On her blog, Marissa Meyer has stated that WINTER is the biggest book out of them all, and she won't reveal how big until closer to the publication date. Also, page number has nothing to do with how slow or fast something is published: it is based on the author and the publisher's release schedule. Hope this helped!(less)

*** MARISSA MEYER IS FINISHED WITH WINTER!! ***


TEASERS (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.

“May I request a new uniform? A towel seems inappropriat

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

Can the goddamn cover just come out already? There better be a damn apple on it or something. Fuck, I can barely wait. Also, for the release date to be November is just plain cruel. Cruel.

Btw, is it really gonna be 800 pages? o_o Holy shit.

Update: WHOA. Is that the legit cover? If so, I KNEW THERE WAS GONNA BE A FUCKIN' APPLE ON IT.

During the ten minutes after I had finished Cress:

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

HOW SHALL I MAKE IT?

O, Jacin and Winter, I await greedily.

Oh please I'm dying.

Back in March 2014, after finally finishing Cress: 2015.



After the cover reveal: Why is each cover a different shade of indigo? Also, this is the most ominous apple I have ever seen.

Cover reveal: Slightly underwhelmed with the cover. I expected it to be darker, like an apple dripping blood or something.

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.

EDIT: Affirmative on the Apple!

The cover will probably feature a red apple right?

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

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.



Ugh.





But anyway, here are some of my theories


(9/2/14)
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

I live in Tacoma, Washington, with my fiancé and our two cats. In addition to my slight obsession with books and writing, I'm big on road-tripping, wine-tasting, and hunting for antiques. I'm represented by Jill Grinberg.

CINDER, my debut novel, is a futuristic re-envisioning of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic. Release date: 3 Jan 2012.
