Cinders Review

Cinderella's happily-ever-after isn't turning out the way she expected. With her fairy godmother imprisoned in the castle and a mysterious stranger haunting her dreams, Cinderella is on her own to discover true love untainted by magic.

It's sad when you get in your hands books that have a story with great potential, but they don't turn out well. And i really mean it, that if it was done better job with the story would be a great and enjoyable book.

Unfortunately, that didn't happen. It felt poor written, like the writer didn't put much love in it. Like it was done fast, just to be done. 
The characters didn't have depth. They were sallow with no personality at all. I couldn't understand them or connect with any of them. 
Everything was written in  hurry. I never had the chance to get my mind into one scene, and without even notice i was in another. It didn't gave me the chance to think about it or even just enjoy a scene. 
Plus, many parts were repeats of others. Not only the book was less than 200 pages, but it was repeating itself. I was like "oh come on...she said that at the previous page too".

I don't really recommend the book. 

P.S: I just saw that all the reviews at Goodreads give it about 3-5 stars. You may want to read those too before get to a conclusion.

  1. The cover for this one is lovely! It's a shame it didn't live up to your expectations and was poorly written. I probably won't be adding to my wishlist even though I love the premise- thank you for the honest review Yiota :)

  2. omg the cover is ugly. I would never buy a book with a cover like that!! XD and most of the times i hate a cover yiota makes a bad review (ok not always but...sometimes) XD


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
