Book Review: Cinders by Marissa Meyer

The mountains are yearning. (1)


“I don’t know. I don’t actually remember anything from before the surgery.”

His eyebrows rose, his blue eyes sucking in all the light of the room. “The cybernetic operation?”

“No, the sex change.”

The doctor’s smile faltered.

“I’m joking.”
― Marissa Meyer, Cinder


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.

My Thoughts.

I absolutely adored this book. I love the YA genre, I have been dedicated to reading this genre for about 6 months. It wasn’t something I’d normally pick up but I am so glad I did, it was such a brilliant read.

It was such a brilliant, thought provoking book and I am so excited to continue reading the series. Marissa Meyer’s writing is beautiful, I just ate the words up. I was even more excited when I found out she uses wattpad haha.

I would recommend this series to everyone, even if you don’t usually read YA fiction, this book is so good and so intoxicating.

I give it 5 out of 5 stars because it was simply brilliant and I recommend you all stop what you’re doing and go read it now!

    That quote at the beginning is hilarious! I’ve been meaning to get around to reading this book, but for some reason I’ve been prolonging it – until this very moment. Awesome thoughts 🙂
