“Happy Book Birthday To…” is a feature I created in April 2015 to showcase books that have just been released. The purpose of the posts is to celebrate book releases and share my excitement for them. These posts won’t be made on a regular schedule (like once a week, once a month, etc). Instead, they will be made whenever a lot of books on my TBR are being released on one day and/or when a highly anticipated book from my TBR is released. To find the links to my previous Book Birthday posts, go here.
Author: Marissa Meyer
Series: The Lunar Chronicles #4
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Genre: Young Adult, Sci-Fi, Retelling
Synopsis: Princess Winter is admired by the Lunar people for her grace and kindness, and despite the scars that mar her face, her beauty is said to be even more breathtaking than that of her stepmother, Queen Levana.
Winter despises her stepmother, and knows Levana won’t approve of her feelings for her childhood friend–the handsome palace guard, Jacin. But Winter isn’t as weak as Levana believes her to be and she’s been undermining her stepmother’s wishes for years. Together with the cyborg mechanic, Cinder, and her allies, Winter might even have the power to launch a revolution and win a war that’s been raging for far too long.
Can Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter defeat Levana and find their happily ever afters?
I can’t believe that the book I’ve been anticipating for so long is finally here!! Winter was definitely one of the releases I was most looking forward to in 2015. All I want to do is drop everything and read it, but unfortunately I won’t be able to. I’m currently rereading Scarlet (book #2) and plan on rereading Cress (book #3) next. I’m considering rereading Fairest as well, but it depends on how impatient I am to get to Winter. I guess I should have started rereading the series a little earlier!
Happy Book Birthday to Marissa Meyer and congratulations on concluding a fantastic series!
