    Hi! Comments for Cress is now beginning. I am so happy to start this off! What I like best about Lunar Chronicles, is that it is a combination of fairytale and sci-fi. The characters are so well developed and the books are so fast paced! I am looking forward to Cress because I love Rapunzel, and because obviously I’m excited to read the next Lunar Chronicles book. Also, because in this book we get to meet Winter and new characters. And because I love the character Cress and because it takes place on the moon. So, what do YOU like best about Lunar Chronicles? What are you looking forward in Cress and Winter? What do you think will happen and who is your favorite character? Thanks so much, and get the comments rolling! 🙂 -Cyborggirl100 a Can’t wait until I can get my hands on Cress! Thank you, Marissa!

    Last fall I gave my teen age son a reason to hate me. I gave him Cinder and Scarlet to read, which he did in one night. The next morning I told him, you’ve always wanted a reason to hate me and now you do..the next book doesn’t come out until next year. He’s coming with me tonight to the Launch Party to get his hands on Cress. Good thing his school has late start Wednesdays as I’m sure he’ll stay up all night to read Cress! Marissa, thanks so much for rocking our world!

    Hi, so I might be wrong, or maybe it’s just my computer, but the first two links, the That Artsy Girl one and the Mermaid Vision Books one seem to both go to the same link, the one for Arugula.

  7. Marissa commented on:

    Thanks for telling me, May! It’s fixed!

  8. Aimee commented on:

    Ordered Cress off Amazon! Now I just have to wait for it to arrive…

    These blog tours (almost) make up for having to wait for the books to come out! The posts are always so fun and creative. I think my favorite this year was the wedding feast, and after that the ode to spaceship captains, the personality quiz, and Meg Tao’s fanclub post…but they all rocked! 😀 Keep it up!

    Can’t wait for Winter–or the Winter Blog Tour!
