Cinder by Marissa Meyer
This is the book I wanted to write, I should've wrote, but didn't write. And you know what, I'm glad. I'm estatic, in fact, because Marissa Meyer did it way better than I ever could. Her imagination must keep her up at night.
Cinder's plot twists and hooks kept me reading from start to finish. I couldn't put the book down, and now I'm drooling for more. It's a fantastic twisted fairytale with a Sci-Fi depth that has me wanting to dig into the next installment.
What They Said: Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth's fate hinges on one girl... Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She's a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister's illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai's, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world's future. (www.goodreads.com)
You Shouldn't read this if:
You're absolutely intolerant of anyone with a prosthetic.
You can't handle the awesomeness of a writer that would combine a fairytale with futuristic Sci-Fi-ness, Cyborgs, Mind control, and creepy, beautiful women.
You're illiterate. For obvious reasons.
