Wishlist Wednesday. Cress

Hosted by Pen to Paper

Woohoo! Stella is back and better than ever baby! So, lately I haven't been reading as much, sadly. :( I've just been crazy busy lately. But now, all of that's about to change. So I've been thinking about what book I want lately, and quite honestly, I was coming up short, between the two library books I'm already reading, my massive book haul which I will discuss later, and all these books that Claire gave me, I'm pretty set for the rest of the summer. But, there is still one book I am dying to get my hands on!


In this third book in the Lunar Chronicles, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, now with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army. Their best hope lies with Cress, a girl imprisoned on a satellite since childhood who's only ever had her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker. Unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. When a daring rescue of Cress goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

So, as my devoted readers know from the past two reviews I've written, I love this series! I love everything about it! From the fairytale part, to the dystopian part, to the, well, the EVERYTHING part! I am absolutely thrilled about the expansion of this series, and I can not wait for the third installment. 

Cress is a character that we met in the first book, she played a small but crucial role in "Cinder". I had no idea who she was, but now everything is coming together. From what I saw of her, I know she is based on the fairytale character, Rapunzel. Also, if I'm correct with my premonition of the third book's plot, then I know she will be an excellent character to read about! 

I'm not only pumped to meet the new character, but also to revisit some of the other characters including Scarlet and Cinder. I'm also really looking forward to another Kai and Cinder moment; crossing my fingers! I mean, who else is going to crash his wedding with Queen Lebitch, I mean Levana. :)

All and all, super excited for this book! I can't wait to read it!

  1. I've always wanted to read that book too! I've read Cinder, but haven't continued to the other 2 books yet! I'm planning to finish it though! :)) Loved the first book!
