Glitches

Author: Marissa Meyer
Series: The Lunar Chronicles #0.5
Rating: 2.5 / 5 stars
Verdict: Borrow

As a self proclaimed fanatic of Meyer's The Lunar Chronicles, I was thrilled when I found out her short stories/novellas ties to the series were available to read for free on Wattpad.  I started with Glitches, as I have been planning to reread the series, and thus wanted to reread it in order including the online stories.

Glitches, unfortunately, just doesn't have the same magical feeling as the books in the series.  While it features all our favorite original characters from Cinder, this addition to the series does little to add to the saga.  It is a fragment of different scenes that revolve around Cinder's arrival to her new family after her surgery where she came a cyborg.  While this story adds a few details and some weak dialogue, it doesn't really contribute much to scenes we already know have happened through the narration in the other novels.

For the most avid of fans, Glitches might be worth the read.  And it certainly doesn't take up much of your time.  It's even useful if you need a Lunar Chronicle fix before the next release in the series.  But overall, Glitches doesn't feel worthy of the Lunar Chronicle series, falling flat without a plot or much of a purpose, yielding very few new details of things we already knew happened.
