Waiting on Wednesday: Cress by Marissa Meyer

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****

My pick this week is:

Cress (Lunar Chronicles, #3)
Cress by Marissa Meyer
Expected release date: February 4th, 2014
 from Feiwel and Friends

Rapunzel's tower is a satellite. She can't let down her hair - or her guard.

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.

I don't think I know anyone who isn't excited for this book. This series is huge right now and with good reason. It just keeps getting better. Scarlet didn't really end with a cliffhanger but it definitely didn't end on a good note. Plus Rapunzel is my favorite fairytale character. Though I doubt this will be anything like the Disney movie.

  1. Awesome choice! I've read and loved Cinder though I haven't read Scarlet yet. I love fairytales. :) Thanks for sharing!
