Waiting on Wednesday - Winter

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Winter by Marissa Meyer

13206900 I love love love the Lunar Chronicles! They're definitely one of my favorite dystopian series, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the last book in the series! :) Meyer had me hooked from the beginning with her unique way of warping and twisting the everyday fairy tale into something I had never even dreamed of, especially in a dystopian society. Scarlet's story was the one that really blew me away, but Cress's was a close second and Cinder 's was third, simply because it followed Cinderella's story pretty much completely. Except, I don't remember Cinderella being...cyborg.

Also, Marissa mentions this tidbit in an interview: "Winter is based on Snow White, and will be the epic conclusion of the story. Princess Winter, Levana's stepdaughter, has been raised in the luxurious courts of Artemisia, Luna's capital city, and has seen firsthand the destruction that can be caused when people abuse their Lunar gift. As a result, she's sworn an oath to never use her gift at all... which has come with the side effect of slowly driving her mad. There's only one person she feels she can trust—Jacin Clay, her best friend since childhood. Unfortunately, as a royal guard, Jacin is already under her stepmother's control..."

I can't recommend this series enough, and I cannot wait for the release of the next book!
