Synopsis:

A teen escapes to a boarding school abroad and falls for a Korean pop star in this fun and fresh romantic novel in the vein of Anna and the French Kiss.

Grace Wilde is running—from the multi-million dollar mansion her record producer father bought, the famous older brother who’s topped the country music charts five years in a row, and the mother who blames her for her brother’s breakdown. Grace escapes to the farthest place from home she can think of, a boarding school in Korea, hoping for a fresh start.

She wants nothing to do with music, but when her roommate Sophie’s twin brother Jason turns out to be the newest Korean pop music superstar, Grace is thrust back into the world of fame. She can’t stand Jason, whose celebrity status is only outmatched by his oversized ego, but they form a tenuous alliance for the sake of her friendship with Sophie. As the months go by and Grace adjusts to her new life in Korea, even she can’t deny the sparks flying between her and the KPOP idol.

Soon, Grace realizes that her feelings for Jason threaten her promise to herself that she’ll leave behind the music industry that destroyed her family. But can Grace ignore her attraction to Jason and her undeniable pull of the music she was born to write? Sweet, fun, and romantic, this young adult novel explores what it means to experience first love and discover who you really are in the process.

OK. First I just want to say that I liked this book overall, and if you’re a lover of music, and romance you would probably like this book. Continue reading

Synopsis:

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and prevent her army from invading Earth.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s being forced to work for Queen Levana, and she’s just received orders to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is splintered. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a higher price than she’d ever expected. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing prevent her marriage to Emperor Kai, especially the cyborg mechanic. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only hope the world has.

I’m going to curl into a cocoon and stay there until Winter comes……. 😀 … 😀 …. 😀 … 😀 ….Who gets it?? XD

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
Synopsis:
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 to  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. 😀 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

THINGS I DIDN’T LIKE:

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.

5-hearts
Thanks for stopping by! Off  to the library…..
