Waiting on Wednesday: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

This is Breaking the Spine's Waiting for Wednesday, where bloggers post about a book they just can't wait to get their hands on! 


  Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

February 5th 2013

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 loved Cinder, and the future adventures of our Cyborg Cinderella are certainly on top of my to-read list!


  1. Although I haven't read "Cinder", I LOVE fairytale retellings, so I'll definitely add this one to my TBR pile! (I've already got "Cinder" there.) GREAT choice!! :)

    My WOW: http://anightsdreamofbooks.blogspot.com/2013/01/waiting-on-wednesday-63-conspiracy-of.html#more

  2. I'm reading a RRH retelling right now and it's not fantastic, so I'm really looking forward to this one. (especially since I loved CINDER!)

  3. I'm so waiting for this too. I have it on reserve at the library. Thankfully they're already getting in some of the new books I'm waiting for.
