Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and allows book bloggers to spotlight releases that we are greatly anticipating.

This week, my Waiting on Wednesday pick is:

Scarlet

by Marissa Meyer

About Scarlet:

Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Why I’m Waiting on it:

Ummm… do you guys not remember the cruel cruel cliffhanger that Marissa left off with in Cinder? I think you do. I think you recall your jaw dropping open and falling to your knees, shaking your fist to the sky and shouting “MEYER!”

…Ok, maybe that last part was just me. ;)

Regardless, Cinder was amazing and Scarlet is also incredible. And if you thought Kai was swoony (as you should), you should be itching to add a few more of Marissa’s boys to your fictional harem.

Personally I can’t wait to hold a shiny hardcover in my hot little hands.

Scarlet’s expected publication date is February 5th 2013 by Feiwel and Friends.

You can preorder from:

Amazon | Book Depository | IndieBound | Books & Books
