Waiting on Wednesday #5

I’m not certain if I’ll be glad about this or what. Pretty torn. I must admit, I’m a little disappointed when I heard the news. The anticipation is killing me and then this happened. This week’s WOW feature would be a new book from my favorite, Marissa Meyer.

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.


I’m not being bipolar and stuff, but I’m so thrilled when Marissa introduced her new masterpiece. Dated June 16, she posted a blog announcing the news. She will be having this full-length novel about the wicked tyrant of the Lunar Chronicles coming in January next year. The 27th of January 2015 to be exact. If you are wondering who she is, you must be living under a rock, sipping your pink lemonade and staring to nothingness. That could have been dull.

According to Marissa, Fairest will be delving into the back story of Queen Levana. It will start when she’s 15 years old and will cover about 10 years of her life, it will end about a decade before Cinder. They also confirmed that it will also feature the early version of Cinder and Winter as little children and a back story of the scientist, Dr. Erland.

“Here’s this thing you weren’t expecting!”

I didn’t see this coming. Really. I am so excited! Learning about those makes me so eager to get my hands on this book. I’m pretty sure that it will be a whole new adventure to enjoy and to discover new things about our well loved characters. And, the cover? Oh. My. God. That’s beyond amazing! Freaking incredible! I even found the photo in GIF format so it’s much awesome. 😍

But then again, this is the part when I was like.. “You’ve got to be kidding me?”. I was so excited about Winter, that it’s killing me. Only to find out that it will be pushed back to November of 2015 because of this.  Sigh. Sigh. I couldn’t be anything, but sad. I read comments about the news that’s likely sharing the same sentiments as I have. A lot of the readers are quite torn as well.

“One major event also occurs in Fairest that will play a huge role in some of the turning points in the upcoming Winter novel — one reason why Macmillan wanted to release Fairest first.”

That’s kind of intriguing, I admit I am tempted not to feel bad about it anymore. In fact, yes, I am thrilled so I’m being bipolar. Ha! Ha! I really can’t wait to have them both next year. 😃

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Breaking the Spine and serves to showcase those books that aren’t released yet, but that we’re eagerly awaiting!
