Waiting on Wednesday (117): FATES and CRESS

WoW is hosted by Breaking The Spine

FATES by Lanie Bross
February 11th, 2014
"What if your destiny was to kill the one you love?

One moment. One foolish desire. One mistake. And Corinthe lost everything.

She fell from her tranquil life in Pyralis Terra and found herself exiled to the human world. Her punishment? To make sure people’s fates unfold according to plan. Now, years later, Corinthe has one last assignment: kill Lucas Kaller. His death will be her ticket home.

But for the first time, Corinthe feels a tingle of doubt. It begins as a lump in her throat, then grows toward her heart, and suddenly she feels like she’s falling all over again—this time for a boy she knows she can never have. Because it is written: one of them must live, and one of them must die.

In a universe where every moment, every second, every fate has already been decided, where does love fit in?"

I'm intrigued by this book! It sounds like it could be interesting, and I like the cover!

CRESS by Marissa Meyer
February 4th, 2014
"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."

*freaks out silently* I pretty much need this book. Glad to see that it got a fabulous cover!

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. I was so excited when I saw your WoW post featured Cress! I hadn't seen the cover or synopsis yet. I can't wait to get my hands on this one!

  2. I'm Waiting On Cress, too!! SUCH a fantastic series -- can't wait to see what's up next with the whole gang!

  3. I've seen Cress a lot since the cover came out. I really need to get reading the second book. Great picks!

  4. Oh, I'm so excited for both of these. I haven't read past CINDER yet, but I loved it, and I can't wait to read on. Plus, the covers of that series are just phenomenal. Great picks, Lea! :)

  5. Great picks! I almost picked Fates as my WoW for this week. I love the sound of it! I still haven't read the first book in the Lunar Chronicles series yet. It's shameful! I need to b/c I've heard such awesome things.

  6. fates looks so interesting!! thank you for sharing!

  7. I must admit I squealed a little (a lot) when I finally got to see the cover for Cress. It is my favorite so far and it was my Cover Crush pick this past week. Both great picks! My WoW.

  9. Ohh, awesome picks :D First time I hear of Fates, and ohh. It sounds awesome :D Sigh. Cress. <3 DYING to read it. Hope you'll enjoy both books :)

  10. Cress did get a lovely cover! I'm anxious about this one because I loved Scarlet so much (and Kai so little). I doubt Cress will be able to live up to the previous book--for me, anyway.

  11. I'm very excited for both these books too.
    Fates sounds like it has a great premise and I want to know what she did to get exiled already! :)
    And Cress, I just love that cover. It's my favorite out of the series so far! :)

    Great picks!

    Have a great day!! :)

  14. Fates has a very cool cover. Nice pick!

  15. Ooh both looks good! I love both covers, and I still haven't read Cinder. It's getting pushed to the top of my list, though. Great picks :)

  16. I can't wait for Cress! *nabs publisher*

    Fates sounds interesting too. Great Picks!

  17. That cover for Cress is perfection. <3

    Great picks, hon! <33

  18. Unsurprisingly so many people have posted about Cress this week, which is just making it even harder to wait for its release. Why isn't it 2014 yet???

  19. These both have fabulous cover. I'll need to keep an eye out for these. February's not that far away...right?

  20. SUCH a great cover for Cress!! (Actually, they have all been pretty fantastic). Umm, but I still need to read Scarlet. Ack, I know, I know. As soon as I find time, I will be joining you in needing this one, I'm sure!!
