Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer



Let me first start out by saying you had me at Cinderella…then it was downhill from there.


I had high hope for the Lunar Chronicles series since it was highly recommended to me by several friends, amazon, and Goodreads. After reading this book I found 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 by beautiful prose, but I also did not expect it to be so painfully boring. Which it was.


I wanted more. Just when the story really got going it ended. I felt like there was more to tell but the author ran out of pages so she just ended the book. It wasn’t even in a cliffhanger way…it just ended…sorry there isn’t any more.


Needless to say I will not be reading the rest of these books.


Goodreads description

Forbidden romance.

A deadly plague.

Earth’s fate hinges on one girl . . .

CINDER, a gifted mechanic in New Beijing, is also a cyborg. She’s reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s sudden illness. But when her life becomes entwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she finds herself at the centre of a violent struggle between the desires of an evil queen – and a dangerous temptation.

Cinder is caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal. Now she must uncover secrets about her mysterious past in order to protect Earth’s future.

This is not the fairy tale you remember. But it’s one you won’t forget.
