Feel free to leave some comment love for her. ^_^
In this prequel to Cinder, Glitches (a novella), we see the results of the plague play out, and the emotional and physical toll it takes on Cinder. Something that may, or may not, be a glitch…. Even though everyone in the household isn't happy Cinder is there, Peony welcomes her new sister with open arms. I immediately fell in love with Peony. Peony's wonder, acceptance and zest for life are endearing. I found humor in Marissa Myer's writing. I had previously read Cinder and loved it, so I was very happy to read Glitches. As I had thought, it is a wonderful glimpse into how Cinder became who she is today. If you loved Cinder, you will want to read her "bio" and meet her new family, with all the good and bad that entails.

I reviewed Cinder back in June of 2012. It was one of my first book reviews ever. I had posted it on Goodreads, but did not have a blog until shortly thereafter.
Cinder, the best mechanic in New Beijing, was working at the market when the Prince stopped in to have his android repaired. Even though she was a cyborg, she felt flustered and lost control of her brain's net connection. Her human part made it hard to focus. As she studied the android, they agreed to meet the next market day to check on the status of the repair. Adri, Cinder's "stepmother", hated her. Adri's husband had made them guardians of Cinder, an 11-year old cyborg. Adri owned her and the money she earned. When His Imperial Majesty Emperor Rikan came down with the plague, one of her "stepsisters" implied she ought to volunteer for plague testing. A royal research team had come up with the cyborg draft, choosing a number every morning from the cyborgs of the Eastern Commonwealth, using them to test for an antidote. Cyborg's were looked at as less than human. When Peony, the only human friend she had, came down with the plague, Adri had had enough. She volunteered Cinder for the draft. After all, she had no feelings, right? How was she going to survive? No one survives plague testing. Would she meet the prince again? What do you think? Cinder didn't remember anything before 11 years old . When she got to the research center, Dr. Erland began filling in some of the blanks. Even though I knew where this was going, I could hardly wait to get there. I didn't think I was going to be disappointed and I surely wasn't. I thought it was a unique twist on a known storyline and great fun to read. Numerous times I found myself laughing out loud. I have a love/hate relationship with it being a series. I hate not knowing the end, even though I know it. Know what I mean, lol? I am eagerly awaiting the next book.
In this prequel to Scarlet, we’re introduced to the army Queen Levana is building, and one soldier in particular who will do anything to keep from becoming the monster they want him to be. Is it an honor to serve in the Queen's army or is it a form of slavery? Will he be able to keep his humanity or lose himself to them. Goosebumps broke out on my arms and the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. Creepy, scary. Now, I MUST read Scarlet. Read this free on Marissa's Wattpad Page.
