Well, it's just an amazing series written by Marissa Meyer. :3 And so far, I don't know anyone, anyone who reads it... save for my librarian. So... anyone? I just finished Cress and it was amazing. 8D Can't wait for Winter!!!!!!!!

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl.

Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.


It's a really good series!!! You should read it! At first, I was reluctant, but I gradually came to like it. And then the third book just blew me away. :33

Sounds cool! Though, for some reason it made me think of Cinderella. You know, Cinder sounds like Cinderella, stepmother, stepsister, a handsome prince. Just saying. My mind works in mysterious ways. But it sounds great! I might try it sometime if I can find it at the library! Thanks for explaining it!

Anytime!! And i forgot to mention, it actually is like Cinderella on purpose. xD It's in the genre for the retelling of fairy tales so each novels follows a Disney princess, but, like, it's changed? It's kind of hard to explain, I guess. In the first book, there are the sisters, the stepmother, the ball, etc. but it's also original at the same time, with another, bigger plot going on. It's... really good. xD

I just finished Winter! I really liked this series, although it wasn't exactly one of my favorites. My favorite character is Scarlet, and I thought that even though she is Little Red Riding Hood, I think she could be Beauty and Wolf could be the Beast.
