Cress. I loved it. So full of action and wonderful people (umm…characters…) that I cannot get enough of the Lunar chronicles series. I totally wish I was on board that epic, dangerous mission to overthrow Queen Levana with them just so I could hang out and chat with Wolf, Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Kai, and of course Thorne.
This book introduces some new characters, but retains all of the lovable favorites. Cinder’s powers are growing and she struggles with an internal battle; do her powers define her? Can she still be a good person if she manipulates people with her powers even if it’s not for the same reason Levana does? And can she resist the power’s sometimes darker temptations?
Scarlet’s story was pretty intriguing too, though we don’t see much of her and I’m guessing she will play a larger part in the next book…however I’m not going to say anything because I don’t want to give anything away J
And Cress. Her storyline was wonderful. I loved it and could totally relate to her (and I think a lot of book lovers can to some extent). Being isolated in a satellite she created fantasies about meeting the man of her dreams…which never quite play out the way she anticipates…
All in all it was awesome…and I canNOT wait for Winter to come out!!
P.S. I just pre-ordered a SIGNED copy of Cassandra Clare’s City of Heavenly Fire from Books of Wonder Shop!!! It was a bit spendy but I feel totally worth it (:
So Marissa Meyer’s third book in the Lunar Chronicle’s, Cress, had a big cover reveal today…and it’s stunning!! The book isn’t set to come out until Feb. 4 and I have absolutely NO IDEA how I will be able to wait that long!
Check out my 5 Star Reviews of:
Book 2- Scarlet
Also, be sure to check out the article on USA Today about the cover reveal which has a great interview with Meyer.
And speaking of cover releases… I’m still on the fence about the new Harry Potter covers. I mean they’re pretty and all…and I love the fact that the spines make a picture when put together….BUT it’s changing my childhood! And I am so in love with GrandPre’s covers. I even have a wall full of some prints of Grandpre’s Harry Potter illustrations (courtesy of a fabulous birthday present from my fiancé!) just because I love her work so much. (I’ll probably still have to buy a set with the new covers though just so my collection stays up to date 😉 Check out all of the covers here.
Let me know what you think about any of these new covers!
