Waiting on Wednesday #32: Cress

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick for this week's WoW is...

Cress by Marissa Meyer

Title: Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3)
Author: Marissa Meyer
Release date: February 4th 2014
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

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.

The cover of Cress was revealed a few days ago, and I love it! Don't you love it? I can't wait for this book. But 6 months away??! Crazyyy. Anyway, I can't wait to find out what Cinder and Scarlet are up to, and what Cress is like. Especially since I love the story of Rapunzel, and I'm looking forward to seeing how Marissa Meyer creates her own twist to it.


  1. I seriously need to start with this series. I have Cinder and I really hope I'll start the series as soon as this one comes out. Great pick!

    Tanja @ Ja čitam, a ti?


    I loooove this series, and can not wait to read Cress. And when that gorgeous new front cover was revealed at long last, I was sooo happy and went crazy. The front cover fits with the synopsis so well, and it looks incredibly unique and eye-catching. Whoever designed it is very talented. The other covers are beautiful too. :)

    I am also really looking forward to seeing how Cinder and Scarlet are getting on. They are such amazing female leads. :)

    Amazing pick this week, Richa. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
    And it is a shame that we have to wait so long for this to be released to us, but I bet it'll be worth the long wait. :D

  3. This one is popular today. Thanks for sharing :)


  4. I haven't started the series yet but I'd love to give the books a try. Great pick and I hope you enjoy reading it.
    Come check out my WOW post.

  5. I have Cinder on my kindle, and haven't read it yet. I neeeeeed to start this series!!! Maybe i'll just wait til they're all out now. /sigh.


  6. I honestly can't wait for this book either... but I also still have to read Scarlet (I know, I'm terrible). I loved Cinder, so I've been meaning to pick up Scarlet. I suppose I have some time to get it in before this comes out in February :)

    Here's my WoW post.
