Some of you know of the hell I went through leading up to reading this book. I won it a couple of years back. The blogger never sent it to me claiming she could't afford it... my thought was why run a giveaway then?! Any way, after pining for two years I finally broke down and spent a small fortune for a kindle copy.
It was worth every hard conversation and penny! I'm so glad I finally got to read this book. It is definitely the best fairy tale re-telling I have ever read!
I have a girl crush on Cinder. Seriously, she has it all! She's smart, tough, and someone to admire. I'm so happy this updated version of Cinderella can kick butt and take names! She has a knack for mechanical things that is uber-groovy too! Especially for Steampunk/Sci-fi fans. This story really takes Cinderella to a whole new level. I can see why so many people love the book, though it was highly predictable. That didn't ruin a thing.
I can't wait to read Scarlet! Might be time to spend a small fortune again.....
