Characters:Linh Cinder,Prince Kaito,Queen Levana,Iko,Adri etc
Cinder is a futuristic Sci-Fi story set in New Beijing where Cyborgs exists and Lunars (the people who live on Moon) are almost at a brink of war with humans.The story is the retelling of the famous children’s tale, Cinderella, with shocking plottwists which will blow your mind away.
Okay so, Cinder is a cyborg in a much hated cyborg place in New Beijing.She’s a mechanic and lives with her cruel stepmother and two stepsisters, her life is by far, as ordinary as it can get, but when Prince Kaito, the sovereign of New Beijing brings his damaged cyborg Naisi to Cinder to repair it, its then her life changes.
So lets talk a bit about her surroundings first, There’s a deadly plague going around which, if anyone catches, will die, and there’s no cure to it, and on top of that, the Lunars’ ( the much hated,cruel race which lives on moon) Queen is coming on earth with a shocking proposition, to marry Prince Kaito and become the princess (and the future queen) of New Beijing.Meanwhile Cinder’s life is shattered when its discovered that one of her stepsister falls fatally ill from the plague , and the suspicion goes on Cinder.
Cinder is pretty much sent as a sacrifice to Royal Laboratories, which specifically asked for Cyborg volunteers to find a cure for the deadly plague, from then, shocking discoveries are made about Cinder, and her dark past, and its revealed that Cinder by no means is a normal cyborg, she is far more special.
When Queen Levana comes to earth, and bring her cruel rule and magic to earth, with her proposition, no one knows why, yet her plans look far more sinister and dark.She claimed to get the magical cure for plague, but at what price?
When Cinder realizes the Lunars’ plans, she realizes that she has a far greater part to play in it,soon she is forced in a intergalactic war, in which she must chose sides, deal with betrayals, loyalties and forbidden love,and make her choice which could mean the life or death for the people on earth.
I’d like to add a personal note here: Cinder is a really strong female lead, she has no time for stupid stuff and most of all, doesnt want to make you shake her shoulders in disappointment.She is the heroin I look forward to read about in books, she’s like the perfect blend of everything, most of all, she deals with her ‘burdens’ very well.Also, there’s a lot going on in the book, its not like, one storyline, its like jumble of things thrown together, which spans over four books.I was frankly disappointed that she was not the lead in Scarlet (the second book) but she does appear, over all, this book deserves so much more recognition than it got.
don’t like, less romance, witty sarcastic characters and too much…going on? then nope, this series not for you!
If you like swoon worthy characters, the perfect mix of betrayal,romance,and royalties plus inter-galactic wars, PICK THIS BOOK UP,LIKE NOW
(ps) the second book has bits of Cinder in them, Scarlet is a retold story of Red Riding Hood, so if you like consistent story leads, this book might disappoint you
Rating-5 freakin’ stars
a tiny bit of look at Cinder and Kai’s relationship:
“Kai cleared his throat. Stood straighter. “I assume you are going to the ball?”
“I-I don’t know. I mean, no. No, I’m sorry, I’m not going to the ball.”
Kai drew back, confused. “Oh well… but… maybe you would change your mind? Because I am, you know.”
“Not bragging,” he said quickly. “Just a fact.”
I love this book so much
I will be renovating the blog, please bear with me,
(no more spamming sorry)
What a gorgeous cover!
Characters: Maxon Shreave,America Singer,King Clarkson,Queen Amberly,Celeste,Aspen ledger etc
We were left last year with America almost getiing evicted from the Selection by King Clarkson, but at the end, Maxon saved her, the cost of it? America lost Maxon’s trust and now she is no more the ‘One’ for Maxon, In the middle of Aspen’s growing advances and the threat to Illea and the Royal family itself, America finds herself lost, but decides to continue to fight for Maxon in the end.
First of all, The One blew me away, honestly, I had not expected so much from this book, I was skeptical because they only had about one book to solve the whole loose ends, and the book doesn’t have much that much pages.
The One starts with America in the Great room, learning another princess stuff, when they are attacked by the rebels, although everyone is safe at the end, the increase in the attacks are worrying.The rebels want Selection to finish, and they will do anything to make that happen.However this is not the top of America’s worries yet, her main worry is the villainous king, Maxon’s father, who wants her evicted and gone forever Maxon’s life.As if this was not enough, there is a new threat, and it could destroy the whole Illea and America herself.
The story progressively gets depressing, there were some light moments but they were more dominated by darker ones.America’s life gets so complicated, and I honestly can’t believe that she didn’t break down badly (although she did sometimes, but because of the plot twists). The thing is that America becomes more stronger and stronger and fights against it, against her heartbreaks, the political deceptions and the looming threat against her and Maxon and becomes the nations’ favorite, and ultimately finds her own happy ending.
I must say, Good Job, Kiera!.
(ps.) The character developments were so good, I am so proud of Maxon and America!
Don’t like love triangles, competition or happy endings? skip this book unfortunately.
If you have read the earlier books in this series and loved the books,and the class they had, then you will love it!
I know many people were asking this so wanna know who does America end up with?

“Waiting On”Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.I am so excited to have finally joined this thing!
There are so may wonderful upcoming books but,
The book I cannot absolutely wait for is:
Goodreads Synopsis for Allegiant is:
One choice will define you.
What if your whole world was a lie?
What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything?
What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected?
The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.
But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.
Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

Characters:Cammie,Zach,Bex,Liz,Macey,Rachel Morgan,Joe Solomon etc
So,Cammie is back again,for another year at Gallagher Academy-The best school in the world for spies
Cammie is all set for a normal normal year, but then something mysterious happens to the east-wing of the academy,which causes the students to be forbidden to go in that area.
Soon Cammie and her friends set upon discovering the secret hidden behind the east wing and find Blackthorne
Blackthorne is boys School for Spies (just like Gallagher Academy) and this year, the boys and the girls have to study together.
Then comes in Zachary Goode ( Zach) The mysterious,enigmatic,hot boy who seems to understand Cammie.He is charming and a boy trouble which Cammie does not want!
But when dire situation arrives and one of the Gallagher staff betrays the Academy, will Cammie be able keep away her distrust,and work with the guys?
Off the records,this book is way better than the first one! I did not really like Josh and with Zach replacing him,I was totally happy.
Zach is wow! I love the mystery surrounding that guy.He is not a weak link like Josh, Infact he is someone who can match Cammie.
Overall,it was a great book and I can’t wait for the third!
Trust. We stake our lives on it, but it’s a subject that not even the Gallagher Academy can teach. When do you let your guard down? Who do you let in? And I knew at that moment, as I sat beside my mother, bathing in the warm spring light, that those were the questions a good spy never stops asking.
WARNING:Those who don’t like mysterious guys,lots of romance,spy work and bits of humor.Sorry!
If you like heart warming stories,sweet stories about teenage and yes,spies then read this series!
