It's been a while since I posted on this site. I thought it was about time. So here we go. I have had quite a time trying to find a good book to read as of late. Trying to find a book that was easy to get into seems to be getting harder and harder. However I finally found a book worth reading. The name is Cinder by Marissa Meyer.

This book was a surprising ride and nothing like the constantly reinvented Cinderella stories we read over and over, or watch over and over again. In this book it has it's own life with light tones of the fairy tale we love.

In this story you meet the well-to-do Cinder, who is a well known mechanic in a world full of androids and cyborgs. Cinder herself is a cyborg and like the cinderella stories has a evil stepmother and two stepsisters, which were necessary and beautifully written into the story. Cinder herself is very believable and a strong heroin you don't seen in books now a-days.Not just that, but the story devulges away from the whole reproduced Cinderella story by including an evil lunar queen bent on marrying the prince that Cinder has fallen for. There are many elements to this book that are rich in detail and intricately placed together to produce a beautiful, highly readable book. I would suggest that everyone that loves good sci-fi, love stories.

Oh and here's a promotional video.

I Am Number Four

This was a surprisingly good book. It read with ease and with the constant action and mystery kept you turning the page.

John Smith, aka # 4 is starting his life in yet a new place, Ohio, where the cows come home. He has been running for as long as he can remember. Not because he is in some witness protection company, no far worse. He isn't even human, his life and the lives of nine others are beyond important, they mean the survival of our own home... earth.

The story was amazing and not wanting to give anything away I leave you with that taste. I love the character John as a whole and his love interest. It was beautifully written and the ending was just as good as any blockbuster action film. Which this one is surprisingly going to be. It went into production months before its debue release as a book and the trailer is now out, as seen below.

With this much said, I do say this would be a good book for anyone over the age of fourteen.
