Review: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Hello everybody!
I'm going to make this a really short review since I am currently at camp. Clever little me decided to leave everything to last minute and here I am trying to write four posts. (It's 11:40 PM right now.... I have two more posts to write.... oh boy). This is going to be super quick, so I'm sorry if it seems really rushed and not as detailed as they usually are.

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.

What I liked the most: The plot
This is the third book of the series, so it's going to be really hard not to spoil the first two books. I think this is the best book out of the three that are out. It's fast paced and really exciting. The plot twits make me want to scream and tear my hair out.. OMG! I have to wait forever for the next book! Whyy????

What I liked the least: The relationships
So the pairings so far are Cinder/Kai, Scarlet/Wolf, and Captain Throne/Cress. I can't say I ship any of them... I'm still meh about Cinder and Kai because they've seriously met a few times and I'm expected to love their relationship? I don't think so. Honestly, nothing they've done together/for each other makes me fawn over them. Scarlet and Wolf could but cute... but like ????? what?????
Cress and Cap are kinda cute... I'll go into their relationship in Characters...

The Characters:
Cress is one of the new characters in the book. She's been stuck n a satellite for years and it's so fun to see her interact with other people. She kind of fangirled/fantasized about Captain Throne before she met him, which is super cute. Sadly, he didn't really need her expectations. He's still kind of ditzy. They're cute together, but sometimes Cress is like, "oh my god..." towards Cap.  

This is my favorite out of the series so far. I love how all their stories intertwine together and the plot twists! OMG plot twists.... I cannot wait to read the next book... but I'll probably have to reread the entire series again to refresh my memory. 

Rate: 4 / 5

Recommend? Yes

Sorry this review is so short, but I hope it's sufficient. Maybe I'll do a makeup review soon... who knows?

Thanks so much for reading. I'll see you soon!
