WoW Pick of the Week



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It is a chance to share those new releases were are super anxious to get our hands on and read.


I recently (finally!) started this series and it has been every bit as good as it promised to be so of course when I saw a story all about the queen, I couldn't resist choosing it for this week's book pick.



Release Date: January 27, 2014

Book Description:
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.

  1. Oh, wow, what a pretty cover! I read Cinder ages ago and didn't really like it. I dislike retellings in general so it's really not for me, but so many of my friends adore this series so I'm obviously the problem here.
