Cinderella Gets a Twist!!!

Bonjour my SPRING BREAK friends!!!

Yestarday I finished the book Cinder bt Marissa Meyer. Cinder is in the series, (it is the first I might add...) called the Lunar Chronicles. The sequel Scarlet is set to come out in 2013, the 3rd book Cress is set to come out in 2014, and the 4th book Winter is set to come out in 2015.

Cinder is about a 16 year old cyborg girl named Cinder. She is a mechanic, and when the prince of the Commenwealth, Prince Kai, comes to her booth a the market asking for his android, (like a robot) to be fixed, a series of events trail after. These events change Cinder's life, and everything she thought she knew about herself.         ^
To analyze the title, : as said just up there, the protagonist is a girl named Cinder. The book is named Cinder. Well there you have it folks!!!!

For the content of the book;
  • I enjoyed the well thought characters and plot
  • The futuristic setting is appealing with this common modern trend
  • The writing style was normal, but the fact that it was a page turner made it hard to put down.
I don't really have any complaints, except that HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO WAIT UNTILL 2013 TO READ THE SEQUEL?????????????????

Haha, I bet that got a laugh out of ya ;)

Anyway, now I am re-reading Magyk by Angie Sage. I first tried this book maybe 3 years ago, then tried it again 2 years ago. Both those times I didn't get into the book, but when I tried it last  year I got through the whole shabang and loved it.

I'm trying it for a 4th time, only because I have all of the sequels that I never read in my possesion, and I want to refresh my memory of what happended in the first book.

So toodle-lou, and happy reading!!!

Au reviour,

  1. Hi Remedyleaf! It was great to talk to you today on your visit to CWA. I also can't believe I have to wait until 2013 to read the sequel...maybe we can get Marissa Meyer to visit CWA and give us a sneak peak. I hope you enjoyed your visit.
