The enchantment continues....

The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories—and secrets—that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic. How did Cinder first arrive in New Beijing? How did the brooding soldier Wolf transform from young man to killer? When did Princess Winter and the palace guard Jacin realize their destinies?

With nine stories—five of which have never before been published—and an exclusive never-before-seen excerpt from Marissa Meyer’s upcoming novel, Heartless, about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Stars Above is essential for fans of the bestselling and beloved Lunar Chronicles.

"The Little Android": A retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid", set in the world of The Lunar Chronicles.
"Glitches": In this prequel to Cinder, we see the results of the plague play out, and the emotional toll it takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch….
"The Queen’s Army": In this prequel to Scarlet, we’re introduced to the army Queen Levana is building, and one soldier in particular who will do anything to keep from becoming the monster they want him to be.
"Carswell’s Guide to Being Lucky": Thirteen-year-old Carswell Thorne has big plans involving a Rampion spaceship and a no-return trip out of Los Angeles.
"The Keeper": A prequel to the Lunar Chronicles, showing a young Scarlet and how Princess Selene came into the care of Michelle Benoit.
"After Sunshine Passes By": In this prequel to Cress, we see how a nine-year-old Cress ended up alone on a satellite, spying on Earth for Luna.
"The Princess and the Guard": In this prequel to Winter, we see a game called 'The Princess'.
"The Mechanic": In this prequel to Cinder, we see Kai and Cinder’s first meeting from Kai’s perspective.
"Something Old, Something New": In this epilogue to Winter, friends gather for the wedding of the century...

Why I'm waiting on this one!

I haven't yet read The Lunar Chronicles, and
I could kick myself for not doing so!!
Well, I do have the first two books
in this VERY hot series, which 
means I'd better get with it!!
Now I not only have Winter to look forward
to, but this AWESOME collection, too!! 
I have heard SO many great things
about this series, and I'm making a very firm 
New Year's resolution to  
start reading it at last in 2016!!

What do you think of my choice?
Leave your link below, so I can
come check out your pick(s)!


  1. I plan on marathonin this series someday. I read Cinder years ago and will need to re-read it before continuing. I own all but Winter, which I think I am getting for Christmas. I really like how all the covers tie in together and this one is no different. Seems to be a popular pick for Waiting on Wednesday.

    1. Hey, Barb!

      That's a great idea! I think I'll do the same thing. But first I would have get the rest of the books.

      You're getting "Winter" for Christmas? WOW. Very appropriate, too!

      Yes, all the covers do tie in together, which is totally AWESOME!

      I didn't know this was a popular choice today. That means a lot of us bookworms have great taste! Lol.

      Thanks for the nice comment!! : )

  2. I've not finished this series (read Cinder years ago and loved it, but stopped there!), but I definitely plan on rereading Cinder and binge-reading the rest of the books in the future! This book sounds like a great addition to the series. I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a lovely week, Maria. :)

    1. Hi, Alyssa!

      Heck, I haven't even started it! Lol. I do have the first two books, though, so I have to get to them....I do want to read the entire series, so I will probably be bingeing on them, too! Of course, I need to have this one, as well, to make the series complete (the is, if she's not going to write any more volumes, which I don't think will be the case). I know I will enjoy this latest addition!!

      You're very welcome for my visit! Thanks for commenting back!! : )

  3. I need to start this series too! Oh ma gosh I feel like I'm missing out badly. Seems so exciting. Hope we both get to start soon :)

    1. Hi, Shane!

      Yeah, I know! I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't started this series yet. Sometimes it seems as if I AM the only one who hasn't! Lol. This is my first New Year's resolution -- to start reading The Lunar Chronicles! Oh, and The Mortal Instruments series, as well!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!! : )

  4. Oh yes!!! I cannot wait for this one for sure. I just love this series! Great choice. Thanks for stopping by The Cover Contessa. Have a great weekend!

  5. I only read the first book but it's AWESOME! I already can't wait to read the other books because I heard equally great things, so I'm pretty excited! Awesome choice & I hope you'll love the series! :D
