Waiting On Wednesday: Cress

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Cress (Lunar Chronicles, #3)

Title: Cress (The Lunar Chronicles #3)
Author: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 4, 2014
Summary (from Goodreads):

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'm Looking Forward To It: I know I'm late to the Lunar Chronicles hype, but better late than never! I just devoured Cinder and Scarlet this month in prep for the author's visit on the 30th, and now I'm DYING to get my hands on Cress! Especially since we're finally adding the Rapunzel character, Cress, into the main POVs - I've been waiting impatiently for her sheltered hacker voice since late Book 1 when she was introduced. And of course there will be more Scarlet and Wolf... Where is an ARC when I need one? T-T

So what book are you waiting on?


  1. Yes yes yes! I need this book like a human needs air!

  2. This is a popular pick today :) I'm definitely eager to read it as well.
