Reviews for Cinder
Review from Blkosiner's Book Blog
Did not finish:
Stopped at page 57, chapter 8
The beginning didn't grab me like I wanted. I can't put my finger on it exactly because it immediately shows us something unique about the world of cyborgs with Cinder taking off her foot. I put it down after four pages, and wandered around the house. But since I had read SO many good reviews about it, and it was voted by over half of the votes of what I should read next, I decided I would try to get through a few more chapters.
When we met the prince though, and the first talk about the draft and the plague was mentioned, I got into it a little bit more. But ultimately, I still didn't want to pick it back up when I stopped, and although Cinder was brave and talented, a character that I would normally adore, I just felt indifferent about what happened.
So, I didn't hate it but I just was ready to move on before I finished/ by Brandi Kosiner

Review originally posted on my blog, http://michelleshoutsrandom.blogspot.com/2012/06/book-review-cinder-by-marissa-meyer.html
Cinderella. Re-told Cinderella with dytopian-sci-fi twist. I HAVE TO READ THIS.
Cyborg Cinderella. Not what I expected. Scared for the outcome. NO.
Read reviews from Goodreads and recommended by a book blogger. NOTHING CAN STOP ME FROM READING IT NOW.
I have to be honest, I've been scared for this book because Marissa Meyer turned Cinderella (my all-time fave fairytale) into a cyborg. I don't know what or how will be the turn of events and over-all outcome of the book, so I had second thoughts in reading this.
But then a book blogger recommended me this when I asked her for book for 2012, sci-fi. I gave it a try and read it. And I TOTALLY LOVED IT.
I learned to love Cinder being a cyborg. I love the story, and even if Cinder doesn't really have a fairy godmother here and she doesn't looked a princess at all when she came into the ball, Marissa Meyer made it all special. I love the combination of dystopian, sci-fi, fantasy, with a little thriller and mystery on it and the romance.
The book just proves that even though something or someone is not perfect, they are the ones that are most appreciated, loved and real. Because sometimes, perfect is not real; it's scary. I loved every single detail on this book, and so far, I didn't see any flaws or negative about this. I'm craving for the next book, Scarlet (which who doesn't have a cover yet, will feature Cinder and Little Red Riding Hood that will take place in France, and will be released--oh, no. So far!--in 5th of February 2013!). I also found out in Goodreads that Lunar Chronicles will be having four books (including Cinder)! I'm so excited for all the books though each will be released not until after a year. by Michelle Sedeño
