My name is Jade and I am a new blogger on this blog. I don't read as quick as Katherine does but I will do my best to give you reviews and suggestions of brilliant books!
So as my first post I am going review two of my favourite books from an absolutely fantastic series...The first book in The Lunar Chronicles is Cinder, a gripping brilliant beginning, perfect to get you hooked for the rest of the series. Cinder is a mechanic living in New Beijing, working for her stepmother and trying to avoid the life threatening disease spreading quickly through the city. However her story takes a dramatic twist when she finds herself caught between a debate from one to planet to this....!
This story is gripping from the very beginning and with perfectly relatable characters - even if their world is completly different to ours! Myself and my friends were very lucky to be able to meet Marissa Meyer at a book signing of whome is really lovely!
This is a brilliant book and I hope you give it a try. Thank you for reading my first review and I hope you enjoyed it :)
