Wednesday Reads

THIS.


So, here is another example of a book that has been in my TBR pile for almost a year now. Why did I wait so long? Love it. So much so that I passed it on to my husband. Which sounds funny for a Cinderella remake, but seriously, it's so cool and different and intriguing. (I think those were the exact words I used to pitch it to him) I don't hand a lot of my YA reads to my husband so that says a lot right there. So get this one onto your reading list, because book 2 comes out in January. So excited.

Goodreads summary:
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.

  3. I couldn't get into CINDER at all, Kasie. :( NONE of the sci fi or fantasy debuts of 2012 YA appealed to me but I think that will change with 2013 ;) and maybe I will wait a little longer to try to get back into CINDER. *sigh* I am so glad you enjoyed it though!!!

    1. Yes, it's always nice when you realize book 2 comes out so soon after reading a book you love. In a way it makes me glad I waited. :)
