Megan (bookworm_booklover) | 170 comments Just finished this one and I have to admit I thought it was a bit of a letdown. I don't really know what I was expecting, it had some neat ideas but it didn't really incite any emotion in me. I left it kind of neutral.

Did anyone else read this? What were your thoughts?


Silvia Turcios | 304 comments I read Cinder last year and LOVED IT! I am really sorry that you didn't enjoyed so much. When I started to read it I didn't have any expectations at all "A cyborg cinderella? ugh!" I thought, but I read it just because a challenge. The story was terribly predictable. but it was so sweet that I couldn't avoid to love it :-)

Megan (bookworm_booklover) | 170 comments That's why I was so surprised! I had seen tons of people gushing over it! At any rate I plan to pick up the next one just to see if it does more for me .

Erika Quinonez | 18 comments I didnt read this particular book for the challenge, but I did read it a few months ago. I love this series! Cinder is my favorite book so far. I wish it could have done more for you! I'm currently at the end of Cress. Scarlet is my least favorite. if you didnt like the first one you may not be too thrilled with the second. Who knows, maybe we'll be opposites and you'll love the second book!

Brittany (gamerkiti) I've been meaning to get around to reading this book for ages now...and it's actually on my bookshelf at home. I just haven't really felt interested in it, but I've got it listed for next years challenge!!

Francesca | 391 comments I have the whole series down for my challenge next year. I'm somewhat hesitant because I don't tend to enjoy a lot of YA series' that much as I find a lot of them to be a bit too focused on love interests/love triangles and a bit too samey and predictable for my tastes. However, I've heard a lot of good things about this series and the basic premise has me interested. Plus I love fairy tale re-telling's and adaptations so hopefully that should help to keep my interest and possibly make me enjoy it more.

Brittany (gamerkiti) I've got the series down too Francesca! (including some of the novellas!) I'm fairly certain a few others have the series listed as well so we should have a really good discussion going next year!!

Francesca | 391 comments Ooh, I'm glad I'm not alone then! I kept seeing everyone talking about it and was wondering if I was the last person here to read it. Haha! I have the novella 'Fairest' down on my list too, the rest I may leave until after I finish the series and see how I feel.
