Winter - Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where you feature a yet-to-be-released title you're anticipating!

Title: Winter (The Lunar Chronicles #4)
Author: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: November 10, 2015 by Feiwel & Friends

The Artist Librarian's #WaitingOnWednesday is "Winter" --Marissa Meyer's finale to her popular scifi fairy tale adaptations, "The Lunar Chronicles."
1. I'm guessing this is Levana's hand?
About the Book:
"Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.

Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won't approve of her feelings for her childhood friend--the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn't as weak as Levana believes her to be and she's been undermining her stepmother's wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that's been raging for far too long.

Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters? Fans will not want to miss this thrilling conclusion to Marissa Meyer's national bestselling Lunar Chronicles series."
Why I'm "WoW" about Winter:
I'm a relatively new "Lunartic" (a Lunar Chronicles fan) since I came upon the series in early 2014, but I love these fairy tale adaptations!  I like to call them Fairy Tales + Sci-Fi = A Series You Don't Want to Miss!  I actually still haven't read the "prequel" Fairest yet, which was released earlier this year, but I should be able to get to it while I wait for the library to process Winter.  One of the things I'm so excited about is the page count:  832 pages!  Excuse me while I let that sink in a moment ... Book #3, Cress, was 550 pages and it was a pretty substantial hardcover.  I can't imaging what Winter might look like!  Even though I don't want to say good-bye to Cinder and co. (after all, it seems like I've only just gotten to know them), at least I'll have a lot of time with them before the book is over. 

Have you read or watched fairy tale adaptations? What is your favorite fairy tale or adaptation of?  What do you think makes a good fairy tale adaptation? Also, if you've participated in "WoW" feel free to share!1. Winter by Marissa Meyer book cover. Feiwel & Friends, 2015.

    1. I'd definitely recommend reading these in order of publication date: Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, Fairest (prequel), and Winter. =)

      I checked out your 'WoW' pick --you have so much restraint to wait until all the books in a series is released! =)

  2. I LOVE the lunar chronicles series! I just started reading Cress a few days ago. The character dynamics are great and the world is so intriguing to me. I can't wait for Winter! Great pick!

  3. I hear all the time that these books are amazing! The fact that I haven't read them yet is actually sort of embarrassing. Ah, well. At least when I finally do, I won't have to wait for Winter. There is that. :D

    1. So many books, so little time ...

      But these are really good --They're my top general market YA recommendation. Yeah, sometimes it's nice to come into a series once they're all published (no waiting involved)!
