Waiting on Wednesday #2

Created by Breaking The Spine  🙂

Hi guys! So this is the first of three posts for today; I already have two weekly memes I do on Wednesdays, and without thinking I planned a third. I guess that means three posts every Wednesday? Haha, oops. XD

Anyway, for this week’s WoW, I chose Stars Above by Marissa Meyer. It’s a set of novellas for The Lunar Chronicles and will be released February 2, 2016. I’m super excited for this!!

The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories—and secrets—that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic. How did Cinder first arrive in New Beijing? How did the brooding soldier Wolf transform from young man to killer? When did Princess Winter and the palace guard Jacin realize their destinies?

With nine stories—five of which have never before been published—and an exclusive never-before-seen excerpt from Marissa Meyer’s upcoming novel, Heartless, about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Stars Above is essential for fans of the bestselling and beloved Lunar Chronicles.

The Little Android: A retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles.
Glitches: In this prequel to Cinder, we see the results of the plague play out, and the emotional toll it takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch….
The Queen’s Army: In this prequel to Scarlet, we’re introduced to the army Queen Levana is building, and one soldier in particular who will do anything to keep from becoming the monster they want him to be.
Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky: Thirteen-year-old Carswell Thorne has big plans involving a Rampion spaceship and a no-return trip out of Los Angeles.
The Keeper: A prequel to the Lunar Chronicles, showing a young Scarlet and how Princess Selene came into the care of Michelle Benoit.
After Sunshine Passes By: In this prequel to Cress, we see how a nine-year-old Cress ended up alone on a satellite, spying on Earth for Luna.
The Princess and the Guard: In this prequel to Winter, we see a game called The Princess
The Mechanic: In this prequel to Cinder, we see Kai and Cinder’s first meeting from Kai’s perspective.
Something Old, Something New: In this epilogue to Winter, friends gather for the wedding of the century…

(Goodreads synopsis ↑)

Eek! Another cool retelling, seven prequels, and an epilogue?! Yes, please!! I can’t wait to read them all, but I think I’m most excited to read Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky and Something Old, Something New. 😀

This is definitely one of my most anticipated 2016 releases! I’m just not ready to say goodbye to The Lunar Chronicles world and crew, so I’m ecstatic we’ll be getting a little bit more. ❤

Are you just as excited as I am? 🙂

Until next time- Olivia ❤ (2 posts left today)

  1. I haven’t read The Lunar Chronicles yet, although they got published here in Portugal (the first three; I don’t know if they’ll publish Winter). However, I really want to read them in English, so I think I’ll get them this Christmas (at least the first two. I’ll try to get Cress, to). Anyway, Stars Above seems really interesting and it looks like the kind of novellas book that every fan would like to have!
