Read: February 6th – 8th
My Rating: 5 Stars
I don’t know why I didn’t pick this novel up sooner! It was awesome!
I loved that it was split into “Books” that had quotes from the original fairy tale…and also grew a certain hunch as the story progressed ;). I also loved that it was a sci-fi (though it also had fantasy vibes for me) set primarily in a futuristic Beijing, known now as New Beijing, and also a few of the names like Peony, and Kaito(or Kai), and Cinder herself as well as her android’s name, Iko
As I continued through the story, I developed a soft spot for Cinder as well as Iko – and felt sorry for her , as well as anger at the horrid treatment she receives at the hands of her stepmother and other stepsister Pearl (though, I’d say I hate Pearl more than Adri), and inwardly cheered at every triumph she had.
I cannot wait to pick up the next book!
Stay true to yourself, and don’t ever let anyone deter you from the course you wish to take.
Love you guys
