Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles)

Book Synopsis (Goodreads):

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.

 

Some quotes that interested me:

“Vanity is a factor, but it is more a question of control. It is easier to trick others into perceiving you as beautiful if you can convince yourself you are beautiful. But mirrors have an uncanny way of telling the truth.” 
― Marissa MeyerCinder

“Clearing his throat, Kai murmured, “You have no idea how to dance, do you?”
Cinder fixed her gaze on him, mind still reeling. “I’m a mechanic.”
His eyebrows raised mockingly. “Believe me, I noticed. Are those grease stains on the gloves I gave you?” 
― Marissa MeyerCinder

 

My opinion:

Although this book has some mixed reviews, I always enjoy an interesting mix of a children’s tale. This book is based off of Cinderella and is said to have a ‘Sailor Moon-esque’ vibe, which I’ve enjoyed since childhood. From the quotes provided on Goodreads, I can already tell that the author has a great sense of humor and sarcasm.

  1. I’ve read Cinder and thought it was really fast paced etc. and then I saw reviews where people said it was so slow they had to stop reading and I almost laughed because it seemed so absurd to me.
