Review: "Cinder" by Marissa Meyer

(The Lunar Chronicles #1)

Cinder is a retelling of the classic story of Cinderella. But this time, Cinderella is a cyborg. How can you resist wanting to read a story about a cyborg Cinderella? You can’t, you just… can’t.  So, I succumbed to this wild temptation and am so thrilled that I did! Cinder is a fantastic read full of surprises. It follows the story of Cinder, one of the most composed characters of the age of 16 that I have ever read. I could not put this book down because I was so enthralled with the wonderful characters: Prince Kai, Peony and even Adri, the old hag. The story telling of Meyer was refreshing and didn’t feel recycled to me. I will definitely be finishing this series.

5 Stars to a Cinderella story that surprised me.
