currently reading Cinder by Marissa Meyer (finallyyyyyyy)
This book is SO VERY COOL. I highly recommend it to ALL OF YOU. (Even if you *normally* don’t read YA or fairy tales.)
Also (another reason why this book is so very cool): I got a tiny mention in the Acknowledgments page.
Not that Ms. Meyer and I are buddies or anything, but we were part of the same writing/critique group a while back, and I did get to read the first chapter before it was published (published! in a book! with an awesome cover!) so it was super nice of her to include my name (as foreign sounding and hard to pronounce as it is).
I don’t want to seem like I’m bragging (because it’s not a big deal and I didn’t do much but proof-read it a little and gave some feedback), but man is it cool to see your name in print - in whatever capacity.
So yes: GO BUY THIS BOOK and support awesome fangirls like Marissa Meyer. (We totally need to start a Lunar Chronicles fandom too, so it’s very important that as many people read this book as possible. Fandoms of one are pretty sad places, you know. *I speak from experience*)
