New conspiracies.
New enemies.
Same Kitty.


I started reading this book months ago, set it down for some reason, and then picked it back up, then set it back down, etc… Not sure why I kept putting it down, it wasn’t bad, it was like the previous books, I wasn’t even bored while reading it, I just did for some reason. Took me forever to finish because of that, though, and I kept forgetting who was who.

Oh well.

I love the covers in this series, honestly it’s part of why I keep reading. They’re so awesome.

Kitty once again seemed to randomly figure things out while no one else could, it’s actually what they expect her to do now. It’s nice that Koch acknowledges things that don’t make sense or are farfetched. I think that’s part of what makes this series good.

I’m getting tired of every man that meets Kitty wanting to do her, it’s annoying and one of my pet peeves in books lately. In this book even the gay dudes want to do her, they need to either say she has some kind of sex ooze that attracts men to her or just lay off of it. I really hope this stops in the next book, but I’m afraid it won’t.

I like the series, Kitty is at least fairly unique, but the things that annoy me are starting to add up. I have the next book in the series, but I think I’m going to take a break before I read it.

Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3) By: Marissa Meyer


In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who’s only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.


Cinder just can’t catch a break. Well, the people around her can’t catch a break, Cinder is doing alright by the end.

Cress was a great addition to the team, she brought a lot of needed skills, and although I knew she was going to wind up being the daughter of someone special it took me a minute to catch on to who it actually was. She also brought a very romantic point of view that wasn’t already in the series.

Scarlet and Wolf have still got a lot of issues as do Cinder and the Emperor. The world is going crazy, the Queen is still super evil, and I’m not sure if we’ll be able to resolve everything with the next book.

Speaking of next book, oh my god why did I have to catch up? Now I’m waiting and waiting for the next to come out. I’m also like number 93 on the wait list. Sad. I should probably buy them all. That’s what I should do.
