Reading is my passion! I'll read anything if it looks good & sounds good. I'm also a sucker for books with unique settings & I'd choose Hardcovers over E-Books any day! : ) -Empress Reece
...That's a mouthful : ) So I finally jumped on the The Lunar bandwagon. I'm glad I did. I love the futuristic spin on the old classic Cinderella. It's creative, it's different & a lot more fun I think. I listened to the audio version & the narration was also fantastic!
There were several times though that I wanted to pull my hair out. For a cyborg with unique computerized capabilities, damn Cinder could be slow on the uptake! There were several occasions where it took her forever to grasp what was going on. It was excruciating!! Plus I wanted to slap her step-mother and step-sister! Cinder just let them walk all over her which was even more painful to take! I can't even count how many times I yelled at her through my CD player to just say something or do something, anything please! The tide did start turning for her at the very, very end, thank god, so hopefully in the second book she'll finally grow a backbone and some self-esteem because I can't take much more of that. They say a good book should take you through a range of emotions though and this one definitely did that!
I can't wait to start Scarlet. I was hoping to listen to the audiobook of it too but it's been checked out at the library. : ( I don't know how much longer I can wait. I may just have to go ahead and read the actual book.
