Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Summary from Goodreads:
Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, the 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.

This book really had me hooked for the first several chapters but I started to lose interest. Reading this book was like being on a roller coaster, it was up and down. 

I really liked the setting this book and it was interesting to read.
I immediately like Cinder. She is strong and selfless and that made her likable in my books. I love how she stands up to her stepmother on several occasions and it made Cinder feel more real to me.

Marissa Meyer's writing style is very intriguing and she described everything just enough to get a feel for what was happening and how Cinder felt. I found myself feeling the same emotions as Cinder did at certain points of the book.

Prince Kai was an interesting character but I'm not entirely sure if I like him or not. However, I have been told that I tend to not like the nice characters in books. You may love Kai but I'm not sure about him. I loved Iko but she wasn't in it as much as I would have liked to.

I love that there is 'people' living on the moon. They are called Lunars. Wouldn't you like to live on the moon? I would!

Overall I loved the book! I really think that you should read it!
