Waiting on Wednesday: Cress

Hi there!

Every week I participate in Waiting on Wednesday (hosted by Breaking the Spine). Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme where we get the chance to shine the spotlight on upcoming releases that I’m anticipating.

Today I’m incredibly excited about a book that won’t be released until February 2014!

Yes I know! It is like cruel and unusual punishment that we have to wait that long for Cress by Marissa Meyer!

Cress by Marissa MeyerRapunzel’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.

The first two books in this series, Cinder and Scarlet, are just fantastic. If you haven’t read these books yet, you definitely should. We all know that I’m a massive fairy tale retelling fan and what better way to retell fairy tales than in a sci-fi setting?! Plus there is so much Firefly connections all over this series it makes me want to dance with delight! Seriously. Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite?! How freaking cool does that sound?!

Cress isn’t scheduled to release until February 4, so I have a while to wait! Oh the agony!

  1. I think I may actually refrain from reading the first two books in this series until this one is released. Waiting is painful when you really want a book to be released, so I can save myself some pain if I hold off reading. Which kind of sounds weird, because I’ll be waiting anyway, but I have so many books to read over the Summer, I won’t have a problem :D
