Shelf Control: Cinder

This is a feature from Bookshelf Fantasies

In this feature, you're supposed to discuss a book that you want to read that you already own. I've got plenty of those so I thought I'd join in this week!

 Shelves final

My pick this week is Cinder by Marissa Meyer.


 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.

How I got it:

I bought it off of Amazon! It was on sale.

When I got it:

I got it approximately 2 years ago

Why I want to read it:

It seems like a really unique book and the average rating on Goodreads (4.14 stars out of 5 as of 8.10.2016)  has me wondering what makes this book so awesome to so many people! With a high rating like that, how could I resist giving this one a try?
