I had heard great things about Cinder by Marissa Meyer and was so glad to be able to get an ARC of the book from Feiwel and Friends. I finally had a chance to read it and I was blown away by the great story. It combines some things I really like including fairy tale retellings and science fiction. This is the best book I have read in 2011.

The screw through Cinder's ankle had rusted, the engraved cross marks worn to a mangled circle.
Friday 56:
She wondered how long it would take for it to finish the scan and determine that she was a carrier, confirming that she was at fault. For everything.
