Cress Cover

Today, USA Today revealed the cover of Marissa Meyer's third novel Cress. The third installment in the Lunar Chronicles series, this one follows the mysterious girl we met near the end of Cinder and is (as expected) a retelling of Rapunzel. I have become a bigger fan of Meyer's scifi retellings with each entry. Given my unreserved love for Scarlet, I am fairly champing at the bit to get my hands on Cress. A computer hacker trapped in an orbiting satellite? Brilliant. Coverwise, I really do love the whole theme Feiwel & Friends has going on with this series. While Cinder's cover remains my favorite (nothing beats a cyborg leg in a red slipper), I get a little thrill from each one. Which cover is your favorite?

  1. Admittedly biased, I love the Scarlet cover something fierce. This one is eye-catching, absolutely. But seeing it now? When the book's release is still so far off? Tormenting.

    1. Me, too! SCARLET is my favorite book in the series, but that slipper gets me every time as far as covers go.

  3. Cinder is my favorite too because of the shoe but I love the hair on Cress (after adoring Tangled's twisted retelling) and am super excited for this new installment.

    1. Agreed. The hair is great. And I love the incorporation of the red in each one.

  5. Oh wow, I LOVE this!!! Could be my favourite of the three (I love Rapunzel, no idea why really, just do!), though I love Cinder too. I still haven't read Scarlet yet - have it, just haven't got around to it yet.

    (um, any chance you could remove Captcha from your comment function? It drives me insane!)

    1. You haven't?!! Shannon. Get thee to SCARLET. It's my favorite!

      Ugh. I'm so sorry about the Captcha. I get spam like crazy and so felt forced to have it on. Any suggestions for a workaround?

    2. That's a bummer. I don't really know what's available on Blogger but one option is to not allow anonymous comments - others have said that's the only way that works, until Blogger gets its act together. But I can understand that it's really handy for people who don't have an online presence but still want to leave comments and interact, so I guess I'll just deal! ;)

  6. It's a tough call between Scarlet's cover and this one, but I think I like this one a teensy bit more.

Review | Hunted by Meagan Spooner

I'm just going to start off by saying I cannot stop thinking about this book. I finished it weeks ago, but this lovely Beauty and the Beast adaptation will not leave my mind. This is the first book I've really read by Meagan Spooner. I gave These Broken Stars a bit of a go awhile back, but we sort of drifted apart halfway through. Not the case here. The gorgeous cover caught my eye and the early glowing reviews reinforced my conviction. Having finished it, I immediately ran out and purchased copies for a number of the relevant readers in my life. And despite having pushed on and read several books since, Huntedis the one I find my mind and heart returning to over and over again.

Yeva holds a lot of things in. She loves her family—her father, her sisters—and so she sits obediently in the baronessa's chambers. She pretends to make small talk and embroider bits of cloth with the other ladies. She smiles politely at the young man who is said to be courting her (and doesn'…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
