Sneak a Peek Saturday is a feature that I like to indulge in because I cannot wait to read the tasty tid bits that are put out there for us ravenous readers to enjoy.  

I adored CINDER and have eagerly awaited it's sequel with SCARLET. This new series is fresh, innovative and so much fun that it is a joy to read. To enjoy a little snippet you can click on the book cover below for peek but if you want more (and how could you not). Now, macmillian has allowed the first five chapters for a free download. Just click HERE to enjoy those chapters ASAP.

This time, it’s Little Red Riding Hood set in the distant future. And yes, there is a big, bad Wolf.

Cinder, the cyborg mechanic, returns in the second thrilling installment of the New York Times-bestselling Lunar Chronicles. She’s trying to break out of prison -- even though she’ll be the Commonwealth’s most wanted fugitive if she does.

In another part of the commonwealth, Scarlet Benoit’s grandmother is missing. Although Scarlet has lived on her grandmother’s farm for years, it turns out there are many dangerous secrets there that she never knew. While Scarlet struggles to make ends meet, she encounters Wolf, a city street fighter with information that could help. Though Scarlet is loath to trust this stranger, she is also inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her.

The fates of Cinder and Scarlet collide as the threat of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana spreads across the earth…
" Scarlet is the second book in Meyer's The Lunar Chronicles young-adult series.Cinder reappears in the next futuristic tweaking of a familiar fairy tale — as does Prince Kai, the evil lunar ruler Queen Levana, and a heap of intergalactic intrigue.

Debuting in the new book, however, is Scarlet Benoit, a young French woman who enlists the services of a street fighter named Wolf when she finds her grandmother, a former military pilot, gone missing

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
