Cinder - Marissa Meyer I'll add more later. While it was entertaining....it was like Wind-Up girl gone wrong. My biggest issues was the fact it's set in futuristic Asia...with hardly an Asian influence. I didn't like the world-building or the weird Lunar thing.

I love fracture fairy-tales and I'm glad for the new elements...BUUT, I don't feel like all the elements made sense. I think she could've made Cindy less accommodating to her step-mother. I really didn't like the stepmother. I mean I don't get why Cinder didn't just punch her in the face, or why she'd take all the abuse. I mean...I don't get why she was loyal...I MEAN THE WOMAN DONATED HER TO SCIENCE AGAINST HER WILL! What if that scientist Dr. Elnard was crazy?! Sigh.
