Reading progress update: I've read 4%.

Cress - Marissa Meyer

"You can help me pick out a tiara when we're done saving the world."

 

Oh man, I love this series. I am so happy to be back with these people.

 

Also, spoiler-ing this in case you don't want to read thoughts on where something might be going:

 

Thorne is an interesting last name, it occurs to me. Cress seems to be Rapunzel, whose prince ended up blinded by thorns in the version of the story I remember best. She is probably going to need a "prince," though given the series, she is likely to do a pretty hefty chunk of the "rescuing" by herself, thanks. Also, wow do I hope the blinding is metaphorical in some way. Though we could potentially end up with cyborg eyes, I guess, and that is always cool.
