Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder's brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annu...

    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 reall...

    “I'm sure I'll feel much more grateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn-on.” In 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 ...

    As seen on The ReadventurerLet me first give credit where credit is due. A cyborg Cinderella? Wow! It's a bold premise. I applaud Marissa Meyer for thinking this up. In this re-envisioning of the fairy tale, Lihn Cinder is a cyborg, meaning, she is almost half mechanical - she has prosthetic hands and a foot, a big chunk of her internal organs are wired into her body. Cinder is a mechanic in New Beijing, the capital of the Eastern Commonwealth, a...

    I guess I'm on a year-end quest to be the last person to read popular series. Last week: Hunger Games. This week: Cinder.Or not. I hated it. No binging this series, sorry, dear friends. You may think it's harsh that I give this book one star when there was nothing offensive about it, but considering the hype, I expected far, far more than that we were given.Before reading the book, I knew why it came highly recommended to me; in theory, this book...

    *mild spoilers* Cyborgs!!!! *squeeaaaal*Androids!!!! *squeeaaaal*New Beijing!!!! *squeeaaaal*Cinderella!!!!! *sque—uhm, I’m more of a Beauty and the Beast girl. But not bad. Cinder was one helluva ride for me. Saying that it was a special one is an understatement. Why I call it special? Because of the ups and downs it had. If you read my Kindle notes for this review you’d thing I’m suffering of DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder). What d...

    Re-Read On Audio! I love the narrator =)I'm still loving Cinder, Iko and Prince Kai. I loved one of Cinder's sisters but the other one and her stepmom. Ugggg. Cinder being a cybor-mechanic is too cool! There is a deadly disease going around and it kills so many people. They are trying to find a cure by doing some evilness. Cinder gets to meet Prince Kai and sigh, I felt so happy for her. Then there is Queen Levana from Luna. Don't even want to ta...

    “Even in the Future the Story Begins with Once Upon a Time.” Once Upon a Time,there was an avid reader (let's call her K) who thought she was very clever but she couldn't be more wrong.You see,she'd heard about a futuristic version of Cinderella in which Cinder is a cyborg mechanic that everyone seemed to love but she refused to read it,because she was skeptical and a little prejudiced.One day she read the first page but when she came to the...
