Booking Through Thursday - Current Events

Its Booking Through Thursday again and this week's questions is a really easy one:

"What are you reading right now? (And is it good?Would you recommend it? How did you choose it?)
I am currently reading (as you can tell by the "currently reading" section immediately to the right of your screen) Cinder by Marissa Meyer. Its a young adult sci-fi/fantasy/dystopian... or something like that. I saw someone call it steampunk also, which I dont really know what that means, but what ever. So its all of those things, and it is set in New Beijing, after World War IV, about a 16 year old cyborg girl named Cinder. Its actually a retelling of the fairy tale Cinderella, and though it has some similarities, it has lots of cool differences and surprises to keep it fresh.

I am LOVING this book, just so you all know. I wont say much because I'll have a review up in a few days, but I am enjoying it immensely. I do recommend it to anyone who enjoys sci-fi or even any young adult dystopian. This is a little different than your average, but if you like variety, this is for you!

I chose this because I saw tons and tons of gushing reviews for it, and I was really intrigued by the premise and the cyborg Cinderella thing. Oh and I just love the cover art!  Stay tuned for my review of Cinder coming in the next few days.

What are you reading?

A. :)


  1. That's not my usual genre at all, but I have to admit that the books sounds interesting. Thanks. ☺

  2. I've heard some awesome things about Cinder. I have it, I just haven't gotten around to reading it. I'm thinking I'll get to it soon, though! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I still have yet to read Cinder. I keep saying I will but I haven't as of yet. New Follower


  4. Wow, this looks interesting and even the cover is very intriguing! I may have to add it to my wish list :-) Thanks for stopping by my BTT post, too! :-)

  5. Sounds like an interesting read.

  6. Glad you're enjoying it! I like Steampunk YA, so I may have to give this a try.

  7. I have Cinder out from the library, but may hold off on reading it until the Once Upon a Time reading challenge begins in March.

  8. This isn't my usual genre, but it really interests me. I did love the Hunger Games books which surprised me, though. So, I'm thinking I should give some more YA/dystopian books a try. Thanks for stopping by today!
