Cinder - Marissa Meyer I didn't expect to like this story as much as I did. I appreciate how the main character isn't dopey or lovestruck. She's strong and has a lot of heart. I got into the whole sci-fi element also. I think I expected this to resemble Cinderella more, but the similarities aren't to do with the actual storyline that much. It kind of gave me a Star Wars -ish feel. I'll continue for sure.
