Wishlist Wednesday #8

Hosted by Pen to Paper

Title: Scarlet

Author: Marissa Meyer

Publication date: February 5th, 2013

Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

ISBN: 0312642962

Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.


Doesn't anyone else jump up and down when they see this?

Not only is it the sequel of one of my favorite books of 2012, but I also have heard repeatedly that it's even better! The lucky bloggers who got an ARC of it (you can spread the love over here, if you want, guys. Contact info is at the top and I have a sister in this community too;) have said over Twitter that it's amazing and surprisingly, possibly better than Cinder. I was shocked at first that any sequel could be better than Cinder, but I won't question it. I just want it.

What are YOU wishing for this week?

  1. I am so excited for this book! I have yet to read a negative review. I don't know how anything can possible be better than Cinder, but apparently it is, and that makes me *so* excited.

  7. I haven't read Cinder (my library doesn't have it yet) but Scarlet looks really cool! I adore fairy tale retellings & I like how the author's also going to write about Rapunzel & Snow White! :)

    1. I'd honestly be afraid for my life and everyone else's if suddenly a limited supply of Scarlet fell down from the sky. Blood battle. And I'd sure as heck win. ;) Thanks!
