My quote for this week comes from Cinder by Marissa Meyer, pg 273.
She departed from the room like a feather, as if nothing at all had happened, her entourage falling into step behind her. Only when the guards’ clopping feet had drifted down the halls did Kai slump into the nearest seat, head hanging over his knees.
I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Cinder, but decided to finally pluck it off my bookshelf and read it. While it did start a bit slow for me, it picked up really quick and I was hooked in no time. It’s a fairytale retelling of Cinderella, but with some major twists–cyborgs, aliens and a futuristic setting. I have to say, I really loved Meyer’s worldbuilding. Cinder, the main character, was a spunky character who never gave up despite everything being against her. This was quite a quick read – mostly since I enjoyed it so much. The ending was unexpected and left me wanting book 2. I highly recommend this book.
