Another one of my favorite fairytale retelling! In fact, it has a good story that eventually, when we get to the end of it - there's that conclusion we're all going to be looking forward to! I cannot wait for that and so are the rest of you who knows that this series will kill us! Be prepare, bookworms!

 I can't believe myself that I had to wait a year to read this book. Why did I wait so long? I don't get myself sometimes. *shrugs*

I actually have seen the book in the school library. I wasn't interested and misjudged the book's cover and title. I am sorry. However, reading the book and it's synopsis, proved me wrong - turning my negative thoughts the other way, telling me to READ it and so I picked the book up and started reading it. It's great! I just so adore fairytale retelling!! You must read it! At the end of the book, it has gotten complicated for Cinder and in my opinion, I had the same confusion. A lot to take in. I could feel her emotion seeping out through her and letting the readers know her honest emotions -  raw and a rush of uncontrollable emotions. Someway or another, I understand why she must had felt that way.

Definitely unexpected happenings going on and actions! Love the actions! All the secrets yet to be revealed and lots and lots of those dirty secrets still hanging loose! Oh myself! Get a grip! Absolutely a book to check out and have your opinions and thoughts gathered neatly so as not to have the same emotions I have at the moment! Sequel will extremely get me literally killed. Let's do this!
