Waiting on Wednesday - Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Cinder by Marissa Meyer
January 3rd, 2012 from Feiwel & Friends

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.

In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.

Yo, I am a sucka for robots. I don't know why, but if you put the word "cyborg" in the description of anything....I go bananas! I am really looking forward to this book. The cover? Interesting to say the least and, for me, it has a more adult feel to it. I am happy that there is not a face on the cover - this one is pretty original.

  4. Interesting... I hate faces on the covers of books too. I like to imagine the characters as I read instead of having some predetermined image in my mind.

    Not sure how I feel about robots. I would give this one a try though.

  5. I'm loving all of these fairy tale retellings. And Cinderella with robots, it will be interesting to see how it turns out.

  6. I am drooling over this book. I just got Roboapocalyse in the mail about a week ago too! You should check that out if you haven't yet.

  7. Ooh I'll love to read this book. I haven't read anything with robots yet

  8. Cinder sounds so unique and different from the usual YA novel!

  9. I LOVE the idea of cyberpunking Cinderella! The cover is fantastic and I love the premise of this spin on such a well-known story trope. Definitely adding this one to my TBR pile. Thanks for the rec!


  10. Not gonna lie, I love robots too. I am on board with this one!
