Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

2.5 stars

Cinder cover (link to Goodreads)

While this had a cool concept (Cinderella, except she’s a cyborg in the future! And there’s a plague and a horrible queen of a Lunar colony trying to take over the earth!), I wanted more depth in just about every arena. I didn’t love the main character or her love interest, the villains were way too garden-variety evil, and none of the twists surprised me. I’ve heard the second book in the series is much better, and since this was a debut novel, maybe I’ll give it a chance, but only as an audiobook, since I can listen while I do dishes or whatever.
