Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Oh my god. I loved this book. I am not sure what other way to put it; it is just so so amazing. And a must read. A must. The story is so easy to fall in love with, kind of like Cinderella, only better (A) And much more.. creepy.

I loved Cinder. Wasn't sure at first, with her not being entirely human, but I loved her even still. She was amazing. Strong, which she had to be, living with those horrible people. But she was also kind, and loving. And funny. A perfect leading character :)

Prince Kai I fell in love with right away. I loved that we got a few chapters from his POV, although I do wish there had been more. Loved everything about him. Although I was kind of mad at him near the end. A little bit. But he is so kind, and caring, and good looking ;D

I also really loved Iko and Peony. But sigh. Sad and mad about what happened to them.. But they are amazing characters :D I wasn't sure at first if I liked the doctor, but near the end I decided that I did. He wasn't so bad. But oh, I hated Adri and Pearl. Such evil people. Which you will see for yourself when you read it ;)

I loved the world it was set in. Fell in love with it easily and quite fast. Don't want to say too much, because that would be spoilery. I just really loved everything about the place, and I loved (almost) everything that happened. I hated the.. uhm, evil Queen. Which I won't talk about, because of spoilers. But yeah, she is evil. So evil.

The plot is amazing. And I can not wait to figure out what will happen next. It ended on kind of a huge cliffhanger, which I hate, but it did leave me wanting for more ;) Just sad it is still a whole year until the next one :p I hate waiting.

Only downside: Wish it was longer. Also wished there were more romance :D There was some, and lots of cute flirting, but oh, I wish wish wish there would have been more. There must be more in the next book. Right? Oh please, let there be :) This book had no triangle, and there better not be one later on :p Hih.

Anyway, this book is a must read, and you better buy it! :)
<3 you won't regret it.
