~Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Paperback, 387 pages
Published January 5th 2012 by Puffin
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, the ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl...

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

I've read a lot of fabulous books this month but Cinder was the most amazing of them all. I can't express enough how much I've enjoyed this book. Everyone should read it! 


  1. Wow- that's a lot of books reviewed!
    Some great ones there though- I loved Cinder as well, and I can't wait to read Scarlet.
    I really need to read Half Blood soon as well- everyone seems to rate it 5 stars!
    Have a good weekend!

    1. Most of them are short stories so they got short reviews on Goodreads but I enjoyed a lot of them immensely!
      Scarlet needs to just fall out of the sky and into my hands! xD
      Half-Blood was really good! Read it! :D Hehe
      Have a good weekend also!

  2. I've heard epic things about Cinder and I really need to finally pick up a copy. I'm off to check out your review of the Frostbite graphic novel as I just read the Vampire Academy series this month and really enjoyed it!

    My best of the bunch post is here if you'd like a look :)

  3. Wow an amazing month for you! And I've heard amazing things of Cinder. Glad it's the winner for you. :) I do think I need it. :D

  4. I also loved Cinder and Half Blood! Don't you just love reading the short stories? I do!
