 This week's Waiting On Wednesday is one that is very special to me!  I've been with this series since the very first book was released, and I am very enthusiastic about the third book's release! The author is SPECTACULAR! She's an amazing writer, she's a nice person and very fun to talk to, and she is the one who inspired me to start writing my own novel! 

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you CRESS by Marissa Meyer!

 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 first heard about Cinder on Goodreads! It was in the section of books that had been released that particular week, and it intrigued me. The idea of a retelling of Cinderella with cyborgs and aliens and awesome scifi sounded too good to be true! So I bought the book, read it, and INSTANTLY fell in love with her and her books! I've been a fan of hers ever since!

I highly recommend her books for ANYONE! Even my picky-reader brother loved Cinder and cannot wait to read the other books in the series. She's even writing another retelling, separate from THE LUNAR CHRONICLES, called HEARTLESS! It's an Alice In Wonderland retelling, focussing on the untold stor of the Queen of Hearts! 

I hope that I will be able to meet her when she visits Texas on Valentine's Day! It would be like a dream come true! 
You can look at her tour schedule HERE if you want to see her!



  1. Cress sounds awesome!! Even thought I found Cinder to be predictable- I enjoy the new alien/cyborg/interesting technology twists within this series.

    My Wow-->

    1. Doesn't it?!! There was a tad bit of predictability in Cinder, yes, but I didn't find Scarlet predictable at all! Plus, the story and the characters were so amazing, that I didn't mind the predictability. ;)

  2. I'm really excited for this one too! The Lunar Chronicles is a really good and creative series. Cinder is actually on the upcoming book order at my school library (I'm so excited for that because I'll be able to recommend that one for those who ask for what to check out. ☺),

    Here's my WoW -->

  3. Ahh I'm one of those crazy ones that I hasn't read this series yet! I will eventually, promise!
