Reread review because I read this book before I actually wrote full reviews.
The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer is one of my all time favorite series. If you didn't all the books in the series are fairytale retellings. Cinder is obviously a Cinderella retelling and I absolutely love it. If you have read Cinder and didn't really enjoy it, I would recommend picking up the second book Scarlet because I know a lot of people really enjoyed that one even when they didn't enjoy this one.
Cinder follows a girl name Cinder and she is a mechanic who lives in New Beijing. She is a cyborg and lives with her stepmother and two stepsisters. There are also a disease spreading around the world and there are Lunars (moon people) who live on the moon. This is also a science fiction book that takes place in the future and that is all you need to know when reading this book because you can figure out what is going on quickly when you read it.
I love all the main characters but Levana. Iko is definitely my favorite in this book. I love her personality and she is such a good friend.
I think the main reason I love the Lunar Chronicles so much is the uniqueness of the books. Yes it is a Cinderella retelling but it has so many unique elements in it.
Rereading this book I noticed some things I haven't noticed the first time I read and I absolutely love that. The new things that I noticed added a lot to the story and I loved it.
Overall highly recommend you read this book if you haven't yet because it is amazing and everyone should read it.
