The Lunar Chronicles: Cinder By Marissa Meyer

Wasn’t sure I’d like this story when I picked it up, seeing as I never read the original fairy-tales and grew up on Disney Versions, but it turned out pretty awesome!

I got some ideas of how the rest of the series might be linked, from the hints dropped here, but I’ll have to wait and find out won’t I? Time for the next book!

Too short! Will and Jem have always seemed to have an interesting relationship in the books, and the subject of their chat was intriguing! i wish I knew the answer. 😮

Oh man. D: The feels. T-T

This one starts off with a little Mechanic Robot, and quickly tugs at the heartstrings. I just… The feels, man. D: so many.

Glitches (The Lunar Chronicles 0.5) By Marissa Meyer

Having never read Cinder, I can’t say I have much understanding of the world this short story gives a glimpse of. It fills in the usual beginnings for a retelling pretty well. All the key elements were there. I’ll just have to see where it goes from here!
