Cover Reveal: Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

Scarlet is the second book in the Lunar Chronicles, due to release February 5, 2013. Today the cover's been released! My first thoughts were: "Is it someone flying? What does that have to do with the story?" After reading an interview I read here, I realized that the cover isn't someone flying, but a cape.

Just like Cinder's fairy tale focus is Cinderella, Scarlet's fairy tale focus will be Little Red Riding Hood. Here's a small blurb: "Book two, Scarlet, is based on Little Red Riding Hood. It continues Cinder’s story as she attempts to escape Queen Levana’s vengeance and learn more about her past. The story also introduces readers to Scarlet, a girl living in southern France whose grandmother has mysteriously disappeared. In order to find her, Scarlet seeks the help of Wolf, a street fighter with more than a few mysteries of his own." [via]

Might I say that Marissa Meyer is a genius. Tying all these different fairy tales into modern retellings, all in one series, were they're all intertwined? Genius. Pure Genius. I am very much so looking forward to reading Scarlet.

Might I just add that her next two books in the Lunar Chronicles are also based on fairy tales? Read for yourself: "Two more fairy tale fantasies will follow Scarlet, including Cress (2014), Meyer's take on the Rapunzel legend, and the Snow White-inspired conclusion, Winter (2015)." [via]

  3. Wrestlng is still stupid. If they'd just swiss replica watches wrestle and quit it with the soap-opera/storyline bullshit it probably would be intreresting to watch. But what the hell? It's the only sport, the louis vuitton outlet ONLY sport that needs to validate itself with stupid ass characters and stupider plots or whatever you want to call them. How would you like it if the NFL chanel replica started going on The Hills meets the NFL meets Friday Night Lights. Oh, no, Ricky Henderson's wife is cheating replica handbags on him with Brett Farve. He's out for vengeance. Hahaha. Dumb.
