Cinder is about a teen who lives in a world where there is a kind called “Lunar”. They are aliens that come from the moon ruling under Queen Levana, who threatens to destroy the Earth if Prince Kai of New Beijing doesn’t marry her. For a living, Cinder is a talented mechanic, but she’s only good at fixing things because she’s a cyborg! Doomed to life with her cruel and harsh step-mother and step-sisters, she’s forced to do whatever work her step-mother wants her to do otherwise she will be thrown on the streets. A deadly plague looms on the streets of Beijing and threatens to take the life of Cinder’s only step-sister who doesn’t care that she’s part robot. Cinder finds out that she is immune to the plague, so she is helping the research team find a cure so she can help save her step-sister, Peony. The Lunars have powers to make them look beautiful than they actually are. Their true beauty can only be seen by a mirror and a Lunar. Cinder meets the handsome, kind Prince Kai when he needs Cinder’s services to fix an android. They begin to warm up to each other finding friendship in hard times. Cinder’s past before she became a cyborg remains a mystery to her. Throughout the book, Cinder begins to learn more about her past and who she once was. And how to answer the question of her future.
Cinder is an amazing read and I really enjoyed reading it and can’t wait for the second book “Scarlet” to come out in Febuary. I also, liked how the author foreshadowed about Cinder’s past throughout the book, letting the readers putting the pieces together about Cinder for themselves. Also, the emotional attachment was PERFECT in this book and made me cry so don’t worry if a tear or two drops out while reading this book! It was a very entertaining twist on the famous Cinderella story we all know and love.
I give “Cinder’ an exceeding 5/5 stars!! ^o^ It is definitely on the must read list.

Review of the book “Cinder” written by Vaidehee
Now I’m not talking about the type of brain freeze you get when you race to see who can eat the most ice cream at once! Or when your brain gets slurpee streams coming through! No not at all!! This brain freeze can take more than just a few minutes to cool down!! Can you guess what I am talking about??? :0 Some people call it a brain freeze others name it writer’s block! Whatever you call it the symptoms are the same, your brain stopped turning its wheels!! One minute you have this great idea burning a hole in the side of your head and the next minute its gone like a fast tornado! Or your staring at the loose leaf that stares right back with its beady eyes and then POOF all of those brilliant ideas decide to pack what they can and run away!! Nooo!! Is the common response, but what can we do? 😀 Not like there is an undo button and mouse that we can just click and get back our ideas( I WISH)! Now we can’t get rid of brain freezes permanently so lets work around it!! Now what we humans need is an “Idea Generator.” Something that takes our extra brian’s ideas and stores them untill we run into a frustrating brain freeze. Then the generator puts one of our own ideas in front of us and it’s like that writer’s block NEVER existed!! Would that not be the utmost miracle!!
Now if only I could find the materials to build this…………………………. ^o^

If you don’t enjoy even one thing about life, this blog isn’t for you! Hello and welcome to my blog!!!!!! 😀 First of all let me introduce myself. I love to read, write, draw and talk. Some of my favorite books and series are “The Mother Daughter Book Club”, ‘Divergent” and “Insurgent”, “Cinder” (second book coming out this February can’t wait :0), “The Hunger Games”, “Throwaway Daughter” and dozens more. One unique style of books I love are manga you may have heard of it before. Manga are Japanese books in a comic form, you read it right to left and many manga’s have a T.V show called anime to go with it. I only started reading them this summer but so far I am reading “Vampire Knight” and “Full Metal Alchemist Botherhood”( started this week.)^o^ and I think they are both amazing. 😉 Another one of my hobbies is writing, I love everything about it. I write short stories, non-fiction articles and more( might me posting some…………);)
It might be when you scored the winning goal for the hockey tournament, or you just achieved a 92% on something you worked really hard on. It could be anything but it’s that momement when you scream “I love life!!!!!!” Our lives are full of different and unique experiences and sometimes were so busy that we don’t know what’s going on around us (happens to me) 😀 So through this blog I want to be able to find ingredients that will enhance my life, like a recipe for the best chocolate cake on earth. 🙂 I am going to be posting about books, school, videos, writing pieces, inspirations and more…. -_- And my list for life which will keep growing forever. ;D Once again welcome to my blog and thank you for taking the time to look at it and I love to hear your thoughts on it!!!!!!!! ^o^ Good bye for now…………..
P.S- I also have another blog that I share, called ramblingsaboutbooks.wordpress.com. So while you’re at give this one a look too!
