Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Release Date: February 5, 2013
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

Summary (from author's website): 
Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive. 

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own. 

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.

I absolutely loved reading Cinder earlier in the year, and the fresh spin Marissa Meyer gave to the classic fairytale Cinderella. This time around, Meyer will be taking on Red Riding Hood and introducing us to new characters like Scarlet and Wolf as they uneasily work together to find Scarlet's missing grandmother. And I cannot wait to see what kind of science fiction flair Scarlet will also offer to readers... I'm definitely counting down the days until Scarlet will be released!

  1. I was lucky enough to borrow an ARC of this and I really enjoyed it! Scarlet is such a great character! I'm sure you'll love it Liz! Great pick!

    Also: I ADORE this cover. Seriously love it.

  2. Hey that's really cool!
    The cover!
    :D I liked Cinder a fair bit - though it wasn't exactly my thing - so I'm excited to see where the series goes.

  3. Gosh, I totally forgot all about Scarlet. I thoroughly enjoyed Cinder, and was totally immersed in their world. It will be interesting to see how the author merges the two fairy tales. Fingers crossed it won't get too complicated :)

    Will definitely use Scarlet as a future WoW post.

    Just came across your blog, and really enjoy reading your reviews.
