Wishlist Wednesday #22

Hosted by Pen to Paper
Title: Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3)
Author: Marissa Meyer
Publication date: February 4, 2014
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

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 wishing: 

Can we just take a moment to take in that beautiful cover? I'm absolutely loving it. Now we can all join in together and hate that February is so far away. I've been seeing this mentioned on my Twitter feed and desperately want this one. It involves a Rapunzel retelling, but we will also get to see our old favorites, like Cinder and Scarlet

It doesn't hurt that I hear Thorne is the love interest, which I so guessed in my interview with Marissa Meyer earlier this year. Yes, please.

What are you wishing for this Wednesday?

  2. The covers in this series have got to be some of my favorites EVER! I have Cinder and Scarlet sitting GORGEOUSLY on my shelf, yet I haven't had the opportunity to read either one. I'm sure I will pick up this one too after it's release... hope I can read them all very soon. I've heard they're amazing! :)

  3. Thanks for sharing, I'm not sure it'll be one I get as I'm getting confused just reading the synopsis! (It doesn't take much when there are lots of names lol). I hope you enjoy it when it comes out

  8. I absolutely loved Cinder! I tried reading Scarlet, but for some reason could not finish it :( I'm going to try and read it before Cress comes out! Rapunzel is my favorite fairy tale, so I'm really looking forward to this one!

  14. CRESSSSSSSSSS. I am so excited to read this! I adored Cinder and Scarlet and early buzz says this one will be just as fantastic. I hope you love it too! You clearly have excellent taste ;)
    As for me, (aside from Cress anyway), I'm waiting on Dorothy Must Die. The twist on the classic story sounds crazy interesting!

  17. I adore all things Rapunzel, and that cover is divine. Too bad the ARC doesn't have it, but hey, that's why I purchase finished copies, right? Can't wait to get to this one! I hope we both love it!!!

    1. It really is, but I would gladly have an ARC to read and then go buy the real thing after it's published :) Me too, Jen!
