My new series obsession

14 Aug

At the YALSA Coffee Klatch at ALA, Marissa Meyer sat at our table and talked to us about the final novel in her Lunar Chronicles series,  Winter.

I was intrigued because I’d seen the other books on my local library, but had never read them. I picked up the first book in the series, Cinder,  recently.I got the audiobook because all I am actually reading in book form right now are Morris eligible books.I am near the end of the third disc and have decided that this series is my new obsession. Since my new commute will be about 10 minutes longer this year, I will have extra listening time in the car, so I’ve already decided that my year-long project will be to listen to all the books in the series during my commute.

In a nutshell, The Lunar Chronicles  are futuristic retellings of classic fairy tales. In CINDER, a teenage cyborg (half human, half machine) must deal with a wicked stepmother, start a rebellion against the evil Queen Levana, and decide how she feels about a handsome prince. As the series continues, Cinder forges alliances with Scarlet, a spaceship pilot who is determined to solve the mystery of a missing loved one — with the help of a magnetic street fighter named Wolf; Cress, a computer hacker who is imprisoned by Queen Levana; and Winter, a princess who’s in love with a commoner, and who discovers that Cinder, Scarlet, and Cress may hold the key to saving her kingdom — and the world.

Fortunately, my local library has the first 4 books in audiobook format. Winter  won’t be published until November, so I have time to take some audiobook detours away from this mission.
