[TO THE BOOKSTORE FOR...] Unravel Me and Scarlet

The first week of February book releases.

1. Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi.
Shatter Me was a pleasant read for me. [review here] It was one of those uber hyped up books that fell short in my opinion but don't let what I say completely influence you. I am curious to see how the story will continue, mainly this complicated love triangle, which is probably what is propelling me to read the sequel.

They also did some changes to the cover designs so now it's more like the Divergent covers and more symbolic. I don't like it. I think the covers with the girl had more impact but then again there is much to be said about simple, minimalistic covers too.

tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.

Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.

In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life. (From Goodreads)

2. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer.
First, if you haven't read Cinder yet, I suggest you do that post haste. It's an amazing book and I absolutely love it. Don't be like me and delay reading it because I did (For almost a year) and I seriously regret it completely because than I would have experienced it sooner but on the plus side the waiting time for this book (although equally unbearable) has  been shorter.

Scarlet is the sequel/companion piece to Cinder. It follows the story of Little Red Riding Hood, if the red cape wasn't an indication. I'm really excited for this and I really feel like Marissa Meyer can't do anything to bring me down from this Lunar Chronicles high...hopefully I didn't jinx it.

If you want to give this book a try before buying it, apparently the first five chapters have been posted on line.
Cinder returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison—even though if she succeeds, she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive.

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn’t know about her grandmother and the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother’s whereabouts, she has no choice but to trust him, though he clearly has a few dark secrets of his own.

As Scarlet and Wolf work to unravel one mystery, they find another when they cross paths with Cinder. Together, they must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen who will do anything to make Prince Kai her husband, her king, her prisoner. (From Goodreads)
