Waiting on Wednesday *84*

Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming book releases that we're especially looking forward to!

Here's my pick this week:

Fairest by Marissa Meyer
The Lunar Chronicles # 3.5
Expected Publication: January 27 2015 by Feiwel & Friends

In this stunning bridge book between Cress and Winter in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
Who is the fairest of them all?

Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now.

Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series.
I've ALWAYS been fascinated with the story of how notorious villains become...well, so notorious and villainous. So I guess it should come as no surprise that I am super pumped to read all about the evil Queen Levana's story!  Are we going to get glimpses into her childhood?  Will there be a single defining moment that turns her from regular girl to pure evil, or a combination of things?  What does she REALLY look like under that glamour?  These are all questions I hope Fairest will answer. And I can't wait to see how everything unfolds!

Are you looking forward to Fairest?
Let me know when you link me up to your WoW post below :)

  2. YES YES YES!!!!! I absolutely love Marissa Meyer's The Lunar Chronicles. I'm actually finishing up with Cress right now. (LOVE IT) So anything having to do with any of these characters, I must read about. I'm really happy that the series is continuing as well with next year's Winter. GREAT WOW!!!!!
    Be sure to check me out ;)

  3. I need to read this. I loved Cinder & Scarlet and I want to know more about Levana! Aahg, so excited :D

  4. I've really enjoyed the Lunar Chronicles so I have to read this too :)

  5. I'm definitely looking forward to this one as well! Loving the Lunar Chronicles

  6. I need to read this one too! And it kind of came as s surprise for me (a little while back). Like, I had no idea this was in the works. And like you, I love books where we get to learn what makes people who they are.

  7. I know what you mean, villain backstories are always fascinating (if done right, that is). No one likes a cartoon villain who's just cookie cutter, undeveloped. There are SO many interesting things to learn about Queen Levana (all the questions you pose). I have a feeling that Fairest will introduce a side to Levana that will make us a bit sympathetic towards her...

  8. Can you believe I haven't started this series yet, Micheline? And I even own the first couple of books... Now, I just may wait until everything has been released, then do a marathon.
    I hope you're having a fantastic week! Happy reading.

  9. Awesome pick! I haven't heard of this one yet. I have to go check it out!

    Come check out my blog and maybe even hit the follow button? It'd be greatly appreciated!

  10. I still have yet to read Cress but I am really liking the series so far! This one sounds good, especially since it focuses on Queen Levana. Should be interesting! I'm really wondering if she has a sad backstory that made her the way she is now, like most villains.

  11. Is it me, or does it look like a LotR-themed Ringwraith Queen on the cover?

  12. This sounds like a great read. I haven't read this series, but it sounds like one I'd enjoy!

    Thanx for visiting my WoW!

  13. Oh yes, I'm looking forward to this one too :D
