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.

    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.

Bibliocrack Review | The Love Hypothesis by Ali Hazelwood

 Hi. Hey. Hello there. It's been a . . . well, you know what it's been. We're all still living this together. So I will simply skip to the fact that I couldn't not review this book here. Because reading it was something special. I knew nothing about Ali Hazelwood 's debut novel except that it involved women in STEM and that the cover made me smile. I decided to set it aside for myself as a reward. Work has been . . . punishing . . . for the last year, and I have been so exhausted every hour of every day. And so I determined to buy The Love Hypothesis  on release day knowing nothing about it. But when I went to the bookstore to get my copy, none were available. In fact, none were available anywhere for love nor money, in store or online. At first I was moderately disappointed. Then I told myself maybe it's not that great after all and I didn't necessarily need to feel this preemptive sense of loss. But it kept gnawing at me. The loss. And so I paused work an

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin
