 People, I am SO ridiculously excited about my new blog design by the fabulous Lucille at Poppies Blooming. Excited to the point that I am beginning to wonder about my own mental stability...fellow book bloggers, I think y'all will understand this.


That means it's GIVEAWAY TIME!


 Summary: 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. 

 Here's the deal: I didn't want to read this when it came out. I was of the opinion that cyborgs and I wouldn't get along. I just couldn't imagine relating to a cyborg heroine. I think I had something like The Terminator in mind.
So wrong! Cinder is smart, resourceful, determined, tough with just enough vulnerability and I LOVED her. I rooted for her throughout the book and I can't wait for the sequel.

*People, this has nothing to do with anything about the Giveaway, but I have to tell y'all:
 Marissa Meyer retweeted this Giveaway and THEN tweeted me @sarahsyablog...and I died of joy overload. That is all*

How to enter? Fill out the Rafflecopter below! a Rafflecopter giveaway

 Giveaway runs until November 13. 
**US Entrants Only...I'm sorry, my international peeps. I'll figure out something to do that includes y'all soon, I promise! **



  1. Great giveaway, I've been wanting to read this one for a while! SOunds great!

  2. It really was great. Since it's a fairy tale retelling, there are some major plot points you know going in will be there and what will happen. But it's when and how you get to those familiar bits of the fairy tale that make it fun. Plus all the extra stuff and world-building that really launches the Cinderella story into a whole new direction.

  3. I love this book! Your design looks amazing too!

    1. Thank you, Kathryn! :) Cinder was so good, wasn't it? I love when I don't think I'll really enjoy a book and then I end up completely enchanted by it.

  4. I already have this book, so no need to enter me. BUT, I did want to say Congrats on the 100 Followers -- we've all found a GREAT blog to enjoy :) Also, I love the design. It's fun, but sophisticated, too. Very nice!

    1. Why, thank you, Susan!! :) I couldn't be happier with my blog design. And I'm having so much fun with book blogging. Got my first ARC to review this week. I *might* have done a little happy dance when I opened the mailbox. ;)

  5. Oooohhh, I LOVE your new design! My favorite colors, too! :) Congratulations on 100 followers AND your first ARC! I might have done a happy dance when I got my first one, too. ;)
