While we’re on the subject, here’s a neat blog post about why reboots and bloated franchise sequels suck, as told through the vision of a bloated rebooted blog post. That description may not make sense, but honestly, you try describing what this thing is. (Scrimshaw)
The long and short of Cinder by Marissa Meyer is this: set in the future in ‘New Beijing’, the story is a retelling of Cinderella, except the title character is a cyborg. Alwaysanswerb says "if you’re a fan of YA sci-fi and haven’t read this yet, you definitely should." Check out her 4 star review. (Cannonball Read 7)
