classic fairy tales, set in a futuristic world with cyborgs and androids. It’s full of strong female characters that don’t wait around to be rescued. I love trying to figure out how the author is going to alter the traditional Red Riding Hood fairy tale."


Deftly twining series plot threads with those introduced in Cress, Marissa Meyer has managed to create another thrilling blend of science fantasy, romance, and fairy tale adventure.

The Most Interesting Fairy-Tale Adaptation of the Year

This is the year of the fairy-tale adaptation, from dueling Snow White movies to Grimm and Once Upon a Time. But quite possibly the most memorable take on fairy-tale archetypes isn't on any screen yet — it's Cinder, the cyborg Cinderella story by new author Marissa Meyer.

Not the fairytale story of Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf you grew up with. This is an awesome retelling set in a futuristic France in which a young girl sets out to rescue her kidnapped grandmother with the help of a reclusive street fighter known only as Wolf. Review and content notes.
