At the suggestion of my clever wife, I am reading a YA novel called Cinder by Marissa Meyer.
As the title suggests, it is a retelling of Cinderella, only Cinder is a cyborg caught between a raging plague on Earth and increasingly aggressive former humans-cum-aliens hailing from the moon. I’m not quite halfway through, but so far the story rocks. I’m genuinely surprised at how much I’m enjoying it.
So if you’re looking for something new to slap on your reading shelf, you could do far worse than Cinder. It really is quite good.
