Cinder – Marissa Meyer

Cinder Cinder by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

This is one of the books that I saw on display at my local library and completely judged the book by its cover. I didn’t know what it was about, but it looked interesting and I put it on my mental TBR list. Many years later, I have finally gotten a chance to read it (and the rest of the series.) This book was completely worth the wait. As a fan of fairytale retellings, like Beastly by Alex Flinn, I had high hopes for this book. It gave the reader wonderful little homages to the classic fairytale, while weaving the story through a world and characters all its own.

The world building in this novel, while not expansive was wonderfully done. As a reader, I could imagine Cinder meandering down the dingy, packed streets of New Beijing while Kai fretted over his father in the ornate, sprawling palace. There were a number of important characters and none of them were overlooked. You were able to learn about their personalities, histories, or relationships in a way that gave each depth.

Recommended for anyone who liked YA, romance, fairytales, sci-fi, or good books.

  1. […] The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer The characters in the Lunar Chronicles are not only loyal friends but are very hard working. No matter who they are or what their circumstances are, they strive to do their best as Kai does for his country, Cinder does even as she works on robotics, or Cress does stuck in her satellite. If this sounds interesting to you be sure to check out my review for Cinder here!
