Waiting on Wednesday: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Hi everyone,
For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anitcipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)

  • Publication date: 1/3/2012
  • Pages: 400

  • Synopsis:
    Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a 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.

    Why I am Waiting:
    This book has such an interesting premise and I can't wait to read it. I just got an ARC through NetGalley and the audiobook for it through Macmillan Audio and I can not wait to get into the story. A retelling of Cinderella, I really want to find out how everything works out in it, especially with Cinder being a cyborg. Can't wait to dive into it. =]

    Let me know in the comments what you are waiting for this week.
