2014 book 284

Marissa Meyer's Scarlet
The second book in Meyer's Lunar Chronicles brings Little Red Riding Hood into the mix, trying to track down her kidnapped grandmother with the help of a fighter named Wolf, as her path brings her closer to Cinder. I guess I should note here, since I didn't when I reviewed the first one, that there's a lot of political stuff going on, as the queen of the moon people (they have weird psychic powers) REALLY wants to be empress of whatever China-related land mass exists in this future world (and presumably then take over Earth). Anyway, this one was fun, if a bit too romance-heavy for my personal taste. B/B+.
