Waiting on Wednesday (7): Scarlet by Marissa Meyer
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
by Feiwel and Friends
This book will feature Cinder and Little Red Riding Hood and will take place in France.
“Book two, Scarlet, is based on Little Red Riding Hood. It continues Cinder’s story as she attempts to escape Queen Levana’s vengeance and learn more about her past. The story also introduces readers to Scarlet, a girl living in southern France whose grandmother has mysteriously disappeared. In order to find her, Scarlet seeks the help of Wolf, a street fighter with more than a few mysteries of his own.” (From Goodreads)
I think lots of people will be choosing Scarlet as their WoW pick this week, since the cover was just revealed, but I seriously CAN NOT WAIT for this book. I’m so jealous of all of you that already have ARCs! Man, why isn’t it already 2013???
What book are you waiting on? Let me know, or leave a link to your WoW post in the comments, and I’ll stop by your blog!

I know what you mean…once you see a book you wish for, it's hard to wait. I haven't read Cinder and Little Red Riding Hood, but I'm very tempted.
Here's MY WOW POST

I haven't read Little Red Riding Hood either, but I love fairy tale retellings! Cinder is my favorite book that I've read so far this year, so I'd definitely recommend it! Thanks for stopping by–I'm off to check out your WoW!

My blog partner really loved Cinder so I'm sure she'll be squeeling over this book too. So is each book going to be based on like a different fairty tale? I like that idea instead of just sticking with the Cinderella theme. Great choice!
Here's My WoW

As I understand it, each book will focus on a different fairy tale character, but Cinder is seen in each one, and is the main character overall. Book 2, Scarlet, focuses on Little Red Riding Hood, book 3, Cress, is based on Rapunzel, and book 4, Winter, is based on Snow White.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to check out your WoW!

I have requested Cinder from the library. I just want to show you my commitment (because I really, seriously, loved Pushing the Limits. ;)
Andrea @ The Overstuffed BookcaseJuly 14, 2012 at 7:18 pm
LOL! I appreciate your commitment! And it's a good thing I decided to try Pushing the Limits, because Steph got me an ARC from BEA! So I'll be reading it soon!

The first chapter of this was AMAZING and I can not wait to read it!!!!! GEEEEZ!!!!
Andrea @ The Overstuffed BookcaseJuly 14, 2012 at 7:22 pm
I still haven't read the first chapter! The second chapter is online too, on her blog I think. But I kind of feel like if I read it then I'll REALLY want to read Scarlet RIGHT NOW and I can't, so I'll be sad… ;(

I haven't read the first one yet, but they look good. Hope that you get it soon.

It's really great, you should give it a try! Thanks for stopping by!
LHughesJuly 13, 2012 at 10:27 pm
I FREAKING CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS BOOK!!! Scarlet sounds like such a cool plot premise and I was equally excited by what she revealed about Cress! I love, love, love the idea of Rapunzel being trapped in a satellite :D
I really think this is a series that I'm just going to be head over heels in love with. Sigh…
Andrea @ The Overstuffed BookcaseJuly 14, 2012 at 7:53 pm
I KNOW!!! I think you and Steph and I are like the Cinder Fanatics or something… We should form a group. ;)

Just knew this would be coming up on your WOW sometime lol, because of how much you enjoyed Cinder (still need to read it :/) I will read it before Scarlet comes out :D Great pick!
Andrea @ The Overstuffed BookcaseJuly 18, 2012 at 3:07 am
Yep! I knew I'd be picking it once the cover was revealed! Yes, you still need to read Cinder!!!
BittnerJuly 19, 2012 at 5:08 pm
I think I am going to try to reread Cinder in March, after Levithan Loveathon month! I am interested to see how the author works the story of Red Riding Hood into the next one. I bet it will be great though!
Andrea @ The Overstuffed BookcaseJuly 19, 2012 at 10:33 pm
Yeah, I'm most likely going to reread it before Scarlet comes out. I can't wait!!
Kate@Midnight Book GirlJuly 20, 2012 at 3:10 pm
If ever there was a better argument for me to read Cinder, it would be this sequel! I really, really want to read this book, so I'll get my hands on a copy of Cinder!
Andrea @ The Overstuffed BookcaseJuly 21, 2012 at 8:34 pm
Yipppeee! I'm so glad that you and Kim are both going to read Cinder! I hope you both love it!!
