Cover Reveal: Cress by Marissa Meyer

Fans of Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles series know that Cyber Monday isn't just a big online shopping day after Thanksgiving. It's also an annual opportunity for Macmillan to announce some cool TLC-related news or do a big giveaway for some exclusive swag. ICYMI, this year's big news was that the main four titles in TLC are getting new covers! That's right, lunartics, Cinder, Scarlet, Cress, and Winter (not Fairest or Stars Above though) have brand new illustrated and colorful covers! Check them out!

But that's not all! Each book is ALSO getting a specially designed stepback, which is publisher speak for the page behind the cover. Literally just learned that last week. See the contrasting stripe of color on the right edge of each cover? That page will be a second gorgeously illustrated new piece of TLC art! You may have seen the setback reveals for Cinder and Scarlet earlier this week, and today, I have the pleasure of showing off the new stepback illustration for my girl Cress. Shout out to all my fellow Cresswell shippers out there! I hope you love this art as much as I do! And keep an eye out tomorrow for the Winter reveal!
