This is my now-monthly Book Spotlight featuring my favourite book of the month. I am so sorry about the lateness of this post, I was certain I had published it! Anyway, it's been sitting, completely finished but unpublished in my posts for weeks. Anways, in the month of May, my favourite book I read was...
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.
I loved Cinder! The book resembled and followed the fairytale, but Meyer wasn't afraid to stray from the original story and add in her own unique elements. I really loved how everything tied together at the end. The characters were interesting and well-described, and I loved the author's writing style. For someone who rarely buys books, it is very high praise for me to say-- Go out and buy this book now!
My rating: 5/5 stars.
I recommend this book to pretty much anyone. It has a little bit of everything! If you enjoy unique spins on fairytales and dystopia novels, I recommend checking this book out. The only people I wouldn't suggest this for is anyone who isn't a big fan of YA books.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Like last month's book spotlight, this novel is the author's debut, so check it out. Thanks for reading!
