Bright and funny? Kick-ass addictive characters? A world where you can feel the heat radiating off the futuristic tarmac? Welcome to one of my favourite reads – ‘Cinder‘, Book 1 in the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. Yee-ha!
This got on my TBR list after a Penguin Teen Australia event. Once I got past the cover I was hooked – to both this story, and the entire series.
I still haven’t got the book-hook out of the side of my mouth. Did I mention I love this series?
I’m not alone.
So… what works so well?
- Characters – strong, funny, imperfect
- Romance – right from the start
- Happy feel
