Waiting on Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. On Wednesdays, we (as readers) shine the spotlight on an upcoming release or two that we can't wait to get our hands on.

My pick for this week is probably not a surprise to anyone who frequently reads my blog posts. I've fallen in love with The Lunar Chronicles, so the book I am waiting on this week is Fairest by Marissa Meyer.

Fairest is scheduled to be released on January 27, 2015, so there is still some time left for me to wait. I can't wait to learn more about Queen Levana because I can't help but think that a lot of the story is missing.

I have so many questions. How did Levana come to be so cruel? What was Cinder's mother like? How is Winter treated? And most importantly... How did people come to live on the moon? But I am really excited for the full-color art. How freaking awesome is that going to be?


Synopsis:
In this stunning bridge book between Cress and Winter in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.

Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.


So what are you waiting on this week? Let me know in the comments or leave a link to your post.

    1. I love the covers! If you get a close look at Cress, you can see that there is so much detail. There are little tiny paint strokes for her hair. It's so awesome.

  3. I... haven't read Cinder yet... *runs away in shame*
    Almost everyone tells me the books are awesome, and I'm intrigued by the futuristic fairy-tale aspect, but somehow I just haven't gotten around to it. Maybe I'll make a goal to finish the released books before this (novella?) comes out.

    1. Psh. Don't run away. I only just read Cinder last month. The books are great. I was unsure of them, but once I started Cinder, I was hooked. They are so good.

  4. I only have read Cinder. I so need to read the rest of this series. This series really is good. Fairest sounds like a different take on a character.

    1. I loved Cinder! I can't wait to see how she relates Levana to the Evil Queen. It should be good.

    1. Cress is so so so good! When you get around to reading it, let me know. I can't wait to see what you think of it.

      And thanks. I just have so many questions about Levana that I had to be excited for this one.
