This is just a really fun adaptation of Cinderella. It's been on my list for ages and I found it enjoyable with a strong female protagonist and fun world-building. It definitely ends with you wanting to read the next installment right away though but overall this is a fun read that brings up inter...

I have a new book boyfriend and he hangs around in markets chatting up girls covered in engine grease. He's a dream honestly.Okay, so I did originally try and read this a couple of years ago and I couldn't get into it? This time I picked it up and read The Whole Thing in two days and now I basically...

"Cinder" got on to my TBR pile because I gave in to the hype. Everyone said it was fun. So I bought but didn't read it because, well it's a retelling of Cinderella. It's an affirmation of the Patriarchy. Handsome Prince rescues poor-but-worthy girl. In space! How exciting could that be? ...

I thought the step mother in the original was horrid. Geez Adri's a bitch.Is the dr supposed to be the fairy godmother? Every time a new character was introduced I kept trying to assign them a role from the original story. I would like to know why cyborgs are looked upon with such contempt. If...

I was constantly asking myself if the author expected me to already know and was setting up a subversion, only to be disappointed by the most likely twist possible in the end. Other than that, Cinder hersel...

I decided to re-read the Lunar Chronicles because it is one of my favourite series ever. And I still love it as much as the first time I read it. I fell in love with this story and its characters all over again. If you have never read this series I totally recommend it to you. If you love sci-fi a...

I'm divided on this one. I liked the writing. I liked the stab at representation and consent issues. New takes of old tales are always an interest to me, and the sci-fi slant is just more win. I could not get over Earland. On his own, he undermines most of the good bits about body-autonomy, cons...

First things first, the concept is pure genius. Turning the childhood classic tale of Cinderella into a modern-age, futuristic story that not just young teens might enjoy, but by everyone, too. Putting that big of a twist on such a simple story, Marissa Meyer definitely did a great job. Can’t wait t...

The Lunar Chronicles have become very popular as of late, and I finally picked up Cinder, and boy was I impressed. I have seen a few novels that mix-up the classic tale, the real one, like In a Glass Grimly, which is a very good book, but a book for younger kids. I've also seem some that change the ...
