Co- blogger- Tiffany Webb also reviewed this book on our blog and goodreads. see it here at Book- Marks The Spot (i know. we both reviewed the same book on our blog. haha. yeah. i'm weird like that.
ok, first off wow. This is by far my favorite twist EVER on Cinderella. I mean a cyborg? hell, yes. My only problem with this book is that i have to wait for the next installment in the series. I cannot believe it has taken me so long to read it. i mean it was good. I loved the characters. they were so fresh. I mean, sure the evil stepmother concept was not new, but come on, you have to admot even she was complex ad not all bad. i mean, yeah she was mostly bad... but not all bad. lol.
the characters. I genuinely loved both of the main characters in the story. Cinder was not incredibly whiny like some of the other heroines i have read about int he past. She was insecure and Kai was just so charming. haha. get it. but not in a superficial- shallow- i just met you for the first time and i love you -disney- type way. lol. If that made any sense at all. ;)
I loved Cinder's android sidekick. and i do not wish to spoil the book for anyone and if i keep goign i may spew forth spoilers. lol. but seriously, people. read this book.
It is am awesome concept. I mean, there is more to this book than a shallow love story. The love story is not shallow, i did not mean like that. i am saying that there is more to this book than just a prince and a poor girl. this book is so- for lack of a better word- awesome/cool/new/weird. and i love it.
