Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

by Marissa Meyer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was just Fun!! 
   Cinderella would be Proud!!!

Inventive and Invigorating. 
Surprisingly original and refreshing for a fairy tale retelling!

I really did love this story.

 Even if the world building fell short, just a tiny bit, it certainly didn't take any thing away from the awesomeness of the story :) I loved all the characters, the bad ones, the sick ones, the androids and even the stepsisters.

I especially loved Cinder's character. Even with grease stained clothes and cyborg parts. She is just a teenage girl, who's witty and smart, and a highly skillful mechanic. She faces strenuous obstacles like a fatal plague, a persistent Prince and an unpleasant Stepmother. All she wants to do is run away from it all but she can't.....
Not after what she has just found out!

Her world is on the brink of an Intergalactic war with the Lunars. Cinder is caught in the middle of it all and we won't know what will happen because of the bloody cliffhanger!

That's okay! hahaha I have the next book, which I've already started reading
 (and love so far)
That's one good reason why I'm glad it took me so long to read this series. Now I don't have to wait for the next... 
OH WAIT!!!!!
There's one more book. "Winter" and it doesn't come out til next year.

I guess I'll just try and read the rest of Scarlet and Cress really
Reeeaaalllyyy sllloooowwwwwwlllyyy....

But seriously, If you haven't read this book yet, I highly recommend that you do! A simply spectacular story!! And if you get the chance, listen to it on audio. I listened to it while driving in my car. Half the time I found myself parked in my driveway after running errands just listening away. 

It's extremely entertaining!!!

Also check out Glitches

A novella by Marissa Meyer giving a glimpse into Cinder's life where she is adjusting to being a Cyborg and a new life with her evil Stepmother & Stepsisters.

  1. Oh man! I need to get to this series. I have been staring at it for YEARS and I just need to do it! Thanks for your awesome insight! Have a great day!


    1. I was hesitant about this series for awhile. I always saw it circling around goodreads but it wasn't until I started blogging a couple months ago when I really started to take an interest. So I did a poll where I let fellow readers choose a book out of 3, that I should read. It was between Cinder, Throne of Glass and Days of Blood & Starlight. Cinder won hands down!
      SO GLAD I finally read it! I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! xoxo

  2. Yippee! I am so glad you loved it! I really wish I read slower too since I cannot wait until Winter comes out!

  4. Gah! I LOVE this series like crazy! I can't stand the wait for Winter. I'm so glad you enjoyed this book :D

  5. Love this series! Each book just gets better and better, and all the characters are so adorable/badass/generally awesome :) I hope you enjoy the rest of it!

    1. Oh yea, I'm loving Scarlet right now. It's cool how Meyer's changed it up, for being a sequel she doesn't really stick to just Cinder's storyline.
      Thanks for stopping by Kritika! Xoxox

  6. Yeah! Michelle! So glad you liked this as much as you did! It's such a great series, isn't it? I think Cinder was my least favorite of the series so far (and I'm saying that loosely because it was still full of awesomeness!), but Scarlet was definitely my favorite by a longshot, so I'm really interested in seeing what you think of it!

    As always, brilliant review and thanks for sharing! <3 I'm loving the GIFs by the way! :D

  7. What a fun review Darlin', I loved it! I'm so glad you enjoyed Cinder. What did you think of Iko? She's probably my most favourite secondary character ever! well, maybe lol. But I thought she was great =D There is one more novella to fill the waiting gap called The Little Android. It was awesome too. Marissa Meyer is a genius.

  8. I'm happy you loved Cinder! YAY!
    For me Scarlet is my favourite of the three so far. But they are all just so fantastic! :D

  9. If I would just stop blogging I could finish the book I am on and start reading Cinder!

    1. It took me a while to read Cinder but I am so happy that I finally did! It was so refreshing to read such a fun, unique, fast pace book! I'm so ready to get into this series, like every one else. Better to be late than never have read it

  10. I really, really love Cinder. <3 So happy that you did too :) Great review sweetie. Fingers crossed that you will love Scarlet and Cress as well :D *Cress is my favorite* <3
