review: 'Cinder' (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer

☆☆☆☆/5

Modern day fairytale retellings seem to be quite the thing at the moment. I was drawn to this series in particular for three main reasons –  there was a lot of positive hype surrounding it, it had a futuristic sci-fi element, and it was set in Bejing. 458 more words

Review: My Name is Rapunzel

My tale has been told again and again, and I’ve heard each one. Except for my hair, I barely recognize the pitiful renditions. Muddled versions, crafted to entertain laughing children…but the children wouldn’t have laughed if they’d known the real story. 249 more words
