Cinder (#1 The Lunar Chronicles) by Marissa Meyer – Book Review

I just finished Cinder by Marissa Meyer And. I. LOVED. IT!!

Alright, first we have to talk about the BEAUTIFUL COVER!!!!!

I just want to frame this and put it on my wall! ❀ It’s just so Goy-jussss!

And look at the Thailand edition!

Title: Cinder

Pages: 390
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.

Cinder is the first volume in The Lunar Chronicles series by Marissa Meyer. Guys, I could hardly put this book down, which was kinda bad because I was babysitting the day I was reading it so I had to make myself to put it down to keep track of the kids “:D

Cinder is a cyborg! Like…WOW That is so cool!! She’s a mechanic, the best in New Beijing. Everyone comes to her toΒ  fix their broken devices, and the like.
She’s 16, and her best friend is an android named Iko. Iko is so awesomeeeee! I just love her! She’s such a sweet and funny robot x) I just wanted to hug her like..

BTW, I ship Iko and Baymax!! ❀ Their ship name could be Bayko XD

Cinder was an awesome character. She’s strong, and devoted. She goes through so much with her evil step mother always making her work, and calling her names, treating her like garbage. Cinder meets Prince Kaito (Kai) and suddenly, her younger sisters mad crush on him no longer seems silly. But she’s a cyborg, and he’s a prince! Besides, how/why would he even notice her? A mechanic, a cyborg…..but wait…there’s a secret about her….. a secret even she can’t believe. When the Lunar Queen Levana comes to earth, causing trouble among the earthens, will accepting who she is save the world?! Quite possibly. OK there you go I just went all synopsis-y on you. πŸ˜€ Basically this is my new favorite book. Go. Read. It. SO WE CAN FANGIRL TOGETHER!!!!

Once I finished the book I threw it at my sister (literally) and commanded her to read it, and I watched her as she read the whole first chapter. I was all like:

I completely ship Cinder and Kai. Kai is so sweet and funny! And Cinder is so serious yet sarcastic. They make a great match in my opinion


There was a part that I was kinda like “ehh”
Iko says something to the effect of “Do you think Prince Kai’s android has ever seen him in the nude?” And I was like “Really Iko?! Watch your mouth!”
Also d*mn and dammit are used a few times.

I give Cinder 5 out of 5 hearts because I seriously fell in love with it. AND I NEED THE NEXT BOOK NOWWWW.

Thanks for stopping by! OffΒ  to the library…..
