I absolutely, positively love Scarlet from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.
Scarlet is witty, funny, brave, and strong. She doesn’t back down from a challenge and we first meet her she’s determined to do whatever it takes to find her missing grandmother.
Scarlet lives in a nice, quiet town in France, where she and grandmother run a farm. Scarlet continues to keep the place running when her grandmother goes missing and after she finds herself caught up in a world of crazy when her long lost father returns all Scarlet wants to do is get back to her life on the farm.
She can sometimes be blunt and jump into things without thinking but she is also very caring and kind. She doesn’t sugarcoat things, which makes her friendship with Princess Winter very funny to read. Some people even ship them but I don’t because…
Her relationship with Wolf is adorable. She’s his alpha and they work so well together. They’re my OTP for sure and I still don’t appreciate the emotional roller coaster Meyer put them and me on. Still, they’re adorable and both of them kick butt, which I love. They’re equals and partners and would literally do anything for each other.
Next week, I’ll continue The Lunar Chronicles love fest to talk about my girl Cress. Make sure to check back next week and comment below who your favorite character from the series is.
“Alpha female,” [Wolf] murmured. “I sort of like that.”
Beaming, Scarlet gave a mild shrug. “It could grow on me.”
