I picked up Cinder, a retelling of the classic Cinderella, by Marissa Meyer from Amazon whilst staying with my parents in Aberdeenshire back in April. I’d never heard of the series before but who can turn down the promise of a cyborg mechanic Cinderella? No one, I tell you, no one with any sense anyway! And I really liked the cover and I can’t turn away from an attractive book cover. Call me shallow.
