Still on My Mind #4

Still on My Mind is a weekly meme, featured on Thursday, started by Haley over at Ya-Aholic, where you discuss a book you've either recently read, or read over the past few years, that's still on your mind.


This week's book I read back in February, right before I headed to Long Beach for the Passion & Prose Conference.  
I actually ate lunch right next to this author on the day, and got to talk to her about amazing book, shortly after I had read it! She was really sweet, and even wrote a super sweet message into my beautiful Hardcover copy of the book...



Cinder (Review HERE) by Marissa Meyer is 100% one of my favorite novels released this year!  It was original (when it comes to a Cinderella story), had great characters, kept me hooked throughout the entire thing, and was an all around great read!

If you're one of the few people whose missed this great page turner, here's the description 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.

I definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone! :)
