Rapid Fire Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3)Cress by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is hands down my favorite of this series so far. Lots of Thorne, who to me is sooo Han Solo material (my first love) A total anti-hero, who develops so beautifully. Now I know a lot of girls will get frustrated with Cress, because she is such a dreamer. But OMG I loved her, though now that I am in my 40's I did want to smack her upside the head a little for being such a wuss. But I so identified with her, because I was such a Cress at her age. The things she says and does reminds me oh so painfully of my teenage years. I was Cress! Ok, a so much more boring and unattractive version, but oh so painfully similar. For those who know me at that age, I have two words for you. MIKE TINKER. LOL! This installment is perfectly paced, filled with plenty of action, and humour and such incredible world building. Some interesting mortal and ethical questions as well. I was truly disappointed at the end of this one, because I wanted more and I knew it was going to be a couple of days till I could read the next story. Yes I know it must have been hard for you who had to wait a longer time than I did for the next story. Also, I think the saddest thing in my life right now is that Iko, isn't real. My god I love that little firebrand. She really gets the best quotes. Pure delight, I cannot wait for more -- oh wait I have already finished the rest of the series and it is fabulous - holy crap how far am I behind in these reviews

Favorite Quotes

“I’m not convinced that you fully grasp the situation here, Cress. We will be eaten. Alive. By vultures. Can you visualize that for a second?”
“Y-yes. Vultures. I understand.”
“Good. Because I need you. And those are not words that I throw around every day. Now, are you going to be all right?”
