Review of CINDER
I loved this book so much. I was a little nervous going into because it is a retelling of Cinderella and retellings can be predictable. But this book was amazing! All the obvious Cinderella references were there PLUS all these cool new elements! A cyborg! Sounds stupid I know but it was crazy good!
I loved the characters, especially Cinder who is a really strong character and dreamy prince Kai of course. I can’t believe how long I waited to read this book! I would recommend it to everyone!! Can’t wait for the next ones!
