The wonderful Marissa Meyer (The Lunar Chronicles) came to my library for her Heartless tour. And I met her! She’s adorable. My favorite thing about the night was how much fun it looked like SHE was having. She told about her book and about a specific part where her characters are put on show and have to perform. So she called up 8 girls from he audience and they had to “perform” the cutest things. For example one card read that the girl was in charge of the finishing school for girls and would demonstrate the proper way to stand with a book on her head while reciting classic literature (humpty dumpty). Another was a world-renowned poet and had to create something (on the spot) about a hat. All through it, Marissa looked like she was just one of the teenagers. It made the night so fun.
If you don’t know Marissa Meyer’s books, you are missing out! Seriously. They are one of the best series because I can recommend them to ANYONE. Sci-Fi retellings of fairy tales? Check. Swoon-worthy boys? Check. Clean content? Check, check.
Go read them now! You won’t regret it. (**Disclaimer: Cinder is not my favorite of the series. At least get through Scarlett before you decide you’re finished)
Have you read her books? Which is your favorite?
