Waiting on Wednesday : Stars Above

by Marissa Meyer
Expected Publication: February 2, 2016
SERIES : The Lunar Chronicles
PUBLISHER : Feiwel & Friends

The enchantment continues….

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.

Why Am I Waiting?

The Lunar Chronicles is one of my all-time favorite series so I’m so excited for this book. With nine short stories! Nine! How cool is that? I only read Glitches and it was heart-wrenching. I’m excited to read Kai’s perspective, to know more about Captain Thorne and for the wedding of the century.

  1. While I really need to get caught up on this series, I think the cohesiveness of the covers on the entire series is some of the best ever done. Hope you love it and I still need to pick up Fairest and then this one to have my series complete.

    1. I agree with you. The covers are perfect! I haven’t read Fairest but I’m planning to. Thanks for the comment, btw. 🙂
