Waiting on Wednesday 7
Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where bloggers pick a book that hasn't been published yet that they are excited to read.
This week, I'm looking forward to the third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cress.
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: Science Fiction, YA
Publishing date: February 4, 2014
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.
Why I want to read it:
So I'm a little behind, and I haven't read Scarlet yet, but I absolutely loved Cinder. I'm really excited to read more about the Lunar world and see even more inventive twists on classic fairy-tales. I mean, it doesn't get much better than a cyborg Cinderella battling an evil alien queen from the moon, right?
