Hannah @ So Obsessed With - I didn’t read this because I STILL haven’t read Cinder yet but I’m going to. I promise. Especially because you gave Scarlet a READ THIS NOW rating 🙂

Tara - This book just left me with all the feelings! I loved how Cinder’s and Scarlet’s stories intertwined and I cannot wait for Cress. Thanks again for letting me borrow 🙂

Kelly - I’ve only seen glowing reviews for this, which makes me want to re-read Cinder so I can be as prepared as possibly to enjoy it! And a brooding bad boy? My fate is sealed!

Cynthia - Dying to read this one!! I loved Cinder and can’t wait to find out what happens to her and Kai in this sequel. Also eager to meet these new characters, I’ve been hearing lots about Wolf. =D

Suz @ A Soul Unsung - Oh wow! Now, I’m really super excited and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Scarlet, if it’s all of that and so much more! *g*

I know that I instantaneously fell head over feet for Cinder and broody boys are one of the best things ever written in fiction, true facts.

Fantastic review!

Stormy - I cannot wait for this book. I thought at the beginning of 2013 that Divergent #3 was going to be my most anticipated book of the year, but at this point I realize, nope, I’m WAY more excited for Scarlet. And like you, I also always want more Kai!

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I couldn’t agree more with you about everything you just said about Scarlet. I loved how Meyer weaves these stories together. And Wolf was such an interesting character. I’m also not exactly sure how I feel about him. I mean, I love him, but also I am a but wary (and maybe even scared) of him as well. I hate waiting for Cress. And I have a long wait on my hands 🙁

Annette - I kind of only skimmed your review, because I’m about 1/2 way through Scarlet — but I’m really excited to finish it! I’m loving it too!

Rachel - I haven’t read this yet (obviously), but the intertwined stories is what has me impressed the most/the main reason why I’m looking forward to this book. I liked Cinder, but I wasn’t the hugest fan of some of the characters, so I’m looking forward to having the same story from Cinder, with some new characters as well. Great review!

Alexa Y. - I absolutely loved Scarlet (and thank you again for letting me borrow it!). I think Marissa Meyer is wonderful writer, and I love how she’s turning these classic fairytales into something new and fun and modern. I can’t wait to get my hands on a finished copy – and to read the next installment when it FINALLY releases!

Janita @ Book, Interrupted - SO EXCITED! OMGOMG I just ordered this and it’s getting sent to me soon and I am freaking out so much. I just started reading Cinder all over again to prepare for the awesomeness. Everyone who has reviewed this has loved it! So glad that you liked it too! EEK!!

Lori - So happy to hear you loved it! I have no idea where she’s going to take us with this series and I love that.

Hemborgwife - I have had this is my amazon cart to pre-order for ages and this is really prompting me to actually make the purchase!

Bookworm1858 - I always want more Kai too! Jen Ryland/YA Romantics initially freaked me out, making me think there was a love triangle (with Thorne) but I’ve now read Scarlet and am relaxed on the Cinder/Kai front even if the evil queen is trying to get in the way. So glad to read someone’s thoughts who adores Kai like I do!
