CRESS by Marissa Meyer, Blog Tour: Lunar Quiz / Giveaway!


Welcome to today's last stop in MacTeen's CRESS BLOG TOUR! I'm so thrilled to be hosting today's stop, which includes a fun Lunar Quiz and an awesome GIVEAWAY! First, here's a little bit about CRESS, the 3rd book in Marissa Meyer's The Lunar Chronicles, which bookstores TOMORROW (2/4)!!


Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.
Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.
When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.

Which Lunar Chronicles Heroine Are You?
By Marissa Meyer


I spent a whole lot of time in my teen years taking quizzes in teen magazines. (“What is your prom style?” “Does he like you as more than a friend?” “What’s your dream first date?”) So in the interest of nostalgia (and promotion), I’m happy to present my first-ever Lunar Chronicles quiz!


Which Lunar Chronicles Heroine Are You?


1. If asked to describe your best characteristic, your friends would say you’re:
A. Resourceful
B. Motivated
C. Optimistic
D. Sympathetic


2. But they would probably say your worst characteristic is that you’re:
A. Overly analytical
B. Stubborn
C. Naïve
D. Crazy


3. What is your favorite (non-Lunar Chronicles) YA book?
A. Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld—the descriptive passages of steampunk machinery really get your motor running.
B. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins—you appreciate Katniss’s take-no-prisoners attitude.
C. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith—you’re a sucker for a great fated love story.
D. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi—the MC’s disjointed thoughts are pretty much how your brain works, too.


4. You’ve been invited to a royal ball! Your #1 wardrobe accessory for the night is:
A. Comfortable shoes. It will be hard enough to dance without looking like an idiot, why add heels to the mix?
B. A meaningful family heirloom, such as a vintage brooch.
C. A rhinestone-encrusted mask. You’re much more self-assured when you’re wearing a costume.
D. Who cares? You’re going to draw attention no matter what you wear.


5. You often fantasize about:
A. Having the freedom to do whatever you want, whenever you want.
B. Living a happy, simple life—all you want is contentment and security.
C. Passionate and adventure, like running away with a seemingly-dangerous yet vastly-misunderstood rock star.
D. Your cute best friend realizing that he’s actually been in love with you all this time.


6. You would describe your dream guys as:
A. Intelligent and honorable.
B. Shy and protective.
C. Suave and confident.
D. Loyal and a little bit snarky.


7. Your ideal first date would be to somewhere . . .
A. Fascinating and educational, such as a vintage car museum.
B. Outdoorsy and unpretentious, such as a laid-back hike.
C. Classic and romantic, such as a night at the opera.
D. Cozy and safe, such as cuddling on the sofa with a favorite movie.


8. The Disney heroine you relate to most is:
A. Mulan. Way to show the boys how it’s done!
B. Tiana. She’s self-motivated and doesn’t shy away from hard work.
C. Ariel. She would do anything for true love.
D. Belle. Everyone thought she was a little odd, too.


Mostly As: Cinder
You are one smart cookie with a lot of useful skills, and the people around you take notice. You’re able to keep your head when everyone else is panicking, and you’re not afraid to take charge in difficult situations. Just remember to make time for yourself once in a while too—there’s nothing wrong with a little self-pampering now and then. And don’t get so hung up on saving the world that you risk ignoring that cute, charming boy who’s been trying to catch your eye.


Mostly Bs: Scarlet
You appreciate the simple things in life: a home-cooked meal, the smell of fresh-cut flowers, and spending time with your loved ones. You’re not afraid to speak your mind, or to put in hard work when it comes to accomplishing your dreams. Sometimes your frank attitude can come off as abrasive, so don’t forget the power of a kind word now and then—especially to that quiet, sometimes uncertain guy who’s not always sure how to express his feelings toward you.


Mostly Cs: Cress
You’re a dreamer who longs for epic adventures and romance, despite your relatively ho-hum existence so far. Though you may be a little awkward and uncomfortable in large groups, you’re sure that the guy of your dreams would fall head over heels for you if he would just . . . you know, say hi. Dreams are important, but it’s up to you to make them come true. Don’t rely on fate—find your inner courage and go for it! Even the most self-confident boy could sometimes use a little encouragement.


Mostly Ds: Winter
Always gentle and kind, you’re well-liked and easy to get along with, but everyone seems to recognize that you’re also a little bit odd. You might display some peculiar interests or eccentric tendencies, and your friends and family don’t always know what to do with you. Frequently underestimated, you’re stronger and braver than people give you credit for. Surround yourself with people that can appreciate the person you are underneath the quirks. When it comes to romance, don’t overlook that boy who adores you just the way you are.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  16. I got Winter! I'm so excited for Cress! I may have to stay up all night reading it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. I got a mix between Cress and Winter and I think together they actually describe my personality very well! I didn't get any Bs which is interesting because I'm seeing that most of the people that have commented before me have gotten Scarlet. I guess I'm just way different or something . . . Anyway, thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I got Winter! I can't wait until tomorrow to read Cress, but now I am even more intrigued about Winter.

    ReplyDelete

  30. I got three B's, so Scarlet won out, but I also got two A's and two C's, so I'm really a mix of Cress and Cinder as well. I can relate to all three of them, so it makes sense.
