Recently I recommended a book called Cinder to my super sweet younger brother Nick. It might sound cheesy, but Nick is hands down the best little brother ever. Not only is he one of the funniest people I know, but he enjoys reading. I thought Cinder would be the perfect book for him because he loves good vs. evil stories, and Cinder is one of the best good vs. evil stories I've read. Plus, the technology and world building is very much his taste.

Anyways, Macmillian Teen recently posted about this super cool contest where they'll be giving away twenty ARC's (advanced reader copies) of Cress. This is one of the coolest contests I've come across, and I urge you to participate (sorry, super late notice, but it's better late than never). If you want to find more out about the contest click here.

Without further ado, here is what Nick thought about the book!

Me: Hi Nick.
Nick: Hi Lexi.
Me: After finishing Cinder, what do you have to say about it? Was it as good as you thought it would be?
Nick: It was better than I thought it would be. I saw Lexi reading it and I thought that it looked like a weird book, but I actually quite enjoyed it.
Me: Who's your favorite character? 
Nick: Iko! He was hilarious and had an entertaining personality. I also liked Prince Kai. He was actually pretty cool. I'd be mad if they got rid of him.
Me: Do you think this is a good book for boys?
Nick: Yes, however I think it is more targeted at the female audience. I think that the publishers should try and get more boys to read it by making the covers less girly. Some of the boys at school thought it was weird I was reading a book with such a girly cover.
Me: Do you think you'll be reading the next book?
Nick: Yeah, I do.
Me:  What do you think is going to happen in future books?
Nick: I think that there will be tension between Levana and the Earthen Union. I think that there may be war. (SPOILER) At the end I think Levana will die and Cinder/Princess Selene will marry Prince Kai.

Official Review
by Nick (scribed by yours truly)
4/5 stars

I thought it was a good book. There were no parts in it that were boring. I liked that because a lot of books can get really boring. It kept me hooked, mainly because it wasn't predictable. I didn't know what was going to happen next! I also thought it was a very fresh and original book. I've never read anything like it before. I highly recommend for you guys to go check it out. You will be quite surprised and you won't regret picking it up.
