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. [Goodreads]


I’ve become kind of obsessed with Marissa Meyer’s series The Lunar Chronicles lately, and since I’m trying to add more to my blog then just reviews, I thought making book playlists would be fun, since I’m really into music and making playlists.

1 Empty Gold–Halsey 

. . .’Cause when our demons come, 

Dancing in the shadows, to a game that can’t be won. 

Feel like we’ve been falling down, like these autumn leaves. . .

2 Shot at the Night–The Killers

. . .Once in a lifetime, the breaking of the roof,

To find that our home, has long been out grown

Draw me a lifeline, ’cause honey I’ve got nothing to lose. . .

3 Lone Ranger–Rachel Platten

. . .Much less brave than I admit, much more scared then they all think

But I’m protecting the organ in my chest

‘Cause the blood, sweat and tears they can make quite a mess. . .

5 Salvation–Gabrielle Aplin


. . .You are the snow storm, I’m purified

The darkest fairy tale

In the dead of night. . .


. . .We hold onto an idea and we’ll fight what we can’t see

We just hold onto an idea and we’ll keep going till we can heal

We’ll keep going till we can’t hear. . .

7 Fire–Gavin DeGraw

. . .Let’s start a riot tonight, a pack of lions tonight

In this world, he who stops, won’t get anything he wants. . .

8 Battleships–Daughtry

. . .And I don’t wanna fight this war, 

Bullets coming off our lips,

But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships. . .

9 Ain’t No Way We’re Goin’ Home–R5

. . .Light years away, so outta space, without a trace. . .

10 Over the Creek–George Ezra

. . .I’m the mess that has been left to save you,

Your situation must be dire, 

Your situation must be over the creek. . .

That’s it! This was really fun to make, so hopefully I’ll be doing more of these in the future!

Have you read Scarlet? What songs do you associate with the book?
