CRESS by MARISSA MEYER Initial Review!

Book: Cress
Author: Marissa Meyer
Rating: four stars (out of four)
Release date: Feb. 4, 2014
Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
Source: ALA

Oh. My. STARS!

Riveting. Positively riveting. So many twists! So many turns! So many gasps! I don’t know how Meyer does it, but she expertly navigates through a variety of characters and plots and subplots (and ROMANCE!) and creates such an amazing STORY that I’m completely swept up and CANNOT PUT IT DOWN UNTIL I’VE CONSUMED EVERY LAST WORD.

Seriously. I told myself I would only read a few pages while I ate dinner. And then, once I realized I was 82 pages in, I gave up all pretense of getting anything else done and settled more comfortably into my papasan chair.

And this may be the hardest part. There is NO FINAL BOOK. As in, right next to me, right now, at this very moment, available to read. What. Am. I. Supposed. To. Do. With. Myself. Now?!!? Do I really have to wait until 2015 for the final installment?!!?

For all of you Cinder and Scarlet fans out there patiently (or maybe not so patiently) waiting to read Cress, don’t worry, it delivers. Oh, it most CERTAINLY delivers.
