Waiting on Wednesday (13): Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2) by Marissa Meyer


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
that showcases our most anticipated upcoming releases.

Title:  Scarlet (Lunar Chronicles #2)
Author:  Marissa Meyer
Publisher:  Feiwel & Friends
Expected Publication:  February 5, 2013

 Amazon  |  B&N | The Book Depository

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.


After yesterday's slightly gushy review of Cinder, it's no surprise that my WoW pick is Scarlet.  I can hardly wait to find out what happens next for Cinder and to meet Scarlet and Wolf.  Cinder was a book I wasn't sure I would like and certainly didn't expect to love, but it ended up being one of my favorite reads of 2012.  You can download the first five chapters of Scarlet for free from Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

  5. I am so anxious for Scarlet... it just can't get here soon enough.

  6. Well, well, I think it's time for me to finally read Cinder! *bows head in shame* I've really fallen behind due to so many review copies. I'm glad you're excited about this. Hopefully, I will be too. :)

    Great pick.

  8. I'm really looking forward to this too! I wonder how the Red Riding Hood story is incorporated into the book. :)

    Great pick!

  9. Great pick! This sounds awesome, though I do need to read Cinder.

  10. Enjoy! your pick.

  11. I am looking forward to this one as well. Cinder was my dying to read book of 2012 and it didn't disappoint. I can't wait to see the revamp of Red Riding Hood. I don't like this cover quite as much, though.

  12. I already have the book on my to-read list but I haven't read book one yet. I'd love to give them both a try though. Great pick!
    Come check out my WOW post.

  14. I need this book. NEED it, I tell you!!

  15. awesome WOW love :) I'm excited to do some features now that I have a break from school and get some blogging done. I can't wait to read Cinder! it has been on my list since it came out. The next book sounds good too! and it has a pretty cover. can't wait to go read your review for cinder next!
