City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare: Book Review! (Spoilers Marked)

Hello, everyone! I'm back with another book review. This review is of the newly-ish released book City of Heavenly Fire by Cassandra Clare. While I haven't been to any fabulous release parties or have been sitting in front of a Books-a-Million at midnight, I have tried to put this book off in fear of causalities of my favorite characters. But enough about that, let's get onto the review!

This is the last book of the six book Mortal Instruments series. Jace has the heavenly fire flowing through his veins, which other than being incredibly deadly, makes intimacy moments with Clary way more complicated. While Clary and the rest of the team are trying to help Jace with his fire problem, they are also attempting to find a way to stop Sebastian's plan to convert Shadowhunters and take over the world. So is everyone else, they're just doing a rather sorry job at doing so.

First off, I will say that there will be spoilers in this review. I'll be putting them closer to…

Cinder by Marissa Meyer: Book Review!

Hello, everyone! I'm back with another book review! Today, I'm reviewing Cinder by Marissa Meyer. This is the first book of the Lunar Chronicles. This seems to be really hot in Young Adult reading circles. I have to admit, there are some really cool things going on with this novel, but enough about that. Let's get onto the review!

Cinder is a retelling of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella. However, this isn't the classic Grimm version or the Disney-esque version that many of us grew up with. This is Cinderella with a science fiction twist. The story takes place in the future where our lovely girl Cinder works as a mechanic. Her step mother hates her and thinks that Cinder is the cause of her daughter's illness. If that weren't enough, Cinder deals with her growing affection towards the prince of New Beijing while avoiding the evil Lunar Queen. Oh, and Cinder is also a cyborg. In the end, I have to say that this is an interesting take on the Cinderella tale.
