This review was my review from April 2012 on Goodreads: I didn’t know if I would actually pull this book off my “to read” shelf and onto my “reading” shelf, but I’m so glad I did. A cyborg Cinderella? Really? REALLY!!! Cinder has secrets that she didn’t know existed. It may have been a bit predictable, but there are twists and turns that weren’t expected. I was quickly attached to Cinder for her attributes…her love for Peony, understanding right from wrong, not thinking herself better than others even though she was a talented mechanic. I truly hope the story will continue.
September 2013: I have recommended this book so many times. I don’t know of one person that didn’t like it. People of all ages. Those people always ask, “When’s the next one? When’s the next one?” I love this series and I am anxiously awaiting 2 things: Meeting Marissa Meyer at Wordstock in Oct (Portland, OR) and the release of Cress on Feb 4th, 2014.
