2014 book 282

Marissa Meyer's Cinder
I have seriously checked this out of the library four times and only just now got around to reading it. It was pretty good! The writing is a bit awkward at times, and the plot is SUPER OBVIOUS, but the conceit--Cinderella as a mechanic/cyborg in far-future China--is interesting, and things move along at a good pace, and I was definitely emotionally invested in some androids. This is the first in a series that seems like it's bringing in a bunch of fairy tales (I'm pretty sure there were references to Snow White and Rapunzel) and the library has them all as e-books, so I'll probably read them eventually. :) B/B+.
