    Without this book, I’d never thought I could enjoy Sci-fi books. I really appreciate the twist on the original story and Meyer managed to capture the fairytale-ish feeling despite the completely different world. The characters are great. Wait ’till you read Scarlet! :D

    Really need to pick this up soon. I’ve read a lot of rave reviews and the fact that it reminds you of Sailormoon has me sold! Plus, I’m a sucker for a fictional prince. Great review!

    I have this, and I have yet to read it. I really, really need to — everyone has great things to say about it. And now I have the Sailor Moon theme song stuck in my head too … not helpful.

    I really enjoyed this one as well! I loved how Meyer was able to stay true to the Cinderalla story all while completely making it her own thing. Plus: cyborgs are awesome. Hopefully you’ll like book 2 just as much! :)

    Excuse me??? I’m totally sold after reading that Cinder has a built-in lie detector. That’s like SUPER awesome but I imagine it’d hurt to discover if your best friend of maybe 20 years is lying to you on something important. Well, one can’t have everything eh! I’ll be sure to pick Cinder up soon! ;D
