Waiting on Wednesday: Fairest by Marissa Meyer

Breaking the Spine features a weekly event where we talk about the books we can't wait to read.

By: Marissa Meyer
Release Date: January 27th 2015
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
In this stunning bridge book between Cress and Winter in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles, Queen Levana’s story is finally told.
Mirror, mirror on the wall,Who is the fairest of them all?
Fans of the Lunar Chronicles know Queen Levana as a ruler who uses her “glamour” to gain power. But long before she crossed paths with Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress, Levana lived a very different story – a story that has never been told . . . until now. 
Marissa Meyer spins yet another unforgettable tale about love and war, deceit and death. This extraordinary book includes full-color art and an excerpt from Winter, the next book in the Lunar Chronicles series

I love this series (see my review of the first three books here). I love the fairytale retelling aspect and the great ensemble cast. But I particularly like the very well-developed creepy antagonist, Levana. So the fact that this book will tell her story is very exciting for me. Also, I always like to think there's more to people's actions than them just being innately good or evil.


  1. YES! Definitely can't wait for this one! I've finally got into this series and all sorts of ready to meet and possibly understand the queen!

  4. Excellent choice! I love The Lunar Chronicles series. And while I wish this book wasn't pushing back the release of Winter, I'm okay with getting Levana's story and hopefully we will get an amazing conclusion to the series!

  5. I am so late to the game because I haven't read this series yet :( I have all the books just haven't found the time. I need to bump it up on my TBR because this one sounds fabulous!

  6. I still haven't started the series yet (I do own Cinder though) I'm trying to get to my books the next couple of months since I don't have that many Nov and Dec review copies so I AM GETTING TO CINDER. Finally. ;)

    Here's mine
