YA Book Recommendation: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cyborg Cinderella. What’s not to love? It takes two of my favorite genres, fairy tale retellings and sci fi, and mashes them together. Wish I hadn’t taken so long to get around to reading it!

I loved the world building (just enough detail, but not too much), loved her multicultural(?) characters (particularly the robot friend!), loved how she incorporated the cinderella story. I am in awe of how much she accomplished in only 87,000 words (according to AR Book finder).

There was one niggling plot issue I had trouble believing, but I know why she did it and wouldn’t really know how to fix it. Didn’t detract from the book though.

Requesting the sequel now from the library!
