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 | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Forget You by Jennifer Echols

I am having difficulty believing it was almost a year ago that I read Going Too Far. It was a solid swallow-in-a-single-gulp read and, I have often thought of Meg's "I am full of fear" mantra and smiled. I'm happy it's received the welcome attention it has in the blogosphere and I knew her next romantic drama would meet with a host of eager readers. When I first read the synopsis for Jennifer Echols' Forget You, I admit I was completely sucked in by the amnesia angle and the whole waking up to find you have a different boyfriend from the boyfriend you thought you had bit. I mean, who's not up for that? So many great possibilities when the protagonist herself doesn't know exactly what's going on. Plus, I enjoyed Ms. Echols' writing quite a bit in Going Too Far. And nearing the end of July as we are, this book was fast starting to sound like the perfect summer read to me and I looked forward to it with a high degree of anticipation.
