Yup! We managed to pull off a huge family surprise and surprised my kids with a trip to Disney World! 24 Hours after we got there, we surprised them with my parents and brother showing up… then 24 hours later my sister and her family (which happen to be my kids’ BFFs) showed up! It was magical and SOOOOO much fun!

But I had to sneak on the blog to say that I’m still tearing through the Lunar Chronicles. I just got to Cress (book 3)… it’s so great guys!

And these covers… GORGEOUS! Check out the cover for book 2, Scarlet:

Each book centers around a different main protagonist (which correlates to a fairy tale if you can’t pick up from the covers) and they are all so uniquely amazing and I love them all!

I can’t wait for Winter, which I think may have the most beautiful cover of them all…

Okay, back to the family and Disney, but seriously guys! These books! ahh!

Book Recommendation: Cinder (Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer

11235712

Hardcover, 452 pages
Published February 5th 2013 by Feiwel and Friends
Summary:
Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.
Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.
My Thoughts:
This is another series that is highly loved that I’m late in the game to read. It actually just completed (book 4 just came out) and so I’m going to get to binge read the ENTIRE series (yay!). This is so incredibly unique and lovely and you’re going to adore Cinder. This is the most unique fairy re-telling I’ve read… I think ever? I love how Cinder is strong and not the normal weak/wish-washy Cinderella characters. She’s amazing and I can’t wait to finish the series!
