Waiting on Wednesday (51)

Waiting on Wednesday
is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
 that showcases upcoming releases 
that people are very much anticipating.

While I may not have loved (though I did like, more so than not) the first two books in this series, I still want to read the second to last book (and the last, for that matter). Why? Well, the cover is stunning. And I do like the books, and I want more from the characters. Also, I love fairy tales, and it's a retelling. Can you guess what book I'm talking about? No? Then allow me to let down my hair...

Title: Cress

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.

Are you waiting on a book from a series this week?


  1. I am so excited for this one!! I loooooved Cinder, and really liked Scarlet; I'm hoping this one will be up in Cinder-level territory for me again, lol. February is FOREVER away, though. *pulls hair out*

  2. Same WOW as we had basically the same TTT :) Great minds!

  5. All covers of this series are amazing. I haven't gotten round to start it yet. Shame on me!!

    Here’s my WoW!

  6. Sounds like a great third book! I haven't started Cinder yet, but fairytales meet sci-fi indication I will LOVE it (hopefully a little more than you did?). Yey! Super excited. I read the synopsis, I know, spoilers! But looking at my reading pile I know I'll have forgotten any specifics by the time I get to start these books. :-(

  7. I love Cinder and yet to read Scarlet and I have no idea why but I'm terribly excited for this one too! Great pick!! Here's my WoW :)

  8. Yay! I'm excited to see what part Rapunzel plays in Cinder's story! Only a few more months until this comes out, too ^.^

  9. I read Cinder and enjoyed it, but I haven't read Scarlet yet. I'll have to add this one to my tbr. Thanks for sharing.
    My WoW

  10. I still have to read Cinder and Scarlet but I'm loving the cover for Cress! Great pick :)
    Come see my WoW post :)

  11. I still need to read Scarlet! I actually loved Cinder more than I had anticipated... so I'm hoping that when I get to Scarlet I'll enjoy it too. And I've loved all their covers. They feel unique, and that's nice considering how... ubiquitous the female in flowy dresses thing is.

    Great pick!

  12. I can't believe I haven't read this series yet – I think I may be the only one on the planet who hasn't. I hope to be caught up by the time the final one comes out! :-)

  13. I enjoy reading this author as well!! Great choice!! I'm a new GFC follower! :D

  14. I've heard mixed reactions on The Lunar Chronicles as well, that's why I haven't gotten into them yet. But if you like them enough to keep going I should give them a try!
