adoptive family.She doesn t recall any of her life prior to the operation that resulted in her cyborg status, but has never questioned it too much.After all, what is the point of trying to remember When a plague sweeps over the city, her beloved stepsister, Peony, becomes infected Peony was visiting a market with Cinder at the time the plague broke, so of course Cinder s wicked Stepmother blames her for Peony s infection In the most heinous of acts, one she considers punishment, the wicked Stepmother donates Cinder to be used for scientific research finding a cure for the disease Apparently, in this world, cyborgs are considered nothan property Add in the fact that people have not been surviving the research process, and it is clear her Stepmother never wants to see her again She s

ambition She discovers something about Cinder, before Cinder even knows herself, and will stop at nothing to take her down, as Cinder s true nature threatens Levana s power.I adored this I loved all the delicious scifi elements that paid perfect homage to the original tale You could definitely tell this was the story of Cinderella, just bumped far into the future.I thought the pace was great I enjoyed Cinder as a character and also loved her relationship with Dr Erland and Peony and of course, her android, Iko, who was hilariously sweet I cannot wait to continue on with this series Scarlet is calling to me Why WHY DIDN T I READ THIS BOOK SOONER It was so AWESOME MY EMOTIONS Let me go ahead and get this out of the way I loved this book Why in the world did I procrastinate with reading it I ve had Cinder sitting on my Kindle for a few months now and I continued to put it off over and over again What a HUGE mistake I even had the nerve to go into my local bookstore twice, pick Cinder up, and put it right back down But all that doesn t really matter now because I ve remedied the problem and Why WHY DIDN T I READ THIS BOOK SOONER It was so AWESOME MY EMOTIONS Let me go ahead and get this out of the way I loved this book Why in the world did I procrastinate with reading it I ve had Cinder sitting on my Kindle for a few months now and I continued to put it off over and over again What a HUGE mistake I even had the nerve to go into my local bookstore twice, pick Cinder up, and put it right back down But all that doesn t really matter now because I ve remedied the problem and absolutely fallen in love with this wonderful story.When I first heard of Cinder before it s release, it was gaining quite a bit of buzz known for the retelling of Cinderella Marissa Meyer, my hat s off to you because a cyborg Cinderella in New Beijing, China Badass But then shortly before I read it, another blogger informed me that not only is it a Cinderella retelling, but also had Sailor Moon elements OMG someone had answered my prayers I don t think you can understand my excitement for that.Sailor Moon was my all time favorite TV show and manga as a child Reading Cinder reminded me of a simpler time before responsibilities, when the biggest thing I had to worry about was setting up the VCR yes, a throwback every day because at 4pm, right before Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon would come on If I were to miss one episode, I would cry my little eyes out because I just had to know what happened next to Serena I have seen every episode including the fifth season that didn t air in America I ve even seen the live action series in all Japanese And for those that watch subtitled Japanese shows, you know that there comes a time in your marathon watching where you stop reading the subtitles and start thinking Japanese in your sleep Yes, I am super fangirling and not ashamed one bit So I think it goes without saying that the reasons for me loving Cinder so much, aside from being blasted by a rainbow of awesome with its creative premise, is that it has a lot to do with sentimental memories I tell you this so you can understand one big thing I wasn t sure about Cinder at first As soon as the book started I noticed on every obvious downfall Predictability Seriously, the plot twist ran up to me and sucker punched me in the face at only 10% in This concerned me, but it quickly became a non issue as I continued to read Why Because the story was interesting It was engaging It was just plain old fun And I haven t had this much fun reading a book in a while.The plot was brilliantly done Cinder is a mechanic, under appreciated by her mother and one of her step sisters The other step sister adores her As a cyborg she doesn t have the same rights as a normal person and her step mother goes out of her way to remind Cinder this whenever she can One day Prince Kai swoon requests her services to fix his android And in true fairy tale fashion he begins to fall for her not knowing she is a cyborg But this isn t just a love story Oh no The world has been suffering from a deadly disease that kills in a matter of days and it starts to become painfully obvious that Earth s only hope for a cure depends on an alliance with the evil Lunar Queen And as you may have guessed it, she has plans for Earth Dun, dun, duuuunnnnnn I loved all the characters in Cinder, especially the heroine Cinder was independent, feisty, and relatable She didn t always make the right decision, but this is a heroine that learns from her mistakes And Tuxedo Mask Prince Kai I loved him Ah, the memories The romance was so sweet At first Cinder is wary of the Prince s advances because she is cyborg and doesn t want him to find out, but she can t help but develop feelings for him along the way Basically what I m saying here is that there s no insta love And you know how much I hate insta love Oh, and that ending Marissa Meyer, how could you do that to my little heart I need to know what happens now You took two of my favorite stories and twisted them into this big ball of badass awesomeness and now I m expected to wait until next year for book two And just look at the character line up for the next books in the series Scarlet , Cress and Winter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Snow White I am so there Just so we are clear, I m not above stalking I will have the next book and I will have it soonAn ARC was provided by the publisher via NetGalley Thank you More reviews at Cuddlebuggery Book Blog Stuck at home Got some time on your hands Want to start a long series But you

that I have a tough time going through yet another one Yet, the further I read, theI was delighted This book was unexpectedly sweet, endearing and enjoyable.My younger sibling had this book on a shelf for the longest time and finally at the nudging of one of my friends, I picked it up I m glad I did.Cinder is a cyborg mechanic living in New Beijing who, along with her best friend a robot named Iko and sister a fully human gal named Pearl , fall in love with Prince Kai But, life isn t all cleaning and singing, there s a ravaging plague and crippling poverty The plague can strike anyone at any time Aside Does no one know basic disease prevention The plague is detected in a public area, everyone ALWAYS scatters Gee, I wonder why this hasn t been contained.Cyborgs like Cinder, our heroine are recruited at a rate of one per day to be sacrificed for plague research Their families are given a hefty sum for their sacrifice Since cyborgs aren t considered true citizens, they can be turned in at any time When Cinder s stepmother was pushed just a little bit too far, she decides to turn Cinder in From there, she s interviewed by the doctor and set up to be sacrificedI don t know I don t actually remember anything from before the surgery His eyebrows rose, his blue eyes sucking in all the light of the room The cybernetic opetation No, the sex change The doctor s smile faltered I m jokingDespite the humor, the treatment of the cyborgs by humans really threw me off There s longstanding prejudices that cyborgs are living on borrowed time and thus owe their lives to society if need be i.e cyborg draft Now, I could see the logic against cyborgs if all of them had wiring in their brains thus rendering them incapable of independent thought or something of the like.One could conceivably claim that their brains are ruined or some other nonsense But the book treated all cyborgs the same i.e Some poor guy lost his foot and got a replacement Disgusting creature Sacrifice him Other than that, this was an entertaining retelling of Cinderella I liked how the relationship with Prince Kai isof a crush than an end all be all sort of love It was sweet, but not overwhelmingly so Kai cleared his throat Stood straighter I assume you are going to the ball I I don t know I mean, no No, I m sorry, I m not going to the ball Kai drew back, confused Oh well but maybe you would change your mind Because I am, you know The prince Not bragging, he said quickly Just a factI ve heard from others that the remaining books still follow the characters from the first I m hoping for aslow build sort of thing There was one thing that just completely blew me out of the water Our main character was burned in a fire thus requiring cyborg surgery at a very young age She lost 30% of her body and needed to live in a suspended animation tank for months.And what do we name herCinder Just let that sink in Audiobook CommentsRead by Rebecca Soler and she absolutely rocked it I loved listening to her tone characterizations especially Iko That was literally the cutest little robot voice I ever did hear.If you are curious about Rebecca Soler, check Tucker the Reader s interview Blog Instagram Twitter I m sure I ll feel muchgrateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn onIn this, my third attempt to read Cinder, I finally made it to the end But I find myself wishing I hadn t bothered Going into this book, I thought it was fair to expect a light, probably unremarkable, but ultimately entertaining read I did not come to this book wanting my mind to be blown with science or to be taken to another world by beautiful prose, but I also did not expect it toI m sure I ll feel muchgrateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn onIn this, my third attempt to read Cinder, I finally made it to the end But I find myself wishing I hadn t bothered Going into this book, I thought it was fair to expect a light, probably unremarkable, but ultimately entertaining read I did not come to this book wanting my mind to be blown with science or to be taken to another world by beautiful prose, but I also did not expect it to be so painfully boring Which it was.Cinder takes a bold and fascinating premise, sketches out a basic outline of it, and then never fleshes it out with any substance.Let s look at the wonders we have here A part cyborg protagonist, a loose Cinderella retelling in a future alternate universe, a setting in New Beijing, and a potential war with a kingdom of Lunar people a race who live on the moon This sounds like a recipe for a fantastic science fiction novel, and yet we get very little info beyond what I ve provided here.Who are these Lunar people What about their history How did they come to be on the moon How disappointing it was that we never found out ANYTHING about them beyond the fact that they have an evil ruler Queen Levana.And this setting in a future alternate world In New Beijing, even Do we ever get an exciting look into its culture Any beautiful or ugly visuals Any insight into its history, customs anything Nope.And even if I forgive that, if I say that maybe all that goodness is being saved for later series installments, I simply cannot forgive the lack of personality in our principle characters Cinder and Prince Kai are empty, self sacrificing heroes with little to no hopes, fears, desires and thoughts of their own Adri is the classic evil stepmother Iko was the not so funny sidekick.I m also not sure I understand why part cyborg people are considered second class citizens when they re basically regular humans who ve had parts added to save them But let s imagine I suspend that disbelief for a second why did Meyer waste this perfect opportunity for Cinder to consider what it means to be human For example, how much of a person can be replaced before they stop being a person and start being a machine Are there really any differences between humans and machines beyond the materials they re made from So many fascinating questions not being asked.Though really, I could have forgiven many things if only the plot had been compelling, the conflicts engaging, and the characters vaguely interesting I honestly had to force myself through.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr Youtube
