*Sees release date*

Angela (:

Helluva lot of teasers (taken from Marissa Meyer's Twitter):

She screamed like a thousand birds were picking at her flesh.
She screamed like the palace was burning down around her.

“Hold these wires and make sure they don’t touch.”
“What happens if they touch?”
“The ship will probably self-destruct.”

She was going to have to train herself not to stare at him quite as often as she was used to. That would be no easy task.

I have to wait 2 years for this?


Wait a minute... It's on the moon?



Marissa Meyer in Interview: (paraphrased)

"Winter decided not to use her Lunar gift. She experiences bad hallucinations and her mental state is deteriorating."





Winter is going to be such an interesting character I'm so excited!

After Reading Cress

So, without too many spoilers, I'm just going to leave this little exchange here:

Winter: "You shouldn't call me crazy. They don't like that."

Other Character: "But you are!"

Winter: "I know that I am. Do you know how I know? Because the walls of t...more

I am excited to read this as well as WINTER! If anyone else is looking for information regarding the future of THE LUNAR CHRONICLES (Specifically "Cress" and the finale "Winter") then look no further. I have dug through all the information I could find around the web and here you go:

>CRESS: will be out EARLY 2014 (Based on Rapunzel). Cress (short for Crescent Moon) is a computer hacker stuck in a satellite orbiting Earth, being forced to spy on the Earthen leaders for Queen Levana. Cress has...more

ARE YOU SERIOUS?!!! 2015?! 1 whole year. BRB CRYING.

1 whole year without this conclusion that I DESPERATELY need. 1 more year. *gasp* NEED MORE CINDER AND KAI.

I just love how Snow White will be a person of color. Totally wasn't expecting that. Is it Winter yet?

The following chunk of words and multiple updates are mostly theories that I have no where else to share. Be warned.

UPDATE 11/2/2014:
GUYS GUYS GUYS I HAVE A NEW THEORY (well actually two) AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL COME TRUE LIKE HOW MY THEORY ON (view spoiler) DID. Oh man was that a hella prediction/fantasy-at-the-time.

I ain't protecting your eyes from this spoiler like I did the older update. This one's about the Jacin and Winter romance.

I just finished Cress ten minutes ago.

During the ten minutes after I had finished Cress:

How I feel when I see the release date for Winter:


O, Jacin and Winter, I await greedily.

Come to mama

Oh please I'm dying.

Dear Ms. Meyer,

Please give me this book lest I turn into a crazed and handsome half wolf, half lunar rabid warrior. Nothing will stand between me and my Alpha my Scarlet my book. There will be no mercy unless my demands are remedied.

The cover will probably feature a red apple right?

*UPDATE 10/03/14
I've been doing some thinking.. And are Winter's 'pets' perhaps her dwarfs?
I mean, Scarlet definitely grumpy.. Understandably so, but grumpy nonetheless..

Teasers everyone!

^Jacin and Winter!

^That's gotta be Cinder to Kai

Read the rest of them here:

UPDATE 2/4/14

Now that I've read CRESS, I think I really like Jacin's character.
He's like one of those guys who pretends not to have feelings and acts all cold and uncaring. Also, there was a chapter with Princess Winter in it, although I'm not sure what her personality is like yet.
But I have a feeling that I'm gonna love the Winter x Jacin thing!

Having finished the Cress Book my feelings are in an inner turmoil. Not much worse with the second book cliffhanger but just as is! Ugh. I cannot.


Better find meself a new book to pry my focus on. Because this fucking book just shred all my emotions I didn't think I could have for a series and I want it. I want the next book so fucking bad.

6.2.13: Dear Marissa Meyer,

Sooooo how about you give me the book now?

No? Pretty please?

I'm singing again...

Still no?

Wait. WAIT.

Did I not read this correctly, or is Winter really coming out in November 2015?!

Holy shit. I didn't read it wrongly and Amanda Seyfried's eyes do not lie. But still. This release date is for real?!?! And I thought Jan/Feb 2015 was bad enough.


But anyway, here are some of my theories

Okay, so I'm trying to figure who's related to who and in what way but it's really confusing.

So in Cinder, it's mentioned that:
1. Levana murdered her husband
2. Levana murdered her sister, Queen C...more

Okay. There are gonna be spoilers in this review (well, it's not really a review, more like MY PREDICTIONS FOR WINTER!!! EEEEEEKKK!!!), so don't expect me to hide 'em all :P
Yah. So. Obviously I was sighing and OMG-ing at the end of Cress because Cinder and Kai kissed! A true, we-were-meant-to-be kiss.

And now, I have to wait a whole year for Winter to come out. Them authors gotta know how traumatizing it is for us readers to wait a whole year for another book.

Okay, enough babbling.
Now, my predi...more

EDIT: And here's a teaser from Winter, and I'm thinking it HAS to be Jacin talking to Winter: "I am your guard. I'm here to protect you and keep you out of trouble, and that’s it."
This means it's one of those romances where the guy keeps trying to deny his feelings and be all stoic but WE KNOW BETTER. <333


From this interview with Marissa Meyer, it seems Jacin (a Lunar guard we meet in the first book) will be Winter's love interest. I seriously...more

Wait... so it's not in Germany?! Sorry, this is kind of hard to explain.. Meyer has been setting her books in the countries of the origin of the fairytale. Like the Cinderella tale from China and a famous version of "Little Red Riding Hood" from France. Snow White is from Germany... Also I noticed that Winter is probably Levana's stepdaughter (in Cinder they talk about the rumors regarding the Lunar Queen and one of them was "she forced her stepdaughter to multilate her own face".)

Okay, you know what? To make the pain of waiting for one more year until this book comes out more bearable, I'm going to pretend that I don't want this book.




Yeah this is gonna take me some time. *sobs*

SO SAD! I want Cress so bad, but knowing it will end in a cliff-hanger, is it better to wait for Winter to come out, or read immediately. I was so happy I didn't read Cinder until Scarlet came out. I read it in 3 hours the day of, and got Scarlet from the bookstore! I was so happy. Now, about Winter. THE MOON! YES YES YES YES YES YES!

Snow White?!!!!! Aaaahhhh! Omgomgomgomgomg!!!!! Cinder and Snow White?!! I do hope Scarlet, and Cress take some part in the story though. Or is there going to be a fifth book?! I know I am taking this way too far. Cress is to be released in 2014 and this will probably be released in 2015 or later..... How am I going to live?! Ugggh!!!!
