Book Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Book Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Books, Reading, Reviews 1 ★★★★½

Holy amazing book, Batman. I absolutely loved Cinder. It’s a science-fictiony retooling of Cinderella, complete with a downtrodden cyborg, a terrible plague, a handsome prince, and an evil queen from the Moon. I mean, how could this story not be awesome with a description like that? The best fairy tale… Read more »

Book Review: Abandon by Meg Cabot

Books, Reading, Reviews 4 ★★

  I loved Greek mythology when I was a teen. (Before you ask: Yes, I was a fan of Xena.) My copy of Edith Hamilton literally fell apart. Now that I think about it, these tales are a great gateway into the world of fantasy literature. I’ve heard so many… Read more »

Review: Drought by Pam Bachorz

Books, Reading, Reviews 0 ★★★

The product description gives too much of the story away; I am glad I didn’t read it before I read the review copy. Ruby is 200 years old and just reaching adolescence. That sounds like Hell to me, but to the Congregants it is a miracle. Their savior, Otto, had… Read more »
