Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I put Cinder on my library queue because the idea of a cyborg Cinderella sounded different and interesting. I'm glad I did because I really enjoyed Cinder.
Cinder is a cyborg with a horrible stepmother and two stepsister (Peony who she gets along with and Pearl who is like her mother, horrible). I liked Cinder. She's smart, independent, and creative. She's certainly not waiting for a prince to come and sweep her off her feet. She's got plans. But there is a prince that unfortunately doesn't get much fleshing out but hopefully we'll get to know him more in the next book. I loved this strange version of Earth, androids, humans, and cyborgs all living together. I think Meyer did a good job of world building. I look forward to learning more about Cinder's world in the next book.
Overall, I enjoyed Cinder. I think it was a good first book in an upcoming trilogy. Certainly keep me engaged. Others who shared their thoughts on Cinder: Becky's Book Reviews, The Broke and The Bookish, Book Journey, Books Devoured, The Discriminating Fan Girl, Debbie's World of Books, Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile, and Paranormal Indulgence.


  1. this book seems to be everywhere at the moment!

  2. I won this on audio so I'm going to cancel my library request. I can't wait to see how the author made this story alive!!


Shiny! I love comments.
