And it looks like I'm back to my old intro...
This is my first review, yay!
And what a book to start with but Cinder, OMG!
My mind is still REALING from the information that I've just obtained! And if you've read it, you know what I'm talking about! And if you haven't read it, go out and buy it now!
Now, let's get to it!
Author: Marissa Meyer
Genre: YA (Young Adult), Retelling & Sci-fi
Release date: January 3rd 2012
Pages: 387 (There's 387 in my book)
Blurb: "Cinder, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She's reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai's she finds herself at the the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen- and a dangerous temptation.
Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth's future."
I can practically hear you guys thinking, OMG you only just read Cinder? It's been out 3 years already! And yes, I have only just read it now, and I wish I had read it sooner.
Because it was FANTASTIC!
I loved this book SO FRICKIN MUCH! I flew through this book to the point where I just had the time to contemplate what happened when they brought the traditional features of the story of Cinderella until something else happened that caught my attention and dragged me along the wonderful Sci-fi ish plotline that had no faults whatsoever!
Plot: The plot was so entertaining, I wasn't bored for one minute of reading the book. This is because you just didn't know what Meyer was going to do next, and the plot twists and the directions that the book took really surprised me, I admit it.
Writing: The writing just... flowed. This book went from strength to strength, but it didn't seem to just go from point to point, it just flowed flawlessly. Seriously.
Characters: I really liked the characters, whether good or bad. The bad were the most horrific, actually glaring at the pages when I saw what they were going to do, and the good are just the whole package, and just make you want to root for them :).
So overall, I highly recommend this book, because it's all just incredible, the characters, the plot, the writing, all of it! And I hope to God that the rest of the series is associated good as this one.
So that is all I have today, and I hope you enjoyed my first ever book review! (Probs not, though. I hope you did though)
