Cinder Review

I just took a deep breath. Let's pull this train back into the station for a second here. I hated Cinder. I hated reading it. I hated thinking about it. The only good thing about finishing Cinder was being able to write a review on all the reasons why. It was cathartic. Somewhere near the end of Cinder I got really curious about the Lunars and the impending shit storm. So curious, that I decided to read Scarlet. Now had I not already purchased it, I wouldn't have read it but there it was, with it's pretty cover sitting there on my Kindle waiting to be explored. I decided to go ahead and give it a try as so many of my friends assured me Scarlet was much better than it's predecessor.

Well, they were so right!

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) by Marissa Meyer

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)Cinder by Marissa Meyer

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

Buddy read with Ange and Cory

No spoilers, I'll let the author do that for you in the first 10%, colorful language abound!

Expectations are a hell of a thing, aren't they? They take something that would have been mediocre at best and instead it is revealed as the worst offense of all, the failure to live up to it's own potential. You know what I was thinking of when hearing about a retelling of Cinderella who happens to be a fucking cyborg living in China? Malevolent characters, political motive, social commentary, rich culture, sinister plot twists, and a tribute to the Cinderella fairytale we all know and love. I was buzzing with excitement. Instead it was an obvious, boring, slow paced, shallow, poorly executed loosely strung together heap of inconsistencies.

A Single Girl's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse by JT Clay

A Single Girl's Guide to the Zombie ApocalypseA Single Girl's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse by JT Clay

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


No Spoilers but probably colorful language!

What the hell did I just read? I have to say this was one of the more obscure books I've read and not necessarily in the good way. Half of the time I kept assessing the plot line and question what the fuck was even happening. The other half of the time I was actually laughing out loud. I can't remember the last time a character has made me laugh this much, I'm not sure anyone ever has before.

OK so Q is our MC here, she's a 22 year old teachers assistant in a kindergarten class. She's emotionally stunted, socially awkward, apocalypse obsessed, and her best friend is a six year old named Hannah.

Yeah, I told you, weird. She's also fucking hilarious.

This is me. I have finished Red Rising, I don't know what happened, I don't know how I got here. I have too many words and none of them seem to be the right ones. Red Rising is not something you will see or feel coming, but there it is suddenly fucking up your entire 2014 reading year. I'm not even sure what this book even is . Mr. Brown debuted his first installment of what promises to be formidable trilogy with a no holds barred approach to this genre, as in he made his own rules. He never once coddles the reader, but instead keeps a rhythmic onslaught of emotional pandemonium and you will follow him willingly.
