We all love fairy tales, don't we? And Marissa Meyer's modern twist on the classic Cinderella is amazing! Thanks to Penguin, we have a link to an extract from Cinder, the first in the Lunar Chronicles. To read them, go: here. Also, you have to check out the Cinder Facebook Page: it's awesome! I've personally just started to read Cinder, and it is so, so, so good! I'm hooked! It comes out January 5th. There will be three more books in the Lunar Chronicles: one inspired by Little Red Riding Hood, one by Rapunzel, and one by Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. I'm very excited about all of them! :)
