Waiting on Wednesday - Cress (Lunar Chronicles #3) by Marissa Meyer

From Goodreads:

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.

I am fascinated when authors take a traditional fairy tale and recreate it into something all their own, so it is no surprise that I loved the first 2 books in this series - Cinder and Scarlet.  Knowing that there is another one coming makes me want to happy dance :)

Now for the sad part -- it isn't published until February of 2014.  BUT, that does give you plenty of time to go check out the other two books, just sayin'.

Now that you know what I can't wait to read, what are YOU waiting for?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a meme hosted by the lovely bloggers at Breaking the Spine - head on over and see what other readers can't wait to read.
