fangirling for...#2

10 December 2013

My second 'Fangirling For...'' post is going to be showcasing a book I have been waiting - and still am - for what seems like years. When I first read Cinder by Marissa Meyer, it had been a book that had been buzzing around for a while, getting rave reviews, but never really interesting me because I was so caught up in other books. When I got the chance to read it, I took it, after deciding there was no harm in trying, because i thought it looked interesting, and frankly, the cover was pretty so...
Series: The Lunar Chronicles #3
Publisher: Puffin
Publication Date: February 6th 2014
Pages: 560
Genre: Young Adult {YA}, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Fantasy
Blurb:
Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair—or her guard. 
In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army. 
Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker—unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice. 
When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can. -from goodreads
and now - well - I'LL I'M TRYING TO DO IS WAIT PATIENTLY. BUT I CAN'T AND IT'S KILLING ME AND I WANT THE BOOK NOW PLEASE AND THANK YOU.
Isn't the cover lovely as well? AND THERE'S GOING TO BE A FILM FOR CINDER I JUST. I can't. and just to pain myself even further. Who want's a little snippet?
“He leaned forward to inspect her closer. "Is that all hair?"
... Sudden, overwhelming panic clawed up Cress's throat. With a squeak, she ducked out of view of the camera and scrambled beneath the desk. Her back struck the wall with a thud that rattled her teeth. She crouched there, skin burning hot and pulse thundering as she took in the room before her— the room that he was now seeing too, with the rumpled bedcovers and the mustached man on all the screens telling her to grab her imaginary partner and swing them around.
"Wha—where'd she go?" Thorne's voice came to her through the screen.
"Honestly, Thorne." A girl. Linh Cinder? "Do you ever think before you speak?"
"What? What did I say?"
" 'Is that all hair?' "
"Did you see it? It was like a cross between a magpie nest and ball of yarn after it's been mauled by a cheetah."
A beat. Then, "A cheetah?"
"It was the first big cat that came to mind.”
p.s you can read the first chapter here.
