Waiting on Wednesday: CINDER!!


The lovely Jill (a fellow Alabamian!) over at Breaking the Spine created the Waiting on Wednesday meme for us bloggers to showcase books we're waiting on.

This week's selection is a classic--retold in a way I've never seen before. The cover alone is what drew me in, but the actual description is awesome! Be sure to add to your TBRs this week's choice...


Cinder
By Marissa Meyer
Pub date 1/3/2012

product description from MacMillan Children's Publishing group website

Humans and androids crowd the raucous streets of New Beijing. A deadly plague ravages the population. From space, a ruthless lunar people watch, waiting to make their move. No one knows that Earth’s fate hinges on one girl. . . . Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future. In this thrilling debut young adult novel, the first of a quartet, Marissa Meyer introduces readers to an unforgettable heroine and a masterfully crafted new world that’s enthralling.


Two reasons I can't wait for this book.
1. THAT COVER **swoon**
2. THAT DESCRIPTION **swoons again**

Hurry up 2012!!
