Waiting on Wednesday: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine!

Cress by Marissa Meyer
Publish Date: February 4, 2014
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends

To my surprise, Marissa managed to outdo Cinder with its follow-up Scarlet. I can't wait to see what she does with the third book in the series.

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.


  1. I just finished reading Cinder and can not wait to get my hands on scarlet of this! they just look so good! And I heard that Scarlet was better than Cinder.
    Great choice!


  2. I LOVE Cinder and Scarlet. So I'm with you on this one...Cress is at the tippy-TOP of my 2014 wishlist!

  3. I need to read Cinder. Each book sounds more and more interesting!

  4. I hear that Scarlet was better than Cinder a lot! I really need to read Scarlet :) I wish the cover for Cress would come out so I could stare at it!

  5. I always thought this version of fairytale retellings sounds too ridiculous in a way that it's hard to wrap yur head around. However, I heard it had many fans, and since this is the last book, I might pick the trilogy up at some point despite my initial hesitation.
    Thanks for sharing! My WoW

  6. Nice! Been seeing this a lot! Sadly, I just couldn't get into the first in this series so I had to pass on the rest. Hope you enjoy this one though!!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  7. I love this series :) I can't wait for this one!

    My WW!

  8. I still haven't read Cinder (*hangs head in shame*), even though hubby got it for me at Christmas. I haven't read anything but amazing things about the series, so I definitely have to start it :)

    Reading with ABC

  9. I actually haven't read Scarlet yet, but I just LOVED Cinder. It's always amazing when an author out-does herself with a sequel...I can't wait for this! Great pick!

  10. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS ONE!! Ahhhh! 2014 has SO many great books coming out -- maybe I can take a sabbatical and spend the year reading. Think my boss would go for that? No? Darn.

  11. I haven't read this series yet (although it's been on my TBR shelf for a while now) but this sounds awesome!

    Here's my #WoW!

  12. I loved Cinder but haven't read Scarlett yet. Looking forward to it and this one!

    My WOW

  13. YES!!!!! I'm both excited and nervous about this one, as I was with Scarlet. I always get anxious when I know a new character is getting introduced when I'm already in love with the existing characters and their stories, but Marissa blew me away with Scarlet so I have no doubt she'll do the same with Cress!

  14. Oh my gosh, I've very nervous about the high price Cress has to pay for her freedom.

    I can't wait to get my hands on this one!

  15. I haven't read the first two books in the series and I'm not really sure if the books are for me but I hope you enjoy reading it.
    Come check out my WOW post.

  16. YES so excited for this book! Or anything Marissa Meyer writes haha. I hope these books just get better and better.

  17. I liked CINDER, loved SCARLET, and am dying to read CRESS! I just saw the cover a few hours ago, and it's fantastic :)

    Great WOW!

  18. I can't wait for this book either! The cover is pretty awesome too :)

  19. I loved Scarlet so much more than Cinder so I'm really excited to see what Marissa has in stored for us in Cress. I also can't wait for the cover reveal. Great choice!

  20. Oh I know, I can't wait for this one!

  21. I'm WAY excited for this one as well! I love the sci fi twist on these. The cover for this was released! Have you seen it? It is fun!

  22. Aah, I STILL need to read Scarlet!! But I'm excited that she managed to outdo Cinder, so I'm also excited for Cress!

  23. Scarlet blew me away so completely that I definitely have to find out what comes next!


  24. Fantastic issues altogether, you just won a logo new reader. What might you suggest about your put up that you made a few days ago? Any sure?
